Should 2022 have brought the promise of wedding bells, then it’s likely your weekend diary is already suspiciously busy with huge sales fairs and venue visits.
Of all the shows out there, Manchester’s Indie Wedding Fair is a pretty special experience–a celebration of independent makers, designers, planners and players who can help make every big day unique. From frocks to flowers, camera crew to cakes, there are stalls representing just about everything a soon-to-be-wed couple could need.
The White Yard, Erica Stacey and The White Closet have some of the most stunning couture collections of wedding dresses out there, the team at Craft are ready to talk bridal makeup, while Tweed & Groom are taking care of fine suits, shoes and ties.
Once the wedding couple looks beautiful, you’ll want to think about staging. Inner City Weddings, Hipswing and The Final Edit are the guys to talk to about all things planning, The Custom Botanist and Frog Flowers can help with the wildest of floral fantasies, and Hazel “The Rainbow Celebrant” will introduce nearly-weds to her fresh approach to the ceremony itself.
Photographers, stationery designers, cake artists, DJs and live musicians complete the impressive talent gathered for the event, plus there’s the venue to consider. Event host FiveFourStudios is a pretty stunning proposition—a modernist warehouse transformed into a 200-capacity party space. Make sure you leave time for a good look around.
Head over to the Indie Wedding Fair’s Instagram to get a sneak peek at what’s in store at this weekend’s event.
