In association with the EDP and sponsored by Dipples the jewellers, Bride: The Wedding Show returns to Dunston Hall on Sunday, 22nd April – here’s just a taster of what to expect…
Congratulations on your engagement. With a charming countryside location, choice of traditionally beautiful reception rooms, exquisite catering and extremely professional wedding planners, Dunston Hall creates an air of elegance and sophistication; the perfect setting for this unique occasion. Every detail of your wedding can be tailored entirely around you, with packages being flexible around your needs. Whether it’s your wedding reception, your ceremony, or both, the team will make sure your day is as individual, exciting and memorable as you have always dreamed. You no doubt have your own ideas about your special day, from the traditional to the creative and quirky; if you are looking for inspiration, the team can provide plenty of suggestions, or you’re welcome to take the lead and let your imagination run wild. The Dunston Hall team believe no two weddings should ever be the same.
The team at Dipples is all about understanding the emotions behind purchases, as this helps them find the perfect jewellery gift for their clients, whether that’s a diamond engagement ring that takes your breath away, a beautiful gemstone for someone special or an elegant watch simply because you deserve it. This is the reason why the majority of their business comes through referrals from existing customers. The Dipples team have the expertise that allows them to be able to source almost any jewellery item you could imagine. Further to this, if they can’t source it, they use the best designers in Birmingham and London to design bespoke jewellery items for you.
Jack Brock is a very special Confetti Pony who is a fabulous addition to any wedding celebration. A charming miniature Shetland at just 28” high who takes care of your confetti duties, his baskets are full of fresh rose petals picked the morning of your wedding from the rose gardens on Jack’s owner’s farm in Norfolk. Jack makes a great surprise for guests so is usually hiding outside the church or ceremony room while you are getting married. Jack can participate in photographs or simply entertain your guests with cuddles while you have your photographs taken. Making an aisle, lined with your guests, Jack walks down first, while handfuls of confetti are taken from his baskets and you then follow to be sprinkled. Jack will then hang out with your guests during your reception. He takes great selfies and his baskets have often been filled with champagne bottles.
The Wonky Donkey is a fully licensed mobile bar ideal for Christmas and New Year, parties, weddings, birthdays, engagements or anniversaries. It’s a fun way to add a bar to almost any venue. There is also an indoor mobile bar, so no matter what the occasion or location the team can keep your guest happy. As all parties and events vary, the team will quote you an individual price tailored to your needs. This depends on the number of guests and where you are. Booking the unique Wonky Donkey Bar couldn’t be easier; all you need to do is give the team a call, tell them where and when you are holding your event and reserve the dates you want with a small deposit.
