Not every bride dreams of a traditional run-of-the-mill white wedding, and many find the offerings at wedding fairs and expos somewhat generic or not suited to their particular tastes. These days the unique is celebrated, vintage is a lifestyle choice and every bride deserves the opportunity to have their personal wedding vision brought to life; enter Debs Ivelja and Rebecca Price, creators of A Very Vintage Wedding Fair.
Debs is a lover of weddings and all things vintage and Bec a Retro and Vintage Wedding Planner Specialist - together they recognised a gap in the wedding market and created A Very Vintage Wedding Fair. Now in its second year the upcoming curated event will showcase the talents of 34 local and specialist exhibitors bringing you original ideas, exquisite designs and vintage treasures.
You won't find any corporations or mass produced wedding gowns here, but you will find hard working and inspired exhibitors with a passion for vintage and a dedication to what they do. Exhibitors who are there to help create the wedding of your dreams, tailoring to your individual ideas, sizes and concepts - be it a 1940's war bride look by Silver Sixpence or an old Hollywood Glamour style from Jennifer Gifford.
The fair will feature everything you need to create the individualised wedding of your dreams, exhibiting bridal party fashion and accessories, flowers, transport, video and photography, cakes and celebrants. Look out for gorgeous flower girl tutus and accessories from Venice & Me and divine cake creations from Gillian Bell cake girl.
A Very Vintage Wedding Fair is an inspired concept and this exclusive event is set to help make your dreams of a unique and individualised wedding a reality. Held on the 16th and 17th February from 10.00am - 4.00pm at the Bleeding Heart Gallery (166 Ann St, City), admission is $10 with tickets at the door, but grooms are admitted for free.
