Brides of Culture wedding exhibition ~ March 2012

The Brides of Culture wedding exhibition took place yesterday at the Crowne Plaza, Docklands. It was a lovely sunny day in London Town, and I was excited to meet all of the wedding suppliers on offer. There was an infectious buzz in the air with all the bride-to-be's, and it was also nice to see a good few grooms-to-be there as well.

I wanted to share with you some of the vendors that caught my eye. Please forgive my photography, I received a new camera from the Mr for Christmas and I am still learning how to use it! I had wanted to take video footage, but unfortunately I only managed to snap away. I'll save the video for next time so watch this space.

Bello Creations ~ the place for bespoke jewellery, Tayo, the owner, makes all the pieces by hand.


Candy Rain ~ sweet tooth heaven. Candy tables are an idea borrowed from across the pond, they make a lovely feature at wedding receptions.
