In keeping with the growing trend within the industry, the show will be launching a dedicated Vintage Area hosting a handpicked selection of vintage and vintage-inspired suppliers, from dresses and cakes to stationery and styling, plus vintage expert and designer Zoe Lem will be presenting her indispensible advice on how to select the perfect era and the ideal vintage dress, to suit all body shapes and tastes.
Event Director, Alejandra Campos comments: ‘The Vintage area at the show is a reflection of the huge trend for vintage-style weddings that has been so popular in recent years. The National Wedding Show is consistently responsive to the needs of the visitors and exhibitors: brides are always turning their thoughts to the past when it comes to styling their weddings, and we felt that in keeping with the demands of our clientele a dedicated Vintage space at the show would be the best way to present this.
Rachel Simpson’s beautifully unique shoes are an essential for any wedding outfit. Designed in the UK and hand-crafted in Spain, Rachel’s creations are available in a host of colours and styles, including gorgeous peep-toe T-Bars and a twenties flapper-style Mary Jane.
Perfect for a vintage-themed affair, White Knot* offers contemporary designs that push beyond the traditional. With a stunning collection of classic styles as well as a bespoke service, it’ll be hard to choose just one favourite!
Some believe the wedding cake is almost as important as the dress. The Vintage Area will host a delicious array of delicate creations from the likes of Yummy Little Cakes**, Red Cake Company** and Miss Lola’s Bakehouse**, each creating sumptuously decadent wedding cakes, cupcakes, cake pops and favours perfect for a quinessential tea-party theme.
All this, plus some of the finest vintage-inspired dresses, accessories and favours around, not to mention some of the country’s most skilled photographers, including Jacqueline Helen Photography* who cleverly captures the most delicate of moments.
