Newbattle Abbey is preparing to open its doors to couples planning to get married for its first ever wedding fair on Sunday, 22 September 2013 from 1-5pm. Entry to the event, which is being organised to showcase the elegant venue, will be free and everyone who attends will receive a complimentary glass of champagne.

During the day, brides and grooms to-be will be given an opportunity to view the beautiful rooms used for weddings at Newbattle Abbey, and enjoying one-to-one consultations with wedding specialists, including Newbattle Abbey’s own wedding planner. There will also be live music and catwalk fashion shows throughout the day to help brides start thinking about their search for the perfect wedding dress.

Lucy Caldwell, who is Events Marketing Officer at Newbattle Abbey, said:-“We are so excited to be holding our first wedding fair and inviting the public to come and have a look inside Newbattle Abbey. The venue is breath-taking and is a unique choice as many people still don’t know it exists, despite the fact we have been hosting weddings here for many years. It really is a hidden gem in Scotland.”

The stunning Victorian venue, which was founded in 1140, is set in 125 acres of beautiful parkland and is drenched in history. As it is located just 7 miles from Edinburgh city centre, it offers couples both a convenient and tranquil place to hold their special day.

Vendors set to be at the event include Virgin Holidays, Debenhams Wedding Lists, Simple Celebrations Candy Buffet, Pan Pan Bridal, Marc Millar Photography, Heavenly Tiers and Jeffrey Gardner Designs.

The Newbattle Abbey wedding fair will take place at Newbattle Abbey, Newbattle Road, Dalkeith on Sunday, 22 August between 1pm and 5pm. Complimentary parking will be available onsite and the first 50 brides through the door will receive a fantastic goody bag to take home.
