Showcasing a bride’s dream at Byron Bay

BYRON Shire residents will get a taste of Melbourne's notorious four seasons in one day at this year's Byron Bay Bridal Showcase.

Vendors from south east Queensland and northern NSW will transform Ewingsdale Hall on Saturday into a wedding wonderland styled around winter, spring, summer and autumn.

Founder Jennifer Gifford said "real wedding" spaces gave future brides and grooms an inspirational event not provided by traditional expo and fair formats.

"It's created much more like a styled photoshoot where couples can walk through and have a very visual and tactile experience," Jennifer said.

Suze McLeod, from Down Bangalow Road, said she enjoyed being involved in the showcase "because it encompasses the Byron ethos".

"There's no hard selling from vendors. People have the opportunity to have a look at real wedding styling without the pressure of someone shoving a business card in their face," she said.

"Couples can ask to speak to vendors they are interested in, which happens in a comfy lounge area."

The event also features food, music, hair and make-up demonstrations and a wedding fashion show.

Byron Bay Bridal Showcase is on Saturday, August 17 from 10am-4pm at Ewingsdale Hall, situated next to the church on William Flick Lane.

Entry is $20.
