North West Fair

join brides up north in the frow for the national wedding show manchester!

11th October 2018 | Julia Braime


We’re so excited to return as the official blogger for The National Wedding Show at Manchester Central from Saturday 27th to Sunday 28th October 2018!

I’ll be on site at the event, tweeting, facebooking and instagramming like mad (from a front row seat at the designer catwalk no less) and trying to meet as many of you lovely brides to be as possible.

Joining me this autumn will be over 200 of the most trusted suppliers from Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and Liverpool. I always love it when the suppliers have gone that extra mile, be it in the visual styling of their stand, the experience that they are offering to their customers or their beautiful products. Having checked out the exhibitor line up for this event, it’s going to be a gorgeous one!


And no wedding show is complete without a bit of dress shopping, is it? We’ll be immersing ourselves in clouds of lace and tulle as we check out the Catwalk Show to see what our favourite bridal boutiques and designers have to offer for the season ahead.

The best boutiques in the North West will be on hand to help you find the best type and fit of dress for you and your whole wedding party. The Catwalk brings the latest looks for brides and bridesmaidsto life in a fabulous show that takes place four times a day at the National Wedding Show Manchester.  Watch out for dream dresses by Berketex, Ladybird, Oriental Pearl, Willow Bride, White Gallery, Diane Harbridge, Wedding Style Collective and The Confetti Box!

Whilst the bridal dresses are the obvious showstoppers, you’ll also see beautiful make-up looks by Lancôme, a variety of on-trend hairstyles from Anna Sorbie, shoes to fall in love with from Rainbow Club, Mother Of The Bride by Maria Morris and Nigel Raymont and even inspiration for bouquets and other accessories!


We wouldn’t forget the groom either, there’ll be some seriously swoon worthy looks on the catwalk from the likes of Slaters, Ben Sherman, Swarbricks Formal Hire, Youngs Hire and Moss Bros.
