I’ve just come back down to earth after a wonderful time at the most curious wedding fair in London at the weekend and I just had to share some of the many many fantastic exhibitors creations. The fair is so carefully organised and curated by forward thinking ladies Cat, Becky and Sara and the result is a mix of talented wedding designers, both well known and emerging.
In case you missed the event here are some of my favourites…
I was really happy to be neighbours with the wonderful Giulia from On Love and Photography you might recognise one of the snaps on her table..Giulia has done my website photos as well as my wedding photos and she is an incredible and lovely photographer. We also may have demolished a delicious bottle of vino together in our excitement on the Friday after the show..so we had a lot of fun over the weekend!
Unsurprisingly I adored the intricate embroidery of Daisy Sheldon. She embroiders the sweetest details of birds and flowers onto lingerie and veils and the results are stunning.
We were all wowed by the fabulous pink (my favourite colour of course) stand of Belle and Bunty. These inspirational women have the coolest brand of modern vintage wedding dresses and their dresses were even more beautiful in real life.
I have fallen in love with the playful and enchanted designs of Clara Francis Jewellery. Whimsical and magical I think these could be worn long after your wedding day.
It was really hard to walk away from Wildflower Cakes stand…once you were there you were snared by the delicious smell of icing and the delicate watercolour style painted anemonies. I also had a sample (or two!) and it was as scrumptious as it was beautiful.
I have followed Minna’s wedding dresses for a long time and was in awe when I got to see them over the weekend. Her dresses are made from sustainable, organic and local textiles, minimising her impact on the environment. An ethos as beautiful as the dresses themselves.
My other lovely neighbour was Things by Laura . Her intricate paper flowers baffled even me..she really must have the patience of a saint! It was a joy to look at her colourful pieces of art for the weekend.
One designer who I think you’ll hear more and more about is Bobbin and Bow. Polish Karolina uses the 18th century technique ‘pajaki’ to create these incredible mixed media chandeliers. Perfect wedding decor as well as something to keep in your home forever.
This gorgeous floral arrangement is by the talented Vervain Flowers. Described as ‘orchestrated chaos’ her flower arrangements will have you transfixed!
I traveled to London on the train so was limited to what I could carry. I also wanted to keep my space simple and clutter free. Therefore I used fresh flowers and dotted them around my wall with the odd image and my bridal collection laid out in front. It was wonderful to meet so many lovely bride-to-be’s and their family and friends and I had the best time chatting to you all.
Good luck with all your wedding planning bride-to-be’s and wedding suppliers…hope to see you there next year!
