MANS­FIELD Wed­ding Fair is be­ing touted as the lo­ca­tion to plan a High Coun­try wed­ding of your dreams.

Mans­field Shire Coun­cil has part­nered with Mans­field Party Hire to host the wed­ding fair in the cen­tre of town on Satur­day, Septem­ber 9 from 2pm to 6pm.

There will be over 30 local ven­dors show­cas­ing the best Mans­field and dis­trict has to of­fer.

“This event was last held back in 2015 and achieved some amaz­ing re­sults for our local busi­nesses,” Mans­field Shire mayor Paul Volk­er­ing said.

“Over 50 wed­dings were booked as a di­rect re­sult of hold­ing the Mans­field Wed­ding Fair which is a won­der­ful out­come for our town.”

“With 75 per cent of the wed­dings booked by non-lo­cals at an av­er­age cost of $30,000, wed­dings are big busi­ness that pro­vide huge eco­nomic ben­e­fit to our town,” said Mans­field Party Hire di­rec­tor Kim Peter­son.

“With the trend to­wards rus­tic, ro­man­tic themed wed­dings, Mans­field and dis­trict pro­vides the per­fect set­ting that at­tracts prospec­tive cou­ples to have their wed­ding here.

“By hold­ing a wed­ding fair, we are just try­ing to make it eas­ier to cap­ture that mar­ket.”

Cr Volk­er­ing said it’s en­cour­ag­ing to see local busi­nesses col­lab­o­rat­ing to­gether to mo­ti­vate and in­spire a vi­brant busi­ness econ­omy.

The Mans­field Wed­ding Fair isn’t just for those get­ting mar­ried.

There is in­spi­ra­tion for any party no mat­ter how big or small, for­mal or in­for­mal.

Ev­ery­thing is cov­ered un­der one mar­quee roof.
