Belvoir Castle Leicestershire Wedding Fair Sunday 26th November 2017

We haven't been to the amazing Belvoir Castle wedding fair for over a year, so we thought that it was about time that we returned.

The beautiful surroundings and opulent interiors make Belvoir Castle a very special wedding venue. Our brides who get married there love the splendour and the grandeur.

Belvoir Castle is an extra-special place not only to get married in but just for a visit!

Doors Open at 11am till 2pm 

Carriage Hall, Plumtree Wedding Fair Sunday 19th November 2017

This will be our last wedding fair of 2017. It's been a busy year!
The Carriage Hall in Plumtree, Nottinghamshire is a more modern venue than most that we attend. It has a certain chic styling that looks clean and unfussy.
Recently added to the grounds are some lovely carriages on wheels where guests can stay the night. Super cosy, and with meals at Perkins Restaurant also in the grounds, it makes for a lovely place for a wedding.

Norwood Park, Nottinghamshire Wedding Fair Sunday 15th October 2017

Norwood Park near Southwell in Nottinghamshire is a truly lovely wedding venue. The house, not too grand, not too small, is set in beautiful parkland with a long drive through trees.
The house has a long gallery room with murals adorning the walls and a painted sky on the ceiling. A great setting for a wedding breakfast.
We show here twice a year because it's such a lovely place to be!

Prestwold Hall, Leicestershire Wedding Fair Sunday 8th October 2017

One of our favourite wedding venues, Prestwold Hall in Leicestershire is a grand baronial style stately home set in beautiful grounds.
A short walk down the drive is the pretty church where weddings can take place before guests move into the hall itself. The look is perfect for a bride and groom who wants a shabby-chic baroque styled wedding.
We show here twice a year we love it so much!

Calke Abbey Riding School Wedding Fair Sunday 24th September 2017

This will be our first show at the wonderfully eclectic riding school at Calke Abbey.
It's a fabulously quirky venue that creates a very special background to weddings that are relaxed, a little boho and fun.
We love to try new venues to show our dresses, meet suppliers we might not already know,
and meet some lovely new brides to be.


The Bridal Show, Harrogate Sunday 10th September 2017

On Sunday 10th September we are off to the beautiful spa town of Harrogate in Yorkshire.
As usual we are feeling very excited! The show is one of the largest trade shows in Europe where the designers of those beautiful wedding dresses (and more) come along to show off their brand new designs. We will be there to meet with the Watters team; Wendy Makin, who comes over from her home town of Brisbane, Australia; Richard Designs and The Empty Box Company!
Choosing the gowns we will be bringing into the boutique isn't always easy but we do our best!

Walled Garden Wedding Fair September 17th 2017

The Walled Garden at Beeston Fields in Nottingham is one of our favourite venues. The pretty garden was once the kitchen garden for the main house and is now a gorgeous setting for a relaxed wedding.
We love to meet the brides-to-be who venture into the big marquee at the wedding fairs we attend. Always a cheerful place to be!
Our next fair is on Sunday 17th September. Run by Buckinghams Wedding Magazine, it promises to be a day of discovery with old friends and new.
