A Little About Us...

Since opening in 1999, originally as a corset specialist based in Camden, we have over the years changed our focus to specialising in tea length short bridal dresses. Our showroom operates by appointment only, so each of our customers has exclusive use of the showroom based in Deptford, London.

Our bridal collection is London's (and probably the UKs) largest selection of vintage style tea length and short bridal dresses and special occasion gowns. We have customers coming to us from all over the UK and Europe and even as far away as Australia and the USA.

Our main collection focuses on tea length and retro style wedding dresses that can be custom adapted in any length and in many colours to suit you. Whether you have in mind a Sixties style pencil number, or a full skirted Fifties style gown with coloured petticoats, we can adapt and adjust styles to suit you.

Our brand-new 2021 full length bridal collection has been carefully selected to appeal to the bride wanting something unique, individual and unusual. Some might still be in Ivory but with unusual laces, appliques and details, there is nothing ordinary about them.

We are open by appointment only. You can book to try on off the peg gowns you can take home with you on the day, or to order gowns which are made to order in sizes 6-26, please allow 6-9 months for this. Our friendly and knowledgeable bridal advisors cant wait to help you select your dream gown.

Late Availability

Last minute appointments available most weeks (Covid-19 allowing). Book on our website up to 6 months in advance.

Special Offer

NHS staff get 5% discount on production of their staff ID when purchasing their dress from FairyGothMother.

"I loved my dress and wore it several times at our wedding ceremony in San Francisco City Hall, and other places in San Francisco that same day (first 2 photos). Later that week, mid-October 2019, we want to Yosemite National Park in California and I wore the dress again. I LOVED my VERONICA BROCADE! And, I loved working with Emma to purchase it at FairyGothMother! Thanks for all your help!"

"I Had A Truly Wonderful Experience With Emma At FairyGothMother. I Came Into The Shop By Myself As A Nervous, Very Self-conscious Bride And Emma Put Me Right At Ease. She Let Me Try On Whatever Caught My Eye And Suggested A Few Other Pieces I Wouldn't Have Normally Chosen. Not Once Did I Feel Rushed Or Judged For My Style Choices. Emma And Sam Are All About Making You feel Good. And If You Feel Good, You Look Good Too!! Thank You So Much Ladies For Giving Me The Most Fun, Comfy, Swishy Dress Ever. I Can't Wait To Wear It In A Couple Of Weeks. Xx"
