The National Wedding Show
Find a Wedding Supplier at the National Wedding Show
On Friday, Sam and Emily had a great day at the National Wedding Show. It is a fantastic event and you can literally plan your whole wedding on one day.
There are wedding venue stands, music, DJs, caterers, shoe, dress and tiara designers, wedding cars, wedding photographers, hair and make-up artists, (check out Emily having a make-over!) and honeymoons. We mean it, everything! Recently engaged Denise Van Outen was doing just that….We spotted her at one of the designer wedding dress stands!
We really enjoyed meeting some of the young, emerging designers as well as some of the more established ones. We met Charlotte from the beautiful award-winning boutique, ‘Ellie and Charlotte’ www.ellieandcharlotte.com - they make the most ravishing bespoke wedding dresses, and Ann-Marie D’Amato who makes timeless and chic custom-made gowns specialising in corsets, bride and bridesmaids dresses, www.damatobridal.co.uk as well as handmade veils, stockings and garters. Next stop, Mark Valentine, of Free Love Entertainments, www.freelove-ents.co.uk. We had a very funny chat to him – a great character as you can see by his attire and he gave us all the low down on what brides and grooms are after in terms of music.
There were many venue owners, including ones promoting amazing foreign destinations which is great if you are planning a wedding abroad. And despite the recession, more and more people are doing this.
We loved talking with Lisa Gilchrist who is the events co-ordinator at Dream Weddings in Spain – www.dreamweddingsinspain.com - the website is really worth checking out as they have a huge amount of venues, catering for every taste and budget.
We've lined up lots of great features and interviews with wedding suppliers we met at the National Wedding Show which will be appearing over the next few months.
