Exhibitors Feedback from The Athenaeum Wedding Spectacular, Bury St. Edmunds - November 2015


Warpaint said


The Fayre proved very fruitful for business. Brides were genuinely interested and very much quality over quantity.  The event was advertised well beforehand and well organised, as ever, on the day.  Thanks.


A Little Hire said


A well organised show and relaxed environment and very much appreciated the space I was allocated.  Feeling very positive from the feedback I received.



Captured Moments Photography said


Great venue, location and easy unloading and great to have the additional space.  Had very positive conversations with interested brides so hoping these prove fruitful.

Bride of Beauty said


Thoroughly enjoyed the day and my first showing on the catwalk went really well.  Communication was good to the build-up of the event. Many thanks Stephanie - marketing was great!


Robin Smith Photography said


Very impressed with the organisation and a spectacular venue.  It was great to spend time with potential clients who showed a good level of interest - time will tell if any business will develop from the day.  Overall, very enjoyable and other exhibitors were very friendly and helpful.  Thanks.  Robin

Another good day at this beautiful venue with some very positive feedback from the couples we met.

Another excellent day with The Wedding Guide at The Athenaeum in Bury St. Edmunds.  Lots of truly interested, good quality brides who were looking to book rather than "gather paper".  Great Fashion Show with stunning dresses which I got to photograph!

Cakephoria said


"Great Day!.  We found the quality of visitors/enquiries coming to our stand excellent, really positive feedback and we look forward to exhibiting here again."



Stour Image Studios said


"Excellent!  The footfall was large enough to allow me to engage with multiple people without missing too many brides and grooms.  Even better, there have been multiple expressions of interest from the people I spoke to.  Many thanks."


Stephen Richardson Wedding Photography said

The Bridal Lounge said


"Professionally organised show with brides interested in wedding related products and services.  Beautiful venue and the catwalk show was a Big Hit with Brides-To-Be with many coming to look at dresses and try them on after the Fashion Show .  All in all, a lovely day."


Polka Dot Chair Cover Hire said


"I found staff very helpful from the moment I arrived.  Stephanie was friendly and helpful when I booked my stand.  The venue itself is the perfect setting for a Wedding Spectacular and I was very happy to exhibit my various wedding services in the front foyer."



Ayshea Goldberg Photography said


"I love the venue and amount of space I was given.  i could really spread out of products well.  The morning was great with a steady stream of brides showing interest in my services but not too busy that I couldn't keep up with the footfall, but busy enough to keep me chatting the whole time.  After the fashion shows it went quieter which was a shame but I'm hoping that the morning will lead to some contracts for my photography services."



Beaufort Lane said


"Received a lot of advice and support both from Stephanie and the other vendors at one of our very first wedding fairs.  Positioning of our stand was great and refreshment facilities good."




Exhibitors Feedback from Athenaeum Wedding Fair, Bury St Edmunds - February 2013


Jane from Studio Jane said

“The event at The Athenaeum was brilliant. The atmosphere was very friendly and very professional. I cannot believe the response I got from the potential clientele; my business is going to be very busy from this event alone. The show, alongside the website, was worth every penny. I will be attending more Wedding Spectaculars put on by The Wedding Guide in the near future. I highly recommend this company to anyone wishing to expand their business in the bridal industry.”


Cheryl/Charlotte/Mary from Sodexo Prestige said

“Great show by The Wedding Guide!. A wonderful atmosphere with a real buzz. Lots of exhibitors from all industries and a flow of bride and grooms to be. Had a really good day. Thank you.”


Stephen Hullyer, Wedding Speech Writer & MC said

“I found it a great learning curve and a terrific experience. I managed to make a lot of contacts, which I hope will pay dividends. I also made some good professional contacts and hopefully vice versa. Thanks for the opportunity.”


Sophie Kim Floral Designer said

“Fabulous venue. Very accommodating. Stephanie had everything so well organised. I would really recommend this show. Visiting couples all very friendly with positive feedback.”


Marcello Pozzetti Photographer said

“Today was an amazing day as far as visitors and interested couples. I would be very surprised if bookings do not materialise after today. The venue is glorious and the organisation spot on!”


Thurlow Champness, Jewellers said

“A very well organised event and beautiful venue.”


The Function Suite at Bury St. Edmunds said

“Friendly atmosphere at the show. We made some good contacts and have had some interest in our venue. Stephanie has been particularly helpful with good advice for promoting our business.”


Stour Image Studios Ltd said

“Overall a positive experience and a good opportunity to meet professionals from other service groups. The other exhibitors were very friendly, allowing easy networking. The couples/families that attended were keen and interested in our services. Several will hopefully make bookings following very positive feedback.”
