We wanted the fair to have the feel of something very informal - we go to a fair amount of wedding fairs which seem to be quite stressful for the brides attending - we attempted for this to be very relaxed for both bride and exhibitor!
Venue dressing company Love by Design Weddings (www.facebook.com/lovebydesignweddings) brought along their beach themed items while the girls from Happily Ever Afters shared their knowledge of cheese by bring a selection of local cheeses as part of their rustic cheese cake (www.happilyeverafters.co.uk)
By Arrangement Florist (www.byarrangementflorist.com) - suppliers of flowers to the Yenton, exhibited a simplistic but beautiful selection of their hand bouquets While The Groomsman, who provide a brilliant pre-wedding service to grooms brought along their hand-made poker table to discuss their 'male grooming' and men's club) (www.facebook.com/thegroomsmanuk)
Stunning dress designer Kimberley Stone (www.kimberleystonedesign.co.uk) brought along one of her handmade dresses and Isabels Bridal and Groom provided us with some Groomswear for the gents! (www.isobelsbridalandgroom.co.uk)
On 26th February 2017 we organised our very first wedding fair at the beautiful Yenton Hotel in Bournemouth.
Matt and Thom at the Yenton have been good to us since we started our business so we thought we would return the favour and help them out - but getting a selection of fantastic suppliers together for a wedding fair!
The fair had a number of new Dorset wedding business' in attendance - Paper Pretty Dorset brought a stunning selection of stationery with them (www.facebook.com/paperprettydorset) and Peanut and Gremlin, who provide children's wedding favours, wow'd us with their brightly coloured crayon gifts (www.facebook.com/peanut13andgremlin12)
Simon Allen Photography attended, chatting with brides about the quality service he can offer brides (saweddingphotography.co.uk) and the Yenton's very own beautician Beverley also attended with a selection of products available for that special pre-wedding beauty session. Outside the Yenton was the beautiful pink wedding transport provided by Superwed (www.superwed.co.uk)
Finally, Primo Parties' very own Donna, entertained the visitors with her vocal entertainment - available to hire individually (www.sammiemusic.co.uk) and as part of a yet unnamed acoustic duo, Donna was one of the stars of the day!
With over 25 brides coming through the doors and bookings for many of our exhibitors - we don't think this will be the last Yenton wedding fair - and watch this space, as we might have another fair to announce in the coming weeks!
