A lot of leaflets given out. A lot of interest from potential customers. Working on 4 quotes now and still receiving enquiries by email

We had a fantastic day at Newcastle Racecourse, we handed out a lot of flyers and spoke to a lot of enthusiastic Brides and Grooms to be. The flow of customers was constant which was great. Lee -VW Rosie Camper Van Wedding Photo Booth- External Exhibitor Newcastle Racecourse Oct 2017

This was my first wedding fair and I’ve been very happy with the full email inbox during the following week from the event where I have already signed up 3 clients for future weddings. More than paid for itself. Andy Przybla Disco Couture Oct 2017 Newcastle Racecourse Wedding Show- Gosforth Park Suite

As an exhibitor, we found the recent fair had a fantastic atmosphere without feeling overcrowded or rushed. 
We were able to enjoy some quality time discussing our services and enjoyed a continuous flow of prospective customers from start to finish. 
With 2 staff running our exhibition, we were continuously talking to new customers back to backWe found approximately 60% of people had set their date and chosen their venue but hadn’t arranged anything else. 

30% hadn’t yet set their date or chosen their venue. 
10% were in the late stages of planning their wedding and were looking for some final ideas/ finishing touches.

Very steady flow of Brides throughout the day. Very well organised and a great variety of exhibitors. Brides are always looking for something different, and this Fair did have that! Very positive response from the Bride and Grooms, looking forward to the next one! :)  Julie -AJ Bridalwear Newcastle Racecourse Oct 2017 Event

What a fantastic event for meeting couples interested in my service. I received many compliments on the Venue styling and several positive enquiries leading to bookings. Once again a great event organised by Peter and the team.

Really enjoyed doing Newcastle Racecourse Wedding Fair it’s the best fair i’ve done, always a great turn out of brides and grooms. Very busy all day with enquiries,got several bookings on the day and lots of leads for the future. If you’re not able to do a lot of fairs you must include this one in your budget I found it great value, was able to give out a lot of leaflets and have had a great deal of interest in return. Highly Recommended

I can honestly say I’ve never given out so many leaflets or flyers at any similar fair, ever! There was a huge amount of visitors in the early stages of booking their Weddings, lots of quality exhibitors & seamless, smooth running of the event due to flawless organisation! A must see fair – we can’t wait until the next one! See you thereƒ.

Paul –  Goof Booth

We attended the Wedding & Venues Show at Newcastle Racecourse on Sun 31st august. there were a lot of people there and the response we had was great, we picked up lots of great leads. Including a few bookings. the fair itself was very good there were lots of different exhibitors, showing casing everything would need to organise your wedding.

Thistle Hotel Newcastle

I had 5 enquiries regarding wedding suit hire on the Monday after the fair.Chris Hayward – Hayward Menswear

Happy to do so, although it’s a bit early yet to give a full outcome. However…

“The quantity and quality of enquiries at this event were of a very high standard. Within days, these have already led many potential clients to arrange a follow-up meeting on our premises, for a more detailed quote. Judging from numbers so far, we anticipate a high rate of conversion into confirmed bookings. We definitely plan to attend this event again.”

Terri Harper Events Coordinator The Biscuit Factory

Exhibiting at the Wedding Fair was a very positive experience for me, within a week I had my first order of 120 crackers, and another ongoing at the moment. Would definitely recommend attending either as an exhibitor or a visitor.

Linda  -Just Crackers www.just-crackers.com

We had a wonderful day at Newcastle Racecourse Wedding Show organised through weddingfairs north east. we had an excellent space to exhibit and were in a great position to attract passing brides to be and couples preparing for their big day. it is a great place to showcase your products/services and give couples ideas for their upcoming weddings.
We had good interest on the day with numerous cards & leaflets taken, and many people leaving their email details in order for us to contact them with full information of what we have to offer.

