Cool wedding fairs are becoming almost like the very weddings that they rebelled against, a little bit cookie cutter, a little bit formulaic, you know what to expect and set in their ways. Well just like founder Becky Hoh-Hale thought bigger and a little different with her own wedding in 2008, she’s pushing her wedding fair above the parapet, letting it stand apart and do it’s own thing.

A Most Curious Wedding Fair will be taking over Brick Lane’s Truman Brewery for three days this weekend showcasing over 70 unique bespoke new, emerging and vintage designers that span every genre and corner of wedding curation for the best possible big day.

Featuring the best new talent across the board – hand crafted couture dresses, bespoke, cool groom options, vintage, new designers, accessories, jewellery, floristry, photographers, videographers, music, stationary, cakes, food and much, much more…
