The Big Wedding Weekend has been going for several years now and so far over one hundred couples have tide the knot at the iconic grade 1 listed Royal Festival Hall. We absolutely love the idea of this - it's perfect for couples on a budget or who have recently got engaged and haven't got time to organise a summer wedding, but really want one! They have two packages - (1st is only £2450, 2nd is £3450) - unbelievably reasonable and unheard of to have the opportunity to marry on the Southbank with view of the Thames at an affordable cost.
We have several pretty wonderfully unusual wedding venues on the site and these are four of my absolute favourites. The main picture is of Brunel's ss Great Britain, a beautiful ship in the heart of Bristol's harbourside. The whole ship is available for exclusive hire, you can say your vows on the Promenade Deck underneath the beautiful skylight, before moving to the grand First Class Dining Saloon for your wedding breakfast....
'Most Curious, is THE wedding show for the style savvy couple.' That's how they describe themselves, and they are not wrong. We absolutely love the Most Curious wedding Fairs, in fact most definitely our favourite wedding fairs around.
Most Curious carefully handpicks its gang of exhibitors who range from the very coolest of the established brands to up and coming makers working from their bedrooms, kitchens, studios and raw imaginations.
So if you are creative, enjoy good design, are expressive and discerning with your choices for your clothes and home, then chances are you’ll be hoping to draw inspiration for your wedding from your lifestyle trends…. This is the fair for you!
Becky Hoh-Hale, the founder, was formerly an assistant editor of luxury interior design magazine. She set up vintage china and prop hire and events company A Most Curious Party, following a disheartening experience with finding creative suppliers for her own wedding in 2008. This developed into organising A Most Curious Wedding Fairs in 2011. It has grown from strength to strength since then and is now the place to go for the discerning and creative-hungry most curious couples.
We are all so loving the new BBC adaptation of Tolstoy's War and Peace. Each episode is breathtakingly beautiful; the costumes esquisite, the locations stunning. Our only fault is that it is always over too soon. So why not prolong this gloriousness and create your own wedding based on the Napoleonic Russian aristocracy?
