If you're planning a wedding in the UK with a traditional Afro-Caribbean theme, put a big gold star on Saturday May 22 in your diary now.

The African & Caribbean Wedding Show and Bridal Catwalk, hosted by SRS Events, is taking place at the Lancashire Cricket Club in Manchester and we're seriously impressed by the line-up. Showcasing their bridal buys will be big names such as House of Fraser, Debenhams, Moss Bros and Hilton Hotel group, plus smaller niche brands and local businesses specialising in Afro-Caribbean wedding food, cakes, steel band music, beauty, gospel choirs, bridal-wear and jewellery. Even if you're right at the start of your planning, you'll find great venue companies and caterers, plus all the basic essentials such as transport, entertainment, photography and videography.
There's lots to take part in too: catch a front-row seat at the bridal catwalk show, steal ideas from the hairstyle demonstrations, enter competitions, watch traditional African dancing and taste some incredible canapés, all while listening to local live music.
