Simply Celebrate: Simply Bows and Chair Covers celebrate 3 years of fabulous event dressing!

We cannot believe that Simply Bows and Chair Covers is celebrating it's 3rd birthday.... so much has happened in these three years and so much is yet still to come we're sure! Lets take a little look back over this exciting three year journey......

In January 2009 Sarah Pittnedrigh, MD of Simply Bows and Chair Covers set up the business from her home in Durham after organising her brothers wedding and being incredibly disappointed with the level of quality and service given when arranging the Chair Covers. Sarah quickly realised that with her previous experience and skills combined with sourcing great quality fabrics and colour ranges and providing the utmost in reliability and professionalism she could indeed fill a gap in the market for brides who simply wanted more from their Chair Cover supplier.

Within the early months of trading we were thrilled to be asked to supply many of the premier wedding venues and given preferred supplier status in the North east of England.

Through continued growth and interest in the brand nationally Sarah decided to franchise the company as this was an ideal way to supply demand, maintaining quality and consistency as only individuals with vast wedding and event experience were considered in order to ensure only industry professionals joined the brand enhancing the company's experience and expertise further and breathing new life and ideas in to our exciting company. In November 2009 Simply Bows and Chair Covers became Simply Bows and Chair Covers Franchised Ltd. and the first franchisee joined the company; Lucinda Thompson, Sunderland and Teeside Area Director. Offices that followed were West Northumberland and Cumbria, South Northumberland and County Durham, North Northumberland, Newcastle, North Yorkshire, Harrogate, Lancashire.  We now have 10 offices stretching from Aberdeen to Devon with plans to open in London Mayfair within the next month.

Over the last three years we are honoured to have been nominated and shortlisted for some fabulous awards. Some we have been finalists for and some we have won, both regionally and nationally. It is a privalidge to be nominated for these awards as they are largely voted for by our wedding industry peers and our brides.

We are thrilled with our achievements over the past three years and have gained some amazing testimonials from our clients (which can be viewed on our website). Our website and blog are nationally renowned (our website came 2nd to McDonalds in the Franchise Marketing Awards) and attract visitors and therefore enquiries from all over the world. So after an exciting three years, who knows what the next three years will bring. All we can say is.... watch..!
