This week I’m giving all Brides local to Swindon an insight to the ever popular Swindon Wedding Club ahead of their VIP Showcase on Sunday 24th April.
As an independent wedding planner I work with a range of suppliers to suit my clients budgets and personal taste and although I’m not affiliated with the Wedding Club I do love how much they care about their couples.
Here is a short insight into each of the companies who make up The Swindon Wedding Club.
Unique Weddings I love being a part of Swindon Wedding Club. When thinking up the idea for the club (back then known as my associate business list) I never in my wildest dreams thought that it would grow into the supportive brilliant group it has become. I am so proud of all of the suppliers we currently have and love knowing that each time we knock a little bit off that not only are we helping local business to thrive but giving a little bit back to those couples who make it possible.
Linda’s Vintage Hire provide a stress free vintage hire service for all occasions. If you are organising an event with vintage flare, we can supply furniture, vintage china and a range of props and accessories to give your day that much loved nostalgic feel. So if you love vintage we are your one stop shop to help you create the day of your dreams.
As a sole trader Swindon wedding Club has enabled me to collaborate and get to know like minded people. I feel I am part of an energetic and enthusiastic group who work seamlessly together.
