Bridal entrepreneur shortlisted for wedding award

A Yorkshire-based wedding start-up has been shortlisted for a national wedding award.

The Bobby Pin, which designs and creates bespoke bridal accessories, has been nominated in the Best Bridal Accessories category of the British Wedding Awards.

The business was set up by Lisa Steane earlier this year, after she swapped her career as a design buyer for her passion fashion design.

After taking a millinery course at Leeds College of art, Lisa realised her true calling was bespoke bridal head wear. Armed with her passion behind her she launched The Bobby Pin, to add the wow factor to a brides wedding day, in August this year.

Lisa’s designs have been shortlisted in this year’s British Wedding Awards just months after the company’s launch. The awards showcase the best of the wedding industry, with categories focusing on all aspects of wedding design.

The awards celebrate the UK’s favourite wedding companies as voted for and chosen by real brides. The awards celebrate everything from British bespoke bridal wear to stationery.

Lisa said: "It is a fantastic achievement to be shortlisted in The British Wedding Awards having only just launched this year. I am up against some tough competition including national brands but I think we are seeing a revival for hand crafted, original items and I am proud that my Yorkshire business is in the running for such a prestigious award!"
