On Feb 6th I'll be exhibiting (along with my parents company My Old China) at the Save the Date Wedding Event with a Difference in Derby. I'll be doing live painting demonstrations at my stand all day, so you can see how the magic happens! My stand will be in the 'All Things Pretty' section. Here is some info about the event from the lovely ladies at Save the Date -
The Wedding Event with a Difference Sunday 6th February 2011 (10.30 - 16.00)
The Roundhouse, Pride Park, Derby
So, having been involved in the wonderful world of weddings for over a year, producing Save the Date Magazine (link to: www.savethedatemagazine.co.uk) for the East Midlands, one thing has become very clear to us - wedding fayres have had their day. OK, so, there is the odd few which still offer a glimmer of hope but as far as we can see when we look around, they are getting pretty dull. So, we at Save the Date magazine (link to: www.savethedatemagazine.co.uk) have decided to give them a facelift and bring them screeching into the 21st century.
So, how are we going to do it? Well, we've located an amazing blank canvas called The Roundhouse in Derby (link to: www.derby-college.ac.uk) (don't let the college website put you off, it seriously is very cool) which offers the most ideal location (just a hop across the road from Derby train station (link to: www.eastmidlandstrains.co.uk) and with plenty of car parking) and we've set about getting the most inspirational, creative and enthusiastic wedding suppliers in the business. We've named each area of the event, from 'the style lounge' to 'the blokes corner', 'the look' to 'all things pretty' and the aim is to inspire brides to be with interactive stands and innovative, live demonstrations by our suppliers. There will also be a catwalk show, a champagne bar, toys for the boys (hence the blokes corner), lots of entertainment and an exciting, buzzing atmosphere.
Our aim is to achieve a mix of the Designer Wedding Show in London (in terms of the calibre of exhibitors) with a stripped back, uncomplicated, rustic and totally relaxed atmosphere. The perfect environment for our lovely brides to be to meet and mingle with fellow brides to be and chat with inspirational suppliers who won't be pushing flyers in their face or offering out of date chocolates ;-)
