Wedding styling & decor

We will have a whole host of wedding inspiration landing here soon, from florals to styling, decor to furniture so do check back soon for the full lowdown... Here's the latest so far:

Flowers by Lucy Charlotte floral design

We were so excited to see the abundance of 'artfully untamed' florals by Lucy Charlotte at recent weddings here we jumped at the chance to invite her to our next wedding fair... We can't wait to see what wild wonders she creates!

Food & Drink

You will not go hungry or thirsty... In fact with this selection of delights, you might well leave stuffed full!

Cocktails on arrival is a bit of a tradition now, we create a signature cocktail from scratch for each and every wedding fair using sustainable and delicious ingredients. You'll have to wait and see what we cook up this time around, we're excited to get experimenting.

Canapes will be whizzing out of the Elmore kitchens all day, a delicious selection of our latest sweet and savoury treats to give you a taste of how good our chefs really are...

You do have to be quick to grab them as the boards tend to be emptied within minutes...

As well as our own freshly prepared food and drink we also have some brilliant and fun festival style food stalls and vans joining us in the Gillyflower meadow...

Whole bridal parties have been brought to tears by their soundscapes, if that's not enough of a reason to keep inviting them back then we're not sure what is!

Pitch up and play

Wedding childcare sounds a bit boring doesn't it? Well trust us when we say Pitch up and Play will completely change your minds on that...

We've actually had couples change their whole wedding plans from adults only to include children after meeting them. Beautiful play tents and gorgeous toys so inviting you'll want to get stuck in yourself!

We really wanted to make extra sure this wedding fair was child friendly as it also falls on mothers day, so please don't leave your little ones at home.
