Hope you all had a lovely Valentines day last week!
We are busy getting ready for the Wedding Fete in Didsbury on Sunday 2nd March. This will be the second time we have exhibited here, and we had a great time introducing Bruce our VW camper van to lots of brides and grooms from around the North West last year.
The Wedding Fete is open 11 – 4pm and the entry cost is only £1 which goes to the Parsonage Trust, a charity which maintains the amazing Old Parsonage venue where the fete is being held.
There will be lots of fantastic local suppliers who are based in the North West, so there will be lots of inspiration for your big day, whether you are just starting your planning or are arranging your final details!
We look forward to seeing you there!
We are so excited to announce our third wedding fair for 2013! We will be showing Bruce the VW camper van off at the amazing Brides Up North Vintage and Luxury Wedding Exhibition on Sunday 3rd November 2013 at the beautiful Bowdon Rooms in Bowdon, Altrincham.
We have been a long-time fan of the Brides up North website, and of the hard work Julia does, and we are thrilled to be part of one of her wedding fairs!
The entry is free and the event is on from 12pm – 4 pm. You can pre-register for one of only 200 VIP goody bags (also for free!) on the Brides Up North website here.
The address is: The Bowdon Rooms, The Firs, Altrincham, WA14 2TQ and there is plenty of free parking on site.
Hopefully the wild weather will have settled by then, so please come and say hello and see our wonderful Bruce the VW camper van for yourselves!
We are very excited to be attending our second wedding fair, only 1 week after our first ever wedding fair!
We had great feedback about Bruce our VW campervan at the Wedding Fete in Didsbury last week, and we are looking forward to introducing him to more couples on Sunday 6th October at the White Memoirs Vintage Wedding Fayre at Festival Hall in Alderley Edge.
The wedding fayre is free to attend, it is organised by Rachael and you can see a full list of exhibitors here on her Social Butterfly website http://www.eventsbythesocialbutterfly.com/events/white-memoirs-autumn-vintage-wedding-fair/
The Festival Hall is a a beautiful 1920s ballroom and we will be based outside the entrance, so please come and say hello and even have your photo taken inside Bruce the camper van so you can see how you would look on your big day!
This is our first blog post and we just wanted to let people know where we are up to with things! We will hopefully be updating the blog regularly with things we have been doing and how the renovations are going for Bruce the camper van.
Bruce is currently with Lee at Manflowers Volkswagen Restoration in Evesham, Worstershire, and he is being renovated from the inside out, with new paintwork, seats and the wheelchair adaptations. We are hoping everything will be done by March and we cant wait to take Bruce for a spin!
The website is currently being designed by Ian from www.swashandfold.com and we cant wait to see what the finished site will look like!
We are also working with a local design company to design a logo (very local, as their base is just around the corner from us!). Examples of their previous work is on their website at www.wearelife.co.uk and we are looking forward to meeting with Oisin this weekend to try and complete this.
We have a twitter account (www.twitter.com/GW_Occasions) and a facebook page (www.facebook.com/greatwhiteoccasions) and it has been lovely to connect with so many people who feel that our idea is a good one!
Please check back soon for further updates on how things are progressing!
