On Sunday 3rd November, The Budget Bride Company and a massive array of gorgeous wedding suppliers landed at The Eden Centre in Kettering, Northants.
The Eden Centre is a real hidden treasure in Kettering. The unassuming front doors on Montagu Street open up into a grand art deco styled venue which, at one point in it’s history, used to be a theatre. Many of the original features remain, with gorgeous feature ceilings and galleried landings.

The size and feel of The Eden Centre, along with its excellent value wedding reception packages, made it a natural choice for us to choose as a Budget Bride Live Wedding Fair venue. The incredibly helpful and friendly venue team, headed up by Laurie, can’t do enough to make you feel welcome, which made all the difference for our last wedding fair of 2013!
Once all of the suppliers had set up their exhibition spaces, the doors opened to the public at 3pm. Guests were greeted by the sight of two super long limousines from LJ Limo’s parked outside the venue, these cars are definitely crowd pleasers!
Once inside the venue, brides to be were greeted with suppliers to help them with every area of their wedding planning – from flowers and photography through to DJ’s and brooch bouquets. We pick suppliers for our Budget Bride Live Wedding Fairs based on quality and price, so we were very proud to show off the amount of talent at this event!
Brides were given goody bags full of treats and money off vouchers from Confetti.com, Flowers and Ribbons and Gohen.com and were also entered into a prize draw for a Bridal Pamper Hamper which contained loads of goodies for a bridal pamper night in along with vouchers for a photo shoot with James Thorpe Photography and a generous voucher from Verona Couture Well done to bride to be Emily for scooping this prize!!
We held a Fashion Show halfway through the event which featured Elegantly Hitched with an amazing seven models! The ladies looked beautiful, showing off wedding dresses all priced below £700.
Fairytales also featured in the Fashion Show, modelling their lovely bridesmaid dresses.
It was a fantastic day and was lovely to see so many of you brides to be, wanting to bring your wedding in on budget 🙂 We are now planning our 2014 Budget Bride Live Wedding Events – you can pre-register for your place now over on our Wedding Fairs page here.
