13th February 2020
On 9th February 2020 we held our 4th wedding fair here at Hemswell Court. Despite the terrible rain and wind from our visiting storm Ciera our suppliers arrived in good time to set up their stands ready to meet our brides and grooms.
Each bride or groom who registered with us was entered into a prize draw to win a bottle of champagne and was given a complimentary goodie bag.
Our kitchen provided a tasty selection of homemade canpés for our guests to try and our staff were on hand to show our 5* AA rated guest accommodation and to also offer advice on booking our venue.
We had a great selection of local suppliers, many who support us on a regular basis and some new who I am sure we will continue to work with, these include the following –
Blush Venue Décor and The Florist decorated the private dining room with stunning table decorations and a beautiful flower archway
Candy Cart Creations showed off a variety of games which can be played inside or out
Fallen Hero and David Jason Formal Wear advised our grooms how to dress for their big day with stylish suits
Fabulous Cars unfortunately because of the weather could not bring their vintage car to show off but still attended to offer their services
Magic Images Photo Booths one of our new companies allowed us to play with the magic mirrors creating some funny images of our staff (which I am not allowed to show or our staff will go on strike lol)
Our local registrar was also unable to attend due to the weather but has always supported our other fairs
Emily Martin Music and James Kirman where on hand to entertain with beautiful singing and playing from Emily and magic tricks by James
Our florists Justine Gould Flowers by Arrangement and Fabulous Flowers both of who are regular visitors showed off their talents with creative floral displays
Beauty demonstrations where provided by The Style Lounge hairdressers and Rochelle Rose Village Retreat who attended for the first time
Our photographers PM Photography Ltd, Robert Scatliffe Photography and Massey Photography where on hand to offer their services and display their albums which help keep those precious memories
Neon Sky Fireworks again one of our regular visitors, were able to discuss display options for your evening reception
Polka Dot Creations who attended for the first time showed their bespoke stationery and signs
Wedding accessories to include love letters, post boxes and signs where shown by Jasmine Tree and My Wedding Hire
Hair accessories by Hats and Tiaras where shown for the first time this year
Delightful cakes where on display by One Stop Cake Shop who also decorated the grand entrance hall with their balloon arch display
Our In House Disco and DJ were present with the colourful uplighters which often set off the Ballroom for the evening reception
And last but certainly not least our bridal wear suppliers, Stephanie Kate Bridal Couture, Osh Gosh Gowns and Bridal Reloved Caistor showed off stunning dresses for the radiant brides
Overall we had a successful wedding fair with lots of positive comments from both suppliers and visitors. A big thank you to all our brides and grooms and their family and friends for turning out on such an awful day and to all our staff for the wonderful organisation of the fair.
