The first bridal fair has been held at Octavia View, Wisbech’s newest wedding venue.
The Grade II listed property has recently been licensed for weddings and the fair was held to boost its profile as a venue and allow people to see what it offers.
Natalie Butler and Nicola Knowles from Style Me Bridal, which is based at Octavia View on South Brink, pulled together a host of businesses for the fair.
“We had lots of local businesses take part and it was really about showcasing them,” Natalie said. “We had a range of people come through who did know about the venue in Wisbech.”
She added it was a successful event for those who took part, including florists, photographers and stationery businesses, and believes everyone got at least one job out of the fair.
The local businesses are keen on working together more in the future and a regular networking event is in the planning. It is hoped to start this in October and would be an informal opportunity for local businesses to come together and share ideas to boost trade in Wisbech town centre.
