Following the huge success of the first A Most Curious Wedding Fair back in April 2011, the gang are back and heading to York Hall in London on 31st March 2012.
A Most Curious Party started life in Bethnal Green, so where better to hold their first London Fair than York Hall, situated in the middle of the uber cool, fashion conscious and edgy East End. The Most Curious team are wedding obsessed and feel there is a definite need for a fair that represents the trend aware and vintage loving couple. With over 30 exhibitors, expect wedding suppliers that share their ethos and will bring both chic city and country styles, along with the classic, the decadent, the quirky and the fun.
Don't miss the fashion show, showcasing vintage and vintage inspired attire for the fashion forward bride and oh-so-often forgotten groom. As well as the best vintage hair and make up stylists and live bands, from forties style starlets to sixties Beatles cover bands or DJ's who offer something a little different. Are you a DIY couple? Be sure to attend the 'how-to' workshops, with a class on making paper craft bouquets or cute cookie favours.
We also have our 1940s waitresses in their pinnies and pincurls serving you brews from the Most Curious Tea and Cake Stand, keeping you refreshed - in a vintage way of course!
A Most Curious Wedding Fair is a truly unique experience for the bride and groom to be, event organiser Rebecca tells us why:
"The Most Curious Wedding Fair is different because I just don't think there is another wedding fair out there which caters simply for the bride who loves the idea of a wedding that is expressive, on trend, fun and beautiful in it's own way. There are wedding fairs that are tailored towards vintage fans, towards luxury and high end, towards the mass produced and conventional but I feel there is a need for a wedding fair that is for the bride who is DIY loving, vintage aware and fashion forward and most simply just wants 'cool stuff' at their wedding!
It encourages brides to add their own homemade elements into the day, we have hand picked suppliers giving interactive 'how-to' workshops on how to make 100 cookies as your favours or how to put together a paper craft bouquet that is subtle but innovative. There will also be something for the grooms, chic suits made by current edgy designers as well as vintage pieces and a wet shave barber!
Our suppliers are handpicked to ensure they offer an open minded, friendly, vintage or artisan type service - such as Tara Starlet and Vivien of Holloway who have 40s and 50s wedding night lingerie and wedding dresses respectively, Charlotte Staniland who designs and makes avante garde, beautiful bridal shoes, Belinda Worsley who makes button hole flowers from reclaimed silks and DC Bouquets who creates bouquets from vintage jewellery.
We were told that the atmosphere was so great at the Most Curious Fair, not something you usually feel at a wedding fair where it can be a little panicky, couples picking up brochures because they just feel overwhelmed. We strive to just make the day relaxing and fun with live music and entertainers, fashion shows and ice cream vans outside and cocktail tasting inside! We dress the tea and cake room like it's a garden party and just generally want to make the couples feel like we 'get' their style.
The greatest compliment we could get is to have a bride or groom say they would like their wedding to be like an element of the show, that is what we hope for."
Join the team at York Hall, London between 11am & 5pm on 31st March 2012. Entry is £3 and £2 for Brides to Be. For more information visit vintage-wedding-fair.co.uk
