Rutland Weddings // Normanton Park Hotel

Nicole Hope Smith Wedding Fayres
Normanton Park Hotel
21st January 2018

This past Sunday I spent the day exhibiting at the Nicole Hope Smith Wedding Fayre at Normanton Park hotel, a great celebration of Rutland Weddings. I have only done two wedding fayres, this one, and the last one put on by Nicole Hope Smith. There’s a couple of reasons for this; one, the venue is amazing, right on the shore of Rutland Water means I have a great view all day, and two, it’s a small, intimate wedding fayre which showcase some of the best businesses which all help when planning Rutland weddings.

I’ve been to wedding fayres as a customer and been overwhelmed, once you’ve seen three singing waiters, you don’t really need to see any more. Nicole creates a great balance of suppliers, who all compliment each other – you could probably book all the suppliers you need from the selection there.

One thing that’s evident in the wedding business is that you need an eye for detail – so whatever it is you’re creating, you need to present it beautifully. I always feel bad as I turn up, put a slideshow on and lay out some of my beautiful albums, when the ladies from Signature Stories next door to me spent two hours putting all of their beautiful dressing items out.

It was a great day, so many wonderful couples to speak to. There was a real mix of visitors, one couple had been engaged a week and didn’t really know where to start, other couples had planned pretty much everything and were just looking for some last minute inspiration. There really was a wide selection of suppliers which meant I think everybody will have found something to help them.

Young // Child Friendly Wedding

I’ve absolutely loved sorting the images for this blog. It was a special wedding for me, which I’ll come on to, but it was also a beautiful, child friendly, wedding.
