I try, where possible, to only do one wedding fayre a year. Sometimes two if I am pushed. BUT for some inexplicable reason, I booked myself for two wedding fayres on one day last weekend and what fun it was too. I had booked myself into the rather lovely Penarth wedding fayre, one that I have done for a few years now as it is a great small fayre that is fun to take part in. I then took a phone call from Pencoed House a few months ago that offered me a place at their fayre. Penarth wedding fayre is organised by Rachel from
Penarth wedding fayre is organised by Rachel from Rachel Burgess Bridal Boutique and John Bruno from John Bruno Total Fitness. I met many great couples (mainly Brides, mothers and friends) and really looking forward to meeting some of them over a coffee to discuss their wedding day. I was there from 11 till about 2.15 when I had to head over to the other wedding showcase as Emma was looking after that for me. I was helped out by my lovely friend Aimee who was on the door checking in brides. She packed up the stuff I did not take with me and took it back to Cardiff for me. She was a star – thank you lovely. Anyway when I left I loaded the car and then …. it would not start!! I had left the hazard lights on!! I was not happy but luckily Simon from Ebony and Ivory Wedding cars gave me a push. Massive thanks for that Simon … saved my bacon.
The other wedding fayre (looked after by my lovely wife) was at Pencoed House and I found out about their showcase day a month before and was kindly invited by them to attend alongside Cresta Caterers and Spiros. There were also a couple of other photographers there as well – which does make it tough when you are in a small space next to them. Thye were both lovely though and although it had quitened down by the time I got to Pencoed House at 2.45 – I still had a couple of chats and my wife spoke to loads of lovely couples in the opening hours and had some lovely comments about my photos from them too. I really liked the new wedding fayre set ups that were made from nessecity and for ease of putting up and taking down. It looked great in both venues and I hope that people who saw it thought so too. It certainly allowed for loads of photos to be shown off.
After that it was lovely to pack up, finish and go have food with my family and a well deserved pint.
