This years National Wedding Show in February at the Olympia in London was of course a huge success, and we were lucky enough to grab a ticket! We decided not to exhibit at the February showcase but we did send our team member Steph along to do some blogging! Despite arriving an hour too early, the que was busy and the show was even busier! See below some fab pictures from the day and the top highlights…

This years National Wedding Show was home to over 300 exhibitors, all of which are the best in their industry! The ‘Rock n Roll’ section is ever growing with new alternative wedding businesses and is a real treat for the eyes! Of course Kat herself from Rock n Roll Bride was there alongside her partner Gareth. They were accompanied by the wonderful Crown and Glory – bespoke and alternative headwear for brides!

The Best Bits

Here I have chosen a few of my favourite bits from this show for you:

The Rock n Roll Bride collection — bringing yet more and more alternative bridal options to the show is just wonderful!

The DIY Creative Classes — gaining top tips and tutorials from the best in the biz on how to DIY your wedding day!

The Champagne Bar, because, well, champagne! We may not have had any (boooo!) but it did look fabulous!

The Goodie Bags; the VIP ones were amazing with heaps of beauty products, while the normal still had some yummy treats and lots of good bridal info
