2018 Luxury Spring Showcases & Fairs for the Discerning Bride and Groom
Morning, loves! Can you believe that Christmas is literally just around the corner? This year is going by in a total whirlwind and I’m struggling to keep up! With that been said, that means that engagement season is in full swing and we’re so ready to see all your sparkling new additions.
For those of you who are not yet wed and are on your pretty planning journeys, boy, do we have a treat for you! I’m sure you will have heard us talking non-stop about our rather special array of wedding fairs coming to a location near you very soon, after all, we are planning for what is going to be an extremely busy Spring season.
In fact, it will be the busiest for a while, with 11 (and counting!) stunning luxury shows for you to attend before June. And below? I’ve got all the details of every single beautiful venue that will be playing host, making it easier for you to find out how you can be there selecting the up-most talented suppliers and venturing around some of Yorkshire’s most prestigious wedding venues.
Oh, and before we forget, there will be Prosecco. Lot’s of it.
The York Marriott Hotel
First up, in just a couple of months, on the 21st of September, 12-3pm we will be at the city chic hotel, The York Marriott Hotel & Spa.
It’s fair to say that this show is always a huge success, and undoubtedly one of the largest wedding fairs in York; with an average of over 200 brides attending each show. I mean it could be the delicious canapés, Prosecco, or the fact you will get to chat to a vast variety of York’s premium wedding suppliers; all on hand, ready to help you plan your perfect day.
The Ultimate Wedding Affair at Ripon Cathedral
Next, we are at the absolutely breath-taking Ripon Cathedral – the picture perfect setting for a wedding show with 100+ exhibitors, catwalks, cocktails, cakes and entertainment; in fact, this one’s our largest most prestigious events of the year, so this seems like the perfect picturesque place to start with…
We’re delighted to invite you to join us on Saturday 27th January 12-4pm for The Wedding Affair Traditional and Vintage Show at Ripon Cathedral – If you’ve got a sparkling ring on your finger you are most definitely in for a treat, so, quick!

Bridal Deluxe – The Pavillions In Association with Belle Bridal
Bridal Deluxe The Show in association with the glossiest Belle Bridal Magazine is Yorkshire’s brand new consumer Luxury Wedding Event, a carefully curated presentation of over 120 of the region’s luxury wedding suppliers in the most stylish of venues. A fresh, modern take on wedding shows with a nod to all things super stylish.

The Wedding Affair at Goldsborough Hall is undoubtedly one of our most beautiful wedding fairs. I mean, just look at the stunning photographs we have from last year’s showcase.
Goldsborough Hall not only is a gorgeous wedding venue close to Knaresborough and Harrogate, but it’s steeped in Royal History. With beautifully kept gardens (12 acres to be precise) stately rooms and the loveliest of staff, it’s a wonderful wedding fair to visit and perfect choice as a wedding venue.
