A Day at the Races – Wedding Fair at York Racecourse

Ah a day at the races: the thunder of hooves, the excitement, a glass of fizz in hand – or, in this case, a cracking wedding fair at York Racecourse organised by The UK Wedding Event.

So what did I spy on my wander around over 90 exhibitors? A whole lot of eye candy that’s what!

Above and first images: It was great to see a venue that had plenty of room to showcase a wide range of wedding cars, etc.

So, was York Racecourse wedding fair worth the visit?

It was a real pleasure to meet exhibitors who were not only friendly with their potential customers but with each other – there seemed to be a genuine camaraderie in the air.

The venue offered plenty of room to move around each stand on the ground floor, however the mezzanine area did seem a little dark and crowded.

There was a good diversity of stands with just enough of each type of exhibitor to offer grooms and brides-to-be choice without being overwhelmed.

All-in-all a good day out and I’d definitely pay another visit. Maybe I’ll see you there :)
