Bridalbuyer.com is owned by Ocean Media Group Limited (OMG), the publishers of Bridal Buyer magazine - the main source of bridal industry news in the UK and Ireland - and organisers of The Harrogate Bridal Show (formally known as BBEH), the UK’s largest bridal trade show.
Bridal Buyer is the industry’s number one communication vehicle, bringing together news, views, UK style indicators and international on-the-spot reportage. Bridal Buyer magazine is published six times a year and the perfectly-groomed business partner for companies and individuals with an interest in all things bridal.
The Harrogate Bridal Show (formally known as BBEH) is held annually in Harrogate in September. Widely acknowledged as the biggest and by far the most important of all industry events in northern Europe, The Harrogate Bridal Show leads the way - as it has done for over thirty years - attracting buyers from across the UK and internationally. With over 250 exhibitors showcasing more than 350 collections, The Harrogate Bridal Show attracts around 3000 unique visitors each year.
London Bridal Week is set to become the first bridal ‘super-show’ in the UK, bringing collections from the world’s leading designers and manufacturers under one roof. Timed to be the first major event on the international calendar, it is a fusion of large-scale trade fair, fashion show, and educational seminar programme. The newly created event will replace The London Bridal Show, previously held at Olympia in March, and will be co-located with well-established luxury buying event, White Gallery – giving retailers the opportunity to source collections at a variety of styles and price points in just one visit.
White Gallery was created in 2009, to give high-end bridal designers a platform to present their upcoming collection to the world’s most discerning retailers and press. Nine years on, it is firmly established as the ultimate destination for designer brands, luxury retailers and the fashion press. The next edition of White Gallery will be held at ExCel London - an award-winning exhibition venue in the heart of London, and widely regarded as one of the best in the UK. Co-located with the newly created London Bridal Week, retailers will have the comprehensive choice of being at the UK’s largest bridal buying event, alongside the intimate buying environment of White Gallery.
Ocean Media Group is committed to the bridal industry with a very strong wedding and bridal portfolio and a specialised team of professionals who aim to provide the best service possible to their clients.
