The Strathaven Ho­tel, just out­side the town, is hold­ing its Wed­ding Ex­hi­bi­tion on Fe­bru­ary 11. Staff will be on hand to talk you through what the ho­tel of­fers, and show you round its lovely in­te­rior and ma­ture gar­dens – great for the pho­to­graphs. Look­ing ahead to April, brides and grooms to be in the Big­gar area should head for Shield­hill Cas­tle on the 15th of the month. The cas­tle is host­ing a wed­ding show, which is a great chance to see the venue at its best.

The Beau­ti­ful Wed­dings Ex­hi­bi­tion is at Ed­in­burgh, on the week­end of Fe­bru­ary 10-11. There’s free cham­pagne for brides to be, who should find ev­ery­thing they need to plan your wed­ding, from flow­ers to favours.

Free­bies in­clude a dis­count voucher book and cham­pagne, and you can also en­joy cake and choco­late tast­ings while lis­ten­ing to live per­for­mances from string quar­tets and pipers. There’s an op­por­tu­nity to meet hair and make-up pro­fes­sion­als, and take home some trade tips and ideas of what’s the best look for you, plus take ad­vice from herbal­ists about how to feel good from the inside out.
