Attracting thousands of brides and grooms each year, it was high time that CHWV took a trip to Brides The Show!

Brides The Show was back with a bang and this year, Kathryn, our Social Media Executive and Rory, our Online Copywriter, made the trip to the Business Design Centre in London to see the latest trends and what was on offer to wow the eager attendees. They've written all about their visit so we can hear how much fun they had!

The annual show took place on the 30th September to 2nd October and featured hundreds of amazing exhibitors who were showcasing their wares to brides and grooms-to-be over the busy weekend. They were there to showcase everything from mouth-watering cakes to majestic honeymoon locations, and a lot more in between! We got there on the first day so that we could be first through the door and experience first-hand everything that was going on.

When we entered, the first thing to catch our eyes was a feast of unbelievable wedding cakes! This assortment of spectacular sweet treats included an incredible fruit and veg-themed beauty by Nevie-Pie Cakes and a jaw-dropping unicorn carousel cake by Tattooed Bakers.

We began making our way around the stands, meeting amazing florists, cake designers and stationers left, right and centre! We were particularly drawn in by this magical hanging garden by Grandirosa and the stunning wedding shoes of Charlotte Mills, and her mum who told us all about them!

After much fawning over pretty wedding things, it was time for the Americas catwalk show, which featured a collection of breathtaking wedding dresses, never before seen in the UK. The show featured gowns by Elizabeth Fillmore, Tony Ward and Romona Keveza to name but a few, and showcased some of the cutting-edge styles and amazing ideas that are being created across the pond.

It was great to see some of the latest colour schemes and wedding styles on display throughout the exhibition. There were some amazing decorative ideas so that couples could see what is possible and start to plan their special day, like these colourful table ideas to suit any theme!

There were so many great wedding suppliers to speak to and products to admire for the whole show, but a couple really caught our eye! Georgia's Cakes specialises in mouth-watering wedding cakes with a truly unique style, and we couldn't resist getting a closer look at them!

Zita Elze's floral display was stunningly beautiful, presenting a picture-perfect, all white wedding scene. It looked magnificent and drew all the attendees in with her incredible blooms and decorations. Just take a look!
