| AISLE STYLE | Introducing Lyn Ashworth Bridal |
Celebrating over 30 years of award-winning wedding dress design, Lyn Ashworth is one of the UK’s leading British bridal labels renowned for crafting beautiful and stylish gowns. Each and every dress is designed and created at the newly opened design studio and showroom boutique on the Duchy of Lancaster Estate in Staffordshire by creative director Sarah Barrett and her talented team.
On a chilly October day, we at Save the Date Magazine drove to the beautiful converted barn boutique to meet with Sarah and her team and discover what makes the Lyn Ashworth dress experience so very special. Having arrived, one of our immediate impressions was the warm and welcoming atmosphere. Best described as a hidden treasure trove, we admired the gorgeous gowns hanging perfectly and chatted to owner Sarah and discovered all about the ethos behind this iconic brand.
Originally owned by Lyn Ashworth herself, Sarah took over the reins of the brand in 2010 when Lyn emigrated to New Zealand. Having worked alongside Lyn for many years, Sarah had gained a wealth of experience (not to mention lots of funny stories!) and was the perfect person to take this thriving business into the next chapter. Renowned for attention to detail and signature corsetry Sarah has continued to uphold the quality and couture ethos established by Lyn and is as passionate as ever about the ever-evolving bridal industry and the exciting developments which lay ahead.
Whether it’s an off the peg, specific dress collection brides are searching for (Lyn Ashworth stock the most elegant, dreamy dresses designed with the modern bride in mind) or a totally personalised, completely bespoke creation, Lyn Ashworth can deliver.
Sarah and her team pride themselves on their craftsmanship and all dresses from the initial pattern to the toile, the sewing, alterations and everything in between is done at their boutique in Staffordshire. We were given a tour of this unique place and were blown away by their professional and seamless design process – everything had a place and Sarah was incredibly proud of the way in which she and her team give their brides the most personal service.
The best way to get a real feel for the Lyn Ashworth experience is to make an appointment and go and see the team doing what they do. We can assure you, if you haven’t found ‘the one’ yet, you’ll be heading to the right place. You’re welcome!
