The team at Ava Rose Hamilton are passionate about giving brides the very best experience when it comes to finding the perfect wedding gown.
And while the two luxurious boutiques have attracted clients from all over the UK and from the celebrity world, each and every bride is treated with the same exacting attention to detail.
Having just opened a fabulous new three-storey boutique in Colne to complement the original Ava Rose Hamilton bridal showroom in Silsden, Yorkshire, means that Ribble Valley brides have one of the best bridal services in the country at their fingertips.
The collections at Ava Rose Hamilton have all been carefully hand-picked: “We have chosen our designers very carefully over the 30 years we have been in business,” says Paula Chappell, who heads up the family-run company, which is renowned for its meticulous customer service.
The new store in Colne, which replaces the smaller Barrowford boutique, has two floors of gorgeous gowns and the third floor is dedicated to the talented seamstress team, including Terry, who is one of the top seamstresses in the UK having worked with designer Paul Smith.
Having such an experienced team at Ava Rose Hamilton gives every bride the opportunity to call upon their expertise and guidance when choosing a wedding gown that can be individually tailored to a bride’s requirements.
Featuring names such as Essense of Australia, Stella York, Ian Stuart, Enzoani, Martina Liana and Eliza Jane Howell, famed for her stunning beaded, vintage styles, means all discerning brides can choose from some of the best collections in the world.
And while the collections are stunning, they are ultimately accessible in terms of price point and style. Ava Rose Hamilton brides make a lifestyle choice when they choose to visit – it is a luxury experience combined with an opportunity to meet bridal industry experts during a complimentary consultation.
The new boutique in Colne has been especially designed to make choosing your wedding dress a memorable occasion – not a stressful one! There are three huge luxurious, private relaxation areas incorporating comfortable sofas where the bride and her family and friends can sit and enjoy a complimentary glass of fizz while talking to the experts and selecting gowns to try in the large, roomy changing room with huge vintage-style mirrors.
“We really get to know our brides and I think that is important. If a bride comes in for a consultation we chat to her – we get to know her likes and dislikes when it comes to her dream wedding dress. We are all very approachable and friendly,” says Paula.
“We really have a passion for what we do and we meet some genuinely lovely people.”
