The Affair with Wedding Fairs
The first wedding fair I ever attended was not as a bride. It was when I was 4 years married! It was the at the in Shoreditch last January and I was invited from the very lovely and very sweet Claire from . I had recently moved to London and as a wedding invitation and stationery designer, was trying to meet other wedding vendors and this seemed like a great place to start.
First off, the Truman Brewery is a great open space for events like this (I have now been there for the in February as well as the last month). Second, I was able to meet some really kind and wonderfully talented vendors such as , ,, and more.
This fair kind of lit a fire under me to actually showcase at a wedding fair myself as an exhibitor. And so I signed up to show at the Chosen Wedding Fair in March at the Islington Assembly Hall. That was booked a long time ago and I knew I wanted to do another fair before then but didn’t know which. As opposed to the US, the UK seems to have an abundance of wedding fairs of all shapes and sizes. Thankfully, I was fortunate enough to be contacted by the super talented Kelly of Lola Rose Photography who with Claire of Claire McIntyre Photography are the duo behind the Vintage Wedding Society who was hosting their very first wedding fair. I instantly liked the look they were going for, was intrigued by the venue and just felt instantly at ease with Kelly and decided to go for it.
Stay tuned for the next blog post where I share what it’s like exhibiting at a wedding fair for the first time. Dos, donts, planning, experience, and everything in between.
