What wedding suppliers & venues have to say about our wedding shows:

John Mason Photography - February 2020

Main events are quite possibly my favourite event company out there...

Not only do they know how to organise a show,they are friendly ,professional and polite.

The way they advertise each show provides a great foot fall of potential couples and the calibre of couples attending their shows is top notch.

Well done team and thank you!


Shianne Mercer Photography - October 2019

Hi Vanessa,

Just wanted to pop a little email over just to say thank you. Your company has encouraged me to do things I never thought I could and be a part of this amazing wedding industry. You have given me support when needed and opportunities that are absolutely amazing which are really helping my business grow and be seen to its fullest potential.

 I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you in helping advertise my business in your most recent issue of Absolute Bridal Magazine. I am thrilled to be a part of the Essex Wedding Awards too. Again, another amazing opportunity that without you all wouldn't have happened.

 I look forward to working with you all in the future with some amazing things already planned for next year and seeing you at the Awards Ceremony.

Martels Bridal Boutique - Karen Lambert – Autumn 2019
Our team attended the recent Main Event Wedding show at Chelmsford City Racecourse and was blown away by not only the offers, gifts and inticements for brides but also the high quality of the other suppliers exhibiting for the whole weekend. We found it to be so well attended, and by genuine and friendly customers too. We will all be back in February, April and September 2020, and look forward to it!


Mini & Me Photography - Dani & Helen – Autumn 2019
Well Ladies, 

You've done it again ! I have not moved from my computer today- as soon as I think I'm up to date with my emails another enquiry comes in, it has literally blown up our inbox! 

The hits on our website are through the roof since Saturday and up our instagram follows has increased too. 

We were worried about not being there on Sunday ( and really missed it ) but we are so so chuffed. 

You really have changed our business and we will always be grateful for that.

Thankyou for being awesome - Love you all

Love Letters UK - Samantha Yeomans – Spring 2019
Our first ever wedding show for our business Love Letters UK was with Main Event Wedding Shows at the Chelmsford City Racecourse.

The Main Event Wedding Show Ladies were amazing, they were so helpful, kind and made us feel welcome.  There was an amazing atmosphere at the show not only for the brides and grooms but also for the suppliers, everyone was friendly!

Since then we’ve experienced other shows that aren’t with Main Event and we can honestly say we are so grateful that our first ever experience at a Wedding Show was with you, you are the best in the business!

Also to top all of that we gained bookings from the show and lots of enquiries too, so to all the lovely ladies at Main Event and especially to Donna, Thank you, Thank You, Thank You! 😊


Kerry-Anne’s Cake Boutique – Spring 2019

Fab day yesterday at the the lion inn hotel wedding fair. Cakes were a hit, met some really lovely couples who I will be in touch with this week, and made some great contacts with other very talented suppliers! 
Thank you main event wedding shows for putting on a good day. 


La Closet De Chanel - Chanel, Owner – Spring 2019

Well what can I say, being new to the wedding industry in 2017 I certainly wasn’t expecting to be made to feel almost like a part of a little family..... Main Event are fantastic and the only company I would want to use for wedding shows and advertising.... nothing is too much trouble for these lovely ladies 💕 I would recommend any wedding supplier no matter how big or small to Main Event 💕


Chic Wedding Photography & Video - Andy, Owner – Spring 2019

I (Chic Wedding Photography & Video) have now done a number of main events wedding fayres with the most recent being the Chelmsford city racecourse April 2019. 

Quality footfall numbers, professional staff, whom are always a delight to deal with and a family/friendly feel amongst fellow exhibitors is why I would recommend main event to all suppliers and most of all, engaged couples planning a wedding.


Wedding Reel Wedding Films – Autumn 2018

We would thoroughly endorse Main Event Wedding Shows. Having attended their fayres of all sizes for many years, we know they will be well organised and well attended thanks to their incredibly strong marketing efforts. Highly recommended. James, Wedding Reel Wedding Films


The House, Shuttleworth - Adam Webb, Manager - Spring 2018

After spending many months looking for a wedding exhibition company to deliver a show at Shuttleworth. I came across Main Event Wedding Shows Ltd. After my first meeting with Linda and Vanessa, I knew Main Event was the right company for Shuttleworth and my department. We are now 2 years and many shows in and I could not be happier with the service and standards Main Event deliver. Not only are they are joy to work with but they have helped generate more revenue and business.


