The UK’s best and most alternative wedding fair is back to bring EWE a weekend of wonderful wedding wackiness!
11th & 12th of November at The Bond Birmingham
We’ll see EWE there!!
This November, the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza will be returning to amazing venue that is The Bond to bring to you an impeccable array of everything that is different, creative and EWEnique in the world of alternative weddings, but also to celebrate the shows 5th birthday (5 years and 7 shows down, where has the time gone?!).
For 5 years, EWE has brought together an ever growing flock of unique exhibitors and couples alike; Showcasing the UK’s most diverse and talented suppliers in the alternative wedding world, we hope to help you find just what you’re looking for!
The crazy brainchild of Jo from The Couture Company (bespoke BAAAdass alternative bridalwear) Sassy from Assassynation Photography (Awesome Alternative Wedding Photography) and Yasmin from Curious Coco Designs (EWEnique Bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen accessories) this is a wedding fair EWE don’t wanna miss.

Our aim is oh so simple! We want to find all those couples who feel lost in a wedding world abundant with cookie cutter, white wash weddings and welcome them into our flock with open arms. We are a place for those who want to break free from the ties of wedding tradition and have a day that’s unique to them…our Motto “Don’t be a wedding sheep, It’s All About EWE!!
We know that all our couples are completely individual so why shouldn’t your wedding day reflect that? That’s why we have brought together the very best suppliers we could find to help you do your day, your way!! We completely adore what every one of the Bad Ass Mother Flockers (or Bad Ass Mo’ Flo’s for short) do and what they have to offer and we know you will too!! Each of these incredible suppliers provide a diverse and eclectic feast of all things wedding in a fun and friendly environment. We know how stressful planning a wedding can be so we want you to have fun and feel at ease while finding the suppliers for your big day.
So where is this BAAAAdass flock going to be at?
We are so lucky to be able to hold our eclectic fair in one of the most unique venue’s in Birmingham. Located in the heart of Digbeth, our fabulous flock will be returning to The Bond Company yet again! After a successful 2 day event in April, we decided we couldn’t possibly deprive you of a second day so we are bringing you a whole weekend of wedding wackiness. EWE’d be a fool to miss it
What’s going to be happening at the fair we hear you say?
Well we’re glad you asked.
We will be bringing running some rather spectacular competitions, amazing demos and workshops for you to check out as well as our ever-popular treasure hunt where you can win some amazing prizes for your wedding! (this year with a bit of a difference but EWE’ll have to wait and see). As always kids big or small are welcome and we even have a colouring comp for our little (or not so little) lambs to take part in. Witness the fitness in our fantastic Fashion Walkabout and give a cheer to our awesome brides and grooms from few shows ago in our Real Couples Parade.
You can make memories in our fabulous photo booths, shear some shapes to the beat of our brass band madness or get top score at our gaming stations. Do a bit of sheep spotting, take part in a workshop or demo or two, take a bite out of some tasty delights from our street food folks and relax and enjoy some fizzy concoctions at our specialist wedding bars. Say hello to all our Bad Ass Mo Flo’s and if that’s still not enough, we are going to be having our very own Christmas market where you can buy original and unique gifts and treats for your wedding AND Christmas. Two for the price of one!!
If this doesn’t sound like the most fun wedding show out there we don’t know what does!!
Why not make a day of it? In fact…..why not make a weekend of it!?
Who is going to be a part of this fabulous flock?
