The Georgian town of Holt welcomes ‘The Norfolk Bride’
The Georgian town of Holt welcomes ‘The Norfolk Bride’ which opened its doors for the first time this month, despite uncertainty and fierce competition on the High Street.
This exciting new venture will specialise in bespoke bridal wear and accessories which contrasts sharply with internet and larger chain stores with the majority offering synthetic mass produced bridal wear.
Customer service and experience is at the heart of the business at ‘The Norfolk Bride’ which is situated in the charming courtyard setting of Lees Yard. Kim Butcher justifies choosing to open her new venture in a relatively concealed location, despite being just a few steps from the town centre, “My overheads are as lean as possible which will enable me to offer the highest quality, handmade designer gowns at very affordable prices. Our brides can find styles ranging from clean cut designer looks through to floaty boho gowns. All of which are created using the finest silks, hand-beaded Italian and French laces, the design and quality which you expect to find from high end designers in London.”
One of Kim Butcher’s priorities was to choose a British designer and she is delighted to be working exclusively with Sarah Bussey of Ivory & Co. “I wanted to work with a business which not only delivers an exceptional level of service, but more importantly to provide the flexibility and very finest choice for my brides. This includes a full bespoke service, meaning brides can be in complete control over the style of gown they wish to emulate.”
Holt is renown for its individual yards which encourage a sense of discovery, so Kim believes it was the perfect place to situate her new venture. “The Yards of Holt offer such an eclectic mix of high-quality retailers where everything from Galleries to Groceries can be found. ‘The Norfolk Bride’ fits so well into Lees Yard and complements the other destination businesses which provide an exclusive, intimate yet relaxed environment.
One of the first outside ventures for ‘The Norfolk Bride’ will be to exhibit at Norfolk’s Creative Wedding Fair at Voewood, High Kelling, on Sunday 10th February.
