It was a matrimony of vintage and handmade. The Etsy + Bride Wedding Trunk Show was a celebration of some of the most outstanding wedding sellers from Australia and New Zealand, brought together to commemorate Etsy and Bride’s mutual love of weddings, and executed beautifully in the event space, 1000 Pound Bend.

Over two days, plus an exclusive evening for media and VIP guests, the trunk show hosted hundreds of brides-to-be, bridesmaids, mothers-of-the-brides, fiancees, girlfriends, boyfriends, and of course, Etsy lovers who just came along for the ride.

20 outstanding sellers were exhibiting in person at the event, which ranged from stationery and paper goods, to jewellery, accessories and decor. Old friends were reunited and new friendships were forged.

Guests at the trunk show had the opportunity to take part in three workshops, all hosted by local makers. Origami for those inclined toward precision, Calligraphy for those with artistic tendencies, and Flower Crowns added a bit of festivity to the occasion.

Two professional seamstresses were on hand to take measurements of guests, and over 15 handmade and vintage dresses were on display from designers Australia-wide.

Thanks must go out to our event partner, Bride Australia, to 1000 Pound Bend for being our ever-accommodating hosts, photographer R Weddings, DJ Masters for providing the event’s soundtrack, Dann Event Hire for our furniture and Anna Loughnan for the botanical display.

Last but certainly not least, an enormous thanks to our stallholders for taking part. Travelling to Melbourne from as far as Western Australia and even New Zealand was no easy feat, and this event could not have been so successful were it not for the involvement of our amazing makers.

You may now kiss the bride!
