At the beginning of November I exhibited at the Nostalgic Wedding Fair run by the Vintage Parade, held at Winchester Guildhall. It was a fair aimed at Vintage and Alternative weddings, with wedding vendors selected who offer something a little different from the norm. There were local wedding suppliers from all around Hampshire, offering wedding photography, unique jewellery and hair accessories, scrummy cakes and tarts, creative floristry, and lots of quirky ideas, stationary and styling for your wedding day. All day there was entertainment from the lovely Amy Baker, singing nostalgic tunes, and Rock n Roll from the Voodoo Cats. It was lovely to meet all the future brides, grooms and their friends and family who came to see me on my stand.
Here’s a few photos from the day. Firstly here’s my stand,with my own take on vintagey styling; its not all about shabby chic and muted colours- I went for a bright floral tablecloth and some faux grass whic I think better suits my colourful photos and branding.
There were lots of pretty things to see, but my favourite was this amazing vintage tiara from Cherished. A real statement piece for a vintage bride. If you see something you like, head on over to the Nostalgic wedding fair page. to find all the other suppliers.
Chloe and Alex travelled down from Scotland to get married in the historic venue of Winchester Guildhall. Despite the grandeur of the setting they made it clear they wanted the day to be light hearted and relaxed and have photos that captured their friends and families enjoying the day. They had clearly put a lot of effort into making it an enjoyable event, with table football, big Jenga and connect 4, balloons and piñatas and an amazing band for the evening do. (All interesting things which photographers love too!)
One of my favourite parts of the day is the speeches, when I actually get to hear the real juice on the people I have been trailing around all day. It was a really lovely story to hear how Chloe went off all over the world after they left university and how they have both ended up together still- clearly it was meant to be! Chloe & Alex, many congratulations and my very best wishes for the future.
