Hey there weekend lovers! I didn't want to let this weekend pass by without me telling you all about the stupendously *brilliant* event that is The Glasgow Wedding Collective – basically, a super-cool, refreshing alternative to the ‘traditional’ wedding
exhibition that is being held on 1st September from 11am to 5pm at The Lighthouse, just off Buchanan St in Glasgow.
With free entry.
And I'll be there exhibiting and signing copies of my book!
Wahoooo! I'm so so excited!
I always wanted to get involved, and really get out there when it came to promting my book, Style Me Vintage: Weddings. I wanted to meet the real brides and people that help make Love My Dress such a huge success. Exhibiting at a handful of carefully considered and selected wedding fairs means that I'm reaching out to those readers who truly represent the heart and essence of not only my blog, but my beautiful book too. And after spending most of last summer holed away writing my book, meeting people, exhibiting and doing book signings is something I'm absolutely relishing right now. It's wonderful to now be able to get out there and really celebrate the book.
So, what about this event, and why am I getting involved?
The aim of The Glasgow Wedding Collective is to handpick and bring together a selection of exciting,
independent and vintage style wedding suppliers from
throughout Scotland. Co-founder Gillian Lawtie of Christopher Currie Photography tells us more…
'We wanted to create somewhere for brides to find
like-minded top quality companies who pride themselves in their
creativity and are usually found more off the beaten wedding track. The Glasgow Wedding Collective showcases all that’s good and unique in the industry and gives brides
a chance to create a day in their own individual style.'
'Our range of
suppliers not only compliment each other beautifully but having
collaborated on many a wedding together they create the best possible
service and styling team’s around.'
'Our handpicked fairs take place at the beautiful gallery lofts of The Lighthouse,
a central Glasgow hub known for its dedication to the arts. Expect the
most sought after & creative suppliers in Scotland curated in a
gorgeous showcase space & pop-up bridal market.'
