More exhibitors exposed …..

Where are the weeks going!? I mean, seriously – how can it be the Wedding Event with a Difference NEXT WEEK!!!??

Well, if you haven’t already got your tickets then do so as soon as you can as tickets are limited. Get them here.

So, without further ado, here are some more of our fabulous exhibitors ready to reveal all starting with the lovely Hannah of Little Fish Events ….

Who are you and what do you do?

I’m Hannah, the owner of Little Fish Events and the person who will plan some or all of your wedding, make your stationery, be on the end of phone at anytime of the day (or night!) and be there on your wedding day to make sure everything is just so.  I am the person who will beaver away in the background to make sure everything goes to plan, leaving you free to relax and enjoy the day.  Want to know more?  Well, I love good coffee, homemade marmalade (on thick white toast… with real butter), peeling PVA glue off my fingers and lining up my spools of ribbon in colour order!  My three children and my three chickens keep me occupied when I am not in wedding mode.

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

I would own a little coffee shop and sell flowers and cupcakes and gorgeous little trinkets.  In fact I would probably call it ‘Trinkets’ and spend the day making glorious Victoria sponges, tangy lemon buttercream and creating unusual jam from local fruit.  I would definitely still be the person who loves to plan parties and make lots of quirky gifts because that is who I am.  I have always loved being creative and seeing people’s reactions when they open something I have made.  It’s a great buzz!  I loved being a Senior Events Manager before I started the company, it gave me such an amazing skill set, but I can honestly say that I prefer planning weddings to Royal visits!

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

I have to put my hands up and admit that I am a huge Twilight fan, so for me Bella & Edward’s wedding would be a dream job.  The twist of Edward’s vintage charm against Bella’s modern upbringing would set me a real challenge ensuring they were both thrilled with the final product.  Yes, the seating plan would probably cause me a few sleepless nights but I could go to town with a theme I could really get my teeth stuck into.  Excuse the pun!

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

I really enjoy meeting couples and talking about their plans and ideas.  I can’t help but get genuinely excited for them and in doing so I tend to throw lots of ideas around… some of which turn into my best selling products.  You never know where inspiration is going to come from, but for me, meeting people face to face and feeling that energy and enthusiasm is what makes me creative.  I have heard so many great things about the Save The Date show and I can’t wait to get set up and show off what I can do!  If you would like to have a go at designing your own invitation, why not come and see me, you may even win your wedding invitations. Roll on October the sixteenth!

Charlotte Thompson Bridal Boutique

Hi I am Charlotte Thompson and have a beautiful new bridal boutique in the little town of Tutbury, Staffordshire. The reason that I got in to the bridal business is that I was engaged myself and on the hunt for my dream wedding dress. I found my dream dress but not just that the boutique I went to was looking for a new member of staff and they chose me!! I couldn’t believe it was amazing and I haven’t looked back since and my passion has grown and grown for all things bridal. I love to create different looks for my all brides capturing each brides personality and style whilst enhancing and making them look their most beautiful.

The first thing everyone comments on is the atmosphere in the boutique as I have tried to create a feeling of romance and comfort. Buying your wedding dress should one of the most special moments of you life and one that you remember forever, so it needs to be a good one, I will not settle for anything less!! Your friends and family will be welcomed with you to the comfort of the sofa as you try the collection of dresses.

If I was to provide anything to any couple it would be my parents as I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. They have supported me with everything even when they have been going through a lot themselves. They have also developed a keen interest in the boutique, my Mum popping in regularly to catch a glimpse of one of my brides in their dress!!

I am very excited about the wedding event with a difference as it will be the first one that I will be doing for myself! I can’t wait to show everyone my style at the boutique and my gorgeous dresses! My hard decision now is deciding which ones to take!! The uniqueness that I feel that I bring to the event is that I believe in keeping it British. All of the wedding dresses that I have are made to order by a seamstress in England providing all of my brides with a completely couture gown.

Please feel free to come and say hello at the event, view the dresses and have a chat about your big day.

See you there,

Charlotte xx

Strawberry Hills

Who are you and what do you do?

We are Wedding Bells, by Strawberry Hills and we sell and hire our canvas bell tents, which look beautiful decked out in bunting, lanterns and sheepskins. They can be used for many, many things. We can set the tents up to sleep all of the brides best friends on her hen night or create a wedding festival for unique guest accommodation.  A bell tent can even be used as a little creche area for the wedding day….. the possibilities are endless… and we love our brides and grooms to get creative!

We also sell lots of beautiful outdoor accessories such as lanterns, baskets and bunting to help couples create a stylish and unique wedding !

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

Well, a dream would be to create and run a glamping haven on a beautiful private island, to create a stunning honeymoon destination….. Unfortunately our very own island doesn’t seem to have come our way, so for now helping brides and grooms create something a little bit different for their wedding celebration sounds good to us!

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

It would have to be the queen of boho chic Kate Moss who married her rock star fiance Jamie Hince this summer… they channelled the festival style wedding, with lots of fabulous touches including Kate’s laid back 1920’s inspired Galliano dress and flower girls with head wreaths of wild flowers.

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

We love what Abbi and the team at a wedding event with a difference are doing – sourcing unique wedding suppliers to give inspiration to brides and grooms!  We are very excited to be a part of something where we will meet brides and grooms who would like to create something very special and a little bit different for their day.

We will be displaying one of our Bridal Suites with a difference at the event – a vintage style bell tent, complete with bed, lanterns, sheepskins and bunting, so come and experience the romanticism of sleeping under the stars in luxury!
