VL Aesthetics Sponsor Cumbria’s Premier Wedding Show

A Cumbrian aesthetics clinic has announced it will be the headline sponsor of the county’s premier wedding show, which will have a special focus on diversity this year.

VL Aesthetics, based in Carlisle, will sponsor Cumbria’s Premier Wedding Show, which will take place on February 26 from 11am to 4pm at Carlisle Racecourse.

The show, which attracted 700 visitors last year, will focus on reflecting the diverse range of couples who get married, no matter what their race, religion, nationality, orientation, clothing size or physical ability.

It will feature around 50 exhibitors and two choreographed bridal catwalks, including models of colour and those with disabilities. 

VL Aesthetics is a medical clinic that provides a full range of face, body and laser treatments, including using state of the art technology exclusive to them in Cumbria. 

Managing director Vanessa Brown said it often worked with brides and grooms to help them feel the best they can on their special day.

Vanessa said: “As the premier aesthetics clinic in Cumbria, we decided to sponsor the Premier Cumbria Wedding Show because a bride wants to look and feel as good as they can on their special day, and at VL Aesthetics our ethos is clear, to help improve the way you look and feel without surgery.

“At VL Aesthetics, we provide our clients with the best experience from start to finish.

“From initial enquiry and consultation, through to the experience of the actual treatment and aftercare, we aim to provide exceptional service at each point in the client journey.

“Our team of highly skilled nurses, doctors and aesthetic therapists are committed to supporting our clients every step of the way; from their initial consultation right through to their desired outcome and can offer solutions to a wide range of common skin and body concerns through our comprehensive list of treatments.

“Over the last five years, we have become a well-established clinic using premium technologies, and have built a great reputation for treatment results with excellent customer service for our monthly clients.”

During the show, VL Aesthetics will be showcasing four of its top performing treatments – The Emerald Laser, Emsculpt Neo, Emsella and Dermalux – at a scaled down version of its clinic. 

As headline sponsor, it will also be offering some special prizes to attendees.

Everyone who, following on from the wedding show, purchases a package of VL Aesthetics treatments before the end of March 2023 will be entered into the prize draw to win a Tiffany bracelet.

The event will also be offering a £20,000 Wedding Giveaway, which can be won by one lucky couple on the day. 

Vanessa added: “The February wedding show will focus on diversity, with two diversity catwalks taking place.

“At VL Aesthetics we treat a diverse range of patients and clients and we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to look their best on their wedding day… after all, you’re only supposed to do it once.”

Cumbria’s Premier Wedding Show is the brainchild of event organiser Carol Milnes, of CA Events, and Carol Waggott, of Carol’s Bridal Boutique, in Carlisle. 

Lauren Lawson, Carol’s daughter and manager of Goodfellows Menswear, in Carlisle,  is the third member of the team and runs the catwalk shows on the day. 

Carol Milnes said the wedding industry in Cumbria is extremely busy at the moment, especially due to the backlog of weddings post-Covid.

“Cumbria really is ‘destination wedding’ and we’ve got such an incredible range of suppliers here, it’s just fantastic to get them all under one roof and be able to welcome brides and grooms from across the region and beyond,” she said.

“We are delighted Vanessa and VL Aesthetics are investing in our event, the sponsorship has given us the opportunity to enhance the ‘Diversity Show’ and we look forward to working with Vanessa in this partnership going forward.”
