The New Petrie - The Modern Bride

Mr. Petrie wanted the tallest building on Wyndham Street, so he added an empty shell that remained unused for 136 years until it was restored as an elegant showroom for The Modern Bride. Six-metre (20-foot) ceilings and large windows create a beautiful backdrop for the wedding dresses. This appointment-only bridal boutique offers a unique shopping experience for contemporary brides.
