International Women’ s Day on 8th March will be a day that welcomes brides-to-be from across Devon to the hugely popular and highly acclaimed Big North Devon Wedding Show. Held in the EWE2 arena with an adjoining marquee which overlooks The BIG Sheep family attraction this wedding show guarantees to be bigger and better that the inaugural wedding fair which was held last September.
‘Devon Wedding Fairs’ owned and managed by ‘Weddings by Claire’ are a dynamic, vibrant, passionate and engaging team of event professionals with a true love for Weddings.
“Our inaugural September wedding show was a huge success” says Claire. “The response from exhibitors and brides alike was amazing. We were inundated with brides and families on the day, with over 700 visitors, and in excess of 300 brides attending our first show. This ensured we delivered the best event we could to all Devon and Cornwall’s fantastic wedding suppliers, many of whom booked straight away for the next show”
This year’s wedding show will have something extra for grooms, best men and fathers off the bride – they can pop along to ‘Ram’s Corner’ and pick up tips and skills to help them deliver a great wedding speech without feeling nervous or anxious. Bespoke gifts for male guests and ‘best men’ will be available in the form of cask conditioned real ales brewed at The BIG Sheep’s micro brewery. Labelled bottles can be designed with images and personal text creating unique wedding memories.
The Big North Devon Wedding Show is a must ‘go to’ show for South West brides and will not only provide the ideal opportunity to meet 60+ Devon & Cornwall wedding suppliers in a unique environment, the wedding show will also deliver a stunning catwalk show, gorgeous product demonstrations, pop-up hair and beauty salon, and unique offers galore.
Another added addition to this year’s wedding show will be a fantastic ‘Dream Wedding Package’ raffle will also available for everyone who attends to buy a ticket to win an exclusive prize package to the value of £3,000. All money raised from the raffle will go in its entirety to the ‘Wedding Wishing Well Foundation.,’ and Nicola Alder, event’s co-ordinator at the BIG Sheep said. ‘The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation is a new organisation launched in 2012 with a single purpose – organising and funding weddings for terminally ill people.
