HBBS Turns One!
The Hampshire Bridal Boot Sale officially turned a year old this October and what better way to celebrate than with the team at the exquisite Cams Hall in Fareham. To mark a great 2013, plus the launch of our parent company What Peggy Did Next, we welcomed a host of top suppliers from across the south to partake in an evening of drinks, networking and just a dab of inspiration.
Most importantly, we must say a few thank yous to the fabulous collaborative team on the night for making the evening quite so beautiful and such a success...
Paula Rooney Weddings for the stunning flowers and for unveiling her top trends in our 'Inspiration Station'. | Sera from Paper Magpie for our beautiful invites and for creating bespoke stationery on our Inspiration Station. | Sara from the blog Wedding Sparrow (don't miss a peek at those wonderful pages!) and MUA Victoria Bunting for also contributing to the Inspiration Station. | Ann and Gemma at Smallpiece Catering for our delicious birthday cake and toffee apples for our guests to take away. |
Ange Ward-Brown and Bex from Wild Aesthetic for demonstrating beautiful their tintypes. |
Emma the team from Miss Bush Bridal who showcased not only amazing dresses from their 2014 range but also keep guests entertained and awed with their models (with hair by Sharon at Wonderful Wedding Hair, adorned by Paula Rooney crowns and make-up by Carolanne Armstrong). | Jen and the attentive team from Kalm Kitchen who kept our glasses filled and created the most wonderful canapé selection that was truly a feast for the eyes! | The wonderfully generous Eagle Eyed Bride who bought along their awesome giant balloons complete with sumptuous tassels and the 'Love Bug' photobooth. | Lydia Stamps for helping out with photos on the night and who's great work you can see here!
We can't forget DJ Ryan B on the decks and Victoria Fergusson for lending myself, Karen, Helen and Paula beautiful accessories.
Indeed, there were many hugely supportive friends in attendance on the night but we must say a special thanks to Laura Caudery and Sandra Young from Parallel Venues and Cams Hall for hosting the evening with us and their ongoing encouragement.
Take a look at more of Lydia's photos here, plus, be sure to come back soon as we unveil those all important trends for 2014, as showcased in the Inspiration Station!
