So a bit more about the show and why you may want to pop along and have a look for yourself.

For Spring 2012 the National Wedding Show has been given a makeover and unveils a fresh new look. In keeping with the growing vintage trend within the industry a new area is to be launched within the show compromising a collection of authentic vintage and vintage inspired suppliers covering every aspect of weddings from fashion and accessories to stationery and venue styling. This will culminate in a central vintage café area where visitors can relax with a quintessentially British cup of tea and a delicious array of cakes.

The area will feature a handpicked selection of vintage and vintage-inspired designers and brands, as well as a classic English tearoom-style café for refreshments!’
