London Calling the Lakes!
So, we just got back from a fast paced but fabulous weekend at London Bridal Show. As usual, the dresses were amazing and we have so many new things to show you, but the train journey home got me thinking about a little memory I wanted to share with you . . .
Just before we opened Songbird, I remember meeting up with the girls for a cuppa. They were super excited about the boutique opening so I told them all about the kind of dresses we were going to stock and about how we met up with designers in London. At that, one of the girls let out a gasp "London, how amazing! I mean, travelling to the nations capital on buisness! You're living the dream Rach!" She seemed so proud.
I recall that memory whenever we travel to London and it still melts my heart a little. It was such a big deal for Lindsey and it's still a big deal for me. Being able to bring a slice of big city life back upto the Lake District is exactly what I wanted to achieve with Songbird and is one of the reasons I love my job so much.
From the start, the vision was to bring a totally different bridal style to Cumbria. I wanted our collection to be unique and fashion forward, offering the kinds of gowns that us northern girls swooned over in magazines but didn't have a hope in hells chance of getting our hands on locally. I wanted to offer my brides styles which broke away from tradition and allowed the brides personality to shine through, allowing her to feel like the most beautiful version of herself on her wedding day.
There's no better feeling than having a bride walk into the boutique, look around, take in the surroundings and say 'This is sooo me!' . . . and the biggest surprise of all, we regularly have brides travel from Newcastle, Manchester and wait for it . . . LONDON! who cant wait to join our growing Songbird Flock xx
