On 18 September, I exhibited at the Aspire Events Wedding Fair, at the Chateau Impney Hotel. The Chateau is a superb venue, located in the Worcestershire countryside.
We arrived to the buzz of wedding suppliers erecting stands, organising their wares and some, putting the final touches to their displays. Wedding dresses! Wedding rings! Florists! Photographers! I always love the ‘pamper’ stands; lots of lovely scents and oils, even a quick massage – if you’re lucky! With the help of my team, we were set up, soon enough (thanks everyone!).
The Chateau Impney Hotel
The doors opened at 11 am. Excited brides-to-be, partners and parents poured in, full of excitement and great expectations!
I had the privilege of singing on the centre stage, supported by the great Basil Gabbidon, on acoustic guitar. My choice of song, ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’, is a timeless wedding classic, which was well received by the audience.
As well as being a platform to attract new business, wedding fairs provide a great opportunity to network with other wedding professionals, share experiences and gain some really good tips and ideas. I’ll definitely invest in some speaker scrims!!!
Thanks to everyone who checked out my stand. Next stop, Holiday day Inn, Great Barr, 13/11/16. Hope to see you there!
