MORE ABOUT BRIDES THE SHOW

Under the bright, barrel-vaulted roof of Islington's Business Design Centre, over 130 exhibitors were on hand to talk to thousands upon thousands of excited brides-to-be who attended.

As always, our daily catwalk shows proved hugely popular. Our 'English Rose' catwalk - adorned in a gorgeous English country garden theme by Palmbrokers and Zita Elze - came to life with the dresses of top bridal designers including David Fielden, Stephanie Allin, Naomi Neoh, Ian Stuart, Halfpenny London, Katya Katya Shehurina, Zaeem Jamal and others.

Bridal experts including top wedding planner Bruce Russell, Prezola founder Dom Bevan and Turquoise Holiday's James Bell answered your every question On The Sofa. Lending his advice to the grooms-to-be was GQ's online fashion editor Nick Carvell, while recent bride and former Vogue beauty editor Jessica Diner also shared her beauty secrets. 

Caterers, florists, wedding venues and couture cake-makers informed and indulged with their dazzling stands, too - flooding the twittersphere with endless pictures of bridal inspiration.

WE HEART HEELS: CHARITY SHOE AUCTION

Our 'Now THAT'S a cake!' gallery attracted huge attention too, as thousands of show-goers pondered the price of the slice for the chance to win their own wedding cake.

We Heart Heels, our charity shoe auction in aid of the British Heart Foundation, got off to a cracking start, while the Hummingbird Bakery cupcakes on the 'Cupcake My Day' stand literally flew off the shelves - along with the luxury prizes that were up for grabs. 

And the Imagination Rooms sessions, as always, were buzzing with creativity and hands-on crafting.
