Happy Monday lovelies! Hope you had a great (albeit freezing) weekend! Whether next weekend is sunny or snowy, it won’t matter, because if you are planning your wedding and you are lovely creative bride, the only place you should be is indoors at the Old Truman Brewery (Brick Lane) for The London Wedding Emporium – a fair for the modern, stylish couple planning their wedding.
Run by two London-based wedding photographers, Caro Hutchings and Kat Hill, The London Wedding Emporium aims to introduce creative couples to the kind of wedding vendors who will help them craft their day in a way that truly reflects them.
Traditional, vintage and alternative couples are already well catered for in the industry. However, there are a lot of brides and grooms who don’t entirely identify themselves with those labels, bursting with creativity and personality. The London Wedding Emporium is for couples who appreciate good design and craftsmanship, who enjoy the eclectic mix of what London has to offer, has a good sense of style and, most importantly, wants to discover new ways of injecting fun and personality into their day.
The ethos behind the fair is collaboration. No hard sales, no flashy shows, it’s simply a chance for couples to chat to some of the most creative people in the industry in a friendly, relaxed environment.
