Couples planning to tie the knot will be heading to Rochdale Wedding Show in 2020 when the event returns on Sunday, 20 September 2020.

For 2020, the popular show moves to Mercure Norton Grange Hotel and Spa as its current home, Rochdale Town Hall, prepares to close for major restoration.

Organisers Rochdale Borough Council are planning another strong line-up for next autumn, bringing around 35 of the borough's creative, stylish and inspiring suppliers to the Norton Grange alongside breath-taking catwalk shows, live music and more. Outside there'll be a collection of contemporary wedding cars as well as a few surprises.

Earlier this year the event saw over 450 people through the door looking for inspiration for their big day, with local companies exhibiting the latest collections and trends in bridal wear, formal menswear and everything in between - from flowers and classic cars, to photography, venue dressing, catering, cakes, entertainment, makeup, jewellery and decorations.

Next year you'll also get chance to see Norton Grange's recently updated thermal suite, beauty treatment rooms, heated pool and function rooms, enjoying prosecco and cake in the bistro while you contemplate your options.

'Another stunning local venue'

The 4-star Mercure Norton Grange Hotel and Spa, just over 3 miles from Rochdale town centre is set in its own landscaped grounds with panoramic views over the Pennine hills.

Events organiser Sue Taylor said:

"The upcoming restoration of the town hall presents the opportunity to move this really successful event to another stunning local venue. Rochdale Wedding Show is always the ultimate afternoon out for anyone looking to peruse their options ahead of the big day - especially if they're looking for something a little different. It will be another fabulous showcase for superb local companies and for the Mercure Norton Grange Hotel and Spa – one of Greater Manchester's most prestigious wedding destinations."
