Argyll and Bute Registrars are putting on a free Wedding Showcase, in collaboration with HLCC Events, at the Civic Centre on Sunday 22 March, from 12.00-4.00pm, to help Helensburgh and Lomond couples who are planning their special day.
The event brings together 32 of the best local vendors under one roof and is the ideal place to not only get great ideas but to potentially book everything you need for your big day.
Helensburgh and Lomond Civic Centre is itself a fantastic, central venue to not only hold the ceremony, but to also celebrate the wedding reception.
Visitors will also be able to speak to representatives from other venues within the area – from those that rest on the banks of Loch Lomond and the shores of Loch Long, to boats that allow you to get married on-board, as well as venues with views that are utterly breathtaking.
Also in the mix at the event will be ideas on choosing a dress, photographer, hair and makeup.
The registrars will of course be on hand throughout the day to discuss how you can create the ceremony of your dreams for you, your partner, family and friends. With their years of experience, they will be able to suggest different ways to make your ceremony unique and listen to your vision, for what will be one of the happiest days of your life. They want the run up to your big day to be an enjoyable experience and are on hand to guide you through the legal requirements and ensure the process is completed as smoothly as possible.
Anyone attending the event can enter a competition by simply filling in a registration form and entering a prize draw.
The three prizes that can be won* are:
- £500 towards a wedding gown from Wedding Planner’s current bridal collection;
- £600 off of The HLCC venue hire for your wedding reception;
- £293.70 maximum saving for a Registrar to conduct your ceremony in the Marriage Room of the Civic Centre.
