Mitton Hall – Off-Beat Wedding Fair

MittonHallWeddingFair-108

If you’re following the Marry Me Ink Facebook page, you’ll notice that I spent the last Bank Holiday Monday at James’ Places Mitton Hall for their Off-Beat Wedding Fair. I had the chance to meet Jack of Project Valentine Photography who took plenty of photos on the day of everyone’s spectacular stalls.

The main reason for me visiting the Off-Beat Wedding Fair at Mitton Hall last Monday was to work with the ever awesome Kerry Baker Make Up.

Kerry was showcasing two demos throughout the day, the first being the “Wonderful Wing” and the second being the “Perfect Pout”. If you didn’t know, I was Kerry’s model for the day.

Founder Becky Hoh-Hale, got married in 2008 just before the vintage explosion, so struggled with even getting a caterer who would serve food ‘on old plates’. So what followed was a now familiar story, but slightly pioneering at the time, of Becky collecting all her own vintage china, making her own bunting, backdrops and tablecloths and sourcing props that were unique to her and and her husband and were of course ‘vintage’. This lead to her hiring out the pieces after her wedding to other like minded, and time-short brides who may not have the time or inclination to collect every thing they needed, under the name A Most Curious Party. That’s old news now, with a whole host of stories like that in the wedding industry, but Becky took it one step further. Following a disheartening spate of exhibiting at wedding shows with her wares, Becky realised the same pioneer spirit could be applied to wedding fairs and she might just be the girl to do it. Most Curious, the wedding show for the style-savvy couple was born.

Just as A Most Curious Party started as offering couples something that fit with their everyday lifestyle loves (a beautiful, slick version of it of course) Most Curious now unites trend aware and directional suppliers with the free and forward thinking couples who want their wedding day to be as design and fashion led as the rest of their lives, as free spirited and wild as their love and not particularly subscribing to a hugely traditional aesthetic for their big day, just what they love – but focused down into a wonderful 24 hour production!

The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza – Birmingham

image002

Back in early 2012 a wedding show like no other was borne.  It tumbled, devoid of elegance, from the crazy hearts and minds of three creative wedding industry suppliers, Sassy (Assassynation), Jo (The Couture Co) and Vikki (Liliia Designs). Their desire was simple; to encourage couples to shake off the shackles of wedding conformity and showcase the very best of alternative wedding industry suppliers, who are also known as The Baaad Ass Mother Flockers!! (Aka Baad ass Mo Flo’s) who all offer a diverse and eclectic feast of all things wedding in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment. I went last year – It was awesome! There was so much cool stuff going on – Check out how it looked with these photos from the day from Louise Holgate Photography.

The motto is ‘Don’t be a wedding sheep, it’s all about EWE!’

Since 2012 The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza has showcased a wonderfully diverse range of services and products, from kick ass wedding dresses to sculptural flower bouquets, from gothic themed wedding cakes to some of the best DJ’s around. Previous shows have included live music, stilt walkers, a procession of models in gorgeous dresses and accessories on the Real Bride’s walkabout and amazing prizes to be won in the renowned treasure hunt.
