Bridal expo a hit with locals

MORE than 200 brides converged at the Minden Retreat on Sunday for the ‘Our Country Wedding’ annual Spring Bridal Fair keen to pick up ideas for their special day.

The retreat was filled with 37 exhibitors on showcase including photographers, classic car hirers, wedding dress designers, florists and wedding planners.

Minden Retreat caretaker Mark Gregory said it was a successful day which also managed to raise $360 for the local fire brigade.

“I think it was a positive day for everyone, exhibitors, ourselves, scouts and the rural fire brigade,” he said.

“We were very relieved the weather held off.

“We’ve already got six bookings out of it and have had a lot of positive feedback.

“I’m very pleased with it and I think the overall atmosphere of the day was good, people were less stressed and the exhibitors were very happy as well.”
