All alterations are carried out by an independent seamstress who is self-employed and visits Farrington Bridal on a regular basis.  Your alterations contract will be with the seamstress.

Fittings and alteration works may be carried out elsewhere if required, customers are not obliged to use the independent services offered by Farrington Bridal.

We only offer free storage if you take up one of our alteration packages (storage if you are not using our alterations service is charged at £100 per bridal gown and £20 per bridesmaid dress for a maximum of 6 months).

Sorry we do not offer alterations for garments bought elsewhere.
