Sunday 7th February, North-West Brides and the Ulster Herald once again brought the world of weddings to Omagh. The Leisure Complex was the place to be for prospective brides and grooms from far and wide. The event provided lots of options for the savvy bride to organise her wedding under one roof.
The Bridal Fair itself was a hive of activity as exhibitors showcased their wares to a captive audience. For anyone who wanted to organise their ‘Big Day’ this was the perfect opportunity; many of the exhibitors had promoted various special offers, discounts or free draws for bookings made on the day.
There were fabulous prizes up for grabs including one couple who won their wedding day transport from Glendale Limousines, as well as overnight stays in luxurious hotels and a couple’s thrill experience at Todds Leap! Check out our list of winners below.
