Creative Brides Vintage and Unique Wedding Fair

21 Aug

The eagle eyed amongst you might have noticed that I have conquered the technical beast and input a wee widget to the side of this blog. Yes, we’re exhibiting at the Creative Brides Fair over 21 and 22 September at Scotney Castle.

We’re excited, having worked with one of the Creative Brides team members before, where she did a fantastic job. It should prove to be a great weekend, hopefully sunny and we’re looking forward to seeing lots of lovely brides there!

On top of that, if you pre-register before 10 September 2013 you’ll receive two free tickets to the gardens at the Castle!

The Perfect Touch – Emma’s Wedding Bunting

Sometimes, when you run a small business like ours, you’ll find yourself up sewing until midnight every night for weeks, getting an order finished. You’ll find yourself drinking too much caffeine, or stabbing yourself with a pin one too many times.

You’ll find yourself wondering why you ever thought it was a good idea to start this whole thing. You might think to yourself that you should be sleeping right now, but you’re not. You’ll finish the order, you’ll ship it, and the satisfaction of achieving something will slightly dim the stress. It takes the edge off, at least.

If you’re lucky, sometime soon after, you’ll get an email through with pictures like these attached, and a little note from your customer just like this:

I just wanted to send you a couple of pictures to show you how beautiful the bunting looked at the wedding – so many people commented on it as it has never been used at the hotel before. it really made the room, so thank you so much for creating it.

Suddenly you remember what it is about this job that you love. You get to help people make the memories they want. That makes the pin stabs, the caffeine shakes and the sleepless nights definitely worth it.

Heartfelt congratulations Emma, it looks beautiful. All the best for your brand new marriage, and thank you for letting bunted! be a part of it!
