Etsy UK Wedding Event Round-Up

May 22, 2013

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Back in April, with the wedding season once again on the horizon, we were busy pulling together some of the best and brightest wedding finds on Etsy to showcase at our first ever weddings event in the UK.

With one-of-a-kind inspiration for brides, grooms, family and friends we wanted a bit of everything to help get the creative juices flowing!

Guests had the chance to get their hair styled by Emily from The Wedding Hair Company and try on some beautiful wedding hair pieces from the likes of AgnesHart and FancyBOWtiqueBridal.

Endless fun was had in our ‘Stag’ photobooth from LookLook with props from TheHappyWeddingCo.

There were lots of treasures to be found in our Bridal Boudoir, from WillowMoone’s Gatsby inspired dress, to a 1950s lacy tea wedding dress from LizzieJayne. We were also lucky enough to have some fabulous vintage furniture from Classic Crockery who hire out all their top vintage finds for weddings.

Parapluie Events hosted wedding workshops throughout the day where guests could try their hand at creating colour themed pom poms and personalised wedding favours! Each guest was also treated to a delicious wedding cocktail courtesy of St Germain.

We’d like to say a big thank you to all of our partners and of course to everyone who came down and enjoyed themselves!

    I love the dress by Willow Moone. VINTAGE Gatsby to me is the most appealing in every arena. Very pretty choices.

    Gorgeous ans inspirational! There are so many great ideas, it is always pleasure to see so many creative people and their wonderful works!

    I have a friend whose daughter is a recently qualified hairdresser. She found that if she advertised her services as a "wedding hairdresser" she could charge exactly double the price. My advice is to avoid buying anything with "wedding" in the title for your big day if you can, don't buy anything from wedding shows, & save yourself a hefty chunk of money that would be better off going towards your life than funding a glorified party on a single day.
