Couples preparing for their special day can find hundreds of ideas and tips at tomorrow's Archant Wedding Show at Dunston Hall.

The free event, organised by the publishers of the EDP, is one of the biggest wedding shows in Norfolk and will have 70 exhibitors from all over East Anglia.

Every aspect of the big day will be covered, not forgetting the all-important dress, menswear and attendant oufits, through to hair and beauty and the finishing touches of accessories and jewellery.

And, once the look is perfected, photographers and video companies, florists and stationers will be on hand to guide visitors through the essentials to ensure their wedding is exactly as they desire.

Even quirky extras that add something memorable to the reception - such as ice sculptures and chocolate fountains - will be there, along with less traditional wedding day transport of a helicopter and double-decker bus.

Steve Maddams, one of the main organisers, said: “We're expecting hundreds of brides and grooms to come through the doors on Sunday.
