Museum to host Wedding Fair

Bucks County Museum in Aylesbury is hosting a wedding fair on Sunday, January 22.

It will feature more than 20 exhibitors, with products and services including wedding dresses, caterers, florists, cars, make-up and hair, venues, photographers, toast masters and experienced registrars who can answer any questions relating to your wedding.

The event, from 11am to 3pm, has been organised by Buckinghamshire County Council’s registration service, supported by Seasons Catering Co Ltd based in Amersham.

The registration team will be on hand to provide information on more than 70 licensed wedding venues in the county, alongside its new celebrant service which allows couples to design every aspect of their big day. Couples -to-be can check available dates and even book their ceremony at the fair.

This is the third year the County Council has organised a wedding fair. It is the first time it has been held at the museum, which is looking to expand its use as a venue for local organisations and weddings.

The wedding fair is free to attend and couples will also receive a goody bag. It is being held in two of the hireable spaces at the museum, and there will also be a marquee in the garden provided free of charge by Marlow Marquees Ltd as well as classic wedding cars on display in the courtyard.

Cabinet member for Community Engagement, Margaret Aston, said: “Congratulations to any couples who got engaged over Christmas and New Year. They are joining the 1,168 couples who have already registered with the council their intention to marry, so we know there’s going to be a huge interest in this wedding fair.

“Planning a wedding can be exciting and stressful. However, the fair is a real one-stop-shop, with all different kinds of suppliers under one roof and lots of items on display to inspire couples.

“One of the council’s key aims is to support the local economy so it’s great to hear that the majority of exhibitors on display are local, independent businesses.”

The ground floor, café and shop at the museum, in Church Street near St Mary’s Church, will be open during the fair.