Wedding Cars Of Herts - Derek Snowden - Spring 2018

Hi Vanessa,

I would like to thank you and all at Tewinbury Farm for all your efforts last Sunday. We have been doing shows for the last 10 years and this was one of the best we have attended.

Very Very Busy, well organised, plenty of room between the isles for the public to wander, all in all a very nice atmosphere.

Thank You All once again.

Hutton Hall - Francesca, the owner - Autumn 2017

Dear Vanessa,

We had a wonderful day on Sunday! By far the best open day/wedding show we have had.  It was run so well on the day by Lena and Kristina, it all went too quickly!   

The feedback from some of the suppliers, especially Jade’s, was that it was the best one she had been to.  

We’ve already secured a booking from it already and have had another three brides email to say they want to secure the venue for their day and are working out the particulars with them now. 

Today we will email all the brides as a follow up and to invite them back to see the venue dressed for a wedding breakfast.  All information received will stay on our database only and will remain confidential.

Thank you so much Vanessa for organising a wonderful wedding show and look forward to hearing back from you.


Wedding Cars Of Herts - Derek Snowden 

Just to say thank you for an excellent show at Hunton Park yesterday: Well organised; Very helpful staff, both those working for Main Event and the Hotel; extremely busy throughout the day; I would thoroughly recommend Main Event, and particularly this venue, to prospective suppliers. Thank you once again.


Vaulty Manor wedding venue – Kirsty, Manager 

"What a great day at the Wedding Fayre on Sunday. Your team were fabulous, as always. The turnout was incredible and we took a brilliant 5 bookings on the day. With a further 6 in the past two days. To say I’m a very happy Wedding co-coordinator is an understatement. Looking forward to October show." 


Chelmsford City Racecourse Wedding show 3rd & 4th September 2016, busiest show yet over 2,500 people! Here is what some of our clients had to say:

Caroline Pattrick - Music By Violin
I exhibited with Main Event at Chelmsford Racecourse last weekend on both days. It was the busiest & most productive wedding fayre I have ever exhibited at! It was so well advertised and organised. The team are fantastic! They made sure we all had our requirements met. I was very pleased with my stand too. Well done, I am looking forward to the next one! Thank you so much. 

Mini & Me Photography
After exhibiting with Main Event at Chelmsford race course this weekend I had to write a review. Without doubt the most well organised, well attended fayre we have ever booked. The team work so hard both for the vendors and Couples and the marketing is spot on. The venue was great with lots of space and lots of couples commented on what a nice place it was to hold a fayre. Thank you so much for having us - can't wait to work with you again!  

Essex Bridal Outlet - Donna Byrne
Fantastic wedding show this weekend at the Chelmsford City Racecourse. Well organised and a fantastic turnout, very productive weekend for us. Will be back again.

Sam Garner – Owner Stock Florist
Dear Vanessa & Team

I just wanted to say a HUGE congratulations for a very well organised and packed event at Chelmsford Race Course.  I have supported Main Events for the last two years and would definitely recommend, they are professional, always create a great atmosphere and have amazing staff on hand to assist you at all times.

Working in the wedding industry is a whole lot easier and hassle free working with a team that actually care about business.

Thanks guys and well done!

Just wanted to say a big thank you and congratulations to you all on the outstanding Main Event Wedding Show you produced yesterday at Chelmsford City Racecourse!!! As an exhibitor I was thrilled at not only the attendance of bride and grooms to be but just how well the whole show had been organised - it really was lovely to see people engaging with the exhibitors and then see them - not whizzing off-but staying to enjoy food and drinks-basically making a day out of it!!! A brilliant day had by all-could not have been any better!! With thanks and best wishes Ed at Heavenly Petals

Hylands House wedding show 20th September 2015

Main Event continue their excellence in producing very well attended and organised wedding shows. We have now been exhibiting with Main event for over 4 years and will continue to do so, purely and simply they are the best in the biz!

Sam Lloyd - General Manager Port Lympne Mansion Hotel      

As a manager of a Wedding Venue I’ve worked with many companies over the years to put on Wedding Shows, none have been as professional, helpful and good as Main Event Wedding Shows Ltd. 

