On Sunday 22nd January 2017 Bucks County Museum in Aylesbury is to host a wedding fair from 11.00am to 3.00pm.
The fair will feature more than 20 exhibitors with products and services showcased including wedding dresses, caterers, florists, cars, make-up and hair, venues, photographers and toast masters. Experienced registrars who can answer any wedding related questions.
The event has been organised by Buckinghamshire County Council’s registration service supported by Amersham based Seasons Catering Co Ltd.
There are more than more than 70 licensed wedding venues in Buckinghamshire. At the fair couples-to-be can check available dates and even book their ceremony.
The registration team will be on hand to provide information on the wedding venues in Buckinghamshire alongside the new celebrant service which allows couples to design every aspect of their big day.
2017 is the third year the County Council has organised a wedding fair however it is the first time it has been held at the museum, which is looking to expand its use as a venue for local organisations and weddings.
The wedding fair is free to attend and couples will also receive a goody bag. It is being held in two of the hireable spaces at the museum and there will also be a marquee in the garden provided free of charge by Marlow Marquees Ltd as well as classic wedding cars on display in the courtyard.
Buckinghamshire County Council Cabinet member for Community Engagement, Margaret Aston, said: ‘Congratulations to any couples who got engaged over Christmas and New Year. They are joining the 1,168 couples who have already registered with the council their intention to marry, so we know there’s going to be a huge interest in this wedding fair.
Planning a wedding can be exciting and stressful. However, the fair is a real one-stop-shop, with all different kinds of suppliers under one roof and lots of items on display to inspire couples.
One of the council’s key aims is to support the local economy so it’s great to hear that the majority of exhibitors on display are local, independent businesses.‘
During the fair the ground floor, café and shop at the museum in Church Street near St Mary’s Church will also be open.
