The Wedding Fair At ExCeL Review
Ice the Cake visited The Wedding Fair at Excel, London at the weekend, and what a delight it was…
A bright, classy, sophisticated approach to a wedding show, we discovered many unique and beautiful companies on hand to help Bride and Grooms plan every detail of their magical day.
Decadent bubbly, delicious ice cream cones and helpful, well-stocked goody bags spoilt every VIP ticket holder on their way through the show.
The Entertainment Stage was home to some fantastic acts throughout the day. Keeping visitors entertained between the catwalk shows were newly-established Sono Showband, Soul and Motown artist Stacey Sings, SPJ – Dan Jones and The Redfords. We were singing along with our feet tapping at their fantastic renditions of our favourite songs!
The highlight of our trip had to be the stunning catwalk show! What a collection of stunning gowns, pretty lingerie and dapper suits, all beautifully modelled and accentuated by romantic lanterns from Revival Rooms. With fantastic dance routines from the models during the show, there was an added sense of glamour to proceedings, with designers Brides of Berkhamsted, Triumph Lingerie, David’s Bridal and Confetti and Lace gracing the runway. We loved seeing the Groom’s represented too, with Moss Bros and London-based tailoring house Tweed Addict showing off their sharp styles and modern cuts.
Working our way around the fabulous suppliers, we fell in love with the glorious Macarons by Babette! Beautifully intricate as either favours or as your ‘cake’ centrepiece, you won’t be able to resist them. Even the packaging is glorious!
Our attention was soon caught by innovative Light Up Love, a fantastic ‘giant light up letter company’. From £190 for the happy couple’s initials and standing at 1.6 metres tall, they’re guaranteed to catch everyone’s eye and add that magic to your celebrations.
The Wedding Fairs’ next show is taking place at Bluewater in Kent from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th of October, and if you’re attending the Kent show, we wish you a fabulous and inspiration-gathering adventure into planning your big day!
