Brides The Show, the UK’s leading luxury bridal show returns to The Business Design Centre, Islington from 30th September – 2nd October 2016.
With over 150 luxury suppliers showcasing the very best in bridal, Brides the Show offers three days of unrivalled wedding planning inspiration. Exhibitor categories include stationery, cakes, flowers, venues, travel, photography, designers, jewellery and food & drink. Expect the freshest ideas, the highest quality craftsmanship and the very latest trends.
We are delighted to announce that Goldsmiths and Hayes and Jarvis have returned as headline sponsors for a second year. For a fourth year running, our official make-up sponsor will be Bobbi Brown. Together these premium brands will add innovative features and content, highlighting their creativity, as well as the market-leading position of the Show.
Unique to Brides the Show, our circus inspired catwalk will this year be within its own dedicated gallery theatre space – and will pay homage to the acrobats and performers of the ‘30s travelling circus and the glamour of the era’s style icons. The catwalk is styled by the Brides magazine team and will feature 18 top bridal designers including Suzanne Neville, Halfpenny London, Charlie Brear and Nicki Macfarlane.
Friday’s Preview Night will also present an exclusive one-off showing of our International catwalk featuring seven top bridal designers including Monique Lhuillier, Galia Lahav and Elizabeth Fillmore, as we bring New York Bridal Fashion Week to London. On show for the first time in the UK at Brides the Show, these dresses will be sold exclusively at Browns Bride in Mayfair.
The charity feature this year will be The Great Charity Cake-Scoff! Visitors will be able to buy a whoopee pie (made by Daisy Brydon Creations) for the chance to win one of more than 130 luxury prizes (including wedding dresses, jewellery, make-up and more) worth almost £17,000 in total! All profits from the feature go to Smart Works, a charity that helps women get back into the workplace.
Popular returning features include our crafted selection of hands-on workshops in our Imagination Room, our interactive travel hub Dream Destinations, and bridal beauty from the Bobbi Brown Pro-Team.
