Here at County Wedding Magazines and Events HQ, our heads are still reeling with excitement from our first Signature Events Wedding Show at Mercedes-Benz World – and what a huge success it was!
The location, Mercedes-Benz World, Surrey, (www.mercedes-benzworld.co.uk) was second to none, elegant, sophisticated and super-stylish, setting the tone of what was to come - our biggest event to date hosted on 17th March, 2019.
The vast Exhibition Hall was packed with more than 120 exhibitors, each supplier had a stand which was a feast for the eyes. All About Flowers (www.allaboutflowers.online) had gorgeous blossom trees filling the space, Mirror Image Events (www.mirrorimagevents.com) showcased their gorgeous floral selfie mirror, while new cake business Botanico (www.botanicocakes.co.uk) had a host of stunning creations on display that looked far too good to eat!
True to our event hosts, Mercedes-Benz World, the big-day transport options on offer at our Signature Event were exceptional. In the Brooklands Suite, catering vehicles included Daisy the vintage icecream van (www.daisyicecreamvan.co.uk), Woody's Event Bars (www.woodyseventbars.com), Beetle Juice Cocktail Bar (www.beetle-juice.co.uk), Beaufort Bar (www.beaufortbar.co.uk) and Utter Waffle (www.utterwaffle.co.uk) – all serving up delicious treats and tipples for our brides- and -grooms-to-be. And, if that wasn't enough for car-lovers everywhere, for the wedding day itself we had everything from Back to the Future's Delorean from Webbs of Weybridge (www.webbsofweybridge.co.uk), to vintage classics from Oxted Classic Cars (www.oxtedclassiccars.co.uk).
The day was truly inspiring, providing plenty of food for thought for our couples and their entourages planning weddings in Surrey and beyond.
Those looking for bridalwear were in for a treat; our fashion show was, simply, amazing. At 12.30pm the first of two fashion shows kicked off. First, singing waiters warmed up the crowd with a faultless performance, courtesy of Encore Entertainment (www.encoremanagement.co.uk), followed by a heart-felt rendition of Nessun Dorma, performed by Arran of Scarlett Heart Weddings and Events (www.scarlettheartweddings.com) who was also our on-the-day compère and styled the catwalk!
With the party in full swing, it was on to the fashion show where the Brides Visited (www.bridesvisited.co.uk) team and models showcased a stunning range of gowns from the boutique – along with some toe-tapping dance moves and a somersaulting groom! From This Moment (www.fromthismomentbridal.co.uk) then took over for the second part of the show with a selection of gorgeous, contemporary gowns for the modern bride, it was hard to pick a favourite – although I adored the half-beaded silver top with ballgown skirt and I'm sure the audience did too! These were complemented by dapper suits from Slaters Formalwear (www.slaters.co.uk).
There was so much to see on the day, that we're lucky it was all captured by Denise Winter Photography (www.denisewinterphotography.co.uk) so we can go back and see all the best bits again.
From entertainment to cocktails, cake tastings to photo booths, we can't wait for our next event on 28th and 29th September, 2019, where we get to do it all again over two days!
