Happy Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone!

It’s been a while since our last blog entry and much has happened during that time including two fantastic shows at York Racecourse and Elland Road!

Last month, we were delighted to receive the regional prize for best wedding fayre organiser at The English Wedding Awards for a second year running as well as scooping the accolade for the whole of North of England.

As a way of saying thank you throughout Christmas we are offering all brides-to-be the chance to attend our big York Racecourse show on Sunday 18th March for a special cut-price fee of just 50p per ticket just click here to pre-book.

Rest assured though that we won’t be taking our foot of the gas as we looking to push our shows and standards even further in the next 12 months.

We have lots of exciting shows coming up in  2018 and places are filling up fast so please get in touch as soon as possible if you would like to exhibit at any of planned events.

A full list of our 2018 wedding fayre dates can be found by clicking here including our most recent addition which I’m delighted to be able to exclusively reveal will take place at Best Western Cedar Court Hotel Bradford on Sunday 30th September.

Other shows may also be added to the calendar in the near future and we are super excited to tell you about the launch of our new website which is scheduled to go live at the turn of the year.

In the meantime, on behalf of The UK Wedding Event, I just want to thank everyone who has exhibited at or attended at any of our wedding fayres in 2017, and wish you all the best for 2018.

Season’s greetings

The UK Wedding Event | The Centenary Pavilion @ Leeds United’s Elland Road | Sunday 12th November

The UK Wedding Event is back in Leeds on Sunday 12th November 2017 for another wedding fayre to remember.
Over 90 exhibitors will be on hand on the day at The Centenary Pavilion at Elland Road to help you plan your own wedding day.
Everything you could possibly wish for and more can be found at our event which also features live music, food and two catwalk shows.

Oh What a Year!

So it’s time to say goodbye to 2016 and hello to 2017!

I think it’s fair to say it has been quite a year for us with record breaking attendances at our shows and more and more venues approaching us to host their wedding fayres.

November was the icing on the cake though after coming down from the high that was a wonderful show at the Centenary Pavilion at Leeds United’s Elland Road, we then scooped a national award a day later as wedding fayre organisers of the year for the Yorkshire region.
award-1 Oh What a Year!

It’s amazing to think how far we have progressed in such a relatively short space of time.

Of course none of this would have been possible without our fantastic wedding suppliers and brides and grooms who keep coming through the door in their droves.

Both Emma and myself would like to thank each and every one of you personally for your support and wish you all the best for the year ahead.

We have a number of dates already lined-up so make sure you get your tickets and stands reserved today!

Heading Towards The Final Furlong

There’s not long now until our big York Racecourse wedding fayre and judging by the line-up we have put together I think we may well be on course for our best show yet!

If you are thinking of attending, don’t delay as you will make a big saving by buying your tickets early.

Visit http://www.theukweddingevent.co.uk/tickets to make your order for the chance to see over 100 top wedding suppliers all under the same roof for one day only.

Doors open on Sunday 23rd October from 10.30am ahead of a 3pm finish as we attempt to help you plan for your weddings, by offering you plenty of choice, entertainment including two fashion shows and food to keep you fuelled for an eventful day!

Hopefully this short promotional video will get you in the mood:

Over 1500 visitors joined us for the last wedding fayre at York Racecourse back in March and with a week to go and I think we may just surpass that figure. Every show we have staged at this wonderful venue has seen an increase in turnout, so let’s hope for more of the same next Sunday!

Speak soon
