The 2016 Wedding season has started with a bang and this weekend sees us attend our second wedding fair this month at the Newmarket Racecourse, so do drop by and have a chat!
The Newmarket Wedding Show is set in the prestigious Millennium Grandstand building at Rowley Mile Racecourse, Newmarket. The Rowley Mile Centre is a unique and historic setting for the event. Set on the Suffolk/Cambridgeshire border in the heart of East Anglia and bringing together wedding suppliers from around the local area.
This wedding fair is totally free to attend. We recommend you book a fast track ticket by clicking here. This will get you straight into the show without queuing or waiting, just pick up your goodie bag from the registration point.
The show runs from 11am till 4.00pm and will feature around 130 exhibitors over 3 floors inside the building as well as outdoor displays. You can see Putterfingers on Stand G20 on the Ground Floor.
The Newmarket Wedding Show is a great place to get ideas and inspiration for products and styling for your wedding. As always, there is a feast of stands to look over with everything from wedding venues, exquisite floristry to wedding cars and cakes, to stationery, jewellers and photography.
But let’s not forget crazy golf as a unique and novel way of entertaining all ages at your wedding. There are very few activities that allow all members of your bridal party to join in!
Our Sales Manager Shelley Barrett, will be on hand to chat through your requirements for your special day at the weding fair and also tempt some of the grooms and groomsmen to join in the crazy golf fun.
Congratulations to all the new brides-to-be for 2016 and 2017 and we hope you enjoy the show as much as we do!
Whatever your wedding theme there are a number of different wedding entertainment ideas to suit all budgets.
What better way to celebrate a Summer wedding than with a seaside or a country garden party feel. An eclectic mix of village style games to keep the guests of all ages entertained, retro party games, bunting adorned buildings and serving drinks in glasses with retro striped straws.
Our crazy golf courses are a popular feature to those yearning for a country wedding theme or a seaside theme to celebrate a summer ceremony in style. Make the most of the grassed spaces at your venue with lawn games such as our portable golf course, giant Jenga, skittle and hoopla and re-awaken the sentiment of the games we played and enjoyed as kids.
One of the latest trends in the wedding world is a vintage ice cream van serving ice creams to your guests as they mingle outside after the ceremony. Who could resist ice cream and crazy golf to recreate fun memories of family holidays and childhood memories? That’s what weddings are all about after all aren’t they?
Here’s our favourite local ice cream van hire business Sweet Ally Scoops and her van ‘Lottie’.
Ally serves delicious ice cream flavours such as hand picked blackberry, salted butter caramel and a delightful sounding Henham honey and lavender flavour from ‘Lottie’, a charming 1973 Bedford CF vintage ice cream van.
Keeping in the vintage theme, one of our recent wedding couples hired a VW campervan to bring them to the ceremony – rather novel wedding transport! Of course the guests loved the opportunity for photographs both inside and out. The wedding couple then took the campervan on their honeymoon driving around the idyllic British countryside – very retro.
Entertainment can set you back financially if you don’t shop around. Our portable crazy golf hire can be anything from our Bitesize four hole course through to our full Supersize nine hole course and we can offer custom courses to suit your budget and any space constraints.
I will be celebrating my 13th wedding anniversary this year which is a lace inspired anniversary. A hot trend this year is apparently lace wedding gowns, but after marrying overseas and as much as this blog is making me want to get married all over again, my other half will be relieved that I don’t wish to wear a wedding dress again anytime soon!
