This weekend saw me very busy firstly setting up a stand at Sandburn Hall wedding fair on Saturday evening, and then setting up and manning a stand at the Allerton Castle Wedding Experience. Allerton Castle wedding fairs are always really nice, classy fairs, with excellent quality exhibitors. The location sets the scene for a really high class fair where couples can gain a lot of information in preparation for their wedding. In contrast to some wedding fairs there was a nice steady flow of people through the doors, and although numbers were slightly down on past fairs, I never really felt I was standing about waiting for a long time. Most couples were planning on having their wedding in 2010, 2011, with some as far away as 2012. Although I did not take any bookings on the day, and never really expect to, I usually receive several enquiries which hopefully lead to bookings.
Claudie, Sophie and their team from Dine Services, once again, did a great job in the planning and organising of this fair, and couples who attended, I believe, got a lot out of the day. The weather certainly helped to show off Allerton Castle in its best light, and with several photographers who did not attend the fair this time I think it will prove to be very beneficial for me personally.
I must also thank Annita and my mum for manning the Sandburn Hall stand for me, which I very much appreciated. I have written a separate article review of the Sandburn Hall wedding fair.
