Britain’s first gay wedding exhibition is to take place in North London this weekend.

The Modern Life show is billed as a one-stop shop to assist couples embarking on a civil partnership. Taking place at the Islington Design Centre it will feature exhibitors including Moss Bros, Debenhams, wedding venues, financial advisors, photographers and cake makers.

Creative Director for the show, Richard Jones says the show proves the progress being made in gay rights: “the fact that we are having this exhibition is testament to the fact that the UK is leading the way for gay rights and civil liberties. There will be something for everyone.”

The exhibition has been publicised across the gay media and through more traditional outlets including posters at tube stations. Tickets cost £10 (including a £1 donation to the Elton John Foundation).
