THE FAKE WEDDING

If you have had your fill of attending wedding fairs that consist of suppliers standing behind a table waiting to nab you, you may like the Fake Wedding...



I love the idea of wandering around a staged wedding day, from the early wedding planning ideas, getting ready, learning to dance, Choosing the wedding cake, and right through to the actual wedding ceremony, feeling as though you part of someone's big day!

The Fake Wedding event is the first of it's kind and is already set to become an annual event. It is being held in the stunning Bristol Venue Kings Weston House, which is one Bristol's hidden gems.  



The Fake Wedding is an immersive wedding fair and the first of its kind. You will be able to see all the wedding suppliers in action as though at a real wedding. Stroll around the stunning rooms of Kings Weston House and immerse yourself in the preparations and events of a wedding day. There will be two ‘weddings’ and oodles of wedding suppliers in action all day.

Our vintage tearooms will be open all day serving morning and afternoon teas and cakes, as well as lovely lunches. Come along with family and friends and make a day of it.

SOUTH EAST TUK TUKS


I just love these Tuk Tuks! Such a wonderful idea for a wedding, and so retro! The South East Tuk Tuks are available to hire for weddings, parties and proms. The South East Tuk Tuks can cater for any kind of event and arrive in style and smiling! Why not stand out from the crowd with a branded Tuk - nothing will get your wedding noticed more than arriving to the church in a Tuk.

THE GREAT HALL WEDDING FAIR 2015

SUNDAY 26TH APRIL -  11 AM - 4 PM


Experience Bristol most prestigious Wedding Venue. The stunning Bristol Grammar School is giving you a very special opportunity to see inside the Great Hall for its ultra-glamorous Great Wedding Fair on Sunday 26 April 2015 from 11am until 4pm. The Great Wedding Fair will give couples a chance to meet a wide range of local and unique wedding suppliers while experiencing the beautiful Great Hall. Do not miss out on being inspired for your perfect wedding.

The Great Hall at Bristol Grammar School dates from the Victorian era and was opened in 1879, making it one of Bristol’s most prestigious and unique venues in the heart of the city. Whether you are looking for an intimate occasion or a lavish celebration, we can transform the Great Hall to suit individual needs. Light floods in through vast leaded windows, and fifty feet above floor-level soars a hammer-beam roof, creating a lofty open space. Accessed via a glorious stone staircase, this is one of the largest venues in Bristol, with a floor-space of 7,000 square feet. We are able to offer seating for up to 380 guests making this the perfect setting for your wedding reception and party celebration. We have had the pleasure in working with a number of experienced catering companies, whom we can recommend to you, or if you would like to provide your own catering company than we would be happy to discuss this. Whatever you decide we can tailor your event to meet your particular needs, tastes and budget requirements.

There are is a wonderful list of wedding companies exhibiting on the day (see the list below).
