THE Big Sheep will be hosting its first ever wedding fair in September and are asking brides and grooms in North Devon to save the date.

The event, organised by Weddings by Claire and Devon Wedding Fairs, will have more than 60 exhibitors for brides and grooms-to-be on Sunday, September 21.

And the hosts have already booked in a second fair to run on Sunday, March 8, 2015 in the Ewetopia Arena and an adjoining marquee.

Claire Hooper, of Weddings by Claire, said: “We were looking for something different from the everyday romantic wedding venue, somewhere that was completely fun, a little off the wall, with great flexible space to create an inspiring event for the growing market of Devon and Cornwall brides to access with ease.

“Most importantly we wanted somewhere that would work with us to deliver the best show in the region.

“As soon as we saw The Ewetopia Arena, at The Big Sheep, that was it, we were there.

“Bo Peep brides eat your heart out – as this show is going to be bursting at the seams with the brilliant, the bold and the beautiful for weddings.”

Entry to the show and attraction is free for brides and grooms, and friends and family can benefit from discounted entry to the park.
