The Oakridge Golf Club Wedding Fair - It was lovely to be there!

Yesterday I was at The Oakridge Golf Club Wedding Fair, in Nuneaton and had a wonderful time meeting couples and local suppliers.

As I am relatively new to Warwickshire, having relocated here only 18 months ago, I welcomed the opportunity to meet and network with some wonderful wedding-related businesses in this area and was very positively impressed by all I met. I also had the chance to see familiar faces again such as the wonderful Julie from Cards Galore, whom has been so very helpful and kind to me...

So I would like to share with you their details, in case you are now planning your wedding and need any of these services, and although I have not used any of these suppliers' for my own wedding, as I was married way before I met any of them (more's the pity!), I feel thyat you should at least get in touch and find out more. They are all, genuinely, lovel people!
