Hundreds of brides found their perfect matches at the first Bride: The Wedding Show at Ascot Racecourse (March 15-16)

More than 1,100 visitors married with a wide range of the finest wedding suppliers from dress experts to entertainers, caterers to cake-makers, make-up artists to florists and venues to photographers – in fact all the professionals who can help create a perfect wedding day. The crowds were entertained three times daily by what is acknowledged as the best wedding show catwalk presentation in the industry. Cheeky ‘grooms’ and beautiful ‘brides’ showed off a wide range of wedding day attire from local businesses and had the audience whooping with delight at the sensational choreographed routines.

George the Wedding Fairy offered free advice on wedding planning and pitfalls and magazines from the Bride portfolio were given away.

Brides were able to sign up for Bride’s free planning website, www.weddingsite.co.uk, which recommends local suppliers for every aspect of wedding buying and has easy tools to help with big day organising from budgeting to gift lists.

Mike Sherrard, managing director of the Bride portfolio of magazines, shows, fairs and digital media said: “This was the birth of a new sustainable addition to the Archant Bride portfolio and the enthusiasm of exhibitors, brides and their guests suggest we can watch this event grow from strength to strength over the coming years. It was a great family day out that was informative and entertaining and a terrific support for local businesses and brides.”

What they’re saying about Bride: The Wedding Show at Ascot Racecourse

 

Bride Mandy Pack: “The best wedding show I have been to and well worth visiting. I have met a lot of suppliers from across the county which is fantastic as I am just starting my planning and buying, and the catwalk show was incredible. We came for 10 minutes and stayed three hours. I even bought my wedding dress.”

 

Bride Tracey Smoothey with fiancé Stephen Snodding: “We got lots of inspiration. The exhibitors were very high quality and we looked especially at the suits from Stephen Bishop and the flowers. It is the best show we have been to.”

 

 

Darren Latimer, Innovents Entertainments: “Berkshire was in desperate need of a professional wedding show and this has been absolutely amazing.”

 

Claire Puttock, Belles Beauty: “An outstanding event.”

 

 

 

Graham Bird, The Remi Collection (rings): “The show is just what the area needs.

 

Lorraine Langridge, Brides Visited: “There is a great feel good factor to the show, we do a lot of wedding shows and this is by far the most entertaining.”
