Bride: The Wedding Show at Tatton Park in Cheshire, 2015

Hundreds of brides and the region’s finest wedding businesses felt the love at Bride: The Wedding Show at Tatton Park in Cheshire.

Visitors and exhibitors alike praised the show for its organisation, variety of events, choice of quality stands and facilities. The all-singing, all-dancing catwalk show with its gorgeous gowns, beautiful girls, and cheeky male models who had the audience whooping and cheering, was proclaimed the best ever.

The catwalk, Harvey Nichols champagne bar, inspiration theatre, restaurant in association with Rupert Frazer Worden of the Fine Dining Company and performance stage with an array of wedding entertainers were packed with brides-to-be, their families and friends. Talks over the weekend included advice on planning a luxury honeymoon; organising a civil ceremony; hitting the ground running with wedding planning and making a wedding breakfast memorable.

On the catwalk leading North West bridal guestwear and groomswear stockists Maria Modes Bridal Wear, 7th Heaven Bridal, Agape Bridal, Cheshire Bridal Wear, Slaters Menswear and Groom Hire, Groom Hire, Young’s Hire, Nigel Rayment, Knutsford Wedding Gallery, K.M. Lowry, and John Lewis, showed off their latest collections.

Tom Lormor who runs North West-based events and artists' management company six15events, with Daniel Smith, exhibited at the show for the first time and had a fantastic weekend entertaining the crowds and booking weddings. “We have had an incredible reception from the crowds, with loads of inquiries and it has been great to meet so many other high-quality wedding businesses. One bride-to-be told us we had made her weekend.”

Teresa Cunningham of Teresa C Photography who was at the show for the second time said: “This really is the elite show for the North West, it is thanks to this Tatton wedding show and the other smaller fairs that Archant Bride organises throughout the year that my business has rocketed.”

Dan Morgan of Owen House Wedding Barn in Mobberley, Cheshire, said: “We are a new venue and the show has been fantastic for raising awareness” and show regular Sean Rayment who runs the Manchester Nigel Rayment formalwear and millinery boutique for his family’s international brand was delighted with the interest generated by his stand and catwalk scene.

Among the happy brides who were planning their perfect day at the show were sisters Jess and Georgia Corbett of Malpas, Cheshire, who visited with their mum and Georgia’s’ future mother-in-law. The sisters, who are at different stages of their planning – Georgia gets married in August, and Jess in June, 2016 – said the show was the best they had been to. Jess said: “It’s been a wonderful day. I have bought all my jewellery today and the catwalk was amazing – it wasn’t just a fashion show it was sheer entertainment.”

Emma Gittins, who gets married in 2017 and her cousin Chelsea Robinson who marries this May in a marquee at her home in Frodsham, Cheshire, picked up lots of ideas too, and fellow bride-to-be Laura Oliver from West Didsbury who was visiting with her mother said: “I have come away with lots of ideas and it has been great fun, the catwalk was really engaging and there is great mix of quality exhibitors covering all aspects of wedding planning.”

The 2016 Bride: The Wedding Show is at Tatton Park, Knutsford, Cheshire, WA16 6QN, on February 6 and 7, from 10am to 5pm. See www.theweddingshow.co.uk
