Are you getting married? Have you just had the all important ring put on that finger? Then you are probably looking for the ideas for your wedding day.

The internet is a great place for getting ideas but can sometimes be overwhelming especially where you need local suppliers for some of your wedding needs. One of the best ways to source suppliers (and one of the most enjoyable ways!) is to visit local wedding fayres. You will normally find the main wedding venues will hold wedding fayres twice a year (between January and March and then September to November). If you are right at the beginning of planning this gives you the opportunity to visit some of the potential venues as well as meeting other suppliers. Many of the venues will provide welcome drinks and canapes on arrival so you get a little taster of what they can do for you.

In general you will get a broad spectrum of suppliers such as photographers, cake makers, florists, bridal shops, menswear providers. Many venues will also dress rooms so you can see how they may look on the big day or, if they can’t do this at the wedding fayre, they may hold additional open evenings.

We love the wedding fayres. We get to meet potential wedding couples and chat about their requirements for their wedding photography. We always take some albums to show whole weddings along with framed pieces and a screen with a slideshow. It is really important that you get to see a variety of work from any photographer you are considering and where possible to see a whole wedding. We have favourite photos from each wedding we photograph but you want to know that the work is consistant for the whole of your big day. The wedding fayres that we will be attending in 2013 are as follows:

Draycote Hotel, Rugby

Brownsover Hall Hotel, Rugby

Dunchurch Park Hotel, Rugby 

Stanbrook Abbey, Worcestershire

The next one is this Sunday (24th February) at the Draycote Hotel so hope to see some of you there.
