What a Wildly Successful Wedding Fair!

What a Wildly Successful Wedding Fair!

You've blown our socks off yet again! Another Wilder Fair was an outrageous success and a truly raucous celebration of all the fun we had to live without for far too long these past few years...

Back with a boom- and a bash and a crash and cacophony of colour - that's the way we like to do it!

Here's a big fat thank you to all who came and made it so fantastic, we hope you love the pro photos by Eve Dunlop and brilliant video by Gary Nunn as much as we do...

In fact we enjoyed ourselves so much we're doing it all again! Pop the 11th September 2022 in your diaries now to save the date: our final wedding fair of 2022.

Grand entrance

You may have had to queue a little longer to get in (as there were so many of you!) But there were a whole host of festival and circus performers to entertain and create a grand entrance...

At the front of the house and on the lawns were all the fantastic festival feel performers organised by arts & culture programming extraordinaire Emma Purvis
