Archant’s Bride: The Wedding Show delivers an unforgettable weekend of wedding planning

Posted on

Returning to the Norfolk Showground for its eighth year, 'Bride: The Wedding Show' treated hundreds of couples to a weekend of entertainment, shopping and comprehensive wedding planning.

Sponsored by Pure Brides and Grooms, the event offered an array of entertainment on the main stage. Wedding singer, Lee Vann entertained the crowds before the choreographed catwalk show started - featuring designs from Pure Brides and Grooms, La Belle Angéle, Boutique of Dreams, Jarrold and Slaters – offering something for every member of the wedding party.

More than 150 local businesses joined together to provide inspiration and ideas to help couples plan their big day. Photographers, venues, stationers, florists, bridal boutiques, cake makers, transport providers, menswear suppliers and more turned out in force to showcase their products and services. Among them was a host of winners from the EDP Bride: The Wedding Awards 2017, all eager to meet couples and offer their expert advice.

Several of the best presented stands were singled out with trophies. The four winners were Samantha Powell Flowers, RLA Wedding Designs My Fleur and La Belle Angéle.

Other highlights for visitors included a pop-up shop hosted by Pure Brides and Grooms, complimentary copies of Norfolk & Suffolk Bride Magazine, and amazing opportunities to win prizes in the Golden Ticket Giveaway.

Bride-to-be Leanne Crow from Wymondham visited with her sister and fellow bride-to-be, Sophie. Leanne said “It’s been brilliant. I got my wedding rings from Alba Rose and my sister was given a quote for her wedding rings which was £800 cheaper than what she had budgeted”.

Diana Sims, Archant Bride Sales Director, said "What a fantastic weekend. I would like to thank all the exhibitors and visitors for their support. I would also like to say thank you to our amazing team that helped run the show – from the staff on front desk and on the Archant Bride stand, to those in the catwalk area and our security. It was a brilliant show.”
