Chosen Wedding Fair

On a very windy Saturday in early March I went along to the Chosen Wedding Fair at Islington Assembly Hall in London. I was welcomed by a fleet of white taxis with beautiful pink ribbons tied to them. Two friendly guys welcomed me to the event and provided me with a lovely goody bag with a bride to be sticker!

The venue was full of a range of exhibitors for all aspects of creating the perfect wedding. There were a variety of wedding photographers, decorations, hair accessories, photobooths, entertainment and floral arrangements, each hosted beautiful displays promoting their products and services.

One of the first exhibitors I spoke to was The Handmade Favour who produce beautiful dried flowers in rose gold frames that can be provided as wedding favours for guests. Every frame is unique with a different flower and available in a range of colours. When I arrived home I took a look through their website and saw that they provide a range of options for wedding favours and also home décor. They also produce beautiful envelopes with gorgeous floral patterns.

I love a photobooth so when I spotted a beautiful green backdrop with neon pink sign I had to pop by and say hello to the exhibitors! Prop Ltd provide ideal photobooths for events, enabling guests to have printouts or produce boomerang GIFs to share with friends and family. It seems like such a fun addition to any wedding or party and I loved the modern neon light look against the lush green backdrop.

Parrot & Pineapple are wedding photographers. I met with Rowan, of Parrot & Pineapple, on the day who was incredibly friendly and welcome. I was drawn to their beautiful images that are bold and colourful with a relaxed, documentary feel to them. I looked through a couple of gorgeous photo albums of recent weddings and their website is certainly worth a look if you are looking for your wedding photographer!

I have been on the lookout for a beautiful hairband or tiara as I would like to have my hair down on our wedding day which is my usual look. I spotted a few exhibitors at this particular wedding fair which included beautiful pearls that I would love to incorporate into my outfit. I find pearls so soothing as I always think of the sea when I look at them or wear them. I found a couple of wedding accessory suppliers at the Chosen Wedding Fair including Clare Lloyd Couture Bridal Accessories and Debbie Carlisle.

Loops and Letters provide a wonderful calligraphy service including envelope addressing, place cards and signage as well as custom orders such as wedding vows and menus. I absolutely love their place names written on pieces of driftwood and on gorgeous coloured stones. Definitely a unique idea which can be adapted to any wedding colours or themes.
