I can’t believe it’s already been a week since I paid A Most Curious Wedding Fair a visit at London’s Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane.
The sheer brilliance that is Most Curious’ director, Becky Hoh-Hale, and her team of talented creatives truly nailed it (again) this year, with a collective of chic, original and super cool suppliers, designers and artists…
Did I swoon much?
You’re damn right I swooned!
Well, lemme tell yah: that was most certainly NOT the case at Most Curious!
From the moment I walked up the stairs into their effortlessly cool venue, ’til the moment I finally left (some 5 hour later!) everything looked good. Like, REAL good.
So, what’s the deal?
For those of you new to the scene, Most Curious is ‘THE wedding show for the style savvy couple’. Becky and her team aim to create a space full of style-led ideas, avoiding any labels (vintage, alternative, designer… You know the kind!) they work hard to keep it simple and, in doing so, completely freeing for the engaged couple.
No stereotypes. No traditions (unless you want them!). No limitations.
Put simply, when it comes to your wedding, nothing is set in stone, and the vibe at Most Curious really personifies that; anything’s possible.
…Now, you know me, I LOVE a bit of bridal fashion, and nothing says free-spirited more than a bridal outfit that breaks all the rules, and my goodness, did the Most Curious Catwalk do just that! Check it out, and keep your eyes peeled for one of our all-time favourite pieces, the pressed flower Meadow veil by the totally divine Ann Marie Faulkner…

This year saw two catwalks at Most Curious…
BOHO LUXE MEETS BOHO MINIMAL: ’70s vibes meet simple shapes and a floral, painterly feel’
…and later in the afternoon…
HEROES: ‘In homage to one of the greatest coolest and creative forces the world has ever known, we go Bowie Bridal, just for one day’
Photo c/o the super lovely Amanda of Doris Loves Lights! She was my super star all day, guarding my ridiculously heavy bag whiles I went off galavanting! MWAH!
Heaven forbid I lead you to believe that it was all about the bridal dresses and jumpsuits though, my gosh no!
So, without any further a-do, here’s a few more candid shots (from my loyal, hard-working little iPhone!) to give you a taster of what it’s all about! I’ll link the images to their companies where possible (if my memory will allow!), so simply click an image if you see something you like, but if y’all wanna see a full list of the London Fair’s suppliers featured in the shots, click here to have a read!
From the incredible paper-born decor of Things by Laura, to the delicate colour-dipped hanging vases of UBYME, not to mention the awesome styling power of Sorrel & Steve, every corner I turned there was another mind-blowing decor installation to behold!
I also fell head over heels for beautiful pallet furniture of Gas & Air (super customisable furniture hire that’s just PERFECT for an outdoor wedding) and of course I had to mention the lovely gals from Patchwork and incredible online solution to all your gift list worries (need funding for your hen party? Or how about a neat way for your guests to contribute towards your house savings? No problem!)
Remember that time I met bridal designer, Kevin Muscat and he stole a little piece of my heart?
I had the pleasure of meeting FBrides fave, Ed Godden, as well as the lovely Paola de Paola and how could I not mention the amazing VintageBooth.Me (sister company of lovely photographer, Lee Garland) and a new discovery for us, the awesome concept of Boxless Booths!
Some of the UK’s most talented florists had styled their blooms to the nines and, make no mistake, they were absolutely gorgeous.
I fell pretty hard for the incredibly atmospheric flowers of the Wild Fox, the utterly dreamy headpieces of Sophie and Luna (thanks for the gorgeous pressed-flower confetti!), then there were One Flew Over’s flowers ‘by Girls Who Like Good Flowers’ (the eucalyptus in their arrangement had me with hearts for eyes) and of course the stunning (and I mean stunning) hand picked blooms of the Electric Daisy Flower Farm…
If you missed it this year, be sure to get your sweet little hiney down there in 2017, and if London doesn’t work for you, make sure you check out their Norwich show too!
In the mean time, keep your eyes on A Most Curious’ Instagram feed to hear all about their exciting projects – there’s MUCH inspiration to be had!
Peace + Love
