Established July 2020
Evolved was created and started its journey in July 2020 to bring fashion-forward, modern and unique designs to North Devon., where every dress is important and unique.
We want our brides to feel truly special, wearing a dress that feels it was literally made for them. It has to capture their essence! x
We are fortunate to be a member of the 'North Devon Wedding Network' where we collaborate on exclusive events, catwalks, VIP experiences and more. We have a lot planned for 2021 and 2022 so watch this space!
We frequently get involved with photoshoots from a selective team of top photographers from Devon & Cornwall, as well as in-house photography (photography studio room currently being refurbed) to help give a true reflection on how incredible our dresses are.
Evolved continually progresses with the times and the brides. We offer a premium and luxury service within a humble and loving environment.
Our selection of Designers are the spirit of who we are. We embrace dresses created from true vision and passion! When a dress is designed with love and creativity, you can feel it in the dress; every detail is thought-out, every trim is unique, and the structure designed for wearability and comfort.
We choose Designers who do it for the love of what they do, and where the dress is special and not a mass produced copy.
We have.a special relationship with all of our Designers, where we work as a team to bring new ideas and concepts to the brides of the South West.
In 2021/2022 we will be having a shift of Designers in the studio to ensure we provide our brides with looks and styles that they dream of.
Our aim is to offer brides ways to incorporate sustainable options... we wanted to make a more conscious effort to lower our carbon footprint. We don't claim to be perfect, there are things we can always improve upon and we are learning as we go along but hopefully some of our options can assist.
We decided to take some steps that could help, including:
Try our best to source in-stock dresses wherever possible
On hand to give brides tips and advice if they wish to re-sell their dress - we will even pay for their listing fee on www.stillwhite.co.uk
Our in-house fashion tailor can assist brides with re-design options on their dress after the wedding
Offer tips on donating their dress to charity
'I am Lynsey and I have been around bridal on and off for nearly 10 years and I have had some of the most fabulous experiences in my time. I have experienced owning shops with the normal, 'typical;' Designers with 'the more merrier' dresses and it was not quite right for me, so with Evolved Bridal I am following my own dream of selecting Designers that I truly align with, where each dress has been thoughtfully created, where quality overrides quantity, and where I feel so much passion for their brand and designs.
We initially received the keys to our 1st shop in Braunton the day before the UK National Lockdown in March 2020 (tad bad luck!) and officially opened the doors in July 2020. After several months, and then another lockdown, we moved our premises into the town after I fell in love with a gorgeous Georgian Building that offered us everything we could have dreamed of!
After another long lockdown and extensive refurb (with still more to come in mid 2021) we are on our way to turning the dream into a reality!
Although we offer a premium and luxury bridal experience for brides of the South West, we are super laid-back and full of fun and friendly beans! All of my consultants are so lovely, you will be sure to feel at home within minutes.
I would say I am not what people expect. I am a free-spirit by nature, which is why we love being near the ocean, but I do love a bit of walking, body boarding and hiking with my husband, son and our dog. We also love the mountains, anything that is beautiful helps to ground me and embrace any challenges that I may face.
I know one thing for sure, life is not about money or fancy cars - it is about love, experiences and following your dreams...And I intend to expand upon that as much as I possibly can x'
