Exhibitors Exposed

Are you ready for more exhibitors to become exposed? Well, then today is your Tuesday treat. Here’s three more amazing exhibitors who we can’t wait for you to meet on 16th October. Hope you’ve got your tickets now – they are selling out fast and we only have a limited number so be quick! Get them here.

So, first up is Catherine who runs Simply Cakes. Take it away Catherine!

Who are you and what do you do?

Hi, I’m Catherine Winstanley and run Simply Cakes, based in the East Midlands. I make homemade wedding cakes and cupcakes to your specifications, using free range eggs and home made raspberry jam in the filling. I have a big passion for cakes, both making and eating them which comes from baking from a young age with my Nana in her Yorkshire kitchen and have finally been able to make my dream come true with Simply Cakes.

If you weren’t doing what you are, what do you think you would you be doing?
Cakes are my passion, and it is what I eventually want to do full time, I have lots of experience with weddings, and have even been a Wedding Account Manager in London!

If you could provide your service for any couple in the world (famous or not) who would it be and why?
Wedding cakes are all very personal with each one designed with a couple’s ideas and thoughts in mind.. .there are so many to choose from but if I have to choose one it would be ……Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice,  I’m an old romantic at heart and to be able to create a wedding cake with designs from Victorian times with a twist of the 21st century would be amazing, in fact it might just be my next project! We’ve all dreamed of being Elizabeth Bennet with the most handsome Mr. Darcy hanging from our arms. Haven’t we?

What are you most looking forward to at the wedding event with a difference? 

I am officially launching Simply Cakes at the Wedding Event with a difference, which includes the launch of my website www.simplycakesbycatherine.co.uk , so it’s a very exciting time for me. I will have new cake designs with me ranging from bright pinks, yellows and oranges… to the traditional creams and whites, along with my very popular cupcakes. I’ll also have samples of my cake flavours including fruit, chocolate, vanilla and lemon for you all to try.

Who are you and what do you do?

We are notonthehighstreet.com, an online marketplace bringing together over 1,800 of the UK’s best small creative businesses and boutiques. Our wedding gift list service helps you discover thousands of beautiful and bespoke items that your guests will love to give, so you can choose inspirational and personalised gifts that are meaningful to you both. We also offer a large range of wedding styling items and finishing touches to make your wedding day as unique as you are.

 

If you weren’t doing what you are, what do you think you would you be doing?

I think the Weddings Team would become serial wedding crashers! Failing that, we would definitely continue to indulge in our love of weddings and wedding blogs. Louise, our Weddings Business Manager, is newly-married so with her wealth of experience and style we think she would make a wonderful wedding planner. 

If you could have any bride in the world as your client (celebrity or not, married or not), who would it be? And why?

This is a very difficult question to answer and I must say we have conflicting opinions within the Weddings Team! One person we all agree on is Angelina Jolie, because she is clever, talented and would make an absolutely beautiful bride (with Brad Pitt being the potential groom in question, you might say that factor has contributed to our choice!) Our offices are based in Richmond, in South West London, and “Brangelina” are staying in the area while Brad is filming a new film. We’ve spotted Angelina numerous times about town and would love to have the pleasure of assisting her with all her wedding styling and gift list needs. We also do a great range of children’s occasion wear and gifts, which would keep her beautiful brood happy on the big day too. notonthehighstreet.com and Brangelina, we think it’s a match made in heaven!


What are you most looking forward to at the wedding event with a difference?

One of our favourite parts of any show is being able to actually meet the brides-and-grooms-to-be. Although our wedding gift list provides a personal service and we often have close contact with our couples, it is always lovely to meet people face-to-face. We exhibited at The Wedding Event with a Difference last year and enjoyed every minute of the show. The venue is stunning, the whole show looked great and there was a great buzz in the room throughout the day. We found the visitors, co-exhibitors and organisers all extremely friendly, which no doubt contributed to the wonderful atmosphere. We can’t wait to be a part of that buzz again, to meet more couples and to showcase the beautiful products that everyone loves to see.

The October event will see some new and exciting elements to our stand, including real notonthehighstreet.com brides wedding details on display and a selection of beautiful styling themes to showcase how our styling products can really add something special to your day. We will be giving each and every visiting couple a chance to share their wedding wish and will also be running a wonderful competition on the day too, giving you even more reasons to come and say hello! We’re very excited and can’t wait to see you in October!

 

 

Who are you and what do you do? 

Rachael Roberts; I am the Senior Events Planner at fabulous catering and events company, Stones Events.

The Stones Events mission is:

to create,  to exceed, to execute timeless, unforgettable and  memorable weddings

If you weren’t doing what you are, what do you think you would you be doing?

This is the absolute perfect job for me, and it truly is a fantastic company. So I really couldn’t see myself doing anything else.  Who wouldn’t want to work with amazing people and organise peoples dream days!

If you could provide your service for any couple in the world (famous or not) who would it be and why? 

Here at Stones Events we like to be different, create something bespoke and rise to a challenge! Prince Harry and my wedding… only joking.

It would have to be the Brad and Angelina extravaganza of the decade.

What a wedding that would be with so many people to please, so many different cuisines, different age group activities to organise and a lot of pressure creating a challenge to make it something perfect!

What are you most looking forward to at the wedding event with a difference? 

We will be providing a chillaxing area for the fabulous guests, with some great mocktails and fabulous nibbles.   Meeting new people and helping them to develop their ideas, whilst tickling their taste buds, sounds like a pretty perfect Sunday!
