New Era for Pure Bride

Well, it’s been an exciting couple of months as Pure Bride transitioned to new management!

We have been working tirelessly to get up to speed and put together a 2019 offering for our vendors, and couples! Our Expo and Magazine are scheduled for the 20th of October 2019, and we couldn’t be more excited for the year to come.

We will be refreshing the brand, introducing a heap more online content and material, as well as curating jaw-dropping and inspiring editorial features for our annual publication. We are adding new vendors to our online directory, and looking out for the best new wedding suppliers to feature as part of Pure Bride. Our media kit will be uploaded shortly through our Vendors page.
We thank you immensely for your patience over this period, and looking forward to a great year for Pure Bride.
