National Wedding Show

WordPress Website & Bespoke Exhibitor Portal

We are working with Ocean Media on National Wedding Shows. They are the UK’s biggest consumer wedding shows and have been running for the past 25 years. With eight shows taking place per year in three cities nationwide – London, Birmingham and Manchester – the shows are delivering 100,000 visitors and attracting over 2,000 exhibitors per annum.

National Wedding Shows has been running for the past 25 years are and the biggest wedding shows in United Kingdom


National Wedding Show (NWS) required an end to end solution to maintain their website and integrate it with a system that allows exhibitors to access and update their business profiles themselves.

Ocean Media Group is a dynamic and progressive organisation that puts its customers and people first. They create market-leading events and digital information products that help customers succeed and in turn drive their growth.

National Wedding Show required an end to end solution to maintain their website and integrate it with a system that allows Exhibitors to login and provide their information themselves.

Ocean Media Staff would then assign proper Exhibitors to selected show and the information should show accordingly on the website.

Exhibitor Portal makes it easy to browse through number of events to modify the information and assign Exhibitors


We have created a stunning WordPress website that handles all of the information with customisable contact forms. End users can apply as Exhibitors or take part in exciting competitions.

Codeminded were the developers for relaunching one of our leading product sites, The National Wedding Show. They are now our direct key developers. Some highlights that stood out to me were their exceptional project management from their key contact. Everything executed by Codeminded is always a smooth process. They built a portal for our exhibitors to access and updated their business profiles that appear on our direct website, this portal has been received well by our exhibitors and internal team. If you have the opportunity to work with them in the future then I have no doubt you will have the same outlook as us.

Bespoke system called Exhibitor Portal which allows users to create an account directly and provide all the information about their business, so it shows accordingly on the NWS page.

Ocean Media Team can easily browse through a portfolio of exhibitors and assign them to the shows where they will appear on the biggest wedding shows in the United Kingdom.

The Portal was created in PHP Symfony and connects to WordPress via API.

Currently we are maintaining both the website and system. They encounter heavy traffic, since NWS is backed by a one million pound marketing campaign. The shows are the ultimate wedding planning and shopping experience

All Exhibitors in the system are categorised to provide reports on particiapants and share additional information on the webpage

2020 Update

In mid 2020 Codeminded was briefed to implement new and modern collage design. This was done within very limited timescales of two weeks in order to be in line with marketing campaign starting at given date.

We closely cooperated with NWS on a daily meetings monitoring the progress of the project. That mutual understanding and cooperation enabled us to implement full redesign within just one sprint.

All new Design was implemented in accordance to modern collage trends
