Supporting wedding professionals in the Hunter for 10 years

Hunter Wedding Specialists

10 years & going strong

Hunter Wedding Specialists is a group of the area’s leading wedding industry businesses who was formed in 2008 as a not for profit referral/networking association designed to present quality bridal expos that will provide prospective brides and grooms with all the information and help they need in planning their wedding.

Hunter Wedding Specialists has been formed as an association (a non profit organisation) with the sole intention of bringing together businesses that cater for the various aspects of the wedding industry.  By pooling funds, all members, small, medium and large, have equal opportunity to participate in our bridal expos and advertise on our website.

Expos

The group presents three (3) bridal expo per year [1st in early January 2nd late April and 3rd late August] at various locations.  With limits on exhibitors per category and a wide diversity of categories we strive to present a well-balanced expos for the brides.

At each of the expos during the year we give the registered brides the opportunity to participate and win 1 of 2 $1,000.00 prizes drawn on the day.

In the early years it was hard work getting the exhibitors for some of the categories, but in recent times we now have waiting list for a lot of the categories.  As all members are equal in all aspects, each exhibitor pay the same fees to exhibit and are provided with the same space in which to do their presentations.

The group in recent years has used the services of the Wespac Rescue Helicopter volunteers at our expos and in return for the wonderful work done by the volunteers we donate 20% of the door taking to their organisation.

Annual Directory

Each year during November we compile and print our annual directory. Every member for a fee $65.00 is allocated 1/3 of a page of the A5 directory which is distributed at all of our expos for the year and used by members as a networking tool.
