We’ve been showcasing some wonderful exhibitors for this year’s Bristol Vintage Wedding Fair and as it's not only #WW today [that’s Wedding Wednesday, you know] but also the #Wedding Wednesday of the year, I [that’s Sarah here, *waves hello*] thought it might be nice to tell you a little more about the lady who makes the annual Bristol Vintage Wedding Fair possible and what she does when she’s not organising this brilliant event.
I expect you know already that Bristol Vintage is a Bristol based company co-founded by Ali Cook and Katie Daniels and, since the birth of Katie’s baby girl, is being run by Ali. She has over 10 years experience organising boutique events, weddings, parties and film premieres and the idea for the company was inspired by her passion for vintage and love of tea-cups and cupcakes.
It was after attending a number of fairs and realising that they were looking for something that little bit different, that Ali and Katie realised a dedicated vintage wedding fair was exactly what the South West needed. They came up with the idea to hold their own and last spring held the very first Bristol Vintage Wedding Fair at the Clifton Pavilion.
This year’s fair is bigger and better, as they welcome back some wonderful exhibitors and showcase some new ones for you, each handpicked and offering gorgeous vintage dresses, fabulous corsets, brilliant headgear and stunning cakes as well as exceptional photographers, beautiful, bespoke stationery, fantastic florists and more. There’s retro and romantic entertainment and of course there’s always cake served on Bristol Vintage’s very own crockery. Like last year, there are goodie bags for the first 250 visitors and entry is completely free.
Last year was incredibly exciting for Bristol Vintage with growing wedding orders and even supplying crockery for the fabulous Miss Marmite Lover for her festival pop-up dinners.
This year Bristol Vintage has a few more things up its sleeve and, having just supplied the M-Shed with Babycham glasses for it’s fabulous Norman Parkinson launch Ali is now working with the RWA on a Mother’s Day afternoon tea in the stunning RWA building. So if you'd like to get in touch or you're planning a wedding or party, come along to the fair on 26th February and meet Ali in person, or you can email Bristol Vintage at firstname.lastname@example.org
