British Bridal Exhibition, Harrogate, September 2010

Charlotte Balbier and her team have just returned from BBEH! We thoroughly enjoyed the show this year and had some fantastic feedback from our stockists...they just can’t wait to take delivery so all the fabulous brides-to-be can go in store and try them on!!It was great to see everyone, including some new faces, and Nicola loved finally being able to put faces to names.
Charlotte created her stand with a very boutique feel, so to be completely on brand, with lots of pink, cushions, marshmallows, pink bonbons and, of course, cupcakes!!!

There were 4 shows, Sunday and Monday, on the stand so that everyone could see the new 35 dresses on the beautiful models. They paraded The English Tea Party Collection to sounds of Eliza Doolittle and Paloma Faith, whereas The Sabella Collection took a more Italian/Spanish influence. The finale had everyone singing and clapping along to Florence & The Machine’s ‘You’ve got the love’!!!
The shows were packed, with customers having to fight over seating, some even ended up standing in the aisles!!! We had our lovely current stockists, as well as some new ones, and fashion editors from Conde Nast Brides magazine, You and Your Wedding, Cosmo Bride, Wedding, Perfect Wedding and Wedding Ideas magazine all coming to view the stunning new CB 2011 collection!!!

Our day didn’t stop at the Exhibition either!! In the evening Charlotte put on her glad-rags, heels (another pair!!!!) and let their hair down to spend the evenings with the fabulous company of her team and some special guests. We went to Restuarant Bar & Grill, The Royal Baths Chinese Restaurant and William & Victoria...the food at all of these locations was fabulous!!
Look out for some images from the show soon!
Big love and tank you to all who attended BBEH September 2010 and for making the Charlotte Balbier show a HUGE success!
