The Luxury Wedding Show – what it’s really like inside!

Only three weeks ago I was wistfully telling my friend and sponsor Wendy Bell how I’d love to go to The Luxury Wedding Show – if only all the events weren’t so far away from my little base in Cheshire (I know, pitiful isn’t it…)

The Luxury Wedding Show seems to have cornered a niche in the UK wedding market – and not only that, there’s a wonderfully voyeuristic appeal too. From gorgeous designer wedding invitations to flowers and cakes, decor and more – it’s great to see the best in the UK wedding industry. Even if you’re not splashing out on a luxury wedding, wouldn’t it be fun to go and look around anyway, see what the more extravagant brides are buying? I know I’d love to see these shows from a wedding supplier’s point of view as well.

The Luxury Wedding Show: Show and Tell!

So Wendy very kindly said she’d do a little show and tell after the Luxury Wedding Show in London on the 25th of March. I have photos, commentary… it’s all here! Wendy gives a great insight into what the Luxury Wedding Shows are all about – I hope you find it as fascinating as I did!

This hotel is absolutely stunning! I wish I'd been able to take a tour around the whole thing; might have to have a night there one time; it's very funky whilst keeping all of the original features.

GC Couture's The "Isabella" cake was designed to complement one of Ian Stuart's wedding dresses as the two companies collaborated on a photo shoot together... you can definitely see the resemblance!

“I had the good fortune of speaking with the Director of GC Couture (Sach Singh). He’s a lovely man and was explaining to me that he’s only been in business for 6 years and started working from home. Now, he has a cupcake shop in Hatch End, Middlesex where you can come and buy cakes, and at the back they make the wedding cakes and apparently there’s a showroom upstairs for people to come and have a wedding cake consultation.

“He also said he’s a preferred/recommended supplier for quite a few of the major 5 star hotels in London. It’s a very impressive CV for a company that hasn’t even been running for a decade yet! They offer 36 different flavours of cake! I must say, after having tried some it is literally as good as it looks!” www.gccouture.co.uk

There are new designer wedding invitations here which even I haven’t seen – I adore the expressive ‘I love you’ invite in the centre of this picture, and even her little butterfly business cards… they remind me of this beautiful butterflies invitation from Wendy’s collection! www.wendybelldesigns.com

    I’m now in wedding stationery heaven! I think I’d probably never leave if I went to the show – they’d have to kick me out at closing time!

      Thank you Belinda! It was a great show and was really interesting to meet so many talented suppliers in the wedding industry. I’m exhibiting at the Luxury Wedding Show in the Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire in April too…very excited to see who else is exhibiting!
