Daunted by the prospect of organising your forthcoming wedding? Not sure who to contact? Want a recommendation on a local supplier?
A group of local wedding suppliers and Reverend Andy Bryant of St Peter’s and St Nicholas’ Churches have joined forces to form the Portishead Wedding Network. Chairperson Georgina Hunter, wedding planner at Inspiral Parties says, “Planning your own wedding is time consuming and stressful. It can take hundreds of hours to organise and then there is the added worry that suppliers won’t deliver.The aim of Portishead Wedding Network is to help take the stress out of organising the big day. Couples can waste arduous hours in front of the computer researching venues, bridal shops, florists, cars, planners, photographers and other suppliers and do not often realise that there are many top quality suppliers right here in their local area.”
At Portishead Wedding Network all new members are vetted and have been recommended and invited to join by other group members who have previously worked together. Vice Chair, Jo Ashman of Jo Ashman Weddings comments “Our group offers reassurance to couples that its members will provide a quality service so the couples can relax and enjoy their special day. Our members offer a personal approachable service with honesty and integrity being of the upmost importance.” There are a maximum of three suppliers for each type of business and it is proving so popular that there is even a waiting list for some suppliers to join!
The Portishead Wedding Network is open to any wedding suppliers within the local area. “We are always looking for new members to join our growing Network,” says founder member and Secretary, Joanna Brown of Katherine Jo Bridal Design. “Portishead Wedding Network offers couples a full range of wedding services from dresses to venues.”
Portishead Wedding Network will be holding its first wedding fayre for all future wedding couples from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 25 February 2012 at St Peter’s Church, Church Road in Portishead. There will be live fashion shows at 12pm and 2.30pm. Entry is FREE and each bride will receive a complimentary goody bag and a copy of the spring edition of West Weddings.
If you are a supplier to the wedding industry and would like to exhibit at the fayre, there are a few stands remaining. Please telephone 07775 783059 or 01275 846270 or alternatively email your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org and one of the members will contact you.
