Wedding planners are encouraged to visit the Holiday Inn Southampton this weekend if they want to add a little extra sparkle to their special day.

The hotel will be hosting a charity wedding fair on Sunday, March 5, starting at 10am.

It will feature a wide range of wedding providers, a charity raffle, a catwalk showcasing some of the top wedding dresses of the year, as well as a goody bag for the first 150 brides who appear.

Tickets can be purchased on the door for £2 a person.

All proceeds made from the event will go to the Southampton Hospital Charity - specifically towards the Piam Brown children’s cancer unit.
