Couples looking to get hitched this year will find everything they need to plan their special day at an event in North Tyneside

North Tyneside Register Office is set to host its first Wedding Fair on Sunday 25 February to showcase some of its fabulous rooms and local wedding services.

The event will run from 11am – 3pm and will feature more than 25 exhibitors offering everything from photography to wedding cakes, music and entertainment, bridal wear and stationery.

The Maritime Chambers, built in 1806, is a grade II-listed building offering a choice of three rooms – the register office room, The River Suite for 10 guests, and the Tyne View Room for 70 guests.

Couples will be able to take a tour of the venue and registrars will be present to answer any questions you might have and help you pick a date for your big day.

The event will also feature a prize draw for the chance to win a wedding ceremony worth up to £250 (subject to terms and conditions).

The event is free to attend, refreshments will be provided, and there is free parking on Howard Street, North Shields, NE30 1LZ.
