The Wedding Affair at The York Marriott Hotel: Review…
Phew… we have had an incredibly busy few weeks here at The Wedding Affair. On the 22nd of January we headed to our first luxury show of the year, bright and early. Well, what I really when I say bright and early – it was frosty, and typically not bright at all.
So, off we headed to the gorgeous York Marriott Hotel, where they have being playing host to beautiful fairs for 7 years now. We adore working with The Marriott Hotel, not only are they always so accommodating, but you can be sure of a warm welcome and smiles all round.
P.s A huge thank you to the very lovely, and talented Joanne B Photography for taking such beautiful images of the show!
A Little About The York Marriott Hotel…
The York Marriott hotel is a gorgeous city centre hotel. It’s absolutely perfect for a York wedding venue, all the lovely restaurants, beautiful sights, gardens and museums that York are famed for are only a short walk away. You can’t get much better than that, right?
Not only that, but you won’t need to worry about how your guests will arrive, the transport links are great. The train station is just up the road, and the A64 (main road) is ever so close. The York Marriott Hotel also has plenty of free parking, so no need to worry about where your Aunts car is going to stay over the celebrations either!
There are also countless options for your very own wedding at The York Marriott Hotel, whether you are seeking an intimate affair, or perhaps a larger celebration. There are rooms to accommodate for both!
Perhaps you are fancying a summer time wedding? Well if the weather holds out, and the sun is shining – why not opt for your ceremony to take place outdoors? Did you know that The York Marriott Hotel is the only venue in York that is registered for outdoor weddings? So, you can be sure your wedding will be unique, special and one to remember.
The hotel has beautiful landscaped gardens, in fact 5 acres of them! This means that your ceremony will look simply stunning held outside, not to mention the lovely views of The York Racecourse.
If you joined us on the 22nd of January you will have seen the true variety of suppliers that we had. Yes, we had everything from ever so talented photographers, swoonworthy designer gowns, bespoke menswear, larger than life blooms and of course everything in between that we all love so much about weddings.
Did you see the creations that our stylists and florists put together – I Bloom Florists, Tracy Williamson Designs and Dutch Nurseries definitely provided the prettiness of the day. Everything from buttonholes for the men, beautiful bouquets and even petals for the flower girls.
Not only did the florists provide the pretty, but the gowns that were at the show really did give us all the feels. The Bridal Affair featuring Curvy Bridal, Bridal Rogue Gallery, Thimbelina Of York and Forevermore Bridal Wear exhibited with us, and we are all so glad we got a sneak peak at all their new 2017 collections. Brides-to-be you are all definitely in for a treat with so many gorgeous gowns to choose from.
Not only did we have everything for the Bride’s and Groom’s (I know we are spoiling you) but we still had occasion wear that is to die for from Rag Doll Of Pudsey. Mothers of the bride, you are too in for a treat, with top end designers such as Ian Stuart and millinery that matches down to a tee.
Nor could we forget the boys either. Premium suits are available to hire from Harrogate Suit hire, oh and the cars? We had plenty of them too, who said wedding fairs and showcases were just for the ladies? There was plenty of cake to sample too from Swirly Sweet and Where The Ribbon Ends! Just take a look at these masterpieces below – plus we can vouch for the fact they tasted delicious too…
Once again, thank you to everyone who joined us on the day, it was an amazing show and it’s always such a great one to start wedding fair season of with. There will soon be a blog posted all about the stunning Ripon Cathedral show too, which took place on the 28th January.
We do hope you will join us for our next luxury show – The Wedding Affair at Goldsborough Hall, 26th February, 12-3pm. They will be showcasing their dreamy new Orangery, and of course the venue on a whole. One for the diary…
