Wedding Village at Berkeley Show

Cotswold Wedding Guild

Wedding “Village” launched at Berkeley Show

The Cotswolds Wedding Guild, based in the picturesque market town of Berkeley, is launching a new attraction at the annual Berkeley Show this August Bank Holiday Monday (29th August 2011).

Over ten different types of wedding suppliers will be exhibiting together at this year’s event staged in the Berkeley Castle Meadow. Adam Drake Photography, Berkeley Castle, Berkeley Flowers, Cleeve Cake Company, Fisher Motor Company, Sur Les Ailes D’Amour (Dove Release), Temple Spa and Veils of Berkeley will all be participating in the show’s first tailor-made wedding “village”, which will showcase the diversity and high standard of companies in this area, supporting the wedding industry.

There is a plethora of top quality wedding suppliers in and around the Berkeley Vale and the Cotswold Wedding Guild has been established to promote excellence in these services in Berkeley and the Cotswolds.

The Wedding Village will include displays and demonstrations from the exhibitors including Fisher Motor Company’s flagship vehicle, and numerous sample bridal gowns and formal wear from Veils of Berkeley, all set in front of the back-drop of the Cotswolds most stunning wedding venue – Berkeley Castle.

The group is the brainchild of Pippa Springer, co-founder of the Veils of Berkeley bridal wear shop.  The first meeting was at the end of 2010 and they have already launched their own marketing initiatives.

“It was important to us to harness the local potential within the various wedding suppliers in Berkeley and the surrounding area, to create the perfect one-stop-shop for couples planning their wedding in the Cotswolds.” said Pippa.

The members of the guild pride themselves on producing quality products and services in conjunction with outstanding customer service and have recently launched their website, which features all of the founding members.

Following the Berkeley Show, the Cotswold Wedding Guild will also be involved in the Wedding Showcase Evening at Berkeley Castle on Wednesday 14th September.
