Missed the Fair? Don't worry you can catch up
My daughters and I (one of whom is getting married next year and one of whom is planning a renewal of vows ceremony), attended the Vintage and Handmade Wedding Fair on Sunday 18th August, 2013.
Sadly, it was only a one day event. However, you can still benefit from the list of vendors. Note Saturday, February 15, 2014 is the date of the next event.
Cakes, Sweets & Treats Vintage Flair provided delicious high tea which was greatly appreciated by all. So much more elegant and appropriate than a take-away coffee and a quick mass produced snack. Do check out their website. They offer hire of tea party china and a fabulous menu of old fashioned goodies. They even offer dairy and gluten free options.
Janine will work with you to create a cake that suits your needs.
Gillian Bell Cake Girl - Gillian uses local, organic produce in her cakes and sources eggs, flour, cream and butter straight from the farmers. In a postage stamp-sized garden, she grows a small range of organic fruits and edible flowers for cakes, and sources seasonal fruits and flowers from organic growers. She uses quality Callebaut Belgian couverture chocolate and bakes cakes that meet a wide range of dietary needs and lifestyle choices.
Pureness-Essity Gifts offer delightful living gifts designed to bring unity, peace, harmony and a love of life to your special event. Olive trees are available in a variety of packaging. Other plants can be arranged.
Conna Kelly displayed some vintage and vintage inspired jewellery. She loves creating pieces that make you feel like you're wearing a treasure.The highest quality materials possible are used for each piece in a quest to tailor pieces to reflect the client's individual taste and ultimately become an original heirloom.
You can either choose materials from the existing collection, or incorporate something personal to you, like your grandmother's brooch or bracelet. I love this idea.
Cut a Rug DJ If a vintage themed event is your thing, then you will want your entertainment to complement that style. Cut a Rug can DJ your wedding or event using vinyl and turntables, combining this with the modern technology of an extensive digital music library. This provides you with a classic looking set up, utilising the best professional equipment available, along with access to a practically endless choice of music.
I'm so glad I didn't have to choose a photographer. They all had wonderful displays. Some had cute props for guests to use.

Jacqui M Floral Design offers a complimentary 1 hour session to discuss your needs in her beautiful studio. She also has lots of photos on her website which I find useful.

Tussy Mussy Sarah creates fabric bouquets and accessories from luxurious fabrics such as silk and taffeta, then signature vintage doily flowers are added. Next items such as vintage buttons, beads, jewellery, feathers and good luck charms are added. She also uses the 'language of flowers' theme made popular by the Victorians to add fabric flowers with meanings. What a lovely way to incorporate "something old" that has memories for you.
Cute accessories to go with your fabric bouquet.
