Today brings the very first Exhibitors Exposed

This gives us the opportunity to reveal a little bit about each exhibitor who will be at the Wedding Event with a Difference, dig a little deeper and get us prepared for the big day itself!

So, without further ado, here are our very first set of lovely wedding suppliers who are going to be there on the 16th October:

We are Pocket Typewriter and we create romantic, quirky and individual wedding stationery. Our team is made up of Leckie and Jack a brother and sister duo! We love what we do and can’t wait to share it all with you at the Wedding Event with a Difference!
If you weren’t doing what you are, what do you think you would you be doing?
Well I think we would both be working for some company and daydreaming about doing exactly what we are doing! So good job we did what we have!
If you could design a piece of wedding stationery for anyone in the world, who would it be?
Oooh…tough one!   I think I would have to say (not including anyone I know as that is always special)…..but famous wise Pippa Middleton as she is cool, natural, classy and a good sister!
What are you most looking forward to at the wedding event with a difference?
We are looking forward to setting up our quirky display of our invitations and stationery in gorgeous mad hatter style cake stands and domes, vintage bench and screens!!! I can’t wait to chat to all the brides, grooms, mother of the brides, bridesmaids….well everyone we meet!!!
We have also just launched our wedding collection on notonthehighstreet.com (who are also showing at The Wedding Event with a Difference) so please take a look at us there!
Pocket Typewriter will be exhibiting in our ‘Creative Corner’ so make sure you pay them a visit!
Next up, it’s The Greenery – a beautiful florist with a fabulous style – look out for them in ‘All things Pretty’ at the event.
We are The Greenery florist and gift boutique, in Duffield. We are a designer florist specialising in wedding flowers with a gift boutique stocking a wonderful range of home accessories, jewellery and beautiful little trinkets.
What would you be doing if you weren’t running The Greenery? 
If I wasn’t The Greenery, I’d be a lady that lunches….!!!
Joking aside I’ve been in the flower industry since I was a saturday girl at 14….! 19 years on, I don’t really know anything else but flowers, customer service and of course, being a mum 🙂
Which wedding would you have loved to provide the flowers for?
Tough question; I loved Lilly Allen’s wedding flowers, loved the whole country style with big roses, peonies, hydrangeas  – all my favourites. Plus, a beautiful English church.
What are you most looking forward to at the wedding event with a difference?
Well, we’re looking forward to taking part for the first time in a stunning setting, meeting new suppliers, being able to create and exhibit in your own area,not just a table! We’re going to be recreating  a mini greenery boutique 🙂 We’re really excited about creating some new and different designs specially for the day, which we have already started to design….
Last but most definitely not least is Highly Strung – a string quartet with attitude (in a good way!) They will be performing throughout the entire day in the main entrance to the Wedding Event with a Difference. Can’t wait to hear their juke box! Read on for more ….

Highly Strung is a string quartet made up of 2 violins, viola and cello. We are a professional well established all female group who have played together for many years at weddings across the UK. We are based in the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire and have played at hundreds of wedding venues in the Midlands. We play all genres of music and are well known for our pop arrangements, including the Foo Fighters, Take That, The Killers etc.
We also offer an electric string quartet for the all important ‘WOW’ factor!
If you weren’t doing what you are, what do you think you would you be doing?
None of us know any other way of life…we have all been playing since a very young age and our hobby lead to a career in music. Although we play at over 100 weddings each year, we all perform outside the quartet too – we play with stars such as Robbie Williams, Will Young, The Bootleg Beatles and play in orchestras, musicals and much more!
If you could perform for anyone in the world, who would it be?
We have always wanted to do a celebrity ‘gig’. We have all played at exciting events over the years including the Queen’s Jubilee, for huge corporate events and parties in amazing venues but we are still waiting for the all important celebrity wedding booking!
What are you most looking forward to at the wedding event with a difference? 
We are going to do a String Quartet Jukebox….! Anyone that wants to can request a tune from our huge repertoire www.highlystrungquartet.com/repertoire We cover all genres from Bach, Beethoven and Bacharach through to the Beach Boys, the Beatles and Bohemian Rhapsody. Popular wedding favourites include Pachelbel Canon, Vivaldi’s 4 Seasons, Moon River, Elbow’s One Day Like This, Coldplays’s In My Place and Take That’s Greatest Day. For couples with a specific request that we haven’t got we can look into getting their special song arranged.
So, the first three exhibitors have been and gone so it’s time to start exposing some more! We have SO many fantastic suppliers coming to the Wedding Event with a Difference, we can’t wait for you to see who else is going to be there.
The next installment of Exhibitors Exposed will be next week so watch this space ….
