As the Autumn evenings start to draw in, and the weather turns cooler, what better pick-me-up than a trip to the Harrogate Bridal Show for a weekend? Held at the Harrogate Convention Centre, Anya and Bethany spent 3 days meeting, greeting and browsing at the Mekkah of the UK wedding industry, and choosing all manner of new dresses for our 2019 collections, including Essense of Australia and Stella York.
There was certainly a buzz of excitement in the air as hundreds of designers and wedding suppliers exhibited their huge range of products, from dresses and suits to veils, accessories, and makeup. Anticipation grew as new collections were revealed with stunning catwalk shows, beautiful exhibitions and (to Bethany’s delight!) free sweets and treats!
It’s a long three days with so much to see and do, but what girl doesn’t love shopping, especially when you have the chance to gather your favourites together. After much discussion, Anya has settled on her newest additions to the boutique, due to arrive with us in the new year. To say we are excited to see them would be an understatement, and we’re sure that you will be, too!
Of course, it’s not all hard work, and the pair thoroughly enjoyed their bubbly provided by the VIP lounge, as well as catching up on the year’s events with other boutique and business owners from all over the country. Although the wedding industry can be tough competition, we all love our jobs, and it’s important to us all to maintain relationships and support each others’ efforts. As a boutique with a strong belief in personal and attentive service, we love to share our ideas and highlights from the busy wedding season with each other.
We can’t wait to share our new dresses with you, so keep your eyes peeled for our announcements in the New Year 2019!
All our Love,
Anya Bridal Couture
