Venues, outfits and cakes are usually top of the list of things to prepare for a dream wedding.

But, as well as those, visitors to the Lynn News wedding show on Sunday had the chance to find out more about a wide range of other things they may not have considered for their big day.

More than 100 brides-to-be attended the show at the Red Barn in South Runcton to browse over 30 different trade stands.

The visitors included some who had travelled from as far afield as Maidstone in Kent, as well as many more from right across Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Lincolnshire.

Mark Stanford, Anglia Newspapers’ events manager, said: “It was a really good collection of exhibitors.

“We had very positive feedback including one who said it was the best show ever with a really good mix.”

Several wedding venues, vehicle hire, clothing and photographic companies were represented at the show.

Meanwhile, the more unusual exhibitors included the Chanot Ensemble string quartet, magician Gus Wilson, toastmaster Kim Sheldrick and representatives of Owl Ring Bearers, who are based at Aldeburgh, near Harleston, and train barn owls to deliver the rings from one end of a wedding venue to the other during the ceremony.

And a hog roast and pizzas were on the menu for those looking to take a break from browsing among all the stalls.

The show was one of two shows jointly hosted by the Lynn News and the Red Barn. The spring 2016 show will take place on Sunday, March 20.
