The Penarth Wedding Fayre – now an annual fixture on Penarth Town Council’s event calendar – aims to bring together under one roof a wide selection of independent local suppliers and service-providers who can deliver almost everything needed for a 21st century wedding, with all the trimmings.

A total of 23 businesses were taking part this year.

The event is jointly organised by Rachel Burgess of the Bridal Boutique on Victoria Bridge, John Bruno Fitness Training and Penarth Town Council which  offers The Kymin and Penarth Town Council’s HQ itself as nuptial venues.

What it’s all about. “Cariad” – the Welsh word for “Love”

Joint organiser of the Wedding Fayre was local fitness guru John Bruno

More than 20 brides-to-be had arrived before noon, ensuring that the all day event would attract the planners of at least 50 local weddings before the end of the day .

Rachel said this year’s event had been “lovely “ and was delighted that so many people wanted to use local businesses for their big day .

Apart from his wedding work , John Bruno is also behind another commercial innovation which becoming familiar on the streets of Penarth  – the “Tuc-Tuc“.

John Bruno’s little rentable 3-wheeler “tuc-tuc” vans are becoming a familiar sight around Penarth

These diminutive Italian-made three-wheeler tricycle vans are not only ideal for weaving economically and environmentally through Penarth’s traffic – but also carry magnetic display-advertising hoardings for local business on their sides – so that they’re productive even when they’re parked .

“Tuc-tuc” enthusiasts might want to know that the dark green one is called “Guiseppe”  and there’s another one called “Enzo” and a third called “Dino” .  All of them are hireable by the day.

    Careful, I thought I just read something vaguely supportive of PTC.

  2. Anne Greagsby says:

    I don’t think advertising vans parked around Penarth is a good thing. Many people can’t park near their homes as it is or park to shop at local businesses.

      Oh dear, Ms Greagsby, not another “I don’t like” post. For goodness sake give us some positive reasons to vote for you. All I’m clear about is who and what you disapprove of. Some solutions would be helpful.
