Hitch-free Wedding Expo
GRAFTON'S Wedding Expo went off yesterday without a hitch and organisers say they couldn't be happier with the crowds and the steady stream of positive feedback.
One of four organisers Carol Davies said she was "over the moon".
"I've been pretty hectic all morning. I thought there was an enormous amount of people coming through the doors," Mrs Davies said.
"We think everybody's been happy. Between my husband and myself we've both spent a lot of time here; it's all come together in the end."
Mrs Davies, from Something Special Weddings, said organ- ising the Expo had been a group effort and noted how the committee had pulled together to make good use of their individual strengths to make it all happen.
"There's no way I could have done it all by myself," Mrs Davies said.
Fellow organisers Sharon Todd, Tim Ellem and Adam Hourigan all played an important role in making the day a huge success.
Mrs Todd, a marriage cele- brant based in Grafton, said she also felt this year was an improvement on the last one, with more exhibitors and bigger numbers passing through the doors.
"We have over 40 exhibitors this year," Mrs Todd said.
"I'm very, very pleased. We've had lots of positive feedback, especially from the men about the Harley, the Hummer and the awesome Chevy 55 out the front.
"It's the first time we've had the cars and they've been a hit."
Mrs Todd said she had also been thrilled to hear from local businesses who may not have attended the Expo but felt they benefited from it anyway.
"It's so wonderful to think there's been a flow-on effect to the local economy," she said.
