When Sassy of Assassynation, Jo of The Couture
Company and Vikki of dress company Liliia got nattering over a glass of wine (standard) one evening, they decided that they would put on an 'Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza', with a truly eclectic mix
of brilliantly talented suppliers….
"We want to put on an amazing wedding extravaganza (aka 'fair') that would be
exciting for both the suppliers and couples alike, so we hatched a plan
“A-team” style (Hannibal Smith would be proud)."

"The first show back in November 2012 was an amazing success and was so well received we couldn’t resist the cries from couples and Mo Flo’s alike of 'When are EWE putting on another show??' So with one show under our belts we have launched EWE2!
This will be held on the 24th March 2013 at Fazeley Studios in Birmingham – with lots more awesome suppliers designed to appeal to those brides and couples who seek an alternative style wedding.'

"The idea is that we want people to shake off the shackles of what
is considered ‘normal’ or ‘traditional’ and to take their own
personalities and loves and stamp them on their weddings. With that in
mind we have picked suppliers who can help EWE do that!"
"One thing we can assure you of is that it will be a fun day out,
with tons of giveaways, lots to learn and see and not one bit like a
‘normal’ wedding fair! Suppliers already signed up include Emma Case Photography, Shutterbox Films, Hat Therapy, Prior Engagement Gowns (bespoke historical wedding dresses),
Revive Me Boutique, The Conjurer’s Kitchen, Chris Barber, Little Ruby
Red Cake toppers, Disco Wed, The Rebel Party Band, Crown and Glory,
Toast of Leeds, Elbie Van Eeden Make up Artist and The Vintage Salon to
name but a fEWW.
Check our website for a full list of Mo Flo’s. Have a
ramble around the site, register and get your tickets early at a
BAAAAArgain price of £3!"

"We will have a themed café so you can have a drink and something
to eat as well as a wedding dress walkabout to showcase some of the
gorgeous frocks. There will also be a fun-tastic treasure hunt where
answers to clues can be found on the Mo Flo’s stands.
We want EWE
to get involved, pick stuff up, take a good look, really check out the
Mo Flo’s and ask them tons of questions as they are all a super friendly
"This is no ordinary wedding show, the suppliers aka the Baad Ass Mother Flockers have been chosen and invited based on their personalities, the quality of their end product and the fact that they offer something unique. White linen covered trestle tables are discouraged and hard sells are banished, we want you to come along, have a drink and a good old natter to the Mother Flockers that catch your eye.
The Mo Flo’s are being challenged to create stands that are totally unique and interactive. As well as having awesome Mo Flo’s at the show, we will be running some competitions, having a fashion walkabout/ramble and organising a treasure hunt!"
“In addition to our Treasure Hunt, where visitors can win anything
from free cakes to engagement shoots, makeovers to discount vouchers.
There is an UnBAAAAAleivable Megaprize to be won, comprising £500 pounds off your
wedding photography package with Assassynation – and – £500 off a bespoke
wedding gown with The Couture Company!"
