Scores of people, including more than 30 brides-to-be, descended on the event last SUnday despite a last minute change of venue from Holywells Park.

Everything a couple needs to tie the knot were on display, from wedding cakes and dresses to photographers and caterers.

Organiser Sharon Topple, from STE Wedding and Independent Celebrant, said the event had been a huge success - and was planning to return to Quay Place again in September

“We had a lovely flow of people on the day,” she said.

“I felt overwhelmed by the support from all the exhibitors.

“The fayre had a really nice atmosphere, to be among so many supportive people was amazing. The sun was shining, people were smiling - we couldn’t have asked for more.”

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
