If you need something to look forward to then get your diaries ready and make sure you don’t miss “A Gloriously Vintage Day Out and Wedding Fair” on Sunday 12th May 2013.
Held at Mount Ephraim, a fabulous Edwardian Country House near Faversham, this fantastic day out is a must for all vintage wedding fans. The “Just Say I do” vintage wedding section includes cake makers, photographers, florists, event stylists and a range of beautiful wedding dresses to keep any Bride happy plus there will be a “Make, do and mend!” craft area for anyone eager to try their hand at DIYing their wedding.
For “A little of what you fancy”, the retro section has home wares and clothing,
plus outside in the “Mustard & Cress” area you can treat yourself to all kinds of delicious offerings from vintage ice-cream suppliers and sweet stalls set amongst retro caravans and cars. And take the kids along as there’ll be free entertainment all day to keep them happy.
The fun kicks off from 11am and will swing on in true vintage style until 5pm.

Todays inspirational style steal is from the unique team that is Bespoke Collective and was shot on location in the Mansion House at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park.
Bespoke Collective is a brand new company made up of Matt Ebbage the photographer, JoJo Pepper the beautician, makeup artist and hairstylist Jessica Hawkins and the jewellery design talents of Faye Holmes.
We really love the vintage vibe in this shoot alongside the sheer prettiness of the gorgeous lace dress.

If you’re planning a vintage wedding then you’d be best to take a little road trip this Sunday (24th March) down to the South Coast to Belle’s Vintage Wedding Fair at Hove Town Hall. There will be over 50 vintage inspired wedding suppliers there, each one really talented and inspiring, who will be happy to give you more than enough advice to create the best vintage wedding ever.
The entertainment is reason enough to visit as acts playing include Johnny Zero, Cherry Morello, Maria Sorian, Mr Tunes Vintage DJ, Noelle Vaughn and finally Anna Sin and the Jukebox Bandits.
Egg & Spoon will be providing a pop-up tea room, so you can stay for lunch as well as get a vintage style change with hair and make-up artists, Coco Belle Styling and Pretty Pout.
A new edition to the fair is the MAKE area where DIY brides can learn how to make special handmade pieces such as jam jar flower displays for your wedding. There’s also vintage transport ideas including the event organiser herself, Kelly Wickson, with her Sussex Love Bug that started the whole wedding fair idea.
Kelly says “I started Belle’s Events in 2012 after a rather disastrous visit as a supplier to a local wedding fair with my Sussex Love Bug. I wanted to create a fair for couples and suppliers to come together under one big vintage inspired roof to chat, enjoy the atmosphere and discover that there are people out there that will love what you do or simply ‘get you’, that’s what it’s about after all, finding the right person to help create your vision. A year on the wedding fairs are becoming ever more popular and attract couples from near and far who are desperate to find something different, unique and really special.”
Like Kelly says this isn’t your average wedding fair – it’s a wedding fair and then some. So even if you’re not getting married but just enjoy vintage life you’ll love this for a fun day out. Plus the first hundred guests through the door get a complimentary glass of Processco.
Entry is £3 and the fair runs from 12noon to 5pm. For more details check out Belle’s Events.
