THE Great Western Wedding Show taking place at Swindon’s Steam museum in January is set to be the biggest yet.
It will feature over 60 exhibitors, a popular shopping area, catwalk shows, live music, inspiration zones, beauty consultations and workshops.
There will be a pop-up café serving hot drinks and refreshments, plus a sponsored prosecco bar.
The two-day event is organised by The Whitewed Directory and takes place on the January 13 and 14.
Chiseldon House is sponsoring day one of the Prosecco Bar and it’s expected that DoubleTree by Hilton Swindon will sponsor the second day.
The first Great Western Wedding Show was held at the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet in February 2016 and proved a great success.
Natalie Lovett, managing director of The Whitewed Directory, said: “This time around, we wanted to take the show to a larger scale, building on and overtaking what we achieved previously.
“A large event like this enables us to be creative with our offering and cherry pick the very best elements from other events.
“We have experience of organising over 100 successful wedding shows and are well known for putting on excellent events that are invaluable for both couples planning weddings and exhibitors. The event will provide couples with a show that’s not just for weddings, but for their lifestyle – and offer them a treat too.”
Throughout the event, a live feed will be available on social media to showcase everything that’s on offer. It will be available to view live on Facebook, plus there will be plenty of photos and updates to see and share throughout the two days.
Steam is the home of the Museum of the Great Western Railway and holds a special place in the hearts of the organising team.
Natalie said: “What better place to hold a show of this standing than in the home of The Whitewed Directory, where we started our story?
“It’s a venue that showcases what Swindon is all about.”
She would like to see the show develop to become a yearly, unmissable wedding event on the South West calendar, for both engaged couples and exhibitors alike.
Wiltshire, Dorset and Hampshire Bride magazine has agreed to be an official media partner for the event.
