It’s all very well doing a post on an upcoming alternative wedding fair, but what you really want is tips on getting the most out of it, maximising your time at the event so that you get as much sorted as you can.
I’ve championed A Most Curious Wedding Fair since I started this blog, eek four years ago!! It’s more than modern; it’s ahead. And with things like The Jugglist Massive, it’s a cheerleader of strong working mums everywhere who get the seemingly impossible done while handling a million things at once. It’s an amazing team behind this…
Becky Hoh-Hale, who runs Most Curious has more information below, along with some practical tips on how to get the most out of attending. And check out the amazing campaign shots – I just love the styling!!!
Bridesmaids, you can get properly excited now that separates are available for you, too! Not only that, but these are beautiful pieces in delicate colours and really feminine fabrics that you can team with your everyday clothes for after the wedding. No more one-wear-only, obviously bridesmaidy bridesmaid dresses hanging forlornly in the wardrobe until who knows when!!
Yesterday, I showed you the details and dates for the brilliant Most Curious Wedding Fair, and a little Q&A interview with the organisers, Becky Hoh-Hale and Sara Smyth. Did you also see the glimpses of the styled shoot their team and they did for the campaign imagery? They’re amazing at this, and it’s my favourite bit of the lead-up to the event, seeing what creativity and ingenuity they come up with next. Here’s the entire thing in all its glory because you know me – lovesick for the styled shoot! No way I could pass up blogging that!!
The Story of The Shoot
A Most Curious Wedding Fair 2015 was another success for the modern bridal show, where contemporary, original and innovative are the watchwords, rather than traditional.
Described as ‘the nation’s coolest wedding fair’ on BBC2’s primetime show HAIR, Most Curious has launched its dates for the spring of 2016.
“Over 120 exhibitors, hand-picked for their finger on the pulse and creativity in their hearts, will take over the prestigious location on the coolest street in the UK – Brick Lane. And over 60 of East Anglia’s chicest and hippest wedding vendors will fill up the grand and historical space at St Andrews Hall in Norwich. Great design, fashion and lifestyle trends will be celebrated and incorporated into the wedding world with these carefully curated shows with an explosion of inspiration for the coolest couples!
“Fashion shows, live music, craft beers and street food will ensure a whole day out’s worth of nuptial research and enjoyment!”
Previous winners of the event’s bridalNext! award, which is “an initiative set up by Most Curious to support and promote fresh, fashion-led, new and innovative talent in the bridal industry. Not only launching them into the spotlight, but also bringing them straight to the creative, stylish and cool loving brides and grooms,” all came together to produce the campaign images. These are photographer Natalie J Weddings, dress designer Velvet Johnstone, milliner and accessories designer AM Faulkner, and stationer Oh Squirrel. I’ll be showing you this shoot tomorrow on the blog as a separate post because it is too gorgeous to simply select a few images for this one!! You’ll see straight away that this is a wedding fair dedicated to the talented new kids, the groundbreakers and the industry game changers.
