Planning a wedding and looking for something a little different? The Quirky Weddings Alternative Wedding Fair was created with you in mind!

Now in its fifth year, the fair returns to the Waterfront Hall on Sunday March 1st (12-5pm)

What’s so different about the Alternative Wedding Fair? Saima Akram of Quirky Weddings says

“For a start we hand pick our exhibitors! We have always sold out all the spaces at our fairs so we started taking applications and choosing who best suited the personality of the event. We generally get over 200 applications for the approx 120 spaces. We look for creativity, quality and people who love what they do.”

Cate Conway, the other half of Quirky Weddings says

“We have over 120 exhibitors this time and visitors can expect to see a fantastic range of vendors! There will be rockabilly hair, slick stylish suits, creative photography, massive light up letters, gourmet marshmallows and chocolates, luxury balloons, unusual venues, dreamy dresses, jewellers who can help you make your own rings, the most incredible cakes you’ve ever seen and much more.

We have just announced our exhibitor list on our website, quirkyweddings.co.uk, so couples can get a head start on their research! We find lots of couples are quite strategic and make a list of who they want to speak to and come ready to make a bee-line for the companies they are particularly keen to meet! You can feel free to browse at your leisure too though, it’s a ‘no pressure’ event. We don’t like hard sell.”

Doors open at 12 noon and the Quirky Weddings girls suggest you get there early. Not only is there a lot to see but also the first 500 visitors will get in half price. (Regular admission is £6)

There will also be copies of the Quirky Weddings free Alternative Wedding Directory ‘The Book’ available so don’t forget to look for it as you leave!
