The National Wedding Show is known for being the UK's biggest wedding show, but this Autumn it was better than ever. Two lucky couples won a competition to have their entire wedding planned for them by the fabulously talented team at the NWS, winning everything from the rings, dress, cake and flowers to the honeymoon courtesy of Beachcomber. Of course Brides was at the first wedding at the London exhibition in Earls Court to find out what it was like to have your wedding blessing live on a catwalk in front of thousands of people.
The bride and groom were positively beaming as they stood under the wonderfully styled gazebo by Jackie and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen exclusively for Beachcomber Resorts. When asked how they had felt on that morning the bride Hayley Oakley said; "It's been the most wonderful day of my life. I was so excited when I woke up but also a little nervous about being on stage in front of so many people!" The groom Garry Drew added "I just want it all to slow down, the whole day has been so wonderful and I don't want it to be over," which is no surprise really as the couple had been styled by Caryn Franklin and her team of celebrity experts at the National Wedding Show and treated like VIPs for the whole day!
Once the day was over however they had a wonderful honeymoon to look forward to; Beachcomber Resorts are sending them to Mauritius by Air Mauritius where they'll stay at the stunning Le Victoria Hotel for seven nights.
"I can't describe how wonderful the entire team at the National Wedding Show have been" Hayley said "It's certainly a wedding show I'll never forget!"
