It must be bell ringing practise at my village church this evening… I love it!
I got really excited when I saw the Tipi’s by Peak Tipi’s coming into view as I drove down the driveway. Primrose (my dog) was also getting really excited in the back of the car, but because she could see lots of sheep!
We both really enjoyed the fair. There was a good mixture of things to see and in the most gorgeous setting!
I came away feeling really inspired and met some really great suppliers and would like to introduce you to a few of my favourites (click on the images to take you through to their websites).
This is a fantastic service by Oliver Appleby, where he will turn up at your wedding and discreetly set up his Cupcake station. He will then start serving your guests, letting them choose the flavour of the sponge, the filling, the frosting and finally the toppings. I genuinely love this idea for a bit of evening entertainment and to keep everyone topped up with food! I think it would especially appeal to any children at your wedding. Also, the cakes are delicious! I tried a Vanilla sponge with lemon filling and vanilla frosting. Yum!
It was her stand of Flower Crowns that drew me to Nadia’s stand. It wasn’t until I got up really close that I realised they were fake flowers! It is really incredible how convincing they are. After our photoshoot with Cat Hepple a few weeks ago, I am quite keen on wearing flowers in my hair. But some people have warned me to be careful which flowers I pick, because I don’t want a head of dead petals by the time we sit down for the wedding breakfast. The idea of fake flowers was a bit off-putting, but when I saw these it made me think about the benefits… Firstly they will look perfectly pruned all day and all night! Secondly, I can match them exactly to any chosen colour scheme. Thirdly, I could order it early enough to use in any hair trials or dress fittings. And finally, it will last forever as a keepsake from the day!
I also spotted this milk urn on Nadia’s stand. I love this look for rustic wedding styling! Especially with those Hydrangeas (my favourite!)
I don’t know why but I find the word ‘artisan’ really appealing. Does anyone else agree? I suppose I feel it is a good word to describe my approach to our wedding. Emily flowers are all grown either at home or in the UK. Her display at the Pop Up Wedding Village didn’t just look beautiful, but smelled incredible! I love the wild garden look about all of the arrangements, it is a look I would love to emulate in our Tipi reception.
After the fair, and after a long walk in the rain, we popped into the cafe for a quick drink and a piece of cake… I couldn’t resist sharing this with you because it was the perfect end to a fab day!
Are there any other Wedding Fairs I should be going to this summer? I am based in the Midlands but also go home to Yorkshire regularly so please let me know of any you recommend in either area.
