What is a trunk show?

To celebrate our new label Wtoo by Watters we will be holding a trunk show 17- 19 May 2019.  It’s an event no serious bridal shopper should miss!  If you’re not entirely sure what to expect we’ve put together a few FAQs for you…

What is a trunk show?

A bridal trunk show is a special event at which we loan extra gowns from the designer (Wtoo) for a limited time. 

What makes it different to any other day in the boutique?

On the road!

Wedding fair season is upon us once again so team EWB will be hitting the road!  We start off at North Lakes Hotel and Spa this Sunday where a selection of our beautiful gowns will come to life as they're showcased on the catwalk.  North Lakes Hotel has recently undergone a massive renovation and it looks fab - come along and see us this Sunday! The hotel will be full of amazing wedding suppliers so you can have a chat and let us help you plan your special day.

Our first birthday!

After a VERY manic 5 weeks of renovating, sanding, painting, steaming and cleaning we finally opened our doors on 25th August 2017.  We really couldn't have done it with the help of our amazing family and friends, for this we are forever grateful.  To finally achieve your ambition is a huge milestone, we're so proud - and despite a few 'tense' moments whilst doing the work - we're still married! 


Sunshine and Flowers!

Don't want to jinx it but we are having fantastic weather right now!  Ok so it's supposed to rain a little tomorrow BUT it's for one day so we can cope with that can't we.  The garden won't need watering - every cloud etc..  There's something about this lovely weather that puts us in a good mood - everything seems easier, we have a spring in our step and we're just generally lovely to each other.

Designer Weekend 18 - 20 May 2018

We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the Royal wedding than to host a fantastic selection of British designed gowns in our boutique!  Ellis Bridals was established over 100 years ago and is now one of Britain’s leading bridal labels - we’re really proud to be working with them.  

For one weekend only we are playing host to the best gowns in their collection, giving you the opportunity to try them on in the comfort of our dressing room.  We’re certain you will find ‘the One’!  

The Year Ahead

Phew, we've had a busy few months choosing our styles for 2019!


First stop was Madrid for the La Sposa preview of their new collection.  So many gorgeous wedding dresses, I wanted them all!  The collection consisted of almost 100 dresses - it took us a solid 8 hours to make our selection, they were all stunning.  We're really happy with our chosen gowns and can't wait until they arrive later this year.  


Valentine's promotion!

So it's already February, where did January go to so fast?  Never mind, let's take this moment to embrace St. Valentine's Day!  Yes your other half should be romantic EVERY day of the year, but let's face it, not many are - so Valentine's Day simply reminds them to show you how much they love you.  It doesn't have to cost the earth either - a takeaway, bottle of wine and good film mean just as much as a slap up meal for two in a swanky restaurant - or even a simple card and an 'I love you' can be enough.  Whatever it may be, it's just nice to know that you're in someone's thoughts.

Inn on the Lake

So we had the opportunity of attending the Inn on the Lake Winter Wedding Fayre a few weeks ago.  This was our third wedding fayre and by far the largest!  Over 400 people were expected through the doors with only one thing in mind – weddings!  From start to finish we were busy talking to brides to be and their families from all over the country.  I love hearing everyone’s plans for their own big day, the creativeness and individuality is amazing.
