      Wedding Fairs

Are you right at the start of your wedding

planning journey? Looking for inspiration?

Then wedding fairs are the place to start.

Online is great for brainstorming and  

finding lots of companies who all do what

you need but there is nothing better than 

talking face to face in one venue on one day with all those companies.

I get most of my clients from word of mouth and referrals but I LOVE attending a couple of fairs each year.  There is something so rewarding about meeting brides, having a chat and getting excited with them.  It also gives me a chance to show off some of the items I hire.

The show I look forward to the most every year is the BIG Riviera Wedding Show.  It is at the Riviera Centre in Torquay on Sunday 1st March this year and its always a fun day.  The thing about the show that appeals to me is you can meet local suppliers only so the show keeps South Devon couples in mind.

Brides at Waterfields will be there with a catwalk show which features models of all sizes showing a wide range of dresses, they don't just stop there though the catwalk also features men's wear and flower girls and this year the new real bride section with brides who have had their special day but who bought their dresses from Waterfields in the past. 

here is the link to the Facebook event page for updates and more information. I will look forward to seeing many of you there.

      LGBT Weddings

I have noticed a lot of magazines and

websites say 'bride and groom' or

'Mr & Mrs' and it got me thinking that

this could be the reason I have not yet

had anyone inquire or book for a same

sex  wedding. My website is generally not

aimed at anyone in particular but if people are put off using companies in general then are they even looking.

The wedding industry is very open to love of all kinds here in the UK, but it's not all that obvious when looking online, so I wanted to do a small blog post to highlight that most companies cater for all weddings from LGBT to naturists and cosplay. Your wedding is your day and any company who doesn't embrace your vision wont leave you with the memories you deserve. I offer a request service and order in if I  don't already have something in stock but as much as I would love to cater for everything there are some things I may not be able to get hold of due to availability  or costing not my lack of wanting to give you your dream wedding.

The wedwecan logo above shows two websites who show great support same sex weddings so please check them out, and below are some pictures from a styled shoot at Torquay Museum I was involved in. We had 2 models and so I wanted to put them together for a couple of the photos to promote same sex weddings. The dresses were supplied by Truly Delightful Bridal Totnes, and the girls makeup was done by Melanie Thornton MUA.
