The weekend just gone was the weekend of Bride: The Wedding Show at Westpoint in Exeter, it was a great weekend and here is our little round up of it.
We set up the stand on Friday afternoon, one of the reasons we love doing Bride: The Wedding Show is because, unlike small wedding shows where you just get a table, at Bride you get a full shell scheme stand and we can really bring our brand into the show in a much more bold and fully formed way. We set out our stand to feel homely, with some seating and a coffee table which allows us to sit with couples and discuss what they are looking for along with showing them our stunning albums.
We also make sure to have some beautiful framed prints hanging as well as a screen with a montage of some of our favourite work. So that even at the busier times of the day people can see our work as they walk around the show.
The show started on the Saturday with the usual manic first few hours, we managed to speak to lots of great couples that morning, hearing some of their beautiful wedding plans. We also spoke to lots of couples who were right at the start of their wedding planning, still looking for venues.
As the day went on the pace of the day slowed down and we had a steady stream of couples and wedding planning groups coming to see us, some with an idea of what they liked in terms of wedding photography styles and some with no idea about the different styles of wedding photography.
The Sunday started off in a similar busy fashion where we again got to speak to lots of couples and discuss some amazing wedding ideas. It is always so interesting hearing which venues couples have chosen as well as some of the really individual and quirky ideas people have.
We had a really fun and successful weekend exhibiting as a photographer at Bride: The Wedding Show, it is always such a pleasure speaking to couples about their wedding plans and showing them some of our work. We also got to meet some amazing new wedding suppliers who had stands around us and talk to some old friends who we work alongside at various weddings and wedding shows. There is always a great atmosphere between all the exhibitors and it we really enjoy bumping into wedding suppliers we haven't seen for a while.
All in all this wedding show was a real success and we had a great time exhibiting at it, we will be at the next Bride: The Wedding Show at Westpoint in October.
