Thousands of excited bride and grooms-to-be are at the Norfolk Showground today, as a two-day wedding spectacular continues.

The EDP Wedding Show, now in its sixth year, has more than 150 exhibitors offer guidance to soon-to-be newlyweds in need of a little help turning their dreams into reality.

The show, which is sponsored by Alba Rose diamonds, ran yesterday and finishes today, with stalls, shows and a champagne bar to keep guests happy.

And by Saturday morning the show was already off to a lively start, with an estimated 1,000 through the doors by 12pm.

Laura Honey, 33, of Newmarket, came to the show with her sister ahead of her wedding this June.

This year, two lucky couples will win their dream wedding, as they walk away with £25,000 worth of wedding goodies in a one-of-a-kind competition.

Dresses, a marquee, accessories, transport, photographers and even hen and stag parties will all be up for grabs in the giveaway.

To be in with a chance of winning your wedding, visit the show, follow the trail around it and put your completed entry into the prize draw box. Tickets can still be bought on the day. They cost £10, £18 for two or £32 for four.

The show runs from 10am to 4pm both days.
