Exhibitor Testimonials

The comments from our exhibitors speak volumes and it’s clear to see why so many suppliers return to our Fairs each time.
“After doing many North West shows at EventCity, Manchester we decided to attend the recent show at London ExCeL. The look and feel of the show was stunning with such a vast range of different suppliers for the wedding industry, and you could book your big wedding day from the vast array of companies showing. Over the two days, we met over 600 mothers of the bride and groom and have since had some great sales, so we will definitely be attending both the spring and autumn shows in both London and Manchester!” Nigel Rayment Boutique
“Following four years of exhibiting with Mercury Events we are now receiving a constant return on investment. It was initially a difficult choice to invest so heavily but it is now paying dividends. Thanks to a very professional team, Abbey House look forward to many more years at Event City.” Abbey House Hotel
“I have been in the wedding business for over 30 years and have become so fed up of the same old boring and waste of time wedding shows. Then I tried the Bluewater Wedding fair which was amazing and so professional it puts everyone else to shame. The many bookings I received were mostly for my top priced package. Thanks Mercury, you are truly the leaders in the wedding exhibition field!” Nigel Barrett Photography
“The best wedding event in the area, serious brides that come from miles around!” Bride By Swarbricks

The bright pink carpets and show layout create impact and excitement to any couple looking to get married in the near future.” Mushy Moo Wedding & Event Stationery
“Having just booked to exhibit again, the North West Wedding Fair is extremely well organised and run. There is consistently a superb foot fall of brides / grooms over the weekend and we view this as one of our most important marketing tools, and are looking forward to the next show.” The Belle Epoque
“An exciting show with good visitor numbers and a great venue. The organisers care about your business and are careful to limit category numbers, so exhibitors get a great rate of return.” Travel Designers
“A lovely looking show with a good exhibitor mix and high calibre visitor profile. Under the management of Mercury Events the show continues to grow from strength to strength and in our opinion has the potential to become the ‘must attend event’ for any wedding business or bride in the South East.” Chic Weddings
“The last show just gone was amazing...organisation and advertising was great. And the support we received as exhibitors was good too...The fact that you had geared people to buy at the show was great and really really worked! Don’t change a thing it all worked brilliantly.” Michael Frank Jewellers

“After the first day of this show I knew I would be booking again. The fantastic venue, high quality suppliers and constant stream of eager brides made this by far the best fair ‘ndr’ have exhibited at. Can't wait till the next one!” NDR Productions
“The Bluewater wedding show was a great weekend for us. Not only did we have a great experience meeting more happy couples than we have at any other wedding show before, but the admin team leading up to the event were knowledgeable, helpful and very patient. We were so impressed with the day that we booked for the next three fairs.” Jukebox Function Band

“We were extremely busy the whole time, something that we did not expect. The interest show in South Africa as a Wedding destination caught all by surprise, so much show that we ran out of product on Sunday just before 13h00. Our representative in London booked 3 destination weddings at the show and other 2 since then. Thank you for an amazing show and looking forward to seeing you in 2015.” South African Wedding Album
“It was my first time exhibiting at a wedding fair and it was nothing short of excellent! The organisers are conscientious not to take on too many of the same kind of exhibitor which is great for us, but also great for the thousands of brides attending! I will definitely be back in 2015!” Stacey Sings

Great Footfall, the best response ever from a Wedding event. Big thank you to the Mercury Events team. Job well done!!” Duane Thornborough, County Brides Magazine
“We have exhibited at Wedding Shows at large venues for over 15 years. As first time exhibitors with North West Wedding Fairs (Mercury Events) we were extremely impressed with the organisation, layout, communication and the amount of lovely people we met. A truly professional team and set up.” Stefans Jewellers
“This is the third time House of Fraser has exhibited at this show, and each time it just gets better. The quantity and quality of the people we spoke to will undoubtedly result in building our future business. My team love doing this show and everybody I speak to from Mercury Events are ultimate professionals.” Bride by Swarbricks
“‘We were very happy with The North West Wedding Fair, I was impressed with the pre-show marketing and set up, and found the staff at Mercury Events very easy to work with. For the 3 days of the show we took lots of orders and we also have had customers calling for appointments and enquiries. I was very happy with my stand size and there was a lovely feel to the show with the mix of exhibitors. Customers coming into my shop afterwards were full of praise for the show, saying that they loved the upmarket feel of it.” Rocks for Frocks
“ As a company that regularly does wedding fairs throughout the region I can honestly say that the NW Wedding Fair recently organised by Mercury Events was, by a country mile, the best show I have ever done. The organisation of the show was second to none. The layout was very well thought out and allowed traffic to flow down all the aisles so each stand was visited. The staff were always on hand for any questions I had over the weekend. The marketing leading up to the show itself was most definitely the best I have ever seen which resulted in high visitor numbers attending on all days. Not only did they get the numbers they got the right kind of people which is always difficult. I would not hesitate in attending another Mercury Events show in the future. Job well done.” Unforgettable Memories
“It is always a pleasure working with the Mercury Events team. For them it's not just about selling stand space- they genuinely care about their exhibitors and want them to do great business at their shows. They needn't worry though- we always have a successful time! This is largely due to the organisation and marketing undertaken by Mercury in the run up to the show, ensuring that it is well attended with good quality visitors, who not only have a fantastic day out but also spend money! We take orders on the day as well as taking strong leads for future sales- oh, and it's not just the visitors who have a good time!” Rachel Simpson Shoes
“We had a truly enjoyable time at the show. It was extremely well organised and had such a fantastic atmosphere all weekend. We have since received a lot of interest and we are so pleased we took part.” The Wedding Shop
“Of all the wedding shows that we attend as exhibitors, I have to say this was probably our favourite. Not only were quality leads very plentiful, the whole design of the show and vibe was great. And it was really busy; time flew as we were talking to clients all day long.” My Wedding Away
“We love exhibiting with The wedding fairs team! The show itself always has a wonderful atmosphere and the couples we talk to are always really impressed with the quality of the show.” Fabelle London
“I was very impressed with the Wedding Fair at London Excel, mainly the amount of people who attended the show. I had new clients from the moment the doors opened right up until closing time on both days. I honestly could not have asked for anything better! I was also very pleased with the organisers and how helpful they were not only on the day of the shows but also on the lead up. Thankyou very much for such a brilliant show and looking forward to the next one.” Elizabeth Rita Makeup Artist
“ Thank you so much for all the help you and your team gave to us all at the Bluewater Wedding Fair - it was extremely well organised and that makes everyone's job easier. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of brides who were less focussed on price and more on the kind of photography they wanted. Geographically they were well spread too, from Oxford weddings - West and East Sussex, Kent, Essex and of course London. I had 160+ entries to my wedding competition. I have booked for next year and look forward to working with you again.” Alison Buchanan Photography
“ Just what North West brides and North West wedding suppliers have been waiting for...a well-planned and extremely enjoyable event executed to a high standard.” Red Floral Architecture
“The Wedding Fairs have grown faster than any show we have ever been a part of, as both a brand and an exhibition. The marketing strategies that the organisers use has made them the largest, most successful regional wedding shows around and we are looking forward to growing with them in the future. The success of this show gives us faith in the current economic climate.” Hyde & Park Designs