 What I have loved about working with Main Event is that they give you a dedicated co-ordinator who visits you prior to event to discuss the best use of space, logistics and how the event will be managed on the day.  They drop off posters well in advance to enable you to locally promote the event and support the day through a through marketing and pr strategy.  On the day the co-ordinator arrives and manages all of the exhibitor and brides which saves me time and enables me to sell my venue and leave the rest to Main Event!

If I was looking for a professional Wedding Show Company who really do deliver then I recommend Main Weddings & Events.

Sally's Cake Pops

I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you for the event that we attended last Sunday 20th May at Pontlands Park, a lovely setting and we had a great day with lots of interest and have already had two orders placed so we are very happy. The show had a great atmosphere and a steady stream of visitors and we have made some great contacts with the other suppliers so all in all a job very well done by you all at Main Event! Please do keep us informed of your autumn shows as I'm sure we'd be keen to sign up for more events with you as it was such a good experience.

Thanks again and best wishes,

Dear Vanessa and Linda,

Re: Hanbury Manor Sunday 15th April 2012

I wanted to  write a quick email expressing my thanks to you both for a wonderful show yesterday, I thought it was exceptionally well attended and was beautifully organized so thank you both very much, of course Anna and I would love to be considered for the next show at Hanbury whenever that might be. In the mean time I very much look forward to seeing you at Letchworth.

With warm regards

Great Hallingbury Manor

Hi Vanessa

I would like to say a big thank you for last Sunday's wedding show. (4th March 2012)  

Your staff were absolute stars. Everything was very well organised, and they made sure that everybody knew what was expected and what was going on. They were really welcoming to all people coming through the door and did their VERY best to ensure all brides-to-be who had not yet booked a venue were seen by one of our staff members (even if that meant running around trying to find a staff member who was not already showing someone around!)


Overall the show was a big success for us and we managed to take quite a few new bookings.

I am looking forward to our next show with you and would please like to request an available date for next Winter/Spring too if available.


Kind regards


Jill Moore

Piano DJ - James Hughes, Owner

Dear Vanessa and Linda,

 Thank you ever so much for the opportunity to exhibit at the Reid Rooms wedding fayre.   I have exhibited at 15 wedding fayres this spring and it was by far the most successful show. There was a constant flow of brides who were eager to engage and discuss their wedding music and entertainment options with us, the atmosphere was lovely and relaxed and we secured the most confirmed bookings that we have ever taken from a wedding fayre. It provided a great opportunity to catch up and network with some of the best wedding suppliers in Essex and I whole heartedly thank you for running such a brilliant event.   Kindest Regards   James

Look forward to seeing you this Saturday at the next one.

I would like to thank both Vanessa and Linda for one of the most endearing experiences. Not only does their professionalism provide a comfortable reassurance to future business, we are always guaranteed a realistic work ethic to achieving all possible marketing avenues to maximise our portfolio"

Now that we have experienced an honest and courteous organisation, we shall look forward to doing more shows in the next term. Kind regards, Joe, Hyde & Park Design

Dear Linda,

Wedding Fairs, I don’t often do them, long days, hard work, not many people through the door, no bookings.  But Linda is persuasive, she had a show at Blake Hall, one of my favourite venues.  Austin the Manager is always good for a chat if no one comes, some hope, my voice was horse by the end of the day.  Bride after Bride (and the occasional Groom, who wasn’t fishing or playing golf!).

The atmosphere was great, (a live singer made it feel as though a wedding was on).  I nearly underestimated the amount of brochures to take (and being a photographer I don’t leave anything to chance).  The end result is 5 bookings, 3 for 2011 and a lot of people waiting to firm up a date with a venue before they ring.  Linda and the gang well done.

Kind regards



Blushing Brides Hair & Beauty

Hi Vanessa, I just wanted to thank you today for such a lovely exhibition at the Reid Rooms this weekend.  I have only carried out one exhibition in the past and that was the Brentwood Centre many years ago.  I think that exhibition is what frightened me off of exhibitions.  It was so huge and it lacked any magic.  Today was a total contrast.  It was warm and inviting and it was a pleasure to see fellow exhibitors enjoying the day.  It was so relaxed, I dont think I have ever attended an exhibition with such a relaxed air about it.  Also, there were so many of your staff about continuously checking we were all ok.  I did not meet anyone at the Brentwood exhibition, no one came to see how I was getting on. I think it was far too big for me, too vast.   It was so nice and Kathleen was just fab, so friendly and helpful too.  Thank you.  I’m actually looking forward to the next one!
