I was very excited to be asked to A Most Curious Wedding Fair in London. Most Curious and it’s handpicked exhibitors draw inspiration from the lifestyle trends around them, your lifestyle trends, not weddings trends, weddings shouldn’t have trends, they should be about you having fun and being creative, dreaming big and most importantly an expression and celebration of who you are as a couple.The fair aims to encapsulate that with it’s mix of innovative, design-led suppliers, fashion shows, entertainment, styling, activities, music and performance. The things you can’t quite put your finger on but you know you want it on your day? This is the place to find it. Hackney Downs Studios was a cool venue space for their Spring Summer 2014 show and it was great to meet with so many brides there. With over 90 stalls it was a packed show and I only had a few brief chances for photos, and didnt get around to photograph all the stands. I did squeeze in two little photoshoots with Oilhana who modeled for Sammantha Walden & Federica Bruno and The Faun in the Lemonade and Laughing gas caravan. Which is basically an uber loved cool caravan, the newest addition to the L&LG family, available to hire. What fun. I met lots of brides and felt the selection of stalls and the organisation were both excellent. The two fashion shows were packed out, as I was right by the catwalk there was a sea of heads of brides all ready for insiration from what was on offer. Well done to Ruby, Sarah and Cat for a brilliant event. Have a look at teh amazing video at the end for a terrific slice of what was there!
Watch the film at the end for two AMAZING catwalks, hosted by the adorable Faun.
I loved these two cakes, 'The Black Pearl' and 'Silver Birch' by Cake me Baby and the little love biscuits
Excellent Showmen, The Faun and Apollo helped the party go with a swing!
Crown and Glory & Rock and Roll Bride for cute-as a button animal ears, loud and proud floral crowns and sparkly bows.

Really loved the little meringue 'kisses' which look like pretty little figs around this amazing cake by Fondant Fox who has teamed up with The Meringue Girls to provide these fabulous new alternative sensation!
My neighbouring stand was the lovely Emma from Emma Mills Florist and Stylist, her flowers are exquisite, we had alot of fun together.

I loved being part of this London Wedding fair and would highly recommend it as a great event to hang out at, be inspired and generally get into the Wedding mode.