.Anna Scott Mini Marquees

Excellent day at the Wedding Fayre on 31 August at Newcastle Racecourse. It is a great opportunity to gain exposure of our venue to wide audience.

Lesley Bollado  Holiday Inn Jesmond

We had an excellent event, improving on the first racecourse fayre we did earlier in 2014. Good quality brides on 31/8/14. Not many couples just “shopping” which is good.
Plenty of leaflets and literature given out. We had 2 couples enquire a few hours later on the Sunday night and book within first 3 days. We have 2 other consultations booked in for later this week and another 2 enquiries coming back to me with a date for consultations. All within first 4 days. I’m sure there will be more to come. There always is. We managed to speak to some lovely couples who were genuinely interested. Excellent fayre and looking great so far in terms of response.

The event was very well organised and we are expecting a significant amount of orders due to the amount of people who attended, an excellent experience all round…thanks

Helen & Ian – Vanilla Teas

Good organisation, excellent advertising, excellent footfall and overall a positive experience.

Alison & Julie AJ Bridalwear

Really happy with my first wedding fair. Gave out lots of flyers and have noticed an increase in web traffic since the fair with lots of returning hits which will hopefully result in a booking or 2!

Pam Hordon Photography

We had a really good day. We took loads of enquiries from potential brides and were surprised that the distance/location of our venue didn’t put them off. We thought the quality of the clients was great in that there were lots of bookers not just lookers. We handed our all the marketing materials we took with us which is unusual we normally go home with loads. Great show all round!

If you are a venue looking to be part of the next Wedding and Venue Show, please stay away because we need to beat our extremely impressive target from last time, 10 confirmed weddings! Help us make it 11.
Christopher Davidge, Grand Hotel (Tynemouth).

This was the first wedding showcase we have done outside of our venue Wallsend Hall. We have had 3 couples book their wedding with us and a further 2 possible bookings. It was also good to be out of our enviroment and hearing from people that they had heard of us, we had so much possitive feed back which is encouraging. We think it has been a good way to generate business and will be using this service again
Peter & Rosie, Wallsend Hall

Loved the venue,enjoyed meeting all the other exhibitors and have had wonderful response as a result of being there, two weddings booked already.
Katherine, Clennel Hall,Northumberland

Yes had a great day, with lots of bookings!
Eleanor Pringle Photography

Great turn out, good quality leads , relaxed and friendly environment , well organised. What more do you want form a wedding fair as an exhibitor?
John Dixon, Not Just Travel Northeast

As I said in my text I was delighted with the whole show from arrival to departure everything was done to the highest degree and would recommend to anyone in the industry to book and to brides to visit the wide range of very good quality exhibitors.
Kathryn Russell Bridalwear

I thought that Sundays show at Newcastle Racecourse was an excellent show as it attracted lots of couples. This is the busiest show iv exhibited at since i started with Smooch. Its also the show where i got the msot leads for potential customers!Sophie Annis -Smooch Wedding Rings Newcastle
Sophie Annis, Smooch Wedding Rings Newcastle

We always hold our own in house wedding fayres, and this was the first time we had exhibited at an outside venue. We handed out more than 100 wedding brochures on the day, and took a number of email addresses with regard to information for 2015.Also very pleased to raise the awareness of our venue to a lot of the attendees who weren’t aware of the hotel’s location.Very well organised on such short notice. Well done
Lesley Bollado-Holiday Inn Jesmond

Thanks for another great wedding showcase Peter – it’s always a pleasure to work with you and exhibit at your events which are always very well attended.

As a new business I thoroughly enjoyed this as a first show with excited visitors planning their event and great exhibitors to network with. Great day as a launch pad for Ambience Venue Styling (Newcastle)with a number of enquiries from some lovely couples! Thank you to Peter and his Team.
Sue Jones Ambience Venue Styling

We are very impressed with the standard of this exhibition, showcasing some of the finest wedding suppliers in the industry. It was a well attended event and thank you so much for your support.

