The UK Wedding Event was setup by husband and wife team Rob and Emma O’Neill as a concept in the early part of 2014 and has gone from strength to strength ever since. 

It’s fair to say they didn’t do it the easy way either kicking off the business with a major show at York Racecourse in the October of the same year, with an event featuring over 100 exhibitors and attracting in excess of 1000 visitors. 

Rob and Emma like to think big with the wedding fayres that they operate while still maintaining the values associated with a small family company, putting the people they work with first The UK Wedding Eventat all times. 

They also support young people with our catwalk shows having forged a strong relationship with SLP College as well as offering complimentary stands to charities including Martin House Hospice. 

The couple’s motivations for creating The UK Wedding Event can be traced back to Emma’s desire for a change in career direction after 20 years working as a primary school teacher coupled with the impending arrival of our first son which fuelled an ambition to work together too! 

Since those early days more intimate wedding fayres have come along with a number of leading venues calling on their services and expertise to organise events for them.

They all approached us having seen first-hand the results we were delivering, turning previously poorly attended wedding fayre into great successes, often topping the 500 mark. 

The Crown Hotel in Harrogate and Mercure York Fairfield Manor Hotel were early partners but more and more wedding co-ordinators are now calling on our services with The Craiglands Hotel in Ilkley and The Hotel du Vin in York and Harrogate two of the newer additions to their portfolio.

If you would like to book tickets to any of their events, these can be ordered easily via their website

The UK Wedding Event is more than just a wedding fayre company, they also offer support to other wedding businesses with marketing assistance and website design all available to their clients.
