The story of a Lyn Ashworth Bride

We spoke to the beautiful Ice Cream entrepreneur, Eniko Kertész, prior to her big day to her dream man, Jonathan. She had a dreamy bespoke gown designed and made especially for her by Sarah Barrett.

The wedding, which took place o Sunday 5th July, 2015, was a very classy affair, simple but chic, very Dior.  She said: “I love pale pink and gold together.  I also have an obsession with feathers which was the basis to my wedding theme”.

In her initial appointment at the Lyn Ashworth studio in Staffordshire, Eniko brought with her a stunning pair of gold Dior heels which she planned to wear on her wedding day. This formed the inspiration behind her stunning, handmade gown. We think you will agree with us that Eniko looked every bit the movie star in her dress

The Stamford Bridal Rooms confirms 2016 collection

After an fun catch up with the team at White Gallery London, back in May, we are excited to announce that gorgeous The Stamford Bridal Rooms, Lincolnshire, is set to launch the 2016 Lyn Ashworth by Sarah Barrett collection later this year.
We had a chat with the owner, Aimee, about what she loves about the bridal industry and Lyn Ashworth!

 

Please tell us a little bit about The Stamford Bridal Rooms?

 We opened in 2010 with a desire to showcase the best British bridal design had to offer.  Five years ago British designers were not as well represented as they are now and ’boutiques’ in the true sense of the word were few and far between and we wanted to draw on both of those elements to create a really special and unique collection for Brides with an absolute focus on service.

 

How many years have you been in the bridal industry?

Five years – starting the day we opened our doors!  We’ve learned such  lot in that time!

 

What attracted you to the Lyn Ashworth by Sarah Barrett 2016 collection?

We have been stockists of the Lyn Ashworth collection since we first opened and have always loved the classical romance of the gowns.  This year we were blown away by the beautiful peach and blush tones and the metallic laces, just so different and refreshing.  As always the fabrics are to die for, especially the satin organzas and chiffon.

 

What do you think your brides will love about the collection?

We know our Brides are going to love the colour palette, it’s just nice to see something a little different to ivory.  Also the movement of the skirts, they are real kick-off-your-shoes-and-go-running-through-a-field dresses!

Private bride: Leah

We caught up with the latest Lyn Ashworth by Sarah Barrett private bride, Leah Henderson, on her romantic proposal story and why she wanted a bespoke wedding dress for her big day.

The proposal:

“When Neil asked me to marry him, it came as such a big surprise. We were spending a romantic day in London on New Years Eve 2014. We hadn’t been together for a huge amount of time, a bit of a whirlwind romance you might say, but we both new early on that we were ‘soul mates’.

We had a delicious lunch at The Shard, after which we went to the cocktail bar on the 52nd floor. Neil ordered champagne and then proposed. I was overcome with emotion, it was all so perfect.”

The big day:

“We didn’t want to wait a long time to get married and quickly booked a date, 11th July 2015, leaving us just seven months to plan everything.

Liverpool holds a special place in both our hearts, so following a service in a church near to our home in Cheshire we are hosting an ‘Iconic Liverpool’ themed wedding, at the Panoramic 34 in the city centre. Each of our table names carry a Liverpool theme including ‘Liver Buildings’ and ‘Anfield’ and our invites where based on old maps of the city.

We have a few surprises up our sleeves for our guests, we want them to have a night to remember!”

The dress:

“When I started dress shopping, I quickly realized that a bespoke dress would be best for me. I am quite petite and felt like lots of the dresses I tried on swamped my frame. I also wanted something quite unusual, something that no one else would wear.

Sarah at Lyn Ashworth has made my perfect dress! It was fantastic to have had so much input into the design, and she really understood my shape and just knew what suited me from the word go. Our wedding is late in the afternoon so I wanted something that would work for the church and also for the evening party, Sarah really achieved this. I can’t wait to wear my dress and know I will be sad to take it off at the end of the night.

 

I love the fact that my dress has been made especially for me, hand made in the UK from the finest materials. The service has been outstanding from first meeting to my actual wedding day, when it will be brought to me and fitted. No stress whatsoever, a complete bespoke service.”
