As a journalist, I was asked to write all about our wedding plans in the run-up to our big day. It was writing these columns that gave me the seed of an idea to launch this blog.

    Hi there,

    Please forgive the random email but we currently follow you on twitter and I wanted to get in touch regarding a new TV show I’m working on called ‘Bridesmaids’.

    We’re currently looking for brides to take part in this great new series, and there is also a free honeymoon up for grabs.

    If at all possible, please could the wording at the bottom of the email be put up on your Twitter or Facebook pages please?

    I know it’s an ask but it would be greatly appreciated. Also as there is a honeymoon on offer I truly think this will be of great interest to a lot of people.

    Anyway thank you very much for your time.

    All the very best.



    @bridesmaidshow Brides getting hitched in 2014 wanted for a brand new TV show. Free honeymoon up for grabs!



    Are you getting married between February and June 2014?

    Are you a super excited bride-to-be with several equally excitable bridesmaids putting the finishing touches to your wedding proceedings?
    Are your bridesmaids frantically planning your hen night? Arranging practice make up sessions? Organising last minute spa sessions and outfit changes?
    Would you like a free weekend of bonding for you and your bridesmaids before your big day?
    Also the chance to go on a dream honeymoon?

    Well we want to hear from you!

    Fresh One Productions are making an exciting new show all about brides and their lovely bridesmaids – a show that looks at friendship, the girly dynamics that surround this very important time and all the fun (and occasionally frustration!) that surround the lead up to the big day!

    We’re looking for a bride-to-be to take part and along with their bridesmaids we’ll treat you to a fun bonding weekend.

    If you are a bride-to-be and this sounds like fun to you then please get in touch, tell us a little bit about yourself and your beloved bridesmaids and we’ll get back to you:

    Email –

    Please specify which city you live in, and the date of your wedding.

    By contacting us you are not obliged to take part in any filming.

  2. Hi there,

    As you know wedding season is very much upon us and already brides and grooms are looking to plan their 2017/18 weddings.

Set in a gorgeous and scenic location you’re sure to see why we’re one of the most popular venues in the New Forest
