The Lynn News Wedding Fair was held on Sunday at the Red Barn in South Runcton and proved a great success with visitors and stallholders.
More than 100 brides-to-be paid a visit to the 40 stands offering must-have services and goods to make that special day absolutely perfect.
This is the fifth year that the show has been mounted at the Red Barn and it goes from strength to strength.
Among the exhibitors joining the show this year were Derrick’s Delicacies hog roast, which gave visitors to the show a delicious complementary pork roll and made £140 in donations to Macmillan Cancer UK.
There were florists, cake-makers, bridal outfitters, photographers, videographers, toastmasters, a London double-decker bus, vintage car, a VW camper van, a DJ, prop hirers, caterers also offering complementary samples ... in fact everything you could dream of for your wedding day (and some things you couldn’t!)
The owl wedding ring delivery service once again put in an appearance. They undertake to deliver the rings from the front door of the church to the happy couple – by the medium of a flying owl!
The weather on Sunday perked up considerably and gave a real taste of spring.
“We have had a great day, overall interest has been good,” said one stallholder.
Another said: “A really first class exhibition.”
Mark Stanford, Lynn News’ events organiser, said: “This just gets better and better. The exhibitors were getting really good leads, which makes it rewarding for me to have organised. But for the brides and grooms-to-be I could see it was a really enjoyable event with a great atmosphere.”
The Chanot Ensemble provided a touch of class with a selection of classical music throughout the show.
And Twilight Bars provided some wonderful cocktails to whet the whistle of thirsty visitors.
The event was mounted with the support of the owners of the Red Barn, the Rockcliffe family.
