Wedding Show inspires bride to go into business

Business | Press | News

When bride-to-be Karen Steward visited The Cresset Wedding Show she had no idea it would change her life – in more ways than one.

Five years ago, Karen was searching for ideas for her own wedding. What she saw inspired her so much she has set up her own business and later this month is back at The Cresset Wedding Show in Peterborough as one of the exhibitors.

Now Karen Bristow and a mum-of-two, she said: “The Cresset Wedding Show was amazing. I was so impressed. The choice was fantastic and people were so friendly and helpful.”

Karen, who was a nurse, was particularly interested in the jewellery and bought a tiara to top off her wedding outfit. After a fabulous wedding in Rhodes, she came home to Spalding to realise there was a gap in the market for stunning wedding jewellery at affordable prices.

After research and a lot of creations for family and friends, Karen, 29, decided to launch Small Blessings this year and The Cresset Wedding Show will be the first time she has put her wares to the public.

She said: “I wanted to make something that’s affordable for everyone. Using freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals, they are so beautiful and really complete a bride’s outfit but often they have a budget that can’t always stretch that far.

“I work with the brides so it’s within their budget. Whatever their colour scheme or theme, we work together to incorporate this in the jewellery.”

The Cresset Wedding Show has everything brides-to-be (and grooms) could imagine to make the day of their dreams go without a hitch. From gowns and shoes, to rings and cars, cakes, photography, suit hire and much more, there is everything to make your special day perfect.

This year, The Cresset Wedding Show Live is celebrating its 10th anniversary and the highlight of the event will be two live fashion shows taking place at 12.30pm and 2.30pm where brides can see breathtaking dresses brought to life by models on a catwalk. Bridesmaid dresses, suits for grooms and outfits for the mother and father of the brides plus guests will also feature in the show.

The event will also give visitors the chance to take a look at the wedding reception facilities offered by The Cresset itself.

The Cresset Wedding Show Live opens at 11am on 28 February, with free entry and free parking.
