The gorgeous Midlands Vintage Chic Wedding Fair

September is that time of the year when wedding photographers (and all other wedding suppliers for that matter) get to take a slightly deeper breath, with a spot of relief that life is calming down slightly.  We get to take stock, enjoy looking back at all of the gorgeous weddings we’ve been a part of this season, and look forward to attracting more lovely brides and grooms to work with in the future.  A part of this is baring our souls and putting our wares “out there” for new people to see.  I love talking to people in person and attending wedding fairs is the best way to meet a whole bunch of new folk. So this weekend I joined a super talented gang of wedding suppliers who all came together to show off their specialism in vintage.

I’m not going to lie, I got rather excitable about keeping with the theme and made my stand look the most vintage it possibly could, topped off with a vintage dress to match!  I can’t tell you how much I loved searching around junk shops and digging through the vintage in my house to pull it all together.

I didn’t realise just how vintage my life was until I stood back and looked at my stand.  People that know me will be able to spot that most of the furniture usually lives in my house.  Including my most esteemed and completely handmade (by moi!) Aztec foot stool.  Minus the door of course – I didn’t quite go as far as unhinging it from my front door!

2 shout outs for boys I couldn’t have done without to make my stand: love of my life and his awesome lighting and sound company for my gorgeous “pickle pat” stage light (yes that really is it’s name) www.claritas-av.co.uk . And my neighbour Joe and his amazing collection of beautiful vintage film cameras… I made quite a dent in his collection this weekend – there were lots of gaps on his “special shelf”.

I was taken aback by all of the effort that everyone had gone to in making their stands beautiful and their products stand out.  And I had so much fun making friends with fellow suppliers and chatting to loads of lovely brides & grooms with exciting plans.  Lots of talk of gorgeous farm weddings (with pet horses involved!), trips to Bali to get married and many more unique and personal plans.

Here are a few snaps I took to show you what a great day it was.
