discoveries from the most curious wedding fair

i got a bit giddy at the most curious wedding fair a few weeks ago. although my wedding was almost 12 years ago and i loved every second of it, i saw such creative and interesting ideas at the fair i’m a bit tempted to do it all over again…here are my highlights:

IMG_0699IMG_0707by far one of my favorite creatives at the fair was natalie from curious fair {the name is a coincidence!} whose stand was next to my friend becky at ivy, pip & rose, who i was helping for the weekend. natalie has a background in costume and theatre design and was such a delight to be around for the weekend. she encouraged becky and i to try on our favorite masks – we are pretty hopeless posers it turns out.

isobel bakes made me stop in my tracks! i love the whimsical touches from this east london baker, who takes the time to draw initial sketches for each cake design.

the beautiful zoe at foxglove studio was one of the most talented florists at the fair. her designs are loose, wild, natural and romantic and i love her tight color palettes. zoe is really easy to chat to and i hope she knows just how gifted she is.

not only did lovely pinar at curious me design help us out with cute handwritten signs for our stand, but she brought along her gorgeous son to the fair who made us all giggle as he wondered around taking it all in. pinar creates some of the most stunning bespoke stationery {have a look at a bohemian wedding styled shoot with ivy, pip and rose here and another collaboration between curious me, ivy pip & rose and photographer britt spring here}and her genuine kindness alone makes her stand out as a wedding supplier.

IMG_0648by far my favorite stand was my friend becky’s! ivy, pip and rose has grown into a full-time business for becky and i was so proud to be helping her, even if my talents only extended as far as spritzing the plants and making sure the tea supply was always maintained. we met some gorgeous brides-to-be who loved becky’s sitting room style display and excellent choice of blooms. wish we could do it all over again! x jo
