An event to celebrate the contribution Thornbury makes to the wedding and celebration industry.
The event will comprise stalls in St Mary Centre and each stallholder will be a local business that offers a product or service affiliated with the wedding/celebration industry.
In addition, we anticipate having a Wedding Trail people will follow during the day. Local businesses can advertise their products and services via an attractive window display, perhaps accompanied by a promotional event.
The overall objective is for the town to become a large, vibrant, artisan wedding celebration – something different to the normal wedding fayre in a hotel or conference centre.

We raised a total of £327.65 for Brain Tumour Support, this included money donated by Mo Mac and Me who played outside Wildings, despite the cold weather, plus £50 from Liz at Finishing Touches from her cake sale.
Many thanks to all those who donated, the fabulous prize was won by Lesley Taylor, the winning ticket was sold by the Wool Stop.
Many thanks for all the shops and businesses who took part in the Late Night Shopping evening.
A special Thank you to both of the bands who stayed out and played music despite having lost feeling in their fingers, it was appreciated by all those who attended the event.
In 2016 Thornbury Chamber decided to discontinue the fairs for a number of different reasons - some personal, some operational.
A key factor was the loss of parking for traders' vehicles at the former South Gloucestershire Council offices on Castle Street.
