Getting married but don't want the meringue dress and disco reception? Then be at the Town Hall on Sunday, for a chance to source some weird and wonderful alternatives!
From the team behind Secret Vintage comes the unique and alternative world of weddings! Hosting its inaugural event on Sunday 4th June in the iconic venue of Colchester Town Hall, the Weird and Wonderful Wedding Fayre was born in response to the requests of both shoppers and traders alike.This inaugural event will bring a whole new world of wedding possibilities to the many vintage, alternative and hipster couples from the region.
As a unique wedding venue with historic charm, the Town Hall is a natural choice to launch the event. The fayre will pull together hand-picked vintage, retro and alternative vendors and suppliers in the huge Moot Hall. The organisers are passionate about supporting indie suppliers, in particular start ups, so visitors to the fayre can source some truly one-off suppliers for their special day.
The fayre will be showcasing some of the suppliers and performers who are available to hire for your wedding- from musicians who will be singing and performing on the day, to the vintage cocktail bar showing off some samples of their cocktails! Plus visitors will be able to experience the magic of Nothing up Our Sleeves steampunk magicians who are available for wedding bookings, and see the gorgeous vintage camper van on offer from Dipdubs.
The fayre opens at 11am this Sunday, 4th June and closes at 4pm, with over 40 traders in attendance. Musicians and magicians will be showcased throughout the day. The first 25 parties through the door will also get a goody bag, a glass of bubbly on arrival and a portrait in the vintage photo booth.
So don't succumb to the usual tired wedding cliches - make your day truly special, and find the venue, musician, dress, entertainer or transport that truly reflects your weird and wonderful side!
