WITH the glorious sunshine offering a first taste of spring, Sunday was the perfect day to start the new season of I Will wedding shows.

The venue was Stourport Manor Hotel, which buzzed with excitement as more than 120 brides and grooms-to-be discovered inspiration for planning their big day.

Expert advice was on hand from a range of exhibitors while visitors were also able to investigate the amenities of the country house hotel.

Helen Hall, general manager at Stourport Manor, said: "The show was very successful for us, as there were lots of brides interested in booking the hotel as a wedding venue. The I Will team ensured everything ran smoothly and the exhibitors all seemed happy – it really exceeded our expectations."

The next I Will show takes place this Sunday (February 9) at The Hilton Hotel in Bromsgrove, between 11am and 3pm.

There will also be the chance to enter the free prize draw to win a dream dress from this season’s sponsor, Bridal Boutique of Worcester.

The I Will wedding shows, run by the people behind local newspapers such as The Shuttle, Bromsgrove Advertiser, Redditch Advertiser, Stourbridge News, Halesowen News and Dudley News, bring together an array of services under one roof.
