Bride: The Wedding Show, in association with the Eastern Daily Press and sponsored by Pure Brides and Grooms, is at the Norfolk Showground on Saturday and Sunday.

Among the exhibitors will be Norfolk Spa and Leisure which offers a touch of luxury with hot tubs for hire for both hen and stag weekends, and also as a special treat for people wanting to relax before or after their wedding day.

'People can just relax, kick back and enjoy the hot tub with a glass of bubbles,' said Anita Burton, who runs the business with her husband Robert. She said one of the hot tubs would be on display at the wedding show and that people can also visit the company's showroom in Hevingham to try out the different hot tubs.

The Newmarket Hamper Company will also be at the show, offering a relaxed alternative to the traditional wedding breakfast and also some delicious treats for hen dos.

Paul Jeffs, who runs the company with his wife Tessa, said: 'Our food hampers are for people who want a relaxed, laid-back wedding meal, instead of the formal sit down three-course meal.'

He said typically the hampers - which can be used as the centrepieces for tables - can include a meat platter, a cheese board, triple chocolate brownies, Victoria sponge and scones.
