Perfocal at the National Wedding Show 2019

Perfocal at the National Wedding Show 2019

This past weekend, on 12th and 13th October 2019, Perfocal was excited to attend the National Wedding Show at the Excel Centre in London. We met hundreds of brides and grooms-to-be, who were beginning to plan their wedding and came to the exhibition to gather some ideas for their big days.

It was a huge weekend, with an entire hall decked out with beautiful and aspirational wedding-themed stands. There was an entire double-decker bus filled with cakes, a wedding dress catwalk and even a cocktail bar! ?

Perfocal's stand was right by the entrance to the fair, so we were extremely busy talking with the public. Luckily we had every member of the team come down to take part in the weekend!

Our stand was adorned with purple flowers, purple lights and purple badges - we think we maybe had a theme!

The teal tote bags for the 'brides to be' were a huge hit, and we quickly realised we didn't bring enough to satisfy the wedding fair attendees. We had to start rationing them on Sunday afternoon!

Also popular was the couple photoshoot giveaway. We were offering a free, professional couple photoshoot to one lucky pair, out of all of the National Wedding Show attendees. It was great to see that we had hundreds of entries, which certainly took a while to count.

We held the draw this Thursday, which was added to our Instagram story. You can check out the video here.

The lucky winner of the free photoshoot was Rebecca G! We've notified Rebecca and are massively looking forward to seeing her stunning pre-wedding couple photos. Congratulations Rebecca, and thanks to everyone who entered.


You can check out the amazing photos of the winning couple here.

We also met lots of fantastic wedding photographers over the weekend - it was great to chat to you all and even gain some new photographer members ?

See you there next year! And to everyone who attended - we hope your weddings are as amazing as you deserve, and the photography even better!
