On July 2nd,
The Old Finsbury Town Hall, London will play host to the first Vintage Wedding Fair hosted by Zoe Lem who has over 15 years experience as a stylist and vintage collector. The venue is a beautiful old Victorian stain glass building – the perfect place to host a vintage style wedding in fact.
Zoe explains, “The wedding market is ever evolving and the need for something different and the desire for all things vintage has been steadily growing. I have dealt with many brides over the years that are all searching for an original idea and something that goes against the mass produced scary big dress wedding that so many fear. Vintage has become the buzz word in both mainstream fashion and bridal, whether original vintage or vintage inspired.”
“Having launched my own vintage style wedding collection which the key is ensuring that the shape and era are the perfect match for both your body and wedding. I have a clear understanding of the key to the era’s that suit the ladies of today, bringing together for this event the perfect mix of her favourite vintage suppliers.”
The show boasts an impressive selection of vintage wedding suppliers for you to swoon over including
Charlotte Casadejus, Sally Lacock, Zoe Lem bridal, Cherished Vintage, Pennies Vintage and Flor Unikon Flowers.
The show is open from 10am – 5pm and tickets cost just £10. Advanced
tickets can be purchased here and further information on the show can be found on Zoe’s website.
I hope to pop down to the show myself so it would be lovely to see a load of Rock n Roll Bride readers there too!

The Vintage & Alternative Wedding Fair
August 28, 2013
Vintage has become a bit of a dirty word in the wedding world. It's been overdone more than any trend' I've ever known... and in many cases pretty badly. But vintage weddings as a concept are beautiful and some of the most creative and beautiful weddings that I've featured have fallen under that 'vintage' banner. In fact vintage weddings are not limited to pearls, lace and mismatched crockery - they can be so much more than that, the only limit is your imagination.can be so much more than that, the only limit is your imagination.
A Bridal Show with a Difference? Thank Goodness for A Most Curious Wedding Fair
January 29, 2013
Let's be honest, there are A LOT of wedding fairs to choose from these days. In fact British brides & grooms have never had so much choice. Which is clearly awesome, but let's be honest, it can be quite confusing. How on earth are you supposed to know which ones are the best and which ones to actually go to? Aren't they all the same anyway?

It’s Not a Wedding Fair it’s an Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza!
March 6, 2013
Dear internet, there are a lot of wedding fairs in 2013. A LOT. There's also a rather disproportionate amount of them claiming to be of the 'alternative' persuasion. In fact I don't think I've ever heard a word over-used so much to describe something wedding-related since the dreaded 'vintage' invasion of 2011. Whether this is a good or bad thing is still very much up for debate, but here on this little alternative wedding blog (ahem) I pride myself in only showcasing the very best and most exciting wedding fairs in all the land.

One Love: An Inspirational Wedding Show for Gay & Lesbian Couples
September 18, 2013
Although times they are a-changing, gay and lesbian couples have been long overlooked in the wedding industry. While there are many amazing wedding suppliers that cater for and love to work with same-sex couples, there has yet to be a really cool, all inclusive wedding event that all engaged couples - no matter their preferences - can go to and feel comfortable and accepted. Sure, there have been a few magazines and events dedicated to gay weddings, but (and I hate to say it) but most of the ones I've seen have been slightly cheesy and erring on the side of tacky.
The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza is the Best Alternative Wedding Show in The UK, Here’s Why…
October 9, 2013
Call me cynical, but these days, I can't seem to move for a new 'alternative' wedding fair. They're cropping up all over the place this year, but there was just one that started it all...
In early 2012, Sassy of Assassynation Photography, Jo of The Couture Company and Rawhide Corsets and Vikki of Liliia had a dream. They dreamt of a wedding fair that was truly alternative and one that showcased only the best of the best alt wedding suppliers. They wanted to have a place to host the kinds of suppliers they saw ignored by other, mainstream and vintage, wedding events.
