The Inside Story: Behind the Scenes at The Woburn Estate Wedding Fair.

On Sunday 30th October the Woburn Weddings Team will put on the biggest local wedding event for prospective couples and planners. Nestled in the beautiful grounds of the Bedford Estate, the event management team at Woburn are bringing together a bespoke selection of photographers, florists and bridal accessory brands. This is the best place to truly get into the swing of wedding planning, whisked up in the atmosphere of the stunning Abbey gardens and Sculpture Gallery scenery. Whether you are just starting off with forming your dream wedding package, or your wedding is only a matter of months away, this is the event for you.

I have first-hand experience of the excellent level of service that the Woburn team offer from working with them in the past during weddings and corporate events. Now that I have the opportunity to return with my role at yada, I can’t wait to head back and experience the venue from a guest’s point of view!

I put a few questions to the team as they are deep in the process of organising this years’ fair. Read on to find out more about what it takes to create an event like this, meeting the high standards of the Bedford Estates name.


To start us off, how are the preparations going for The Woburn Wedding Fair this year?

Things are well under way, apart from the day of the fair this is when you get to see it all starting to come together. The team are really excited and can’t wait to welcome everybody on Sunday.

What kind of exhibitors can attendees expect to find at the fair?

We have a wide array of companies attending so that planners and couples can find everything they need to create the perfect wedding day. Whether you are looking for luxury cars to get from the ceremony to the reception or you are searching for the very best photo capture technology for all your party guests, this fair will provide the inspiration and face-to-face contact with the companies that aim to make your wedding special and personal to you.

What makes Woburn Wedding Fair stand-out from or other fairs in the area?  

We restrict the number of exhibitors from one category to ensure we offer a varied choice. The quality of the exhibitors is second to none, among them Woburn is their favourite wedding fair to exhibit at. As trends change we are in the perfect position to adapt, there is nowhere in the UK that can offer brides such a wide variety of choice in venues. Our luxury venues include: The Sculpture Gallery, The Woburn Hotel, and The Safari Lodge.

It is the level of experience, professionalism and our attention to detail that makes Woburn Weddings different and ensures every bride will have the most memorable wedding. Also as part of our commitment to the community we offer one shop complimentary for a local charity which this time is for Willen Hospice.

Are there any lessons your team have learnt from previous years that has helped you to make this October Wedding Fair extra special?

We continuously review to see the quality of the exhibitors, and how the team interact on the day. This year we will also be asking for feedback from brides who visited so we can continue to be the best wedding fair in the Home Counties.

Do Woburn Weddings focus on sourcing local companies for their Wedding Fairs?

We only accept only the very best of local companies from Herts, Beds & Bucks. Many of those exhibiting are our recommended suppliers, so it has the Woburn guarantee of quality and professionalism.

Are there any extra activities on the day that Brides-to-be and their friends and family can get involved with?  

They can enjoy a walk around the gardens that are exclusive to brides getting married at Woburn. For the attendees who want to make the most for their day, they are welcome to enjoy a special afternoon tea at The Woburn Hotel to discuss plans with friends and family. Afternoon Tea will be served between 1.00pm and 5.30pm, £22.00 per person, booking is essential.

And finally, what is next for the Woburn Weddings team after October 30th, what shall we look out for next year?
