The show must go on!

In the words of Queen and Freddie Mercury the show must go on even if it is set to be a winter wedding wonderland!

Granted no one could have predicted snow in the middle of March but that is the hand we have been dealt for our big wedding fayre at York Racecourse, and despite the weather problems on Saturday and overnight, the event will be going ahead from 10.30am.

If you have booked tickets or made plans to attend today, please do still come along and join us in the warmth of the racecourse for a cracking day of wedding inspiration.

It goes without saying we would ask you all to drive carefully and allow a little extra time for the conditions, but the main roads should all be clear, and we will be making provisions too to ensure that you aren’t waiting outside in the cold.

So let’s not a little bit of snow get in the way of what promises to be a great day!

Kind Regards

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!
