Brisbane’s third Same Same Weddings Expo will be held at Brisbane Powerhouse on May 5, with free entry and all couples warmly welcomed.

The Same Same Weddings Expo will run from 10am to 3pm and is hosted by Paddington Publications, the publishers of Brisbane Bride Magazine and Australia’s first same-sex wedding magazine Same Same Weddings.

“We had so many couples join us at the previous expos and we received some great feedback from vendors and attendees alike,” Julz Fullerton from Paddington Publications said.

“The attendees shared how accepting and inclusive the vendors were, which is the whole purpose of the event.”

One attendee stated, “It was incredibly exciting to wander around a wedding expo not feeling judged or overwhelmed. Wonderfully organised.”

Brisbane Powerhouse is Queensland’s home for contemporary culture, a magnificent power station of the 1920s reborn as an arts centre on the Brisbane River.

The free expo will be held over several levels of Brisbane Powerhouse and will showcase the best of South East Queensland’s wedding industry.

Couples can chat with more than 50 vendors about their wedding plans in a relaxing, yet vibrant and all-inclusive environment.

There will be entertainment throughout the day and couples can enjoy the restaurants and bars within the precinct. There is onsite parking and great access to public transport, including the New Farm Park Ferry Terminal.

Couples can just turn up on the day or register via the Eventbrite Link to receive a free Expo Bag (available to the first 200 registered couples) and go into the draw to win their wedding featured in an upcoming online edition of Same Same Weddings magazine.

On arrival, couples can enter the draw to win fabulous prizes including a Wedding Band up to the value of $1000, thanks to Argyle Jewellers or a Kingfisher Bay Resort, Fraser Island voucher for two people.

The voucher includes two nights’ accommodation in a Wallum Lagoon Hotel Room, return passenger ferry transfers ex River Heads and daily buffet breakfast in Maheno Restaurant. Terms and conditions apply.
