Sorry, event cancelled: Isle of Wight Grand Bridal Tea
5th May £45.00 - £225
Announcement at 2pm on Monday 29th April 2019.
It is with regret and disappointment that we have to announce that the Grand Bridal Tea has been cancelled today due to us not reaching the minimum number for catering for the event, falling 10 people short of the required number of bookings that we needed. For those people that had booked the experience we are sorry to disappoint you at this short notice, but unfortunately we have found that the Bank holiday weekend was perhaps not the best weekend to host an event of this nature, when many people have alternative plans with their families.
Once again, sorry for any disappointment and inconvenience caused. We will be in touch by email with all people who purchased tickets and full refunds will be issued.
The Northwood House & Dornellie Bridal Studio teams
The Isle of Wight Grand Bridal Tea is the perfect opportunity for future brides-to-be to gather their bridesmaids and their closest friends and family who will be involved closely in their special day to enjoy a fabulous afternoon out at Northwood House to celebrate their forthcoming wedding.

Karen Robb of Dornellie Bridal Studio said,” I’m delighted to be working with the team at Northwood House and All About Catering to deliver this fantastic new bridal event at the venue. It will be perfect for brides and their close circle of girl friends, mum, aunties and grandma’s to attend for a great afternoon our with all the girls. The groom-to-be is welcome too of course, but it depends if he can put up with all the ladies for the afternoon…we do like to have a bit of giggle between us as you can imagine!
I’m excited to be exhibiting some amazing bridal outfits from my current collection of own design as well as some stunning new dress designs from my exclusive suppliers.The dresses will only be here for the following week and brides will be able to book to try them in my studio after the event before they disappear if they want to come for a fitting while I have them in stock. I will also be showcasing outfits for the bridesmaids, mother of the bride/groom and some designer menswear to ensure everyone gets some inspiration”.
