Cumbria’s tourism-related businesses are eagerly awaiting the Lake District Wedding Fair 2020 – a unique event which last year welcomed around 1000 visitors from around the UK to meet face-to-face with bridal venues, suppliers, attractions and activity providers.
The county has a growing reputation as a rural wedding destination and according to Cumbrian Registrars, there were more than 5,000 weddings performed in the county in 2018 and 2019, with 2,300+ currently booked for 2020. There has also a been a leap in bookings for civil ceremonies already this year, following new legislation that allows opposite sex couples to form a civil partnership as of December.
The Lake District Wedding Fair 2020 on 22 and 23 February is poised to bring authentically local businesses a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with even more prospective brides and grooms.
As well as dozens of exhibitors and a new ‘Natural Zone’ for eco-conscious couples, there will also be live entertainment, the ‘Look’ fashion show, and a series of special workshops to help attract new wedding-related business to the county.
“With the Lake District and Cumbria proving increasingly popular for mini-moons, honeymoons and hen and stag dos, bridal business is a potential revenue stream throughout the year,” says event organiser Nick Hood.
“We also know that many of the couples who get married here continue to return to the same venue year after year to mark their anniversaries, so canny businesses genuinely can inspire repeat guests for life.
“We’re now into the final countdown, but we do still have a couple of last-minute exhibitor spaces left, so we are hoping to get all the finer details for the show finalised in the coming days.”
