Wow, I can not believe we are about to open the shutters for 2022
A big questions...are we at the end of the pandemic? Who knows. What I do know is that we have had an amazing two years through the pandemic, the business has diversified and without a doubt become more resilient and prosperous than I could have imagined.
A massive thank you to everyone that spent time and money with us over the last two years; whilst many were stuck at home, unable to socialise, businesses were crumbling, we were able to be out meeting people, driving the business forward and taking new opportunities.
So where are we now?
We have a summer full of bookings, we are not only running our own wedding/events bars but we are managing some for venues. We have been very lucky to be asked to work with some fantastic brands this year...it really does look like a summer of celebration.
Last year we continued to spend a great deal of time with our market bottle shop, now I have the challenge of managing our busy market schedule with our even busier bar booking dates. I love the markets, I love working with the other traders and meeting new customers. It will never be a complete stop on the market, but we are for now scaling back for this summer season.
Last May we took the covers off and returned to bar service, whilst the initial weddings were under strict guidelines...guests must be seated, table service only, we still had the best time. Those weddings will always be memorable to us for the restrictions but nonetheless those days were filled with joy and beautiful couples! Good on them for going ahead and focussing on what really mattered.
Through the hard work of all of us we managed to achieve excellent feedback and reviews for our service last year. This feedback led to us winning an award. I was super proud of the team!! We were named 'runner up' in the Best of Welsh Weddings Specialist Supplier. Again I thank my team for their huge efforts and my couples, family and friends for taking the time to provide the feedback and submit them to the awarding body.
So, we kick off this weekend not with a wedding but a 25th wedding anniversary celebration with our new Terrace Bar - Have you seen it? Final plans are underway to include new team members, new systems and a few new premium products to our bar service.
I am super excited for our weddings and events this year, bring on the Summer of 2022!
