In the gear up to opening our boutique, we met up with the lovely Lucy Millard of the Newark Advertiser and her photographer. It felt important, to not only announce our arrival to the brides out there, but to celebrate the journey made in getting here.
Opening and running a business is no easy feat, despite how it may sometimes look on The Apprentice. It takes vision, determination, tenacity and lots of support from your most nearest and dearest..a bit like when you are organising your wedding!
As a nurse and for a short time a midwife, I have enjoyed a privileged career, from caring for people as they leave our world, to catching and celebrating with joy the new ones that enter it. Such monumental milestones in peoples lives that having someone who cares, understands and walks alongside you during this, can make such a difference.
Getting married can equally bring with it mixed emotions from joy and happiness to anxiety, stress and worry. Setting up Iconic Bride is about bringing that same level of care and passion into bridal, creating brides that people will remember but also giving a special and dedicated experience that will also be remembered too.
I hope you enjoy reading the short feature which can be found on our facebook page or Newark Advertiser.
