competition time: win 1 of 5 pairs of tickets to The National Wedding Show, Manchester Central

This spring, the UK’s largest wedding event – The National Wedding Show – will take up residence at Manchester Central, formerly The GMex in Manchester City Centre…and I will be amongst the exhibitors!

The event, which will take place on 15 and 16 March 2014, will give brides-to-be the opportunity to speak to some of the UK’s leading wedding experts; peruse thousands of boutique, designer and couture bridal dresses; get inspiration and ideas for an array of themes and budgets; and compare a vast range of wedding suppliers – from florists to caterers – conveniently, all in one place.

More than 150 local and national businesses will be on hand ready to help and advise on every element of the big day. There will be a Champagne Bar, Afternoon Tea Room and during the exhibition, guests will be able to view stunning dresses, accessories and flowers being showcased on the biggest wedding catwalk in the UK.

Cakes by Beth’s latest wedding cake collection, aptly named The 2014 Collection, will be launched at the show on stand G69, situated between the champagne bar and wedding theatre. I can’t wait to show you my latest designs and ideas! I will be on hand to talk through your ideas about your wedding cake and advise on different options that you might like to consider, plus offering free cake samples to everyone who registers for further information and a special show discount if you would like to reserve your wedding date at the show. It’s going to be such a great show, I am very excited!

I launch a new collection every year so as a bit of a taster of what is to come, here is a little showcase of last year’s collection. The 2013 Collection was a great success and included designs such as Antoinette, The Drawing Room and White Swan. The image below is also a link that takes you through to my website, which has further examples of wedding cake designs in my portfolio.
