Bridal expo offers ideas

By Ashlea Witoslawski

It was the perfect spring day to inspire future brides and grooms at the Shepparton Bridal Expo on Sunday.

Held for the second year by Shepparton Golf Club, the event showcased its own wedding services and those of local businesses.

Fifteen businesses including hairdressers, photographers and decorators filled the venue with a marquee and a mock ceremony set up on the golf greens.

Shepparton Golf Club social committee chair Ian Bull said the event was a great opportunity for local businesses in the wedding industry to show off their talents.

‘‘It’s also a good opportunity for the golf club to show our facilities for receptions and ceremonies.’’

Mr Bull said weddings should be special and this event gave the local community a chance to learn more for their upcoming nuptials.

‘‘This is a community event to assist brides and grooms to prepare for their weddings.’’
