Bride: The Wed­ding Show, in as­so­ci­a­tion with the East­ern Daily Press and spon­sored by Bul­lens Jewellers, is back for its 11th year to lend an ex­pert help­ing hand to en­gaged cou­ples.

Whether this is the first step of start­ing your wed­ding plan­ning jour­ney or you’re search­ing for the fin­ish­ing touches, around 150 ex­hibitors from across Nor­folk and Suf­folk will be there to dis­cuss their prod­ucts and ser­vices and of­fer ad­vice to make your dream wed­ding a re­al­ity.

Visi­tors will be wel­comed by the Kavolini String Quar­tet and the first 100 brides through the doors on each day re­ceive goody bags con­tain­ing treats from ex­hibitors. Bul­lens Jewellers, 2020 spon­sors of the big­gest two-day wed­ding show in the re­gion, will show­case sparkling col­lec­tions of wed­ding bands and wed­ding day jew­ellery.

Michele Whit­tam of Bul­lens, says: “We are very proud to put our name for­ward to such an ex­cit­ing and pro­fes­sional show, which promises to de­liver ex­pert ad­vice, stun­ning ideas and un­lim­ited in­spi­ra­tion – it is a real hon­our to be the 2020 spon­sors.

“We have ex­hib­ited at many lo­cal wed­ding events over the past 20 years, how­ever, the Archant Bride show is by far the big­gest and brings so many of the best lo­cal wed­ding sup­pli­ers to­gether for two days.”

Cou­ples at­tend­ing can get a head start on wed­ding plans by talking to the cream of wed­ding pro­fes­sion­als face to face, all un­der one roof. Dur­ing the two-day event, many sup­pli­ers of­fer sav­ings, prizes and ex­clu­sive show pro­mo­tions on their prod­ucts and ser­vices.

Re­turn­ing ex­hibitor Richard Jarmy, of Richard Jarmy

Pho­tog­ra­phy, said: “The show is won­der­ful. I have found more cou­ples are look­ing for fun, nat­u­ral pho­tog­ra­phy, which cap­tures their per­son­al­ity – long gone are the posed pho­to­graphs. My top tip for cou­ples look­ing for their pho­tog­ra­pher dur­ing the week­end is to make sure you like their work and build a strong rap­port with them, so you feel re­laxed with them on your big day.”

Make-up artist Stephanie Alexan­dra said: “The 2019 show was my first time at the event and I am back for 2020. This show is the per­fect place for all brides and grooms to start wed­ding plan­ning.”

The high­light for many visi­tors is the sen­sa­tional chore­ographed cat­walk, which takes place four times daily: at 11am, 12.15pm, 1.30pm and 2.45pm.

Be­tween cat­walk shows and ex­plor­ing the ex­hibitors, guests can en­joy a glass of fizz in the cen­tral cham­pagne bar or in­dulge them­selves in the ban­quet­ing area by Brast­eds ca­ter­ing, dec­o­rated by The Ban­quet­ing Hire Ser­vice.

This year, Bride: The Wed­ding Show hosts a best stand com­pe­ti­tion – so keep a look out and vote for your favourite.
