Bridal Bonanza: Canterbury Bride of the Year

The sentiment behind your wedding day is, undoubtedly, the most important aspect, but let’s be honest here, the bride’s entry is the moment that all in attendance are waiting for with baited breath.




That perfect dress which is said to be the focus of attention on a wedding day is worn just once before being tucked away in the back of the wardrobe, never to be worn again… that is, until now.

The 2020 Canterbury Bride of the Year is your chance to wear that dress again without the stress and pressure that comes with the Big Day, event founder Suzanne Carson explains.

“We started the Canterbury Bride of the Year in 2008, primarily for ladies to relive their wedding day and wear their dress again, but also to give them the opportunity to meet other brides in a relaxing environment.

“These women make lifelong friends. It becomes a milestone in their life in much the same way as their wedding.”

Held this year at Rydges Latimer on Sunday 27 September and in support of Canterbury Westcoast Air Rescue, this year’s event will be packed with exciting opportunities for engaged couples.

The wedding industry has come together and they will experience their wedding suppliers in action, in real time; celebrants, vocalists, florists, décor stylists, to name a few.

Opportunities to win some very exciting prizes, including a $3000 wedding dress, a bride’s party pamper session, florals for the wedding day and much more.

“The event is about supporting the wedding industry, and bringing them to you, so we will be focusing on introducing bridal trends, suppliers and options.”

Engaged couples will witness previous season’s brides vying for the Canterbury Bride of the Year 2020, Canterbury Bridesmaid of the Year 2020 and Canterbury Flower Girl of the Year 2020 titles, with an exceptional line-up for judges, including Dancing with the Stars’ Vanessa Cole.

The evening is expected to be the wedding event of the year.

Entries are still being accepted until 15 September, email Phone 0800 377 7800.

Event Tickets can be purchased from Eventfinda.
