Tah dah!! I am so pleased to introduce the brand new Bridal Sessions, an exciting wedding workshop for newly engaged couples.
What are the Bridal Sessions?
This is a brand new concept to help brides and grooms get ahead in their wedding planning in a fun and informal workshop style afternoon. I had this idea last year and have just been waiting for the right time to introduce this to the wider world, so I am super excited. I know that for many brides and grooms the thought of trekking round multiple wedding fairs is just not appealing! Not only do you lose precious time but it can be overwhelming and let’s face it you can easily end up being pushed into booking consultations and services which you either don’t need or just aren’t right for you. You will end up back at home with a pile of leaflets and business cards and a head swimming with confusion and overwhelm.
So this is why The Bridal Sessions are different…. using my 7 years of wedding planning experience, I know what brides and grooms most need to know in the early stages of planning their own wedding. I have tailored this workshop to introduce you to a team of amazingly talented local wedding pros who really know their stuff and are absolutely critical at this point in your planning journey. One by one, throughout the afternoon you will get the chance to ask them questions and learn about each service. This is not an afternoon of pushy sales, you will NOT be sold to! Each supplier will be chatting through their top tips that you can then take away and use in your own research, being more clued up and prepared, making your task ahead quicker and more streamlined. Topics such as how to put your own wedding style into your wedding stationery, how can you make your flower budget stretch as far as possible, what is a budget and how to create it, how to use Pinterest in your wedding planning, what questions should you ask your photographer, what you need to know about wedding make-up to make sure you look your best on your wedding photos, the importance of a pre-wedding face routine to get your skin in tip top condition so you look amazing, will all be covered, plus loads more and you can grill each supplier and ask any question you want! After the workshop you will also get access to a private facebook group where I will be on hand to continue answering any questions that pop up in your wedding planning for a further 8 weeks!
There is only space for 30 lucky brides, grooms and their crew, and each of you will receive a gift bag stuffed with more inspiration, wedding planning templates and gifts. There will be some delicious cocktails on arrival and a specially created menu of tapas delights from the fabulous Alex Chef to keep you fuelled during the afternoon.