        Durham Wedding Show

 

Within a month of exhibiting at the Durham Wedding Show at Emirates Chester le St  in January 2015 I had received ELEVEN Wedding bookings as a direct result of exhibiting at the event.  Amazing. Never been known ! Gemma Smith GS Studio Photography

I found the wedding fayre was very well organised, Peter very friendly and helpful on the day of setting up. The event was well publicised, and consequently had fantastic attendance! We have already had a number of orders from it and its only Wednesday!
Favour-it-ism (Chair Covers and Bespoke Favours)

Overall a great day, gave out approx 150 brochures and 30-40quotes. A lot of interest and found it to be a very friendly and positive atmosphere.
BMB Clothing

The Durham Wedding Show is well worth a visit. Usually high attendance at this venue with a high percentage of brides looking to book on the day. A very good wedding fayre.

First class footfall, excellent quality of prospects who have done their research and come to confirm their shortlist before booking.Good quality venues with excellent organisation and communication by Peter.

Nigel, Nigel Playle Photography

We had a great day at the Durham Wedding Show, there was plenty of Brides and good selection of stalls to see. We had lots of interest at our own stall with Brides coming to the show from all over the region.Overall we had a good response from the show and thought it was a success!
Robin, 83 Photography

… the event is organised very well. The 2 girls on the door were very helpful and Peter is a nice guy to deal with. It takes 6 months to a year to be able to count the amount of bookings taken from the wedding fair itself therefore judging how cost effective / successful the fairs are. All in all, I am still at the experimental stage with wedding fairs. I would like to exhibit at least once or twice a year at the Wedding Pages Fairs.
Johnny Regan, The Picture Book Studio

We exhibited at the Durham Wedding Show for the first time. Unsure what to expect we went ahead and set up as normal. We were pleased with amount of visitors who attended the fayre as well as the quality of the visitor. We got to spend a lot of time speak with clients and we’ll be hoping to exhibit again in the future.
Chris, Chocolate Chip Photography

I had a great day exhibiting at the Durham Wedding Show for the first time, at the Emirates Ground at Chester-Le-Street.
It was lovely to meet brides and grooms to discuss their Wedding and Honeymoon plans and as a new homeworker for Designer Travel it was great to promote awareness of myself and the Company.
Alison Todd, Designer Travel

We have worked with Wedding Pages since out company began 7 years ago and always find their events very well attended. The events are promoted & advertised well and on the day the management of the events is second to none. We found the DUrham Wedding Show excellent this year.There where lots of couples attending and as well as taking bookings on the day our phone has not stopped since. Well done, yet again, to the Wedding Pages Team.
Wendy, By Wendy Statonery

The Durham Wedding Show was a well attended and organised show. A lot of promotion took place prior to the event including interactive social media with exhibitors. We met many new Brides and Grooms who were at the early stages of their wedding planning so it’s a perfect event for every wedding supplier. An excellent range of suppliers exhibited and we didn’t feel there was an overload of any specific type which is very refreshing!! We’ve tried many wedding fayres in the Durham area, and this is definitely one of the best attended by far – Simplicity Weddings & Simply Suits will be back next time!!
Gemma, Simplicity Bridalwear

When Peter said this event would be very well attended I was sceptical, especially when the weather was so miserable!But I was very pleasantly surprised as from the moment the doors opened it was VERY busy. We had a lot of genuine interest and made a number of appointments on the day, with more queries coming in on the Monday after.All in all a very successful event and I look forward to attending again in the future.
Barbara, Little B Stationery

Even poor weather could not stop plenty of visitors attending the event such is its reputation. Good quality leads aplenty , great atmosphere and a pleasure to exhibit.
John Dixon, Not Just Travel Northeast

An excellent show with good facilities for both visitors and exhibitors. Plenty of space to move around and chat to people without feeling crowded. Parking was great and the show was very easy to get to.
Kenn Reay Photography, Newcastle upon Tyne

