“Headliner provides brides, grooms and wedding planners with the easiest and quickest way to book live entertainment, and this year we exhibited at the National Wedding Show at London Olympia for the first time. With a team made up of experienced event and music professionals, we are used to networking, booking and promoting world-class music. But this was a new stage for us, so we were a bit nervous. That’s why we decided to go in full blast in true Headliner style, and to our surprise and delight we ended up winning Best Newcomer!
Here’s a bit about our first National Wedding Show experience:
Having seen some of the amazing stands people have created in the past we were inspired to push the envelope and put together a great concept for our first ever exhibition stand. Weddings are all about celebrating. It’s a joyous event and it’s a day where people have fun. What we provide, exceptionally talented musicians and DJs, adds to that experience.
Unfortunately our stand wasn’t quite big enough to bring in and showcase all the hundreds of acts on our platform (one floor might have done it), so we decided to put the spotlight on the visitors instead! We rocked up with a massive bag of inflatable instruments and props, ready to make everyone a Headliner for a day. We set up a photo corner on our stand, where anyone could pick up their instrument, tiara or veil of choice before posing in the limelight.
We had a great response, and people seemed to be having fun (and so did we!). One little girl liked it so much that she didn’t want to put the inflatable pink rock guitar back in the bag (who would?), so we gave it to her. Seeing her walk away with the guitar held jubilant above her head made our day.
Our competition to win a wedding band also went down a storm, with a staggering amount of people putting their names on the list. The winners for best newcomer will be announced 2nd November.
We had an amazing three days meeting brides, grooms, bridesmaids, and wedding planners, all hunting for the perfect suppliers to create a dream wedding.
