Lyn Ashworth coming soon to West Yorkshire

We are really excited to introduce our latest stockist, Bijou Bridal Boutique, based in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. We caught up with owner, Kerensa Dyson, to find out a bit of background about the boutique…

“The ‘dream’ started when my husband proposed to me and I started the exciting journey of looking for my own wedding dress!  I shopped fairly locally for my own wedding gown and absolutely loved the experience.  My ‘dream’ of opening my own bridal boutique had to wait as with all happy couples, the patter of tiny feet, came along, twice!  And then after a life changing experience living in Spain and moving back to the UK, with the children grown up, my ‘dream’ started to turn into reality and Bijou Bridal was born.

The name ‘Bijou’ means small and elegant and it suited the premises down to a T!! I think Bijou Bridal Boutique is unique because as well as offering first class customer service to the bride and her guests, it also only stocks British designed wedding gowns which are all made in exceptional quality fabrics including silk.  It’s unique selling point is promoting and selling only British designed wedding gowns and accessories and offering the bride a truly exceptional experience within the boutique to find the gown of her dreams. Brides should come to Bijou Bridal Boutique to enjoy the whole experience in a truly feminine and contemporary styled space along with my fabulous customer service!

 Kerensa’s top 3 tips for choosing the perfect wedding dress:


  1.   Even though you might have a particular style in mind, be open to suggestions, as the dresses look totally different on you than on the hanger.


  1.   Keep your appointment small and only bring along one or two people initially.  Too many opinions can be very distracting and at the end of the day, it is what you love not what your friends love!


  1.   Relax and enjoy the experience.

The story of a real bride: Laura Bagley

We are excited to introduce our latest bespoke bride, Laura Bagley. We catch up with Laura who spills the beans on her far-flung engagement, her winter wonderland wedding and why she has chosen to go for a bespoke wedding gown:

“Stuart and I got engaged in Australia by the Sydney Opera House after being together at the time for 10 years”

“We get married on 22nd December at Pendrell Hall, Staffordshire. We want to create a winter wonderland theme, with lights and candles, featuring gold and sequins for some elements.”

“I was recommended to visit the Lyn Ashworth by Sarah Barrett studio in Hanbury. Sarah was so accommodating and honest with the style of dress to suit me as I had no idea.

“I knew as soon as I researched the Lyn Ashworth design that the different styles were what I was about and different to the many other couture brands. I wanted a different dress and something that not any of my friends and family had seen. Sarah was fantastic and continues to be supportive and advice on what would be best for me.”

We will catch up with Laura after her big day and reveal her stunning gown.
