The Ultimate Wedding Affair: A Traditional & Vintage Show
Morning, loves! I hope that you’re really well – what are you getting up to today?
For today’s feature we’re fast forwarding all the way to next January for wedding fair season (we really aren’t wishing Christmas away, don’t worry!) where we will be bringing you more luxury, stylish and beautiful events than ever to a city, town or village near you. As you read today’s pretty post you will find us hard at work finalising our events calendar for the next year and to be honest with you, it’s looking more gorgeous than ever!
The Wedding Affair’s 2018 Spring wedding fairs are seriously starting in style. Firstly, we were at the stunning city chic York Marriott Hotel for our annual wedding fair, and boy we’re so excited! Next, we are at the absolutely breath taking Ripon Cathedral – the picture perfect setting for a wedding show with 100+ exhibitors, catwalks, cocktails, cakes and entertainment; in fact, this one’s our largest most prestigious events of the year, so this seem’s like the perfect place to start with…
We’re delighted to invite you to join us on Saturday 27th January 12-4pm for The Wedding Affair Traditional and Vintage Show at Ripon Cathedral – If you’ve got a sparkling ring on your finger you are most definitely in for a treat, so, quick! Pop it in the diary and snap up your discounted tickets online whilst you have plenty of time.
Not only does Ripon Cathedral provide a pretty spectacular back-drop for the catwalks that we host (more on that later) but it too gives suppliers of any kind, the best background to showcase their work to Brides and Grooms-to-be and their families. Suppliers take advantage of the unique settings and provide some real show stopping stands.
All you need to do is look at these pictures to realise just how am-a-zing the cathedral looks filled with all of the area’s finest wedding specialists.
Brides and Grooms, family and friends visiting get to sample delicious cocktails, canapés and catering and get to see some of the finest entertainment from Yorkshire and beyond. We can always count on our suppliers to fill the Cathedral with some stunning classic music to create the perfect atmosphere for the hundreds and hundreds of visitors that attend.
With some delicious caterers already booked in and plenty of bubbly, we already know that this show is going to be an outstanding one. We’ve also got more pretty special treat’s lined up for you that we just can’t wait to reveal…
What’s more, we have not one but two outstanding professional musical catwalk productions, accompanied by some of our finest musicians. The shows will be showcasing attire for the whole wedding party, as well as luxurious hats, jewellery and accessories. Who knows, you may just spot your dream dress floating down the catwalk!
With our ‘no more than 10%’ rule, we guarantee you’ll meet a full range of exhibitors across all categories, giving you the opportunity to speak with a vast array of suppliers, and all under one roof. In fact, we will have 100 of the finest exhibitors in the region lined-up and ready to meet you! Wedmin, check!
We’ll have plenty of pretty, from bridal houses to bridesmaids and sharp suits for the boys; there will also be a vast range of stylists, florists and planners that will of course, be able to turn your Pinterest dreams into a reality and a variety of venues, bars, transport (trust us, we’ve got everything covered!).
They’re so excited to hear about your plans, and share the ways in which they can make your dreams a reality. Do pop along in the new year and say “Hello“. They’re a lovely lot.
Our bespoke and beautiful vintage area is full to the top with unique, stylish and once again, wonderful people that will be able to help you plan your special day. We’e arranged unique workshops, arty and crafty bits-and-bobs, vintage tea rooms and a whole host of wedding wonderful.
To honour of this breathtaking venue, we have pledged – for the fourth year running – a £5,000 donation to the Cathedral Development Campaign and the Music Trust. The Development Campaign is tasked with raising £5m over three years, whilst the Music Trust seeks to secure and develop the Cathedral’s reputation as a major centre of musical excellence. The Trust looks to provide accessible musical training through membership of the Cathedral Choir, develop an inclusive outreach programme to take musical excellence into the region, and work in partnership with others who share a passion for music.
We’ll be delighted to welcome you through the doors of the Ripon Cathedral, next January. Make a quick note in the diary and keep your eye’s peeled for lot’s more up-to-date info, inspiration and pretty posts.
