Byron Bay Bridal Showcase: What a day to remember!


The morning of the showcase was a flurry of activity. The day was glorious and the venue, Ewingsdale Hall and it’s grounds, even more so. Pictures were hung, sweet treats packed, models primped and prepped, tables laid. By the time the crowd began trickling in, everything was a well-orchestrated vision of beauty and eye-catching splendour. In a clean, white, airy space, Teams Summer and Spring set up what can only be described as majestic and enchanting displays. Flowers popped with colour; invitations and place settings looked breathtakingly regal. And just beyond the doorway, beneath a wide marquee,  Teams Autumn and Winter provided a second round of pure styling delight. It was a time for discovery and idea generation.

Organiser, Jennifer Gifford, was a relaxed and friendly presence, while vendors like photographer, Shane Shepherd, and Mark Ferguson from Wil Valor, put faces to two examples of extraordinary talent and service. The Cake That Ate Paris was an unforgettable stand to behold, manned by delightful owner Bree. Woody’s Surf Car Hire provided two stunning VW Kombis, Makai and Pearl, to whet the appetites of all those looking for super cool alternative transport, and a rather brilliant  and efficient coffee stand from Grind Date Coffee provided the most aromatic ebony elixir that was both appreciated (particularly by our own resident caffine fiend, Em) and well received.

When the fashion parade began, crossing our legs was about all we could do to stop ourselves fidgeting from excitement. Four beautiful girls in Jennifer Gifford creations were escorted down the lawn aisle by four equally-dashing men. The combinations were appropriately hypnotising and set the bar for wedding day attire. Yet despite the amazing wealth of incredible talent on display, it would not have been the magnificent day it was had there not been such a strong essence of comradery. Everyone may as well have been the best of friends.

We believe that’s worth acknowledging and want to thank organiser Jennifer Gifford and partaking vendors for the role they played in propagating true harmony. It has been an honour to be a sponsor. We can’t wait for the next one.
