Wisbech has a new licensed venue for weddings, offering brides and grooms more choice in the town.

Octavia View, on South Brink, is a lovely Georgian building in the centre of Wisbech and is now promoting itself as a wedding venue.

The Lawrence Room, on the first floor of Octavia View, is licensed, as is ‘The Cube’, a stunning glass room off the Lawrence Room. And the courtyard outside is perfect for photographs and there is plenty of room for a marquee.

To add to the package offered by the venue, a new bridal shop has also opened in the building. Nicola Knowles, the proprietor of Bridal Connections, is also working as the wedding co-ordinator for Octavia View.

Nicola, who has 22 years experience in the wedding industry, said: “We offer a styling service to create a top to toe product. It’s all about confidence. If you feel confident then on your wedding day you are going to look and feel amazing, which is our goal.”

Nicola’s concept is called ‘Style Me Bridal’. The dresses on display in the shop are just a base and the price includes customising the wedding dress to suit each individual, giving every bride a unique dress. She also offers shoes and accessories to complete the look.
