A free wedding fair is set to go ahead this month.

The event, hosted by Northumberland County Council's Registration Service, will take place on January 21, from 11am to 3pm at Morpeth Town Hall.

More than 30 local suppliers and venues will be present; and no tickets are necessary.

Those present will include photographers, live musicians, outfitters, florists, caterers and venue stylers.

The fair offers a prime opportunity for those planning to wed to meet with the registrar team and discuss the booking process, plus legalities and ways to organise the ideal ceremony.

Cllr Gordon Stewart, Member for Community Services, is looking forward to the event.

He said: "Northumberland is a fantastic place to get married and our registrars are experts in their field, from explaining the legalities in the lead up, to being a calming presence on your big day.

“The county boasts over 70 stunning and unique venues as well as hundreds of local suppliers to make your day perfect. We’re looking forward to couples meeting them, and our friendly registrars at our event this month.”
