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.

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!

It’s wedding season again!

Hello everyone and thanks for visiting The UK Wedding Event website.

It’s that time of the year again when we are all running around chasing our tail as we gear up for a whole host of wedding fayres including two massive shows at York Racecourse on Sunday 23rd October and at Leeds United’s Elland Road stadium on Sunday 13th November.

The first of the horizon is at Mercure Fairfield Manor in York on Sunday 4th September (today in fact as I type this at 01:21 in the morning!) and it promises to be another busy day.

Over 500 visitors came through the door for our first ever event at this venue back in January and judging by the pre-booked activity it will be a similar turnout this time with 400 already snapped up at the time of writing.

You can either pre-book your tickets before the event starts at 10.30am and enter our prize draw as well as offering the advantage of a fast track admission or simply turn up in person with your family and friends and we will check you in there and then.

However, you choose to do it, the process is quick and easy and best still free! Great value I’m sure you’ll agree for the chance to see over 40 wonderful suppliers all under one roof.mercure fairfield manor

By the way, we have had one exhibitor have to drop out at the last minute for personal reasons, so if you are reading this now and would like to take that place, please get in touch now if time permits.

The events really do start coming at our thick and fast. We have some old favourites and some new venues offering something for everyone.

On Sunday 18th September, we are at Weetwood Hall for the very first time on the outskirts of Leeds, followed by a return to The Crown Hotel in Harrogate for the second time this year on Sunday 25th September.

The final intimate wedding fayre we are organising this year is another new venue for us at the beautiful Engine Shed in Wetherby on Sunday 2nd October.

All three of these shows have attracted some wonderful varied exhibitors and once again admission is free to everyone!!

As mentioned previously, we also have two large wedding fayres to round off the year including a return to York Racecourse on 23rd October for our flagship show which we can proudly boost to having already filled every single one of our regular exhibiting stands and we still have nearly two months to go!

On that note, I’m going to wrap up this article now as my bed is calling and I have got a busy day in front of me and therefore need some sleep!
