Welcome to Brides of Merivale

South Island’s leading bridal boutique.

Brides of Merivale was established in 1998, by Lisa Dermott. After working for many years in what was commonly a ‘Made to Measure’ bridal industry, Lisa wanted to bring designer Ready Made Gowns to New Zealand Brides.

Brides of Merivale quickly established themselves as the South Islands “Go To’ bridal destination, exclusively stocking leading international brands BellaDonna, Watters, Wendy Makin, Caleche Bridal, Peter Trends.
