Thousands of happy couples, not to mention many mums, sisters, bridesmaids and friends of the bride and groom-to-be made their way to the Titanic Exhibition Centre for the autumn Wedding Journal Show Belfast. And what a show it was!
The show kicked off on Saturday morning and the excitement was palpable as the country’s leading wedding businesses and suppliers made finishing touches to the their stands before the doors open and the crowds arrived.
Eden Bridal was awarded Best Stand as their eye-catching digital display caught the attention of visitors and our eagle-eyed judges.
Show visitors spent hours browsing the stands and chatting to various wedding experts, as one bride-to-be said:
I came here to look at venues, but spotted my dream dress on the catwalk. I can’t believe it, I’m so excited. Not only that but we also booked our venue.”
Our talented team of dancing models kept the crowds entertained with their show stopping moves, modelling jaw-dropping dresses and the very latest in grooms wear.
Brides-to-be had the opportunity to get a close up look at an array of bridesmaid gowns, wedding dresses and headpieces, on the Bridal Boulevard’s mini-catwalk presented by Stephen and Sonya from Q Radio. Models showcased the latest 2017 styles from Perfect Day, LA Bridal House, Eden Bridal, and Jenny Lindop to name just a few.
Our VIP area was a specially erected luxurious marquee from Northdown Marquees. Guests enjoyed a glass of bubbly from McGuigan, Frizzante, cupcakes by Justines Cakes and Bakes, and a fab goodie bag for our VIP Beauty Partner Benefit Cosmetics.
The Benefit team were on hand throughout the day offering free makeup lessons and application to show goers.
Our Hair and Makeup partner Lounge NI styled our models’ hair and makeup, and ran workshops over the course of the weekend.
We gave away a Celebrity style honeymoon!
On Sunday afternoon seven couples took to the stage for the ‘Win a Celebrity Style Honeymoon’ final to compete for a chance to honeymoon on their own private island in the Caribbean in association with Pinnacle Worldwide, Scrub Island and Inter Caribbean Airways. An ecstatic Gary Robinson and Claire Bradely were announced as the winners and are looking forward to the honeymoon of a lifetime.
The wedding Journal Show team are looking forward to our spring shows in 2017. See you then!
