Wedding Extravaganza 2014

In February, The Barn at Bury Court hosted its annual Wedding Extravaganza. The event showcased 37 local businesses, offering wedding services including beauty, photography, cakes and catering, cars and entertainment. Existing suppliers attended as well as some new contacts The Barn is pleased to support.

Despite the weather, with the never ending rain and flooding in the area, the event was a huge success with well over a three hundred people attending, including 134 brides. Wedding fairs are perfect for brides planning their big day, as they are able to meet a range suppliers under one roof, to discuss their requirements and also touch base with suppliers they have already booked for their wedding day.

Throughout the day, there were two fashion shows presented by Amaryllis Bridalwear in Alton, with a selection of their beautiful bridal gowns, as well as some bridesmaids dresses. Farnham based Pink Daisies looked after the models’ hair and makeup. Anthony Hirewear, from Godalming, also staged a fashion show of men’s wear.

We would like to thank Jigsaw Events for supplying the catwalk and Stress Free Hire for dressing the runway for the shows. Thanks also to Chess Discos, from Guildford, for providing the accompanying music during the fashion shows.

Throughout the day, everyone was well catered for, with our wedding caterers, Jacaranda, offering delicious canape samples. The Mobile Pizzeria was very generous, offering mini pizzas in a variety of toppings and Coffee Charisma ran a coffee shop in the gallery of the barn overlooking the event.

Once again, the Extravaganza very successful and very much enjoyed by those who attended. Thanks to all the other suppliers who made the event possible by offering their range of services. The event has become an important fixture in our calendar, so keep an eye out for next year’s event.
