“Whilst studying Fashion and Textiles at college followed by Fashion Promotion and Imaging at University, I worked in a wedding dress shop for nearly five years and I absolutely loved it! It was great helping brides-to-be find their dream wedding dress and something I always hoped to do myself. Opening the doors of Bridal Indulgence was an amazing feeling and I’m really excited to be able to help brides-to-be find their dream dress. I look forward to welcoming you to the boutique.” Kerri Ashworth, Owner of Bridal Indulgence
I caught up with Kerri, to give you (bridal babe) even more of an insight into why you need to visit ASAP…
#1 What makes you different to other bridal boutiques? Tell me a little more about the boutique space?
“Bridal Indulgence is tucked away in the English countryside, away from all the hustle bustle. It provides brides with a tranquil space to try wedding gowns on in spacious fitting rooms and with plenty of natural light.
Brides love coming to Bridal Indulgence as there are breath taking views, a customer car park conveniently located right outside and they have the boutique to themselves for their appointment. They are welcome to bring a maximum of four guests along with them to their appointment.
We operate on an appointment-only basis, to ensure each bride is the centre of attention when she comes to choose her dress. Appointments can be booked either online, via email or by calling the boutique. During every personal appointment, I will be on hand to help my bride into each dress whilst offering my expert advice to help her find her dream dress.
Every bride who purchases her dress at Bridal Indulgence is offered an alterations service which takes place at the boutique.”
#2 Why did you choose the designs you stock? What do you love about the collections etc?
“I stock Watters, Wtoo and Willowby which are all part of the same brand. I absolutely love the designer Vatana Watters as her designs combine traditional styles with a modern twist, that offers brides something a little bit different. Each dress has been carefully designed and exquisite fabrics have been used. My brides also love the many different colour options that they have, so that they can perfectly suit their skin tone. You won’t find these dresses everywhere which makes them that little bit more special. I have actually just chosen my own wedding dress and have picked one from the Watters collection!”
#3 What’s your background? How long have you been working in the industry?
“Whilst studying Fashion and Textiles at college followed by Fashion Promotion and Imaging at University, I worked in a wedding dress shop for nearly five years and I absolutely loved it! It was great helping brides-to-be find their dream wedding dress and something I always hoped to do myself. I went on to work in Fashion PR and Marketing for a number of years which I really enjoyed, but owning a bridal boutique was always in the back of mind. In the end, my now-fiancé encouraged me to just go for it, and the day after my thirtieth birthday, I went into work and handed in my notice. After a lot of research, planning and preparation, I opened the doors to Bridal Indulgence in August 2016.”
…and we’re super pleased you did!
