The Bridal Gala Story


Bridal Gala Wairarapa Fundraising for KidsCan

-The Bridal Gala Story -

Suzanne Jones nee Truscott / Founder of Bridal Gala Wairarapa

Trying on bridal gowns at The Bridal Studio Palmerston North was a magical experience.

On the drive home I thought what a shame these beautiful gowns would only ever be worn and enjoyed once.  

Wouldn't it be fun to have an event to commemorate our special day and enjoy wearing our wedding gowns again.  An event that would also benefit a much needed charity.

I shared my idea with friends and family and with their help and enthusiasm Bridal Gala Wairarapa was created.

It would be great to have you be a part of this special evening for a very special New Zealand charity.

Suzanne Truscott came to us with a wonderful idea to host a wedding gala where brides and grooms can wear their special gowns and suits and re-live their special day once again.

Here at the hotel we are privileged to be involved in these special occasions, and have hosted many weddings since 1972 when the hotel first opened its doors to the public, so we were very honoured to be asked to host this wonderful event which can help many children and their families in their time of need.

We are very happy Suzanne has chosen Kids Can for her charity.

We wish her all the best with this event, and we look forward to holding this here at Copthorne Solway Park Hotel.



Thank You to these generous sponsors who help make this exciting, fun charity event possible.
