Ailsa Rider and Emma Bunting toast their new venture Flawless Weddings

A NEW outlet in Morpeth offers engaged couples a helping hand with their planning for the big day.

Flawless Weddings and Events provides wedding co-ordination, event dressing and hire services.

The showroom on Newgate Street displays an extensive range of items in addition to showcasing some of the North East’s leading wedding suppliers.

The selection of suppliers in the showroom will rotate, so couples will be able to find out more about a large selection of companies – from beauticians and cakes to photographers and venues.

There will also be monthly Bridal Evenings, where brides-to-be can meet a group of selected suppliers and receive valuable advice and assistance over drinks and nibbles.

Flawless is also working in partnership with the seven businesses at 42 Bridge Street that each provide something for brides and/or the wedding day.

Managing Director Ailsa Ryder said: “We’ve had a fantastic response to the opening of the showroom and appointments are already booking up very quickly.

“Our vision is to create a space filled with beautiful and unusual hire items and offer the very best selection to our customers. In addition, the showroom will act as a base for our event co-ordination service.

“Morpeth is a real destination for brides and we’re delighted to add to the proposition with something extremely creative and different. I’m a third generation business owner in Morpeth and the support from other businesses is not at all surprising – we have a community spirit like no other.”

In addition, Emma Scott has decided to move her Emma Bunting business into the building.

She said: “I’ve been looking to expand what I’m doing and I needed more storage space, so I was delighted to get the opportunity to go into Flawless with Ailsa.

“We’re excited about the new venture and I think it will be very beneficial for my business because there is a big demand for wedding bunting.”

The showroom will be open Monday to Friday (10.30am to 4.30pm), Saturdays (10am to 4pm) and Sundays by appointment only. For more information, visit www.
