Adam Davies – The Durban Grill

Many thanks to Archant Bride for a fantastic first show of the year. It was our first time at the Showground and the set up was second to none. There were so many original and unique companies offering something different for the brides and grooms and we felt honoured to be a part of that.

Rob Jackson & Victoria Cook – Dazed Photography

We had a fantastic weekend chatting to loads of engaged couples and took some on-the-day bookings, which is great. We are looking forward to following up our leads this week. Thanks to the Archant Bride team for a smashing show.

Karen Walpole – Walpole & Howson

I had taken two deposits by midday on Saturday and had three golden tickets produced – two at the show and one on Sunday evening via email. I had an absolute blast and was constantly talking to people on my stand. The other exhibitors around me were fabulous and we all really clicked, so this made it a real fun couple of days. Bring on next year.

Bob Lloyd - Toastmaster Bob

Another great Bride: The Wedding Show. Pleased to get some bookings and lots of enquires. In my role as toastmaster, attention to detail is key, and thanks go to all the Archant Bride team, whose attention to detail matches my own. Many thanks.

Kevin Kitteridge & Diane Harper – Silverline Limousines

Thank you to the Archant Bride team for putting on a magnificent two-day wedding show at the Norfolk Showground. The crème de le crème of wedding suppliers in the region showcased and their stands looked fantastic. The couples planning their weddings were indeed spoilt and I am sure, were impressed. For team Silverline, it was a fantastic couple of days. The diary was constantly being assessed and bookings added. We were proud to be involved in this enjoyable and spectacular event.


Dan Sunderland – Dan Sunderland Photography

I love exhibiting at the EDP wedding show at the Norfolk Showgound; it is always well organised, well advertised and busy, and this weekend was no exception. I received bookings on both days and had a great time chatting to so many couples about being part of their special day. Thank You.

Bradley Armstrong – Marry in Norfolk

Another busy wedding show, exceptionally organised by the Archant Bride team. We had a great weekend chatting and giving advice to couples. Looking forward to the next wedding show already.

Anita & Rob Burton – Norfolk Spa & Leisure

There is really no other wedding show like it. The two-day show at the Showground really gives brides and their families a real opportunity to see what is on offer for any type of wedding and budget. We had a lovely time meeting with lots of brides and will definitely be with you again next year.

Caroline – The Ceremony People

Our first wedding fair – and what a fab way to start. Huge thanks to the Archant Bride team for making it such a great experience. It was a joy to meet so many lovely people, from couples looking for the personal touch for their ceremony to fellow professionals in the wedding world. Exhausting, but fun - we'll be back next year.

Barry Gravenell – CB Wedding Videos

Once again, the Archant Bride team has put on an absolutely amazing show. The number of brides and grooms through the doors over the weekend was unbelievable and we cannot thank the EDP team enough for all their hard work in putting on another superbly planned and managed show.  Already looking forward to next year.

Vanessa & Paul Kisby – Sweeties

This was our first time exhibiting at the two-day Bride: The Wedding Show. Wow, it was such a successful weekend for us and it was lovely to meet lots of lovely people: the Archant Bride team, Diana, Fiona, Judy and Steve were just amazing. The running of the show was so smooth even with the setting up and taking down, nothing was too much trouble. The security team were also amazing as always; one word for this weekend… amazing. We can’t wait for next year to do it all again.


David Robinson - The Banqueting Hire Service

Being involved in the set-up of the show, as well as exhibiting, is always a fantastic experience for us. This one was the best to date. We had a great time with lots of enquiries, many thanks to the EDP Weddings team.

Helen Gooch – Dunston Hall

Another fantastic show organised by the team at Archant Bride. We had a great, steady flow of lovely engaged couples throughout the day on both days, whom we gained some really good enquiries from for Dunston Hall.  The show was organised fantastically, as always, and it was such a smooth process from start to finish as an exhibitor – thank you.

Tyrone Harold – T&K Banqueting

A huge thank you to Archant Bride for such a fantastic wedding show held this weekend at the Norfolk Showground. Superbly organised and very well attended by many excited wedding couples looking for the right options for them. Exciting times and a must for companies and customers alike.

Anna Key – Southwood Hall

What an inspiring weekend. Seeing so many excited faces puts a spring in our step for the season ahead and reignites our passion for what we do. An eclectic mix of wedding professionals brought together and fantastically hosted by the Archant Bride team. A show not to be missed; looking forward to 2018 already.

Julie Gibson – Abacus Hotels

Another fantastic show organised by Diana and her team.  An excellent venue and it was great to see so many suppliers under one roof with a number of good quality leads coming through the door.

