Manchester Show Partners

We get by with a little help from our friends – we are proud to work with these brilliant companies, who contribute to making the show so successful.

Benefit Cosmetics

Instant beauty solutions, irreverent names and creative packaging… Benefit knows makeup doesn’t have to be serious to look good. In 1976, Jean and Jane Ford, the “fake it” twins, opened a quirky San Francisco makeup boutique with a whimsical candy store atmosphere.

Their new feel-good approach to beauty was a runaway hit and the twins successfully built Benefit Cosmetics into the international beauty empire that’s every gal’s best friend. In 1999, Benefit joined Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH), the world’s leading luxury group, and was catapulted into a global beauty presence with more than 3,000 counters in over 35 countries!

Cheshire East Registration Service

Cheshire East Registration Service is delighted to invite you to a Showcase Ceremony to give you a flavour of just how wonderful your ceremony can be.

Planning your big day should be the most exciting thing you will ever do, it can also be the most daunting! In amongst the dress, flowers, table decorations and everything else are two little words – ‘The ceremony’ the part of the day where you finally become Mr and Mrs!

But what about the ceremony, how long will it be? How traditional can it be? Is the bride’s father consent still asked in the time honoured way? Can the groom have a Best Man? And what words will you be expected to say and possibly have to remember?

See and hear ways to personalise your ceremony with readings and music to really make it yours.  Find out how traditional your ceremony can be; did you know you can use the bridal and wedding marches even though you are marrying in a civil ceremony?  Girls, do you know which name you will be signing in the register entry? And what actually needs to be done before big day to enable the marriage ceremony to go ahead.  Learn all this and more at our showcase ceremony as well as the opportunity to speak with registrars who really do help make your wedding day all that you wish it to be.
