One word for the EDP Archant Bride wedding show is ‘wow’. We had the most fantastic show ever; it was such a successful weekend for us and we are going to be very busy in 2019/2020 with all our weddings. Thank you to Brasted’s for putting on such a wonderful service in the food and beverages area, lovely Diana and Steve for putting on such a fantastic professional wedding show, and all the Archant Bride team were absolutely amazing. The security team were so helpful and had us packed up in no time at all as we had to get to a big event to supply our sweets in the evening. Here's to the big one next year.

The Wonky Donkey:

Thank you to the team.

This was my first year exhibiting at the largest wedding show in East Anglia - and it certainly won’t be my last… I loved it.

It was also great to meet and chat to so many fantastic suppliers too.

We had a great steady flow of excited couples throughout both days.

Silverline Limousines

OK, on runway, this was the biggest wedding show of the year
And the suppliers set up full of cheer
And for this show the wedding couples were eager to appear
It was a fab show from start to finish
And when the crowds did finally diminish
Team Silverline reflected on a fabulous weekend
Of bookings and contracts this week to send
Well done to Di and the wedding team
For taking the show to a new extreme.
