So far the last few months I've been a busy little bee working with a couple of my fellow UKAWP wedding planners to organize the Wedding Sanctuary. The Wedding Sanctuary? What’s that you may be asking, surely not another wedding fair-well this is a wedding show with a difference. You see us wedding planners pride ourselves on the great advice we can give, the fabulous suppliers we know and the creative input we can give you for you wedding day so we decided to organise a wedding show with difference with the focus firmly on advice and inspiration…”Your one stop planning refuge”
ASK THE EXPERTS
Top names in the industry such as Julia Boggio Photography, Amanda Austin Flowers, Sternberg Clarke and Gorgeous Film Productions will be paired with the fabulous wedding planners who make up the UKAWP to offer top tips and the opportunity to ask specific questions regarding every element of your wedding day. International bloggers Staggered will even be on hand to assist Grooms with their suits, stag dos and speeches. The Alliance will also be offering a range of talks addressing the trickier issues when planning your wedding like how to set and stick to a budget, and how to get the best from your suppliers. You will also be able to have a personal tour of the sumptuous Somerset House and enjoy the splendid views and facilities on offer.
You will be invited to sip champagne and nibble delicious canapés courtesy of renowned event caterers Table Talk whilst browsing the inspiration zone for design ideas. There will be stunning dining tables that have been styled by wedding planners of the UKAWP including me, alongside Zoe Clark Cakes and Cutture stationery, displaying the very best of what is available to hire for your wedding reception, with pricing guidelines and practical information included.
GET THE LOOK
Brides in need of style advice can meet in the boudoir where the likes of Sassi Holford and Emmy Shoes can dress you from head to toe whilst hair and make-up expert Elle au Naturel and top personal stylist Katrina Choat offer consultations on how to look and feel your absolute best on the day.
The Wedding magazine team will be also be there to chat through your ideas.