Rebecca Adams – RLA Wedding Designs

Thank you Archant Bride for such an amazing, well organised show. I have never been involved in such a big show before and I cannot wait to exhibit again next year. RLA Wedding Designs was so thrilled to be announced the winner of Best 2m x 2m Stand and with orders taken on the day and still coming in after, I would highly recommend to any company looking to exhibit. A huge well done and well earned success to all involved.


Louise Flynn – Lou Lou Loves Vintage Hire

Wow, wow, wow. Yet again, the Archant Bride team have pulled off another great show. As usual, there were so many couples to see, friendly exhibitors and an amazing catwalk show, but what makes it so special is the care and attention to detail that the Bride team deliver to make it a success. See you in 2018.

Anna Hare – Pure Brides & Grooms (Show sponsor)

What a great show again this year; we loved every second and so did all our lovely brides who tried on and fell in love with their dream dress in our ‘Pure on Tour’ pop-up shop. See you again next year.

Nigel Wilkin – Toastmaster Nigel

What a fab show; everybody was really buzzing. I was amazed at how many brides-to-be were quoting 2019 weddings.

Shelley – Fun 4 Guests

As new exhibitors to the show, we were delighted with the responses and feedback we had from brides-to-be and their families. Thanks Archant Bride for creating such a buzz around the show and we look forward to exhibiting with you again. 

Jane Scrivens – Lenwade House a Country Hotel

A great two-day show, fantastic atmosphere, met lots of potential couples during the two days, so phones are ringing non-stop. We are making appointments. Well done to the Archant team. We are looking forward to the show at Dunston Hall later this year.

Simon Watson – Simon Watson Photography

Really had a great weekend at the two-day EDP Bride wedding show. It was great to see so many couples and hear all their plans for their big days. Looking forward to catching up with you soon. Many thanks to the team for such a good weekend. See you next year.

This is our second EDP Bride wedding show and we couldn’t have asked for a better show. The team at EDP, the brides and grooms, and all the other exhibitors make it amazing. We had a great weekend and will be booking again for next year. We can’t wait to make our bride and grooms’ special day even more special.

Gordon Given – Vintage Car and Camper Hire

Wow. What an amazing show this was. A massive thank you to the Archant Bride team for organising such a fantastic wedding show. We met some lovely couples and the phone and emails have not stopped. Thank you and see you very soon at Dunston Hall.

Steven Greensmith – Horizon Cakes

We’ve had a fantastic two days at the EDP Bride wedding show; lots of lovely brides to chat with and share ideas for their perfect wedding cake. We are so pleased to have been there again after three years of exhibiting at the show; we will certainly be looking to book again next year.

Malcolm Powles – Victoria Marquees/ Decorate My Venue

Wow, what a show. The show for professional suppliers within the wedding industry to showcase their products and services. Two days of steady, quality potential customers and all within a stunning location with an incredible atmosphere. As usual, the Archant Bride staff and security were exemplary. Here is to the next show.


Mike Fletcher – La Belle Angéle Bridal Boutique

We had the best show ever. The brides loved our dresses and we booked lots of appointments. It was great to win the Best Stand in our category. Many thanks to all the Archant team – you pulled it off again and the impromptu birthday cake was especially lovely – thanks Diana.

Margaret Sims – Hats Francise

Thanks to the team for their constant attentiveness; it is enjoyed by all exhibitors. Well done for a fantastic show. No sign of Brexit bringing the footfall down, so great start to 2017.

Simon Cheeseman – Slaters Norwich

It was great to meet so many couples over the weekend. We would like to wish you all the best with your wedding planning. We hope to see the groom and his groomsmen looking dapper at Slaters Menswear soon.

Fantastic show with a great atmosphere and best of all, we met lots of lovely brides-to-be. Looking forward to seeing you all in store very soon. 

Victoria Taylor – Nelson’s Cottage Bakery

To all the Archant Bride team – a massive thank you from Nelson's Cottage Bakery for an amazing weekend. I have had numerous enquiries since the show which is totally fab. I also met some lovely fellow suppliers whom I know I will keep in touch with. The support from everyone at the show for a first time exhibitor was really reassuring and motivating. I love working with the Archant team and their professional approach to fairs is the best in this area. I can't wait to work with the team again. Thank you.

Rebecca Spilling – Lickety Ice

We had a fantastic weekend at our first ever wedding show. It was really well organised and we loved chatting to all the brides- and grooms-to-be about how to incorporate our Lickety Ices into their special day. Thanks to everyone that came to see us – we can’t wait to get the ice lolly season started.
