A BRIDAL shop in Northwich has received a national award, voted for by brides-to-be.

Sarah’s Wedding Boutique, in Witton Street, was chosen by brides-to-be from across the UK as the best ‘Dress & Accessories Supplier’ for 2018 by Bridebook, an online wedding planner.

Sarah Dean, manager of the store, said: “'I would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us, we really do appreciate your support and we would not have received this recognition without each of our amazing customers.

“Seeing my business grow from strength to strength due to the continued support and dedication from my team, designers and customers. We have put so much time, energy and hard work into creating our bridal haven, making this achievement more than just an award on both a personal and professional level.”

The awards focused on the reviews given real couples who tied the knot in 2017, and the Northwich-based bridal boutique has been crowned as best in the country for the dresses and accessories it has supplied.

Having started as a bridal dress agency in Nantwich, back in 2012, the two-storey wedding boutique has been trading in Northwich for the last two years and put their success down to the variety of dresses they stock, catering for all tastes, shapes and sizes.

The independent retailer has introduced a range of gowns for the fuller figure, opened a dedicated bridesmaid room and additional changing rooms, said to provide ‘absolute exclusivity in a welcoming yet relaxed environment’.

The boutique recently appeared on popular E4 programme, ‘Don’t Tell the Bride’ in its new series this January.

Sarah said: “It is very humbling to see so many of my previous brides revisiting with family and friends.”

“Going forward we will continue to listen to our customers wishes, keep on top of new trends and support the local community and beyond.

I'm very proud of what we have achieved so far. I'm excited to see what the future holds!”
