Make planning your big day a breeze with access to Geelong and the Surf Coasts best wedding suppliers.

When you first start planning your wedding, the list of things involved in the big day can feel seemingly endless. From the venue, photographer, food, rentals, music, photo booth and more; not to mention what you will wear for the big day — the list of things to book or buy and decisions to be made goes on and on.

While there are tonnes of magazines and blogs out there, there’s something special about face-to-face interactions with those playing a part in your big day. If you’re hoping to make more of a personal connection with those involved, be more efficient with your planning efforts (and money), or you’re just keen for a fun day out with your bride tribe (or groom squad), the Geelong Wedding Expo has you covered with the very best of what the local wedding industry has to offer.

Returning for its 24th year and conveniently popping up at the Geelong Racecourse once again, The Geelong Wedding Expo is a not-to-be-missed event if you’re tying the knot somewhere in this stunning region that we call our home.

Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around the region here.

Taking over the huge racecourse on Sunday, 21 May, the much-loved annual event is bringing together a bunch of local wedding vendors, for one day only. This is your chance to meet all the essential peeps that could help make your special day spectacular. There’ll be wedding gowns, stylists, celebrants, florists, caterers, photographers, videographers and more, all conveniently located in one location.

Expect representatives from venues like Bellevue Receptions, Inverleigh Hotel, Mt Duneed Estate, The Sands Torquay, and The Ivory Pavillion; some of Geelong’s best makeup artists like Jessica Kate Makeup, Makeup by Tania Ferguson and Crew Faced Makeup Artistry; a bunch of talented celebrants to get to know including Angele Jones, Ashlee Glenn, Della Katessen and Sandra celebrant as well as event florists like A Natural Bunch, Blooms Rock and several vendors to help with décor.

Browse dresses and suits from the likes of And The Veil, Foreverness Bridal Boutique, Bernice Fashions, and Lords Design; peruse your transport options like Luxury Limo Hire, and Mustang & Co; and find someone special to capture your special day with photographers and videographers like Angry Chicken Media, Duuet wedding photography & film, Gaelle Le Berre photography, Little Cine Films, and Still Muse photography. 

There will even be music and DJs like Dy Dave, Fiction Cover Band and Stage Door Band and a whole bunch of food and drink vendors for all your cocktail, dinner and dessert requirements including Spoke Ice Cream, Miss Fizz, The Cannoli Project, Beat it Frost it, Laura Creative Cakes, Workers Geelong BBQ restaurant and Love Kate Cake Co. 

You’ll even come across vendors you completely forgot you would even need when planning your perfect wedding day including Geelong Fireworks, personal trainers from Team McLean Fitness Club, and environmentally friendly confetti from Ballarat Ecofetti. That’s barely half of it though, expect to find so, so much more on the day! 

From the dress to the honeymoon, you can seriously turn your vision into reality, narrow down choices and priorities, and still have fun planning your wedding—all in one place, in one afternoon.

While attending a traditional bridal showcase might not be for everyone, The Geelong Wedding Expo promises an upbeat yet relaxed experience outside, where you can have a chinwag with all the aforementioned vendors without the pressure of harsh lights, take in the stunning fashion show, indulge in the best street eats from local food trucks, and chill out to some great live music. There’s even more than $10K in prizes to be won on the day.

Tickets are on sale now.

The Geelong Wedding Expo takes over the Geelong Racecourse on Sunday, 21 May from 10am-2pm. For a full list of participating vendors, visit the website here. General Admission tickets can be purchased online here, with limited tickets on the door on the day.
