You’ve decided to get married. Congratulations! You’re on cloud 9. That is, until newly-engaged-bliss turns to wedding-planning-overload! Whether you’re recently engaged or a few months or weeks from walking down the aisle, you’re always on the lookout for that last piece of the wedding planning puzzle – a show-stopping wedding dress, a killer pair of heels, a yummy wedding cake or a videographer you trust to capture every special moment of your wedding day.

Whether you’re recently engaged or a few months or weeks from walking down the aisle, you’re always on the lookout for that last piece of the wedding planning puzzle

Most modern couples now use Google, online wedding directories and other services to help them find what they’re looking for. But a well-organized wedding fair is still one of the best ways for couples to find and truly connect with wedding suppliers who can help them plan Day 1 of their lives together — their wedding day.

The problem is that standard wedding fairs can be dull, depressing affairs — a cross between a sterile trade show and cattle herding on a ranch.

The No Ordinary Wedding Fair is a modern wedding fair that’s designed to be the exact opposite! Part wedding fair, part pop-up film, part dance showcase, The No Ordinary Wedding Fair, 8th March 2015 will be held in the mezzanine of none other than the London’s leading dance theatre, the iconic Sadler’s Wells in London’s Islington neighbourhood, just a stone’s throw from the trendy Upper Street in Angel.

With a focus on young and vibrant wedding suppliers who offer something a little bit different, the No Ordinary Wedding Fair gives couples a chance to meet with wedding suppliers they might not come across anywhere else.

“Our vision is to inspire couples and help them plan a wedding that’s truly personal and creates a strong foundation for their marriage,” says Tash Anderson, Founder and Managing Director of No Ordinary Wedding.

With the promise of wedding eye candy everywhere, music, dancing, movies, popcorn and bubbly, those who attend can expect to be inspired and to have a fun day out whether they go with their other half, wedding party or a group of friends and family members.

What brides want is a modern wedding fair that’s out of the ordinary!

The No Ordinary Wedding Fair programme includes:

o   Alternative Wedding Fair: A chance for engaged couples to meet with young and vibrant wedding suppliers who offer something a little different – from up-and-coming wedding dress designers to artisan wedding cake makers, quirky jewellery designers, avant-garde wedding videographers and more.

o   Pop-up Dance: Dance instructors perform and demonstrate different dance styles & lead couples in mini first-dance lessons.

o    Pop-up Music: Musicians & entertainers give visitors a taste of their tantalizing sounds.

o   Pop-up Film: Couples can sit back & have some popcorn and bubbly while enjoy the screening of the acclaimed independent film, 112 Weddings from award-winning filmmaker, Doug Block.
