A beautiful sunny tropical inspired Wedding Showcase for couples looking for outdoor wedding inspiration or alternative ideas and something a little unique.
The wedding showcase was held at the stunning Bawdon Lodge Farm that is in the heart of the Charnwood Forest near to Loughborough, Ashby de la Zouch, Birmingham and the counties of Leicestershire, Warwickshire, Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire and the East Midlands and West Midlands.
