The Venue - Clifton Pavilion, Bristol Zoo Gardens

We're just thrilled about the venue for the Wedding Fair. Clifton Pavilion at Bristol Zoo Gardens is a beautiful two-storey, art-deco building. It's a fantastic venue. Two of my best friends got married there a few years back and it was just wonderful. The gardens are fantastic and we got to wander around the zoo after hours!
Take a look at their website for more information about the zoo as a wedding venue - http://www.bristolzoo.org.uk/weddings

The Hand-Made Corset Company

The Handmade Corset Company is owned by the gorgeous Cathy Price and Penn O'Gara. All of their work is simply stunning. And not just corsets, they also create the most beautiful corsages and fascinators. We can't wait to see their handywork at the Fair. This is what they say about themselves and about the process of creating a corset....

The Handmade Corset Company grew out of Penn O'Gara and Cathy Price's shared love of costume, textiles and general joie de vivre. With backgrounds in fashion, theatre and film, Penn and Cathy have combined forces to produce these exquisite examples of their work, to intrigue and inspire.

Now it's your turn...!

Each corset is absolutely unique in design and is produced in close collaboration with the customer. Starting with a picture, colour scheme or concept provided by you, we will design and create a beautiful and individual corset to fulfil your dreams. The finished corset will be an original celebration of colour and texture, using a range of sumptuous fabrics including silk, dupion, organza, velvet tulle, leather, lace, feathers and beads. Your very own work of wearable art.

Aren't they wonderful?! You can always find an excuse to wear a corset can't you? Well, maybe they're not for a Tesco run but there must be lots of reasons why I need one of these!

Miss Jones - Exquisite Lingerie

We thought we'd make our very first post about a wonderful company who will be exhibiting on the day called Miss Jones. This exquisite and evocative lingerie is the creation of the very, very talented Jacqui Jones. This is just a little taster of Miss Jones' lingerie. More beautiful lingerie to follow soon...

A flirtatious vintage feel that is both sensual and romantic.
Make your night special with finest pure silk chiffon, rose embroidered lace, pure silk ribbon and Swarovski crystals and pearls.  
Wow! We're sure you'll agree that this underwear couldn't fail to make you feel like a goddess! Jacqui, we're looking forward to seeing more of your underwear soon. And at the Fair of course. In the flesh (so to speak)!

The South West's First Vintage Wedding Fair

We are so excited to announce that we are putting together the first vintage wedding fair to be held in the South West. The Fair will take place on Sunday, 20 March 2011 at Clifton Pavilion, Bristol Zoo Gardens. Clifton Pavilion is a wonderful two-storey art-deco building and is itself a fully licensed wedding venue. 

We are getting ready to post details of some of the wonderful, inspiring companies already signed-up to exhibit. Some of our stall holders will be displaying original, vintage items. Some will be vintage inspired. Above all, everything on display will be truly inspiring and unique.

The Fair will appeal to brides who want a full vintage wedding, and to those who just want something that little bit different or just need some inspiration or that special touch. 

It will also appeal to the discerning vintage crowd. Whether you're getting married or not, there's sure to be something to inspire you amid the exquisite lingerie, jewellery and clothes.

Entry on the day will be absolutely free to all visitors.
