A wedding fair with a twist is returning to Leicester this Sunday, November 9.

CK Flowers is hosting their second wedding at The Guildhall, on Guildhall Lane, following the popularity of their spring event.

The wedding fair aims to offer a diverse range of glamorous gowns, crafty cakes and both vintage and contemporary wedding dresses.

Carolann Keith, from CK Flowers, said: “We have had so much positive feedback after the spring fair. There’ll be a relaxed environment and it’s more personal than just getting a card and looking at photos.

“The spring fair was really successful, it was the first time we’d done it and around 380 people attended. The idea was to organise it in a lovely space that wasn’t attached to a hotel.”

The wedding fair is free to attend and will be running from 11am until 3.30pm.

More than 25 businesses will be attending the event including The Belmont Hotel, Leicester Wedding Network and The Enchanted Bakery.

Guests will be greeted with a glass of champagne and will be entertained by a live string quartet.

Carolann added: “We have a wide variety of exhibitors and even though we have for example, two cake stalls and two photographers they’re very different. There’s a lot of variety.

“We have a magician who will be going around performing tricks for the brides and grooms. There’ll be wedding hair and make-up demonstrations too.”

Carolann is keen for both new and established businesses to attend her wedding fairs.

She said: “We do give six spaces to brand new businesses at a reduced cost. Our standard price is £125 but new businesses can pay between £50 and £85 up to three or four times.

“It’s all about the exposure. I was a new business at one point. I had to save up £200 to exhibit at a wedding fair once, so I’m very passionate about that.

“Half of the spaces for our next fair on Sunday, April 12 next year have already been filled.”
