From quirky wedding ideas to dreamy Disney dresses – The National Wedding Show didn’t fail to impress. We met some lovely suppliers and were inspired by new wedding trends which dominated the catwalk and stands.  Here are our top 5 highlights from the day…

A Catwalk Twist – With front row seats, we were quickly captivated by the stunning dresses which glided down the catwalk.  Dresses with pockets were a recurrent theme, alongside gorgeous pastel shades, and decadent backless designs.

The “Naked Cake”

Fitting well with next season’s relaxed country style for weddings, “Naked Cakes” were a huge trend at this season’s National Wedding Shows. Composed of layered madeira sponge and buttercream, decorated with fresh berries or flowers and dusted with sugar – this style is not only visually stunning but unique from the “traditional” wedding cake.

Some great ideas from the National Wedding Show Olympia

Over the three days at the National Wedding Show every 10 – 15 minutes you could hear a group of men burst into song. These were the Singing Waiters!

Most of them are classically trained, so not only did they have great voices but they could perform a wide range of music from classical to rock.
Music aside the guys had a huge amount of charisma and certainly knew how to pull in a crowd and perform.
So if you are looking for different ideas to surprise your guests or your partner at your Wedding Reception, what a great idea!

We saw a lot of  fantastic businesses at the show over the weekend, but what a great idea ‘The Day That‘ is.
Everyday since Midsummer’s day in 2005, Chris and Gavan have taken a selection of amazing photographs of the dawn rising over the Cornish coastline.

The National Wedding Show at Olympia

Today marks the start of the three day National Wedding Show in London, and Nicky, John and Emily are there to check out what is happening on the catwalk and to see the latest trends on the trade stands.

The first fashion show of the day got off to a good start with every seat taken and some traditional designs from Ian Stuart. The general feel is for lots of lace and there is still a lot of vintage around.
