Getting Hitched

After a difficult eighteen months of lockdown restrictions, engaged couples are looking forward to 2022 with renewed hope and excitement that their big day can finally take place. Together with family and friends they can share in their nuptials and look forward to a bright future ahead, full of adventure, love and happiness.

Planning a wedding can be very daunting as there can be a lot to arrange but, with careful planning, organisation and teamwork it can be as wonderful an experience as the big day itself. 

The sooner you can start planning elements of your special day the better, as suppliers will certainly be getting booked up for the 2022/2023 seasons. We are fortunate in the South East, not only to have a fabulous array of wedding venues, to suit all budgets and tastes, but we also play host to some of the biggest wedding fairs in the country. They are a great way to gain ideas and inspiration, meet some of the finest suppliers within the industry, browse products and collect samples. There are a whole host of wedding professionals, specialists in their fields, who are there to help and offer advice to keep the preparations for your wedding day as stress free and enjoyable as possible. 

With everything from bridalwear and accessories to cake makers and celebrants, videographers and cars, to stationery and rings, if you have just got engaged or are looking for inspiration, you’ll find it all under one roof. Plus, it’s a great day out for both bride and groom-to-be and members of the bridal party to get involved.
