So on Sunday 20th March after months of planning the Wedding Sanctuary at Somerset House in London finally took place. From the very start as members of the UKAWP we set out to create a fair with a genuine difference, one where brides and groom could come for advice and inspiration without the pressure of hard sell which is the norm at so many wedding fairs.
I’d like to think we achieved just that; with a very calm and laid back vibe visitors could stroll around champagne in hand while being served canapés and listening to classical music; take in the lovely surroundings of Somerset House while viewing the beautifully laid out tables of the inspiration zone; sit down and have a chat with handpicked suppliers, all experts in their fields or listen to an informative talk on key wedding planning areas by experienced UKAWP wedding planners.
Here are a few shots of Somerset House set up for the day:
The boudoir Zone where you could see beautiful dresses by Sassi Holford, Shoes by Emmy and speak to Elle Au Natural about all your Hair & Makeup queries.
Room styled by UKAWP with vintage hire items by Vintage Style Hire
The Navy Board Room at Somerset House where the talks took place.
Flowers by Amanda Austin
For a full list of all the fabulous suppliers involved do check out the Wedding Sanctuary website here
Next time I’ll be sharing with you images of the Inspiration Zone which I was the creative director for.
