This last month has been extra busy for us as we have been organising our first ever Sturminster Newton Wedding Festival to promote and support local wedding/event businesses and compiling a very stylish Wedding Directory.

We were all a little nervous on Saturday morning, but we had no need to worry as it was the most amazing day with the sun shining down on us.  The Town was alive, buzzing, vibrant and beautifully decorated.

We had a wonderful mix of businesses in The Exchange.  A wedding dress exhibition in The Atrium with the accompaniment of a fabulous Retro singing duo, Belle Street Singers.

There was also lots to see outside, with horse boxes converted into a Tipple truck and photo booth and a camper van named Ruby to transport you to your wedding. Outside Yassars, whilst taking refreshments we listened to someone singing and playing the trumpet and a burst of Boogie Woogie on the
piano.  There were also 2 special guests, Willow and Starling, the Shetlands who were on their best behaviour and loved every minute of the attention they received.

An absolutely, fabulous and fun day. We cannot wait to do it all over again next year.

Many, many thanks to all the businesses that supported and attended making it such a success.  If you are interested in booking in advance for next year, Saturday 6th May 2023, or advertise in the Wedding directory please contact either myself, Cheryl in The Emporium – [email protected] or Jacqui Wragg [email protected]

Wedding Directories can be collected from The Emporium.
