Exhibition time! At the Legacy Botleigh Grange Hotel Wedding Fayre, Feb 2011
At the end of February we exhibited at a fabulous wedding fayre at The Legacy Botleigh Grange Hotel in Hedge End, Southampton (organised by Stylish Events Wedding Fayres). It was our first time with this organiser and I have to say it was absolutely terrific event with upwards of 400 brides, grooms and their families enjoying a wide range of wedding supplier stands and, in my opinion, quite the BEST fashion show I’ve seen at such an event!
The Legacy is a super building, built in the 17th Century (and visited by one Oliver Cromwell no less!) and the banqueting room was filled to bursting with suppliers of every type of wedding service you could need including florists, hair & make-up stylists, photographers, entertainers, wedding stationers and, of course, cake-makers.
Quite the highlight of the day came with the professionally choreographed fashion show – lasting approximately 20 minutes and set to upbeat & contemporary music that really got my feet tapping! In addition to bridal gowns, grooms, bridesmaids & page boy fashions were show-cased as well as the very important Mother of the Bride/Groom. The clothes were supplied by local fashion houses and retailers – all of whom were exhibiting at the show.
Here are a few pictures I took through the event, of my fellow exhibitors, my own display stand and the fashion show.
At the end of the day Mr Cupcake and Bake and I returned home exhausted but happy, having enjoyed many a pleasurable chat with brides and grooms excited to be organising their very special day.
We are really looking forward to doing it all again on 27th March (at The Meon Valley Marriot Hotel) and 19th June (at The Royal Marines Museum, Southsea) and right now I’m busy thinking up new designs to display on our stand… hope to see you there. All the best.
