Behind the scenes of our annual Wedding Showcase, held in our London Showroom. We assembled a hand-picked selection of some of our most-loved wedding supplier friends, making it the ultimate destination for brides and grooms planning a stylish and unique wedding. Read on to find out more about all of the amazing suppliers we had on board, and see exclusive behind the scenes photos and videos from the night.
Our fifth, and biggest, wedding showcase - this year was a year to remember. Tickets sold out and it's not hard to see why. We were bowled over by the amazing collection of wedding suppliers we had on board this year - all hand-picked by the WPC team following a personal experience. We know how far a personal recommendation goes, it's how most of our lovely couples find us, so we wanted to share the love and introduce engaged brides and grooms to some of our wonderful friends in the industry.
A regular at any WPC party, The Cocktail Service returned and took over our showroom bar, transforming it to rival some of London's best cocktail bars. They showcased three delicious cocktails from their new botanical menu, as well as mocktails and free-flowing Champagne from Perrier-Jouet. Greeting couples as they came in, the bar was complimentary all night and set the tone brilliantly for the evening.
The Cocktail Service are our go-to for mobile bar hire. Their team and innovative cocktails are second to none, and they can work within any venue or marquee set up to ensure the drinks flow with flair and ease all night long. If you’re looking for a bespoke cocktail company to man your wedding bar, these are your guys.
The incredible Millie Richardson returned to our showroom for the third time to transform it into a floral fantasy-land. Millie and her team created the most incredible installation, tranforming our staircase into a fluffy, flowery dream! Entirely foam free, this was the definition of sustainable floristry and a week later the installation has dried and looks just as beautiful!
Millie is an expert when it comes to loose, romantic, wild flowers that come with a serious wow-factor, and she aims to offer an alternative to the traditional methods of flower arranging. She has a known track record to transform any venue or marquee to into something breath-takingly beautiful and memorable. With a love of the whimsical and fresh, Millie and her team create lush and natural arrangements which celebrate seasonal blooms and foliage to ensure that her wedding, event and party flower commissions are as beautiful and natural as they can possibly be. Specialising in marquee weddings and luxury venues, Millie’s eye is one you want on your wedding team.
Our go-to luxury bridal boutique, Miss Bush, delivered the fashion for the evening with an exclusive preview of the new Jesus Piero collection. Housing the largest selection of this epitmous Spanish bridal brand, team Bush delivered mini fashion shows giving brides-to-be an exclusive look at the new collection.
Miss Bush showcased a couple of their favourites from the collection to display on the mannequins; the innovative style 208 (made from recycled plastic bottles!) and the high-necked 204 lace t-shirt dress.
They chose the showstopping style 218 for their lovely model, Chloe, to wear on the evening. The top-to-toe sparkles with an ethereal floaty train and romantic full bishop sleeves stopped everyone in their tracks as Chloe wandered around our showroom.
The wonderful Two Many Cooks created a mouth-watering display of bespoke canapés, transforming our kitchen island into the ultimate grazing station for guests to enjoy. Emily and her team are experts when it comes to bespoke wedding and event catering that looks as delicious as it tastes. They created the most delectable menu, specifically for the showcase, which included options to suit all dietary requirements:
They also wowed us with a three tier wedding cake, the perfect post canapé sugar-high!

The amazing award winning Carolanne Armstrong and Sharon Roberts took over a corner of our showroom and turned it into their very own mini salon. Carolanne was one hand to chat all things make up with brides to be, and showcased her love for natural make up that is designed to enhance the natural beauty of her brides. Sharon was busy all night showing off her super speedy up-dos and helping brides consider the right type of hair style for their wedding day.
No event would be complete without someone special there to capture it, and we were seriously spoiled to have a photographer, videographer AND a photobooth. The amazing brother and sister duo Jojo and George from Jorge Events brilliantly captured the atmosphere of the evening with their brilliant images and video. And then there's The Boomerang Booth. Hands down the most fun addition to ANY party! Causing countless laughs, we had couples booking it for their weddings right there and then - it really is the ultimate addition to any party.
As always, our brilliant wedding list advisors were on hand to chat to engaged couples about our personal and tailored service. Highlighting some of our most loved suppliers in the showroom, we were dishing out our top wedding list tips to couples, as well as giving them plenty of inspiration along the way.
A huge thank you to all of our brilliant suppliers that made the night such a huge success, and an even bigger thank you to all the wonderful couples that came and made it so fun! Until next year... (make sure you're following us on Insta to be the first to know about future showroom events)
