Reflection on what is important to us all

Access Date & Time: 2019-09-06

It is the 26th December, the day after the special time of the year. It is a great time for reflection on the year that has just been and also looking ahead into the new year.

One of those topics I am reflecting on is individuality! I guess you can say i have always been a bit of a follower. I love looking at wedding trends and trying to replicate some amazing ideas I come across (particularly on Pinterest). However, the other day I met an amazing couple that we are hosting their wedding in 2018 and they have come up with some of the most quirky but interesting ideas which really bring their individuality to their wedding. Their guest are going to be blown away and I cannot wait to see it all come together.

But it also made me realise how commercially driven the world is today. We all like the same thing....All the businesses push us to the think the same way.....and we all get given boxes that we need to stay in (figuratively speaking). This is not a good thing as this will stifle our creativity and individuality.

So here is my lightbulb moment having had this reflection....It is something that we will refuse to do at Bridgewater.

We will NOT tell our couples how they should get married. We will NOT tell our couples what their wedding should look like.

WE WILL give them a canvas to draw on and WE WILL guide them if they are stuck. But Bridgewater will be about allowing our couples to explore their individuality and make their wedding their own.



In September 2017 we celebrated my mothers 90th birthday at Bridgewater Estate.  The Buffet menu was fantastic and afterwards the guests were able to wander around the beautiful gardens.  An enjoyable day was had by my thirty guest.  Thank you Tracey and Justin (owners) for making this day so special
