Trio of shows will wow brides and grooms

THREE wedding shows are set to wow would-be brides and grooms.

Luxury lifestyle magazine etc, which is published by the Hartlepool Mail’s parent company, Northeast Press, is hosting three wedding shows, with the first set to be held this weekend.

The first will be held at the luxurious Linden Hall, in Northumberland, this Sunday and the others will be held at Rockliffe Hall on March 24 and September 29.

etc editor Georga Spottiswood said: “We started the wedding events at Rockliffe Hall last year and they proved such a hit that we have now decided to extend into the Northumberland area.

“Linden Hall is a beautiful venue and we’re calling out to all brides and grooms-to-be to come along and join in the fun.

“There’ll be plenty to see and do and we have hand-picked the best exhibitors from across the region.”

At all three events, which will be held from noon to 4pm, there will be free fizz, catwalk shows – in association with Headline Models – and top-class wedding exhibitors. They will feature everything from bridal gowns to hats and groomswear.

Some of the best wedding photographers in the industry will be there to showcase their talent and there will be a range of cars you can choose from to help you travel in style on your big day.

Georga added: “The wedding exhibitions are always a great day out for brides and grooms-to-be.

“The last one we held at Rockliffe Hall attracted more than 450 people and we’re hoping all our events this year will have a great turn out.

“We’ll be hosting catwalk shows at the events and they always go down well with the ladies. We have some stunning collections lined up for the models to strut their stuff in.”

Brides-to-be and their families can expect five-star treatment at the wedding shows.

On arrival each bride will receive a goodie bag and glass of champagne, then have the opportunity to browse around the stalls.

etc publisher Linda Burnside said: “We’ve done all the hard work by carefully selecting the very best exhibitors. Brides and grooms-to-be can come along knowing we are showcasing only the finest in the wedding industry.

“The events will be ones to remember.”
