Thanks again to Pat and Marie for finding me a space at the Walton Park Wedding Fair. Had a chance to chat to loads of creative people there who work so hard to create the perfect wedding with their beautiful cakes and flowers, clothes and cars. A chance also to explain what a Wedding Celebrant ‘is’ and ‘can do’ to create a wedding.
A special mention to Spirit Wedding Cars, Honeybunch Cake Company, Susan at Portishead Wedding Flowers, and Peter and Jason, photographers at Peter Nicholls (recognised several of my weddings in their impressive portfolio of work), and the girls at 1st Choice Florist.
Interesting chat with Julie of ‘Ladies Day’ in Westbury on Trym about the problems that older brides have with finding outfits that are flattering and romantic — and not ending up feeling depressed by having to try on gowns designed for young bodies in surroundings designed for younger brides. Good idea, Julie, and I wish you success as there is definitely a market there.
