Based on the beautiful Duchy of Lancaster Estate sits the couture design house of the renowned, made in England bridal wear, Lyn Ashworth England.
The head of design, Sarah Barrett, draws her inspiration from all sources including nature and wildlife to artwork, jewellery and architecture. Her gowns are designed and created to be worn, a Lyn Ashworth bride can choose from the collections with ease, knowing that the dress they select will fit impeccably and be an extension of their own style and personality. The beauty of Sarah’s gowns is that they are for all women, irrespective of age and size.
Every piece from the Lyn Ashworth England collection is handmade in the studio in Staffordshire – from the first stitch to the final embellishment. It is a labour of love and the Lyn Ashworth England team believe that brides deserve the finest quality on their special day.
The design house spends a lot of time sourcing the most exquisite fabrics, lace and finishings to ensure the dresses feature unique features and design, coupled with the couture element of the business.
The design studio and showroom boutique is situated in a beautiful barn conversion on the Duchy of Lancaster Estate, in Staffordshire, where every dress is designed and created by Sarah and her talented team. At the boutique, brides will find a treasure trove of breathtaking bridal gowns; the Lyn Ashworth dress is the epitome of timeless elegance and romance made with the modern woman in mind.
Each bridal appointment starts in the showroom boutique adjacent to the studio; with a one to one consultation with Sarah or one of the Lyn Ashworth team. Over a cup of tea, a glass of bubbles or even a sneaky gin cocktail, they will take the time to get to know you. Appointments are never hurried; we take the time to talk you through our different style options, fabrics, colours and trimmings. The joy of this process it that no bride is the same, allowing for new and exciting ideas to develop as we explore the many options with you.
Using Sarah’s signature corsetry, each dress is handmade in England to exacting standards, with the additional options of custom makes, made to measure fittings and bespoke design services.
