Tuesday 9th February, saw 6 small businesses from Portishead rally together to organise a catalogue quality photoshoot. Each of the businesses involved focus certain aspects of their business on the wedding industry and provided their time and resources to be a part of this exciting shoot.
Now is the time when most bridal couples will be choosing their suppliers for their upcoming Spring and Summer weddings, so this group of Portishead business owners thought it would be a good idea to showcase their products and services. Each owner took a day out of their busy schedules to do what they do best. The aim was to involve only local businesses and show the talent and high standard of service that Portishead has to offer its bridal community. The resulting images will be used to demonstrate these high standards.
The businesses in question are
Abigail from The Photogra4; Zoe from House of Zozo; Joanne from Jay Gees Beauty; Maxx from Lauras Hair Studio; Joanna from Katherine Jo Designs; Sara from The Royal Inn Portishead

It was an extremely long and tiring day, (it started at 11am and ended at 10pm), but with the energy, sense of humour and determination shared by each business owner involved, the comraderie among them has led to a sense of community and knowing that they are not alone in the tough reality of running a small business in todays demanding times. They all agreed that networking like this will also help put Portishead on the Wedding Map.