Very well organised, lots of publicity before hand, ran very well.
Julie, AJ Bridal Wear

The Durham Wedding Show generated future clients for Candy Castle Alnwick, delivering and fulfilling our expectations, thank you Peter.
Victoria Boe, Candy Castle Alnwick

I always do this wedding fair. The people exhibiting are always great fun. The brides-to-be are serious and are looking for help and advice. Great Fair.
Jo, Y.A.P Bridal Newcastle

A very nice venue, well organised, great weather and a great turn out. Thank you.
John , Millennium Limos, Middlesbrough

A well organised and well attended event in a stunning venue.

Thanks again, got some business from this – I will be back!
Chris Cross, Magician

I was not sure what to expect but once the public started to walk around it got very busy and the time flew in no time, very busy and very good.
Chris, Jeff Banks Menswear, Dalton Park

           

Phenomenal! The first Wedding Show we have exhibited at with you and we’ve sold loads of our products today, we don’t usually sell many at previous events we have been to
Susan of Perfect Occasion, County Durham.

Thanks for a great day on Sunday it was the most hectic wedding fayre we have been to for a long time. We took four bookings on the day which we have never done before! We can’t wait for the next one.
Keith Regan, Concept Photography, Whitley Bay.

A great wedding show @ Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground in September. The event was well organised with plenty of room for us to showcase our latest flower designs. The number of Brides attending exceeded our expectations and we are looking forward to the next show.

Great North Wedding Show

Peter is a fantastic organiser, the events are always very well publicised, very well attended and very well organised from an exhibitor’s point-of view.
Ideal Photos, County Durham.

Very good venue, generates plenty of interest from prospective brides. Well organised and run. Very busy and much interest shown about the wedding cars we provide and the service we give. Well worth attending this event.
Campbell Wedding Cars, South Shields.

This event was busy all day, and I met new markets who I would never have reached using my existing marketing channels.
Bowes Museum, County Durham

This was a very good event, with a great number of brides attending. We were very pleased with the response to our dresses and would certainly be interested in attending this event again.
Wedding Dress Company, Corbridge, Northumberland.

Always professionally organised and managed and excellent attendance figures of the right quality potential customers. Great to see so many regular suppliers attending too.
Mia Sposa, Newcastle upon Tyne.

We have now attended this event for about 4 years and it is always our best wedding fayre of the season. The organisation & promoting of the event are excellent ad result in a high number of quality clients attending. I always recommend this event to other companies & tell them that if they only do one wedding show a year it has to be The Great North Wedding Show.
By Wendy, Bedlington, Northumberland.

An excellent show. Well organised. Highly recommended to both exhibitors and couples.

Novotel Wedding Fair

As a relatively new company to the Wedding trade we have attended many wedding fairs over the last 24 months and have found Peter’s (Wedding Fairs              North East) to be  the most  successful, enjoyable and well organised. But more importantly having reviewed our wedding event records  Peter’s (WFNE)              have been by far the best value for money when comparing event cost against value of bookings received and we look forward to many more successful                  WFNE hostedevents in the future” Helen @ Vanilla Teas

Great location, with high footfall, well organised and a good range of exhibitors on the day
Sandra, Essential Thyme, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Best investment I’ve ever made! Peter has worked very hard to make the Novotel wedding fayre a very busy and successful event, and I am more then happy with the amount of potential clients that I met at the event, and have taken 4 new bookings so far. Very impressed.
Philip Ryott Photography, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Had a really good day, plenty of leads and two bookings, there was plenty of potential brides looking for my service.
Chic Wedding Photography, Middlesbrough.

Thank you for organising this wedding fair at the Novotel. First time we have exhibited our doves at this location. It was very well attended and generated a fair amount business for us. There were some exhibits we haven’t seen before. Its always good to see new products and services.
White Heart Doves, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne.
