A date for your diary! This May, a new breed of wedding fair is coming to the Midlands – The Unconventional Wedding Festival…
Modern couples looking for unique wedding ideas, take note. On May 11th and 12th, The Unconventional Wedding Festival will be holding a wedding fair that’s right up your street! Being held in the grounds of Stanford Hall, a stunning Grade 1 listed William & Mary House in the heart of the Midlands, the wedding fair has been designed to cater for all the very latest wedding trends.
Aimed at couples who want their weddings to be a little different, the fair is unconventional in every sense of the word. As well as boasting a wide array of alternative and unique suppliers and performers, the set up is also wonderfully alternative too. Rather than walking into a daunting room full of stands, Festival goers will be able to spend the day wandering around eight themed Zones, experiencing different styles of wedding and soaking up the ideas – from Sci-Fi to Vintage, Urban to Fairytale, and much more.
You’ll also be able to witness (mock) wedding ceremonies, wander around the reception venue, sample the delights on offer from the Food and Drink vendors, and enjoy the wide range of entertainment across the site. You’ll also be able to book to meet suppliers in one of the comfy consultation areas.
During the event there will be a range of exciting things going on across the Festival site. A pop-up spa will be offering pampering services during the festival, plus discover suppliers offering wedding preparation, on-the day health and beauty services and even fun hen party ideas. Plus, the pop-up Hotel will be showcasing the variety of temporary accommodation options for couples looking to extend their wedding festivities, or find a fun hen party idea.
If you’re searching for your perfect dress or bridal outfit, the Style Zone will give you a closer look at the latest in alternative wedding fashion. You will be able to browse the outfits and accessories, try things on and see first-hand the work and talent that goes into crafting these exquisite creations.
Why not make the day extra special and upgrade to a VIP experience? This includes VIP parking, fast track entry, exclusive access to our VIP Zone where you’ll be able to kick back in comfort and enjoy a chilled glass of bubbly, lunch vouchers so you can choose what you want to eat from the amazing vendors across the site, and a luxury Goody Bag.
