This Autumn sees a creatively unique and fabulous wedding show come to Winchester, a super bridal day out for brides-to-be!
The Vintage Parade team present…
Sunday 25th October | Guildhall, Winchester | 11am – 3pm | Entry – £2
This utterly charming wedding fair has been created to celebrate all things quirky, unique and imaginative. If you are a vintage-loving bride hoping to plan a vintage inspired wedding or if you are looking for something more creative or alternative, then The Nostalgic Wedding Fair is most definitely for you!
Taking place in the magnificent Winchester Guildhall, highlights of the day will include:
*Collaboration with Brides of Winchester for a fabulous wedding dress sample sale (The incredible selection of bridal designers include Pronovias, Sassi Holford, Stewart Parvin and Suzanne Neville!)
*An incredible array of handpicked wedding suppliers
*Spectacular wedding inspiration
Earlier this year, some of the suppliers exhibiting at *The Nostalgic Wedding Fair* took part in a fabulous styled shoot and the idea behind it is utterly delightful and I can’t believe it hasn’t been done before – a genius idea!! It is so lovely to see the fabulous ladies behind the incredible products and services that they offer.
“The concept for this project was to give an opportunity for the people which work in the wedding industry, capturing them selves with their work in front on the lens. Letting them be the model and take precedence.”
Alex of *The Vintage Parade* came up with the concept of the charming supplier shoot,
“Why is it that we always do shoots for brides to be, but never for the people who work so tirelessly behind the scenes? After all, without the photographer, the cake maker, the dress maker, the make-up, hair, videographer, florist, stationer or jeweller there wouldn’t necessarily be the dream wedding that everyone wants. The central idea was to use supplier products/tools of the trade to dress the setting and to convey the essence of them as well as their brand – but most importantly, everyone was encouraged to be relaxed and be themselves. We had a ball, and loved every second of shooting 8 gorgeous ladies in one very long day.”
JENNY OWENS | PHOTOGRAPHER | www.jennyowensphotography.com
The super talented Jenny Owens with her hugely impressive portfolio photographed the shoot and the results are totally fabulous.
“In my dreams (if I had spare time and money) you’d most likely find me in a beach hut by the south coast of the UK, just lounging and reading, surrounded by family and friends. Or another dream is to be pootling around the New Forest in a VW campervan. But I’d also settle for a good piece of cake and a hot cup of tea. That also makes me happy.”
KIM STYLES | SILVER SMITH | www.kim-styles-jewellery.co.uk
“I create intricate hand crafted sterling silver and gold jewellery, bridal accessories and wedding bands. I make with great care and attention to detail the old fashioned way, I love working with precious metal and I consider how each piece I make will fit together, sit and move with the wearer. To make jewellery that is special and unique for each of my clients is one of the things I enjoy most about what I do.”
