Brides Up North Wedding Fairs

Diary Date: The etc Magazine Wedding Show

September 13th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

So, it may be a wrap on this year’s Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition (click here for details of our Wedding Exclusives in Yorkshire) but North East brides have still got lots of wedding inspiration right at their fingertips with a jam packed schedule of wedding fairs and events across the region this Autumn.  I’ll be letting you know about the very best here on these pages.

.
Taking place on Sunday September 30th 2012, in the magnificent surroundings of the five-star Rockliffe Hall, just outside of Darlington, the etc Wedding Show will host 30 exhibitors representing the best of the region’s wedding industry.

etc editor Georga Spottiswood says: You’re engaged. You may have even set the date. It’s the most wonderful and exciting time of your life. But when the initial buzz has died down and you start to plan the rest of your big day, it can be a bit of nightmare knowing where to start.

.

Having just been a bridesmaid for etc’s Cara Houchen, I understand the stress that brides-to-be can be under. From choosing the wedding stationery to marrying the colour scheme to the table centrepieces and bouquets, it can be a daunting experience.  That’s why we’ve chosen the best the wedding industry has to offer here in the North East and our array of exhibitors will be there to help brides-to-be make their big day go off with a bang.

W Salon and Eve Beauty will be there to offer wedding hair and beauty ideas, while Durham-based Ava Rose Hamilton can help you find the dress of your dreams. 

.

But it is not just about the brides – prospective grooms can make sure they’re looking dapper on the day with formal wear and suit hire experts Affleck & Moffatt  and Bakers.

.
Stan Seaton Photography and Camera A will show you how they can capture the magic of your big day, while Prime Entertainment and Snaparazzi Photobooths can provide some quality entertainment for your guests. 
Flowers by Nattrass will be there to guide brides and grooms through bouquets and buttonholes, while Berry Boutique will be showcasing a beautiful range of bridal bling.

.
And if you want a honeymoon to remember, let the experts at Travel Bureau help you pick a first-class destination.

etc publisher Linda Burnside says: Last year was our first ever wedding event and we really did pull out all the stops to make it a top-class day, but we’re hoping this year will be even bigger and better.  The etc Wedding Show will take place from 12 to 4pm. Guests will be greeted with a goodie bag and a glass of champagne, after which they can see what’s on offer and talk to the exhibitors at their leisure. There will also be a glamorous bridal fashion show, with entertainment from wedding swing singer Anthony Stringer.

.
For soon-to-be brides and grooms, and their families, this is one event that is not be missed – even if we do say so ourselves!
