28th October 2012 – The Old Sessions House, Clerkenwell EC1M 4NN
The count down begins with less than a week to go till I exhibit at Zoe Lem's Vintage Wedding Fair. With over 15 years as a stylist, Zoe Lem is hosting her fourth fair at the Old Sessions House, London.
“Vintage has become such a huge trend in both mainstream fashion and in particular the wedding market. I believe our Fair is different from others for two main reasons.
The first is that it showcases the glamorous edge to vintage which is, I believe, the side worth revisiting; less aprons and teacakes and more Hollywood glamour.
The second is that though the fair is about inspiring brides and giving them beautiful food for thought it is also about education so that brides can understand those elements indicative to each era and how to revitalise them whether teaching on which era suits which body shape or how to hold themselves on the day as, for example, the 1930’s ladies would have done, how to create the perfect victory roll, how to dance as they did in the 1940’s and lots more…”

What to expect at the fairThere will be both original vintage and vintage inspired goods and services including Zoe’s own new vintage style wedding dresses which will be available on the day plus fashion shows, live dancing, singing, vintage dj’s, hair and make-up demos, champagne/martini bar, tearoom, charm school and lots more. Suppliers will cover all areas needed to plan the perfect vintage wedding from Photographers, videography, florists, dresses, accessories, shoes, catering, stationary (like me with Lovely Designs!), crockery, props, entertainers and much more.
Preparations for my lovely standI have been super busy buying props, spraying props, making signage, cards and flyers, and generally tearing my hair out and go slightly mad!
Here are some images of my progress.
