Lisa was amazing and I am so glad I found her! Before meeting Lisa, I had a few appointments cancelled at other dress shops and due to covid was told I couldn’t order a dress in time for my wedding. I managed to track down a sample of my dream dress and took it to Lisa! I was a bit worried she wasn’t going to be able to alter it as it was so heavily beaded … but I was so wrong ! Lisa made the dress fit me perfectly and made sure I was 100% happy and comfortable in it! The atmosphere was so relaxed and her studio was lovely - she had so many beautiful dresses in there! I can’t thank you enough for helping me sort my dream dress and I would highly recommend!!
I found Lisa via Guides for Brides. We had a couple of email exchanges before meeting up. I had found a picture of "the dress" on pinterest. From that one image Lisa created my dream dress, she sourced amazing fabric and made a stunning gown. It was put on pause because of Covid, but we picked back up in Feb 21 for my wedding in August and it was such a pleasure going for fittings. As on older bride, and it being a second wedding the dress was just perfect, I kept it on the whole day and received so many amazing comments. Lisa is an amazing dressmaker and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Having found Lisa through a tagged Instagram post, I was naturally nervous speaking to Lisa initially about making an outfit for my Wedding.
Lisa was amazing from beginning to end. She navigated me through the chaos of finding a wedding dress during the pandemic flawlessly. From FaceTime consultations, design and fitting, everything was perfect. She was there at the end of the phone when I had a doubting moments about my design and how the finished product would look and work.
Lisa designed the most perfect separates from a vision I had and was so flexible with date deadlines and is honestly one of the most lovely people I have ever met!
If you are in any doubt about having a dress made rather than off the peg, do not think twice, her skills are second to none and uses the most incredible fabrics!
The final product is to die for, I cannot thank you enough Lisa!
Thank you so much for the kind words Ellie, your dress design was gorgeous and so much fun to work on. Looking forward to seeing the photos of your special day!

I was quite nervous about altering my wedding dress as it was so heavily beaded. Lisa did an amazing job of working with the intricate details and altering it to fit me perfectly. She was also just a dream to work with in general - throughout the difficult covid restrictions and some other personal circumstances, I had to keep quite flexible and plans were changing every week. Lisa was super positive and flexible which was a huge help. Her show room was lovely and it was great to see some of the dresses she had made - if I didn't already have a dress I would have LOVED one of hers. Would highly recommend!
It was so lovely to meet you Sarah and help you make your wedding dress perfect. I'm so glad we were able to work around all the restrictions and that your day was joyful. Thank you so much for the review

Lisa was amazing, and went above and beyond to help me find my perfect dress. We were in full lockdown at the time and a lot of bridal shops told me they wouldn’t be able to help. I finally found Lisa who had managed to successfully take the process online. We did a number of virtual fittings to chose the dress, and then to make sure it was the right fit. The result was STUNNING. I’m so glad I found Lisa, she was such a joy to work with in the run up to the wedding. Hugely talented, creative, unflappable even during COVID times and an all round awesome human being. I would definitely recommend Lisa Lyons Bridal to anyone in search of a beautiful wedding dress.
Lisa Lyons is as lovely as the dresses she makes. I met Lisa at an open day and liked her instantly. Even though she was packing up to leave after a long day she was happy to chat with me as I was having problems with the retailer who was supplying my dress and also needed a bespoke bridesmaid dress. Lisa offered to take a look at my dress and carry out any alterations that were required. From the first point of contact the level of service I received was exceptional. Lisa responded to any questions instantly. Lisa designed a bridesmaid dress which was an unusual colour and also made me a lace bolero to match the lace on the bottom of my dress. Her attention to detail was amazing and she sourced materials with perfection. Lisa was always welcoming, friendly and professional when we visited her beautiful boutique. She was always waiting with a smile and a cup of tea. Lisa has talent in abundance. Her unspoken ability to know exactly what you want and her eye for detail is admirable. In our time with her she certainly went above and beyond. She even hand delivered the bolero she made for me to my house. Lisa was like my fairy godmother, she turned a dress I was unhappy with into one I felt stunning in and our bridesmaid looked absolutely beautiful. I can't praise her enough.
When I was introduced to Lisa I found the whole process so much more comfortable and reassuring. My dress would be fitted to me and I didn’t suddenly feel I’d bought a dress off the shelf that I’d have to starve myself to get into and have the fit as an added pressure. I had some ideas of the designs I liked and felt totally involved in the process of making my dress. I could literally pick elements of dresses I liked and piece them together and Lisa sourced the most incredible collection of fabrics, laces and trims to choose from. If something wasn’t quite right I could change it at anytime, it was amazing to see from one fitting to the next, the vision come together. I can’t recommend bespoke enough – this is your day to feel incredible and to have something made from scratch just for you is so special. I was comfortable all day and didn’t have to worry about any elements of the dress as we had thought through the dress to fit my day plans (dancing / heels and flats etc!) Thank you Lisa
