Conference Centre provides the perfect location to help couples planning their special day
St Austell Conference Centre provided the perfect location to help dozens of couples planning their special day.
The event showcased everything engaged couples need from cars and flowers to bridal gowns and photographers. The show was spread across all three floors of the Conference Centre as well as spilling outside giving exhibitors and visitors plenty of space set against the inspiring backdrop of St Austell Bay.
Stef Bell, Conference Centre Manager said: “We had a variety of exhibitors spread across all three floors and utilising the outside areas. It was lovely to see several new suppliers and how they used the space – we had a photo booth on one of the landings, a bridal house on another and a even a full wedding ceremony set up in the Beech Suite.
“All of our TV screens and projectors were used by photographers, musicians and entertainment companies to showcase their businesses.”
The car park was transformed into a gallery of beautiful wedding cars and there was even a DJ set up outside the entrance. In previous years there has been a wood-fired pizza oven, a Prosecco van and even a pianist set up too.
Stef added: “It’s great to see the car park being used in a completely different way, and shows how versatile our modern spaces are with the ability to accommodate these events.
“We are excited to see what the Art of Weddings shows bring next year. We can’t wait to welcome exhibitors, brides and grooms back to the Conference Centre.”
Organiser Jules Hayden said: “We ensure that we offer a balanced and varied selection of services along with as much free information as possible in a relaxed, informative and friendly environment.
“We could not have chosen a better venue to host our events. Not only does the Conference Centre offer us a superbly unique and contemporary space in which to showcase local wedding businesses but we feel confident that our visitors also get to experience the benefits of using this facility beyond their visit to The Wedding Show.
“Thank you to Beth, Stef and the team for their professional and very welcoming approach before, during and after each of our events. They have offered Art of Weddings invaluable help and support which goes towards providing our visitors and exhibitors with the very best experience possible at all of our shows”
