In february 08 I was representing (the bespoke art company I run in my spare time) at The National Wedding Show in Olympia, London, UK, for 3 days.
    The national wedding show (see is the UK’s number one wedding show, for couples planning to get hitched. From over the moon to the honeymoon, from your dream dress to the world’s most romantic resorts – there’s nothing quite like the National Wedding Show to help you make your big day everything you’ve imagined. It’s all laid out for you under one roof – dresses, groomswear, occasionwear, accessories, photography, flowers, honeymoon destinations, venues, cakes and much, much more. It’s a brilliantly useful, inspirational and fun day out. So, Portrait Xpress exhibited for the first time there this year in February 08. They had a stand where they displayed a number of examples of their hand-painted wedding portrait paintings. A real buzz was generated at the stand, and dozens of couples were standing around, imagining what a portrait painting might look like of their wedding day. A number of people asked about our Portrait Xpress gift vouchers, which can be used … and could even be put on the wedding Bridal List of ‘wished for’ items for the bride and groom. A competition was also run on the stand which was very popular, and one lucky couple won a free painting. There was also interest from some of the Uk Wedding press.
