Bride: The Wedding Show at Tatton Park celebrates crystal anniversary

07 Feb 2017

Celebrating its 15th year, Bride: The Wedding Show at Tatton Park in Cheshire delivered an extra special weekend of wedding planning

The majestic Tatton Park in Knutsford, Cheshire provided a spectacular backdrop for the 15th edition of Bride: The Wedding Show at Tatton Park.

Brides- and grooms-to-be, accompanied by their friends and families – more than 5,000 visitors in total – were treated to a stunning showcase of wedding ideas and inspiration during the well-established two-day event. The show even welcomed Coronation Street star Tina O'Brien, who visited to plan her own wedding to fiancé, Adam Crofts.

From dresses, stationery and venues to cakes, transport and photographers, there was something for everyone at the show, which hosted more than 150 local wedding businesses.

Harnessing the luxury and splendour of its venue, the show presented a selection of stunning stands, fully dressed tipi from Tipi Unique and lavish marquee area from Mahood Marquees.

Tony Fanning, owner of Tony Fanning Photography, said: “As a first time exhibitor I was expecting great things, but I was taken aback by the sheer number of visitors and quality bookings I received. The show was well organised, looked fantastic and I look forward to returning next year.”

Echoing these sentiments, Karen Thorp-Cleaver, director of Tipi Unique, said: “We were blown away by the volume of people visiting the show. Couples were definitely keen to chat and book. We were overwhelmed by the passion, love and excitement that couples felt for our tipi at the show. A really fun, positive and worthwhile experience. We couldn’t ask for more.” 

Couples enjoyed a jam-packed entertainment schedule from a variety of musical performers on the band stage, as well as the spectacular choreographed catwalk show – considered the best in the business. Held at four times on each day of the show, the catwalk featured bridal gowns, bridesmaids’ dresses and menswear from Knutsford Wedding Gallery, Maria Modes, J & J Designs, Slaters, Cheshire Bridal Wear and 7th Heaven Bridal.

And the excitement didn’t stop there. Visitors were also invited to enter a multitude of amazing competitions from the show’s exhibitors, take advantage of show-exclusive offers and peruse complimentary copies of Cheshire Bride magazine. A dining area by Fine Dining Company and stylish champagne space from The Prosecco Pot offered the perfect environment to rest and relax.

Jenny Appleton, a bride-to-be who is getting married in Liverpool in March 2018, said: “I came to the show to get ideas. It was great; really well organised. The catwalk was brilliant. I actually tried on a dress for the first time, so I’ve got even more of an idea about styles now.”

As much as I enjoyed the day. I was sad to see that there was no plus sized representation.
