This is the second Vintage Fair, hosted by Zoe Lem, www.zoelem.co.uk and the Finsbury Town Hall events team, www.oldfinsburytownhall.co.uk and was the most popular yet. Over 200 brides registered for today’s fair and were entertained, styled and fed by some of the best companies in the wedding industry today.
One of today’s highlights was the vintage fashion show that featured models dressed in bridal dresses, ranging from the 1920′s to 50′s. Celebrity stylist Zoe Lem was on hand to give advice on the ideal period dress for certain body types, and encouraged brides to experiment with different styles, and celebrate their size and shape.
The entertainment was quality all the way with My Gosh Marvellous, www.mygoshmarvellous.co.uk a 1940′s styled troupe of vocalists, fan dancers and a nine piece orchestra, helped to create the perfect vintage atmosphere. They certainly raised the energy levels around the hall; and the slick DJ, Count Indigo, www.hello.dj/count-indigo whose ‘guilty pleasure’ archive of music had many feet tapping throughout the day.
Mrs Moore’s vintage store, firstname.lastname@example.org had a gorgeous selection of vintage ware from tea cups to dinner plates; Emmy’s, www.emmshoes.co.uk wedding shoes were a real hit with our brides. They have the most beautiful collection of custom made footware in a variety of toe shapes, heel heights, materials, colours and details.
We decorated our stand with a variety of vintage vases filled with muscari, anemonies, roses and ivy; and inside large cylinder vases we coiled ivy and crab apples, topped with trays of orange and purple arrangements that contained tulips and a selection of the aforementioned blooms. Pasi demonstrated how to produce the perfect bridal bouquet; keeping in the colour theme for an autumn/winter wedding he used rosehip berries, orange tulips and hyacinth stems.
Vintage shows are an ideal showcase for demonstrating what we do so well and so a big thanks to Zoe Lem and Ziggy from Old Finsbury Town Hall for making all of this possible.
