Tell us a little about yourself, Emma
I’ve worked for Well Met now for two years as a Conference and Events Officer. Previously I was the Wedding Coordinator at Rudding Park in Harrogate. I love everything about weddings so I’m incredibly excited to bring that expertise to my role at Well Met!
So what is The Big Day?
The Big Day is a citywide wedding fair organised by Leeds Hotels and Venues Association to give brides the opportunity to view multiple wedding venues in Leeds. On top of the thrill of exploring possible venues and options for their perfect day, brides that visit two or more venues will also be given the chance to win some amazing prizes.
What can we expect from Well Met?
Well Met’s wedding fair will be taking place in the beautiful Great Hall in our amazing James Graham building up on Leeds Beckett’s Headingley Campus. Guests can meet me along with Alexandra to get a feel for what a wedding celebration in the James Graham building is like.
In the Acre Room, there’ll be a Bridal Runway show running throughout the day with dresses from the fantastic Louise Perry Bridal. We’re also running our own prize draw – if you book your wedding with us on the day you can be in with a chance of winning up to £1,000 off your wedding package.
What does a Well Met wedding look like?
We’ve put together some great, flexible packages to make sure you can have the day you’ve dreamed of, whatever your budget. We’ve got great links with a number of brilliant local suppliers for photography, makeup, music, lights, flowers and cakes etc. so we can help take some of the stress out of your planning and make your celebration memorable for you and your guests.
All our weddings take place in the James Graham building. It’s a beautiful Edwardian Grade II listed building which sits at the head of 100 acres of parkland so it’s brilliant for photos!
Who’s going to be exhibiting in the Great Hall?
You’ll be able to meet some of our favourite suppliers – we like to support local suppliers, including a number of Leeds Beckett alumni, who offer great quality without the huge price tags. There’s Stems for flowers, Ambience Venue Styling as well as The Traditional Sweet Shop and Louise Perry Bridal. Live wedding band, The Metrognomes, will also be performing for a bit of atmosphere while you’re there.
