Luxury Wedding Show: 22 & 23 October 2011 Saatchi Gallery

28 Oct

Off we went to the luxury wedding show this weekend which was held at the Saatchi Gallery on London’s Kings Road.

The venue was fabulous for a wedding show as it’s white walls and calming influence made the show feel serene and plush and not at all overwhelming. The suppliers were a really friendly and welcoming bunch and ready to help with an array of answers to any wedding question you could ask.

Tickets were £50 a pop (and then theres the train fare to factor in) but if you needed high-end inspiration you had come to the right place.

The ticket price included the all important goody bag (Opi Nail Polish, 3 Elemis Anti-Wrinkle Creams, Cleansing Oil, Gui Flapjack bar, 3 perfume samples and Pearl Drops toothpaste) and entrance into the catwalk show with complimentary glass of Pommery.

The catwalk show was one of the slickest we had seen all year with a great collection of dresses from Vera Wang, Vivienne Westwood, David Fielden, Monique Lhuillier, Marchesa, Temperley London, Delphine Manivet, Carolina Herrera, Peter Langner, Charlotte Casadejus, Luella’s Boudoir, Candy Anthony, Kula Tsurdiu, Angelina Colarusso and The State of Grace – we’d have dared you not to find your perfect dress amongst them!

Even if you don’t have a huge budget the show is perfect for taking inspiration from some of the biggest names in the wedding industry.

Our verdict? Save your money on other wedding show entrance fees and come here – you won’t be disappointed!
