Business set for annual wedding fair

Couples planning their big day are being invited to a special wedding fair next month.

There will be more than 30 local companies showcasing their services at the event in Morpeth Town Hall.

Entry to the fair is free and various refreshments will be available.

Throughout the day, Northumberland County Council’s registrars, who officiate over civil ceremonies, will be available to meet couples and show them around the Town Hall function rooms which regularly host weddings.

Coun Val Tyler, policy board member for community infrastructure and culture at Northumberland County Council, said: “We hope this fair will provide a wonderful opportunity for local businesses to meet and chat with potential customers.

“Our last wedding fair in December attracted a fantastic turnout and those who attended found it really helpful to gain specialist advice and have the time to talk to the registrars, all within one venue.

“Many local couples may have become engaged over Christmas and New Year and we hope they will come along and see what local services have to offer.”

The fair takes place on Sunday, March 9, from 11am to 3pm.

The Town Hall is a popular place to tie the knot following major refurbishments.
