Two-day Wedding Fair supporting Help For Heroes

A WEDDING Fair supporting the Help For Heroes charity is to take place at the Winter Garden and feature a real wedding.

The One Stop Wedding Shop in Eastbourne is organising the large fair which will take place on January 8 and 9.

It is hoped it will become the first of a long line of major annual wedding shows.

Married-couples-to-be are being invited to attend the event in preparation of their big day.

They will be able to support charity at the same time because all proceeds from the show, together with any donations and fundraising from exhibitors and visitors, are being donated to Help for Heroes.

The show will also feature a real wedding on the Saturday, which is a first for any wedding fair in the country.

The happy couple are hairdresser Jal Clarke and his partner Nicky Philpott, owners of Icon Hair Academy in Eastbourne. This will also be the first wedding at the Winter Garden.

The preparations for the fair and the wedding are being filmed for a television programme and a preliminary section will be shown at the wedding fair on a screen in the main hall.

All the stands, exhibitions and the wedding are taking place in the Gold Room at the Winter Garden.

Visitors attending on the Saturday will receive an invitation to the wedding ceremony.
