Wedding Fair Season is in full swing!

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!

Crazy Golf exhibit at Newmarket Wedding Fair

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!

Wedding Crazy Golf at the Newmarket Wedding Fair

Mini Golf themed weddings ‘fore-ever love’

In the last few weeks, I have been fortunate enough to have met some lovely excited brides at the start of their wedding planning journey.  For many the fear of getting married in ‘unlucky 13’ is  now over, it looks like 2014 is to be a more ‘lucky’ year!

We were present at the Take My Hand Wedding Fair on 5th January 2014 and indulged in hearing all about the plans of over 100 excited brides to be.  Not having the opportunity to visit wedding fairs myself after getting married in Mauritius over a decade ago, I missed the opportunities to plan the beautiful vintage decor options and fine detail of the day.

There were many exhibitors on the day offering all the areas of wedding planning you could ever imagine.  From cakes through to wedding cars, all important photography through to catering and sweetie carts through to wedding stationery.  Definitely a feast for your eyes.

Along with Bury Bridal Rooms who had a wonderful selection of dresses, Amazing Cakes by Jean who offered an array of wedding cake options and Heathcote and Hare Fine Catering.  We were positioned next to Paul Bailey Photography who offer a bespoke and personalised wedding photography service.

Here is our stand that managed to stop a few interested bridal parties for mini golf at their forthcoming weddings.

With a number of enquiries for mini golf hire at the show we are happy we will be helping brides in 2014 and beyond.  One eager bride to be for 2016 was making early enquiries for her wedding plans – now that is what I called organised!

Many wedding parties are talking of a theme to their wedding and you can see some mini golf wedding ideas in our Pinterest account.

Are you getting married this year?  Fancy a 9 hole golf course for your wedding?  We can deliver a course to you wherever you are.  If you are interested in hiring one of our courses for your wedding, please do get in touch.  We can hire anything from one hole to nine holes.

For those of you reading this that we met at the fair, good luck with the rest of the wedding plans!
