Hampshire Bridal Boot Sale - September 2013

Here at HBBS HQ we're happy to report another successful sale on Sunday 1st September. Over 400 brides and grooms-to-be came to puruse stalls full of newly-weds pre-loved wedding wares, fab finishing touches and made the most of the glorious sunshine with our array of food and drink options out on the lawn!

To name but a few highlights, the Smallpiece pop-up tea room once again provided anything from afternoon tea to their famous Millionaire Shortbread (we might have 'tried' a slice or two of that ourselves), whilst indoors photographer Ange Ward-Brown and her partner Bex unveiled their tintype portraits complete with on-the-spot sittings and a mobile dark room. Upstairs guests could have a consultation with jewellery designer Olivia Lowe, not to mention getting a makeover from the Fairy Godmothers in the Beauty Boudoir.

If one of our sellers caught your eye but you didn't quite get the chance to chat, drop us a line here. Also, check out our fab line-up of awesome collaborators and suppliers below who could just help turn your big day in to something really rather beautiful.

We must say a huge thank you to everyone that came out last Sunday and most of all to our hosts Cams Hall who took care of us so very well.

Its been quite a month over at HQ, as well as the sale we also had a mention on Love My Dress and our very first set of team photos! Don't miss all our event photos plus more updates over on our Facebook page!
