The Gay Wedding Show – Cardiff 4th October 2009

Yesterday saw the Cardiff Gay Wedding Show at the fabulous City Hall, this year proved to be one of the most exciting, vibrant and well attended show’s that Wales has ever seen.

Over 253 visitors came to the day, a fantastic increase against last year, all planning their civil partnerships as far ahead as 2012 and snapping up venues and suppliers ahead of opposite sex couples. For the second year in a row we have seen more girlz then boys through the door (57% Girlz and 43% boys).

It was also great to see couples bring their family, friends and little ones to share the experience in planning their special day.

The show presented some of the best suppliers Wales had to offer who are proactive in supporting civil partnership. Exhibitors showed True commitment and passion in helping same sex couples plan their forth coming wedding.

Gino Meriano founder of the gay wedding show says “It’s great to see these exhibitors show an alternative to companies simply trying to cash in on the pink pound without genuine consideration for gay and lesbian couples.”

The example ceremony performed by the interfaith ministers showed couples a personal and moving alternative to a register office.

Meriano continued. “I had a lot of fun surprising willing Visitors and exhibitors with filming them for my new TV channel TogetherTV.” This launches on 15th Nov 2009.

The buzz on the day was crowned by live performances creating a sophisticated sound throughout Cardiff City Hall.

Plans are already underway for the Gay Wedding Show in Wales for 2010.
