Why a Virtual Open Day?

Due to current event restrictions (thanks, COVID-19!), we’ve decided a virtual-style event is the best and safest option for this year’s Winter Open Day. We know we have an obligation to play our part in containing the spread, so that we can get restrictions lifted ASAP and start celebrating beautiful weddings again.

With this in mind, we also know that many of you guys are using this time to plan your wedding from home. Our virtual Winter Open Day is designed to help you kick-start your wedding planning, soak up some amazing wedding inspiration, and explore the best wedding venues on the Tweed Coast.

Plus, let’s be honest – wedding planning from the comfort of your couch? Sign us up!

What to Expect From Our Virtual Winter Open Day

Our Virtual Winter Open Day will be taking place between 9am – 3pm on Sunday, July 26th.

We are currently in the process of producing a film that will go live on the day, giving you a complete walk-through of each participating venue. You’ll be able to watch and observe from home as we take you on an interactive journey throughout each venue – then, we’ll open up for a live Q&A on our Instagram stories where you can have all of your questions answered by our venue managers. Each venue will also be offering limited face-to-face appointments along with Facetime and Zoom meetings, so book in quick to snap one up! 

You’ll also have the opportunity to “meet and greet” some of our epic local wedding suppliers too, who will be jumping on board for live Q&A sessions throughout the day.
