GREAT WESTERN - The Seppelt Wedding Expo has been the biggest and most successful yet with more than 400 people through the door, all enjoying the ambience and the displays.
Guests enjoyed wandering through the venue and browsing at all the displays.
Organiser Alli Fitzpatrick said the standard of displays from all exhibitors was high and they received a lot of positive feedback.
"It was exciting to see how much the businesses had grown. There was live music in all areas inside which made it enjoyable for guests while wandering around," Ms Fitzpatrick said.
"The fashion parade proved very popular, this time taking place in our main function area, the 1892 Cellar. The stage and lighting effects were a fantastic edition. The parade featured bridal gowns, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses and for the first time mother of the bride outfits. There were also two page boys who showed off two different suits. Two male models each displayed several different suits.
"Guests had a fun time on the complimentary tour of the drives and were blown away to see an underground dining experience on show in the Brandy Nook."
Many guests took advantage of the fine day to enjoy a woodfired pizza with a glass of wine or Seppelt Drumborg Ale and live music outside.
Ms Fitzpatrick said a large majority of guests headed to the Cellar Door afterwards for further wine tastings and coffee, which was a great way to finish off the day.
"We were thrilled with the outcome and after speaking to some of the exhibitors they were all thrilled with the amount of bookings and enquiries they received on the day," she said.
"Brides commented to me throughout the day as to how helpful this event is to them. It is also a great opportunity for businesses to gain a huge amount of exposure and meet other businesses in the same field."
