Making fairytales come true

IT is your big day and everything should be perfect.

And at the etc Wedding Show we have everything to make sure your wedding is just that.

Taking place on Sunday, March 25, at the stunning Rockliffe Hall, a five-star hotel in Hurworth, near Darlington, the day will feature 30 handpicked exhibitors as well as a spectacular catwalk showcasing the latest bridal gown trends, mother-of-the bride must-haves and men’s formal wear.

Georga Spottiswood, editor of the etc lifestyle magazine, which is produced by the Mail’s parent company Northeast Press, said: “It is every girl’s dream to have a fairytale wedding and the etc team has waved its magic wand to help make that happen.

“Our event will feature the crème de la crème of the wedding industry and there will be everything from cars and cakes to beauty tips and wedding hair ideas – all the essential ingredients to make sure your big day is one to remember.

“I cannot wait for this event, it is going to be amazing.”

Brides-to-be and their families will be given five-star treatment at the wedding show with a glass of champagne on arrival.

They will then get to browse the stands, visualise their wedding ceremony taking place in the elegant Old Hall or glass-roofed Victorian Orangery – which will be set up as if to host a civil wedding – then sit back and relax while etc puts on a glittering catwalk show.

The event will take place from 11am to 5pm, with visitors being allocated one of three time slots.

etc has also teamed up with many of the exhibitors to offer one lucky bride and groom the chance to win some amazing prizes.

They will include bridal make-up for the bride on her big day, courtesy of Eve Beauty Darlington, and a stay at Rockliffe Hall worth more than £1,000.

Tickets, costing £7, must be purchased in advance and are available by calling Lynn Wild on (0191) 5017114.
