My First Wedding Fayre

Hey everyone! Welcome back :)


On sunday (1st March) I had the pleasure of attending my very first wedding fayre as a wedding photographer! Exciting right?


The Fayre was hosted at the stylish wedding and event venue, The Cube, in Birmingham City Centre, organised and in support of Birmingham St Mary's Hospice!


The Fayre raised money for the hospice and supported 25 local suppliers in the process.


You can see my first ever attempt at a display below! (eek!)




It was lovely to meet other suppliers and of course - you lovely lot! A particularly heartwarming moment for me was meeting a couple who felt comfortable enough to share the story of how they met.


This wonderful 'bride-and-groom-to-be' confided that they actually met through the hospice! After both losing their partners, they met at a reunion for widowed partners that the hospice had cared for, proving that love strikes when you're least expecting it.




I'd also like to share with you a few of the wonderful suppliers I met!


1. The Wild Halo


These bad ass ladies handcraft bespoke decor for your wedding! Backdrops, centre pieces - you name it, these ladies can do it! (and it looks flipping gorgeous too. )

2. Miss Apple's Sweets!


This lovely lady offers vegan mini baked treats, perfect for favours or your guests with a sweet tooth? And honestly she was the sweetest person to talk to. And look how smiley she is!

3. Beyou Bride!


These classy ladies cater to all your hair and make-up needs. They can take care of themselves, so you can be sure they'll take care of you!




There were plenty more fabulous suppliers but I don't want to go on for too long - instead you can find a comperehensive list here:

It sure was loads of fun, hard work and the cherry on top is that to raised some money for a great and important cause. Why not choose to give to charity for your wedding favours? St Mary's offer these adorable little pin badges, give the gift of end of life care in honour of your special day.
