I’m so excited to return as the Official Blogger for The National Wedding Show at Event City Manchester from Saturday 9th to Sunday 10th March!
I’ll be on site at the event 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 spring will be over 150 of the most trusted suppliers from Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire, Yorkshire and Merseyside. 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!
Shall we meet some of them?
Bride by Swarbricks
Based in Manchester, Bride by Swarbricks has over 20 years experience in the bridal industry so you know you can rely on their expertise, honesty and guidance to ensure you achieve the perfect look for your day. They will be bringing a selection of bridal gowns for you to try on without booking appointments in advance. Their collections include Pronovias, Sophia Tolli , Allure Bridals, Randy Fenoli, Sincerity, stocking sizes from 6 to 26.
TUI provide the ultimate destination wedding and honeymoon services, to help you create a celebration that’s as unique as you are. The National Wedding Show have teamed up with the travel experts to bring you the TUI Wedding Travel Lounge where you can book appointments with their specialists and discuss how to make your dreams a reality!
If you book tickets in advance tick the box requesting more information about booking an appointment on the day. There will also be limited slots available on the day.
Shropshire Petals are expert petal confetti growers! Their top notch petals are biodegradable, dye-free and environmentally friendly which means guilt-free insta-worthy wedding photos for you. They offer a wide range of colours which you can see at the show and even test out their confetti pops. They even offer a pick & mix option so you can make a unique blend of confetti to match your colour scheme.
Scott & Lees Photography
The National Wedding Show hosts an array of the best wedding photographers so you can find one that fits with you and your partner’s style. Scott and Lees Photographer are a photography duo that specialise in unobtrusive documentary style photography capturing the moments as they happen rather than orchestrating the day. Meet with the various photographers at the show to view their portfolio and discuss any ideas you may have.
With many more suppliers covering everything from catering and mobile bar hire to hen dos and transport, it’s the ultimate weekend of wedding planning you can enjoy with friends and family. You can take a look at other suppliers joining them here.
Don’t forget, it isn’t just about the planning… 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 inspiration doesn’t end there either… I’ll be trying out my wedding crafting skills in the Inspiration Lab, getting my vintage vibe on in the Eclectic Boutique, shopping for every last detail in the Confetti Wedding Emporium, admiring the pretty paper in the Stationery Styles gallery and trying my very hardest not to eat the displays in the Inspired Bakes Gallery!
After that, I’ll most probably need some refreshment, preferably of the bubbly kind. I’ll be heading to The Champagne Bar, situated right in the heart of the show and beautifully styled too.
All in all, the perfect day… possibly even better than the wedding?! We’ll let you be the judge of that!
I can’t wait to see you there!
