Brides the Show, the UK’s most sophisticated, luxury bridal show is back! The show returns between 3rd and 5th October 2014, and is being held for the first time at The Business Design Centre, Islington, London.

The event treats visitors to an experience like no other: featuring over 130 of the most prestigious bridal and lifestyle brands, from designers and florists, to photographers and venues; the industry’s biggest names will be on hand to help, advise and inspire.

Visitors will also be treated to a series of stunning live catwalk shows, showcasing the latest collections from some of the best UK and international designers, including Ian Stuart, Stephanie Allin, Naomi Neoh and Kate Halfpenny.

Brides the Show has everything discerning brides-to-be and their bridal parties could hope for to make their big day truly unforgettable, and we have a pair of ‘Gold Tickets’ to give away.

This year, brides-to-be can get even closer to the action with a Gold Catwalk ticket. This VIP experience will enable ticket-holders fast-track entry, to pre-book their seats in the first front two rows, a complimentary glass of champagne and luxury gift bags.
