A VISIT to the etc Wedding Show is a must for all those tying the knot.
The luxury event – organised by the Echo’s sister publication, etc magazine – will be held at Rockliffe Hall, in Hurworth, near Darlington, on March 25 and promises to be a glamorous affair.
Whether you’ve got a traditional day in mind, or you’re a bride with more contemporary ideas, the etc Wedding Show will feature 30 hand-picked exhibitors with an array of ideas to help you plan your perfect day.
There will also be a spectacular catwalk show with the latest bridal gown trends and men’s formal wear.
What’s more, the first 150 callers who ring 501 7114 will go free (maximum of two tickets per caller). But don’t worry if you miss out on the offer, all brides go free too.
etc editor Georga Spottiswood said: “It is every girl’s dream to have a fairytale wedding and the etc team has waved its magic wand to help make that happen.
“Our event will feature the crème de la crème of the wedding industry and there will be everything from cars and cakes to beauty tips and wedding hair ideas – all the essential ingredients to make sure your big day is one to remember.”
Brides-to-be, grooms and their families will be given five-star treatment at the etc Wedding Show with a glass of champagne on arrival.
They will then get to browse the stands, visualise their wedding ceremony taking place in the elegant Old Hall or glass-roofed Victorian Orangery – which will be set up as if to host a civil wedding – then sit back and relax while etc puts on a glittering catwalk show.
The event will take place from 11am to 5pm, with visitors being allocated one of three times slots.
etc director Linda Burnside said: “There will be something for every bride at the etc Wedding Show.
“This is an exclusive event and tickets are limited, so I’d advise people to call straight away.”
Sponsors of the etc Wedding Show are Poppy Bridal, Hooker and Young, Stan Seaton Photography and Simply Bows and Chair Covers.
All will be there showing brides and grooms how to add the special touches to their day.
etc has also teamed up with many of the exhibitors to offer one lucky bride and groom the chance to win some amazing prizes.
They will include bridal make-up for the bride on her big day, courtesy of Eve Beauty Darlington, and a honeymoon at Rockliffe Hall worth more than £1,000.
The first 150 callers go free, as do all brides. All tickets are pre-paid only (usual ticket price is £7). Call 501 7114.
