I will be exhibiting at the Destination Wedding Show on Sunday 14th October 2018. The show will be at the Buttermarket, Howard St, Shrewsbury SY1 2LF. It’s a great location because it’s 90 minutes from Liverpool, Manchester or Birmingham. The show is set up by Jason Rodgers, a photographer who specialises in destinations weddings. He has photographed beautiful weddings all over the world.
This show has a clear focus on the couples who want to go abroad to get married. You might be considering going somewhere beautiful and amazing, just to the two of you, eloping in secret, or you might be planning on bringing a small group of your close family and friends, or perhaps even a large group. But if you know you don’t want to tie the knot at home, and you’re looking for advice, ideas and inspiration on where to go to get married, then this show will have lots of exhibitors ready to share their knowledge with you.
The Buttermarket, an iconic grade 2 listed building, is Shropshire’s biggest entertainment venue. There is limited free on street parking situated outside the Buttermarket, and if you can’t park there then there is a large 24 hour car park situated behind it (SY1 2DQ). The venue is right across the street from the train station, so it’s easy to get to even if you don’t drive.
Three will be people like me, who specialise in one location and have in-depth knowledge of the place, and also photographers and travel agents who have a wider knowledge of lots of places. There will be a catwalk and fashion show throughout the day showcasing bridal wear, suits and bridesmaid dresses.
This is sure to be a popular wedding show. Almost one out of every four weddings of British couples is considered a destination wedding, a statistic I keep reading in lots of places. Apparently most of those destination weddings occur in the continental US, presumably because it’s so easy to have a legally recognised wedding in the US. There’s no need to have a register office wedding ceremony at home afterwards – just one wedding day and it is legally binding on your return home.
Jason tells me that all couples who register their details with him, either in advance or on the door will go in to a draw to win a dream destination wedding worth up to £10,000! Tickets are free! There will also be a chance to win other prizes and giveaways, plus the first 100 to arrive will receive a goody bag on the day. I wonder what an exhibitor has to do to get their hands on a goody bag…
Let me know if you are planning on coming to see me there and I will look out for you, I love to chat with couples in person about their wedding plans.
