More than 500 people were at the EDP Bride Wedding Show in Norwich yesterday to gather ideas and make plans for upcoming nuptials.

There were more than 60 stands offering everything wedding-related from multi-layered cakes, hats, dresses and rings, photography, musicians and vintage cars.

Diana Sims, general manager of Archant Weddings East, said she was thrilled with the response to the show.

She said: 'These events are so good because you have got everything under one roof. You have got lots of choice as well and that's what people are after - everything is all right here on your doorstep.'

Miss Howard said: 'One of the main things we came for was to get ideas for a venue and we've found something that looks ideal.

'This is a really good event for finding out what to do and seeing what's available.'

Among the exhibitors were Lauren Youngs and Ria Underwood, who are launching a new wedding dress business called Le Jour.

Ms Youngs said it was their first time taking part in an EDP Bride Wedding Show.

She said: 'It's been going well - everybody has been really welcoming. We've had a lot of interest for our build-your-own wedding dress, because a lot of people really like the idea of being able to design it themselves.'
