I often get asked when friends get engaged which wedding fairs they should attend, after all there are a plethora taking place in London but pretty much the top of my list would be the Most Curious wedding fair, the UK’s coolest wedding event featuring some of London Bride’s favourite suppliers is taking place in a few weeks on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th March at the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane.

Perhaps I’m a little biased being based in East London and all, but this design-led fair is for those looking for creative, fashion forward wedding inspiration with it’s 100 exhibitors, all hand-picked for their talents chosen for creative couples who love fashion, design and fun in their everyday lives and want to make sure their wedding day reflects that too.

There is an abundance of cool creative UK talent that you’ll hope to have invovled in your day, such as unique inspiration like paper flowers, vintage glassware and pop-up photo booths to the must-have florals, dresses and accessories.

This is the shows tenth exhibition which is a celebration of the cool up and coming designers and makers in the wedding industry as well as the chicest of the big names, making for an explosion of inspiration for creative couples, with refreshments and exciting fashion shows throughout the day.

True to it’s East-end location, the show will see the newly launched Cereal Killer Cafe providing bowls of crunchy refreshments and with a hip Palm Springs inspired theme it will be a feast of the senses with cool catwalk shows and live music throughout the day. They also have a new ‘Shop The Show’ feature for quick retail fixes from macarons to succulents in pots so you can pick up a few instant treats too!

If you’re heading there, you’ll probably likely to find me in front of the amazing sounding ‘Calligraphy Selfie’ wall by London Bride favourite Lamplighter London which I’m sure will be a hit on the old hashtags.

You may be mistaken to think this wedding isn’t in London given it’s beautiful leafy and spacious surroundings which are brought to life in the radiant sunshine, yet this is indeed a city wedding. Helena and Christian had an incredibly romantic and stylish late afternoon wedding at Chiswick House and Gardens in West London which was captured in that magical light by their photographer, David Jenkins.

“Having moved around the world quite a bit for work, we both agreed getting married at Chiswick House near where Christian grew up was the perfect choice. While Chiswick House and Gardens are quite formal, we wanted to maintain a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Our inspiration for the day was a black-tie garden party. Our colour scheme was based on romantic greys and deep pinks, perfect for a late afternoon wedding.”

Helena walked down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon as it was a song she had learned to play on the piano as a little girl and has always loved the piece of music. They also asked their close friends and family to read the couples favourites poems, such as E.E. Cummings ‘I Carry your heart’ and Robert Frost’s ‘Master Speed’.  The ceremony was very poignant for them and Helena describes the most memorable part of the day “Saying our vows, it was the most moving moment”.

Words from Helena for those planning a wedding; “Enjoy it! It truly is the most beautiful day of your life and you are surrounded by people who love you.”
