If you've seen my blog before I'm sure you've come across me talking about the unusual Shropshire wedding venue Walcot Hall as it's pretty much my favourite place to shoot! They hold an annual wedding fayre there in the Spring so I jumped at the chance to exhibit at such a beautiful place.
One thing that's struck me since moving back to Shropshire is the wonderful sense of community in the wedding industry, and this was really apparent at the wedding fair. I was inbetween the lovely Tabitha from Tabitha MacCurrach-Paine and Victoria from The Flower Garden who I really hope to see again on shoots or wedding meet ups!
Just before the doors opened and the lovely brides and grooms came in I whizzed round and took photos of the stall, a nice way to meet all the suppliers and give them a reminder of the day.
Exhibiting at fairs is one of my favourite way to meet people for my business - there's nothing like talking to someone face to face about your wedding, and as a bride of groom you get such a better feel for a photographer when you meet them in real life. I'm hoping to do lots more Shropshire wedding fairs this year now I'm back, particularly in some of the lovely local village halls around Shrewsbury!
