It’s June. June! Not just the beginning but the second week of June at that! We have a proper backlog of blog posts to share with you and I’ve already spent nearly an hour deliberating about what to share first. One of the REAL weddings that we’ve been involved in? Maybe one of the shoots we have up our sleeve? or the second half of the Scarborough Tattoo Show I promised you last week? Well, it’s actually about time we showed you what went on at the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza. We LOVED being involved in this great event and can’t believe over 2 months has passed since we were joining the ranks of alternative wedding suppliers at EWE in Birmingham.
Part of the reason it’s taken me so long to create this post is because Jay is an insatiable demon behind the camera and produced a whopping 988 images of the weekend. All the images in this blog are Jay’s and we’ve focused just on our part in the event (which in itself is 144 images!) so if you fancy checking out a wider view of the event please feel free to check out here
If you’ve never heard of the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza then you really have been missing out. Set up by Sassy and Jo, it has become a mecca for alternative couples to find all things quirky for their wedding, and as such Legend fits right in! We love being part of EWE, to spend the weekend surrounded by designer makers and creative spirits (with more than a couple of shopping opportunities) is fantastic and as it’s a full weekend affair again it’s another event where all three of us (Rache, Tracy and myself) get to play.
As part of the weekend there are bridal walkabouts… not catwalks as such, but a parade of beautiful brides throughout the venue, weaving in and out of the rooms and bringing the catwalk to the crowds. The event was 2 day this year so the catwalk on the Saturday was a normal bridal parade with a ‘real bride’ parade on the Sunday. Our awesome models Zoe, Katy, Chloe, Stacey, Marcail and Rachel worked like troopers, played like children and looked amazing as always… and our 2 real brides Sarah and Rachel, who we are extremely pleased managed to join us on Sunday totally, entered into the spirit of the show and worked it like they’d been modelling forever. We were one of 4 bridal designers showcasing our gowns; each one of us with our own style and focus which is fantastic to see. Here are a few images from our girls parading around in the processions.
And on top of meeting all you beautiful alternative couples we got to be involved in some styled photos… just check these out!
