Review: Winsor Bishop Bridal Brunch
24 Jul 2017
Bride-to-be Sophie Elliott attended a local Winsor Bishop Bridal Brunch: here is her review of the event
As a bride-to-be planning her 2018 wedding, I’m always on the look out for events that can help me in some way. So when I heard about the Winsor Bishop Bridal Brunches, I instantly leapt at the opportunity to attend. Promising to be an intimate event with just 15 spaces for brides and an exclusive selection of local suppliers, the brunch was free to attend and simply required registration.
On Saturday 10th June, my maid of honour and I met up outside Winsor Bishop in Norwich, notebook and camera in hand. We were greeted by the incredibly friendly and welcoming shop assistant, who sat us down, gave us both a glass of bubbly, and offered to clean my engagement ring.
After nibbling on some of the snacks and sipping on our glasses of prosecco, we made our way around the room to chat to each of the suppliers. From beautiful bridesmaids’ dresses to delicious macarons, there was a fantastic amount of variety in the suppliers that had been selected. There was also an assortment of Winsor Bishop’s own jewellery on show, including wedding rings, necklaces, and earrings.
The brunch certainly delivered on what was promised: it had a lovely intimate feel, with only a small group of brides-to-be and their plus ones. We were made to feel welcome, and free to ask any questions, as though the event had been put together exclusively for us. And the suppliers were perfectly chosen. Even though I personally didn’t book any of the specific vendors that were there, they certainly gave me food for thought.
At the end of the event, we each received a goodie bag full to the brim with exclusive vouchers and offers from the suppliers on show. Also included was a token for a free engagement ring cleaning and glass of bubbly with an expiry date of April 2018 – perfect for my May 2018 wedding.
I would highly recommend a Winsor Bishop Bridal Brunch to all and any brides-to-be that can make it to one. Unlike wedding fairs, which can get confusing due to the vast array of goods and suppliers available, the brunch was personal, peaceful, and made us feel special. The staff on hand at the event were exceptionally friendly, yet professional, and encouraged me to get hands-on with their selection of jewellery.
Whether you’re looking to book vendors, buy jewellery, or simply get some inspiration, I’d strongly suggest heading along to a Winsor Bishop Bridal Brunch near you. The next set of Bridal Brunches, which will be held in Cambridge, are going to focus on bridal jewellery and gifts. To register your interest to attend, email firstname.lastname@example.org
