Magpie Wedding fair - The Assembly, Leamington - November 2017

Another weekend, another wedding fair - this time at The Assembly in Leamington.

As the end of the wedding fair season draws to a close, we look back on our first few fairs and look forward to exhibiting at more next year!

As always, catching up with and meeting other wedding companies is a highlight of the day.

At this fair we met:

FeteStall Attraction - fairground-type games which make for perfect entertainment at a wedding reception. Was cool to see Brides, Grooms and bridesmaids trying out the various games with the ‘throw the hoop on the rhino’ proving particularly popular! (I’m ashamed to say I’ve only just worked out the pun company name too!)

Running with Wolves - our neighbours for the day were ‘Running with Wolves’ who had an autumnal floral arrangement on display. It was good to speak to Emmi who is also focussing on developing her wedding business full-time.

SAA Photography - we’d met Selena briefly at previous wedding fairs so was good to take a look at her wedding photography and have a proper chat with her who gave us some handy tips on the local wedding fairs.

Flipside Bride - handmade bouquets, buttonholes and wands!!! Especially liked the Nightmare Before Christmas bouquet.

Stratford Vintage Chic wedding fair - October 2017

October brought with it our second wedding fair - this time at the Vintage Chic wedding fair at Ettington Park Hotel in Stratford.

After learning lessons from our previous wedding fair, this time we packed lighter (no idea why we thought we needed masking tape last time!) and felt a lot more confident and a lot less out of our depth!

We thoroughly enjoyed meeting all of the brides and grooms-to-be in attendance and hearing about all of their wedding plans!

As before, an added bonus to wedding fairs is the chance to speak to the other exhibitors attending the fair. This time our neighbours at the fair included: 

  • Mathias & Locke - Personalised gifts and products for all occasions. Intricate wood engraving on all sorts of gifts. Great to chat to a like-minded business also on the up!  
  • LightBox Deluxe Photo Booth - Lightbox were our neighbours for the day and I was intrigued by their all-in-one wooden photo booth!!
  • Wedding Cakes by Judi Delaney - We saw Judi and her cakes at the last fair we exhibited at! Excellent sugar work and even tastier cake!!
  • The Recycled Wedding Company - Bespoke, handmade bridal bouquets using upcycled, recycled and natural materials. Love these! 

As the 2017 wedding season draws to a close, we look forward to attending many more wedding fairs in 2018!!

Our first wedding fair!

Today (Sunday 17th September), we were proud to exhibit at our first wedding fair!

Held at the Royal Pump Rooms, the Leamington Vintage Chic Wedding Fair was a great chance for us to show off our groomsmen and bridesmaids gifts to Brides and Grooms to be in attendance.

The welcome surprise was the great networking taking place and we had great chats with the guys and girls from:

We will be exhibiting at the next Vintage Chic Wedding Fair taking place in Stratford in October and look forward to seeing all of the friendly faces there on the day.

Featured testimonial - Oliver Bagshaw

Oliver enquired about buying some of our pocket watches quite close to his big day.

We worked closely with him to get the engraving details agreed as quick as possible and his watches were sent out to him in plenty of time to spare.

He was kind enough to provide us some kind words which you can read below:

"A great service from beginning to end, very helpful nothing was too much to ask. I ordered 8 pocket watches pretty last minute.

The pocket watches not only arrived in perfect timing for my wedding day, they looked great all with individual messages in the top quality display boxes, everyone just loved them and they were great value for the quality we received.

I have recommended to friends and would defiantly purchase from you again myself.

Thank you very much for your great service and quality products.

Kind Regards

Oliver Bagshaw
