Just been exhibiting at the Yorkshire Spring Brides Wedding Fair at the Pavilions Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate. Day 1 of a 2 day exhibition. It has been very good considering the current recession. A good steady flow of people passed my stand with quite a number apparently seriously interested in my services. I never really expect to take bookings at a wedding fair especially when there are a dozen or so other photographers exhibiting. For the most part people will go away and review the literature they have received, and look at websites before arranging to come and see photographers to spend a bit more time looking at their work. The wedding fair is probably one of the largest in the North of England with another two day fair planned for early October. The quality of services exhibiting is of the highest standard with approximately 150 exhibitors. You can therefore expect to find what you are looking for when planning a wedding.
One point of interest that I noticed is that quite a lot of people have not as yet arranged their wedding date, so were simply gathering information before they really get in to planning their wedding day. There are of course venues exhibiting so you can potentially find the venue of your dreams to get married at here also.
Well tomorrow is set to be busier with most people attending on the Sunday, and with the nice weather predicted for tomorrow it could well be a busy day. If you are planning a wedding then this is one of the fairs to attend for inspiration, ideas and to find the services you require for your big day.
