What a fabulous day we had at the Christchurch Wedding Fair. It was the first time we had zones and it worked so so well. Most of the guests, brides and grooms to be were saying how much they enjoyed the relaxing feeling which is exactly what we were looking to achieve – inspire.

I’m pretty sure the photos will say it all …This post is quite long but full of beautiful photos and I just couldn’t possibly shorten it – there are many more fab pics so look out for the full zone posts soon.

Don’t forget the fair was brought to you by Coco Lily Events who also plan and style wedding around the country.

In the Industrial Zone we had Sophie from VINTAGE & WHITE , Ginny from CHARMED FLOWERS ,  the CAKE EATING CO.  and the boys from Lovelight Wedding Cinema and Photography ( who also did the video of the day which we can’t wait to see)

Anyone ever seen an upside down cake? Totally original.

Yum lots of tasters…

Outside we had the Kiwi Tipis and our Seaside Romance Zone. In the Tipis we found A LITTLE TOUCH OF BEAUTY who styled the Tipis and the tables, MISS LILLY’S  who served us coffee all day, thanks, and she also made some amazing cakes on display, NECTAR made sure there were amazing flowers everywhere,  LOUISE ANDERSON, had her dresses on show and all the photos were taken by Andy Brown with some yummy jars from Sweet Mason and music from Nick Lee.
