My sisters, Linda, Lesley and I attended the Quirky Wedding Fair today at Belfast's Waterfront Hall. Linda is a talented florist and has a background in interior design and decor. Lesley and I went to help her man her stall and answer questions.
It was fun I enjoyed it. It could almost put me in the mood for a wedding. Some of the amazing talents people have. Its wonderful to see such creative talents, from cupcakes and amazing wedding cakes, including a 4 tier watery wonder with a lighthouse on top and a bottom layer made up of driftwood.
A bevy of glamorous stylists and hairdressers promised to turn you into a burlesque beauty for your big day. Dresses from simple silk shifts to fluffy bejeweled meringues The bridal models were an interesting crew. Supposed to be bridal, and therefore radiant and joyful on their happy day they strutted and pouted about more low rent fashion show than big day beaming. It was a pity really as some of the dresses were glorious.
Another very talented friend was exhibiting also, Moneeza Khan, who makes gorgeous antiqued paper books for carrying treasured memories of weddings, holidays and families
As Linda said the wedding business is a good one to be in, a lot of happy people. I hope they all have wonderful quirky wedding days .
