Wedding shows are a great source for securing a range of suppliers, taking advantage of discounts on offer and seeing what’s on trend as inspiration for your own occasion, all to truly kick-start your wedding planning.

The largest of the wedding shows to be taking place in Ayrshire are detailed below.

Last weekend was the wonderful Ayrshire Wedding Show held at the Ayr Racecourse and we had a fabulous time again, for our sixth year running.  We met so many wonderful brides-to-be with their families and friends who are getting married either this year, 2015 or haven’t yet found the right venue.  Thank you to everyone who popped by our display at stand #39 and we hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as us.  Here’s some photos from the weekend.
