1 weekend in March saw 5,000 guests drink over 2,000 glasses of champagne, eat 600 pieces of cake, and tweet 812 times in order to win £25,000 of luxury prizes.

Brides-to-be could hand-pick accessories, flowers, stationery, cakes, shoes and (of course) the all-important dress from 132 luxury exhibitors.

A VERY SPECIAL GIFT FOR YOU...

3,000 cherry blossom branches and 54 trees (which took event dressers Palmbrokes 2 weeks to set up!) were used to create 1 magical space - constructed in 21 hours by more than 250 builders.

The winner of the Editor's Gold Design Award went to florist Mary Jane Vaughan, who used more than 1,000 fresh succulents on her breathtaking display (pictured).

So, if you missed the show, you missed a lot! But don't worry, we're busy planning the next one…
