Ocean Media has reported its National Wedding Show season has closed on a high, attracting growth in both visitor and exhibitor numbers.
The organiser held its autumn shows at Earls Court on 27-29 September, and at The NEC on 4-6 October, attracting a total of 29,357 visitors (subject to audit).
Throughout the six days of the two events, more than 500 exhibitors showcased the latest in bridal and wedding trends, up 13 per cent at Earls Court, and six per cent at The NEC.
Highlights from the season’s shows included Inspiration Sessions led by wedding specialist Kate Smallwood, and the Catwalk Shows, which took place four times each day, displaying the latest bridal trends and wedding themes from a selection of designers.
The ‘nation’s largest and most established wedding show’ celebrated its 22nd anniversary this year and continues to grow. An edition will open in Manchester in 2014.
Earlier this year, Ocean Media expanded its bridal show further with the acquisition of the UK Wedding Show.
