Ok so we are pretty excited , Next month will be the first ever Christchurch Wedding Fair held at the beautiful Cossars Wineshed in Tai Tapu, just 20 minutes from the centre of Christchurch.

This year we are doing things a little different, as we know how overwhelming it can be going to Bridal Expos and getting bombarded by the same kind of vendors, offering the same packages and asking all the same boring questions.

We have decided to follow the international trend and create a fully styled Wedding Fair. Created by the best local boutique vendors, that have been hand picked to help inspire you & make your Wedding day everything you dreamed it would be. This will be a creative bridal showcase, filled with full event styling, live entertainment, local food, coffee & wine. Its about creating an overall experience as opposed to separate stalls for vendors.

Our venue has been broken up into four styled zones, so you can visually see, touch, taste and even purchase what our amazing teams have to offer you. The themes for our zones this year are Bohemian Glam, Woodlands Winter, Beachside Romance and Industrial Chic. In each zone you will see the work from our stylists, caterers, florists, cake designers, stationers, makeup artists, photographers and a whole lot more! Here is some inspiration from Pinterest for you..

Industrial Chic Inspiration:

To keep you inspired some of our vendors have some fabulous opportunities for you to experience while at the Fair this year. We will have lovely goodie bags by The Big Day blog, a vintage styled Lemonade Stand to keep you refreshed as you browse. You can have a little fun being snapped in our photo booth and even get prettied up with a mini makeover by one of our Make up Artists. There is also going to be a great opportunity for couples wanting to get a taste for being in front of the camera before your big day. Photographer Tegan Johnson is offering Mini Engagement Photo Sessions, which you will even be able to take home a couple of sweet images to share with your family & friends.

Bohemian Glam Inspiration:

Our venue surrounded by grape vines, historic hedges, a stony courtyard and the most perfect rustic old barn, will also feature a set up by Kiwi Tipis to give you the ultimate styled wedding experience.

If you are getting married in the region or just looking for some inspiration this is not an event to be missed. With so much to keep you entertained, this will be a fun day out for not only the bride, but also something to bring your hubby, bridal party and the whole family along to!

Keep an eye out for what amazing vendors are in each section- seriously the most sought after in the region..
