Thank EWE for Coming to the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza 2017

WOW….Well what can we say?  We had a fabEWElous time at the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza on April 1st and 2nd and we hope EWE did too.  With over 70 incredibly talented exhibitors, fashion parades, a real couples parade, live demos, a treasure hunt, and a party with enough glitter to cover everyone for 2 days straight, this has got to be our BEST SHOW EVER!!

 

On top of all this, we also got to meet such unique and wonderful couples through out the weekend who had some BAAAAdass plans for their big day. We had such an amazing range of visitors walk through our doors on both days so we hope everyone found exactly what they were looking for. We know all our suppliers are totally diverse so we hope EWE found the product or service as unique as you are. 

We had so much of a blast over this incredible weekend that we want to tell EWE all about it.  For those of you who didn’t get to make it to our show or who just want to relive the day all over again, read all about it below and be sure to take a look at at some of the awesome images from the weekend.  Trust me, there are plenty!

 Our amazing show photographer for the weekend was the awesome Ninjographer herself, Jay from Jay Emme Photography. Giving superhero “The Flash” a run for his money, I honestly don’t think Jay sat still the entire weekend as she literally shot anything that moved, breathed or made a peep in her direction. We don’t know how she does it?  With so many stands and incredible couples at the show, we are so grateful Jay was there to capture every one of them.  We really can’t thank her enough and if EWE like the look of all the awesome shots of the show, why not check out her website.

We are also so lucky to be able to hold our eclectic fair in one of the most unique venue’s in Birmingham. The Bond Company is an absolute hidden gem!  Located in the heart of Digbeth, this venue truly is an incredible site. With it’s beautiful cobble stoned entrance, vast array of ideal ceremony or reception rooms, amazing urban and industrial architecture, this really is the ideal location for an city based wedding.  It’s safe to say our exhibitors and ourselves took over every inch of this wonderful place…and Jay has the photo’s to prove it.

    

As well as all the beautiful indoor spaces this venue provides, they also have an amazingly scenic canal side courtyard where our food trucks, bands and other entertainment got to show off their stuff.  This honestly is such an ideal space and location for any couples looking for a unique venue with some picturesque surroundings.  If you didn’t get the chance to attend our show and your looking for the location for your big day, why not  have a look on their website to see all this one of a kind venue has to offer.

 

We also wanna say a massive “THANK EWE” to our wonderful media partner Erica from Mr and Mrs Unique.  Erica has been so supportive in the build up to our Eclectic weekend and we had so much fun working with her.  Mr and Mrs Unique is the go-to, award winning online directory, blog & magazine that features the most spectacularly diverse, creative and extraordinary wedding suppliers in the UK.  These magnificent suppliers (a few familiar faces you may recognise from our flock) have all been hand selected for their originality and excellence and all want to help EWE plan your big day. 

Erica also kindly brought her amazing and brand new magazine to the fair which is chocked full with some of the awesome Mo Flo’s from our show . If you didn’t get a chance to pick up your copy, why not pop over to her website where you can view it online, order your own copy or have a look through some of the amazing businesses she has to offer.

Over the weekend our lovely wedding attire suppliers got to show EWE exactly what they could do. We had the gorgeous and alternative bridal wear from Found Bespoke Bridal, Legends Bridal Design, Rosie Red Corsetry and Couture and The Couture Company and sassy bridesmaids attire from Curious Coco. The fabulous frocks from all these companies truly stole the show as each amazing model made their way through our venue. On the Saturday, these BAAAdass babes strutted their stuff in our awesome fashion walkabout. One of these lovely ladies was Emily from Mermaid Gossip who managed to model some amazing outfits as well as taking a vlog of the day!! Be sure to check out her video as well as some amazing pics of the walkabout below

              

On the Sunday, our Real Couples parade was lead by the funky sounds of Heavy Beat Brass Band. This amazing New Orleans inspired brass ensemble led the way as all the real brides and grooms showed us just what they got in some seriously unique outfits. These incredible couples got to don their actual wedding attire that was made for them by one of the bridal companies mentioned above.  Each of  these amazing designers make to order so if you see the dress you love why not get it made just for EWE.  They all also offer a bespoke service so if EWE love their style but want something EWEnique, why not get in touch to get an incredible outfit for you big day.

Of course we couldn’t just stop the fun there. On the Saturday evening we decided to throw a Mother Flocking PAAARRRRTYYY where Mo Flo’s and couples could relax and dance the night away.  Our venue for the night was the awesome art gallery that is Centrala, where couples and Mo’ Flo’s got to really let their fleeces down, drink a cocktail (or 2) as well as checking out some of the amazingly talented music and entertainment.

Getting the party started and everyone up on their feet were the DJ skills of both the awesome Discowed and Deckheds. For our “Bowie” based section of the night, we got to rock to some tunes from The Major Toms, check out some magic antics by the awesome Jester Styles while the fabEWElous light up letters from Doris Loves directed us to the “BAAAAR”. 

We (and everyone else in the venue) got all glittered up by the girls from Wish Upon a Sparkle and took our turn in the fantastic green screen photobooth by Jelly Photography. What a magnificent night we had and we were so lucky to spend it with EWE (and get some photo’s too)

Our sunny Sunday show was just as lovely (with surprisingly very few fragile faces).  The amazing couples and visitors continued to rock up to our flock and continue the fun all over again. With some photobooth antics, a real brides parade, a brass band hula hooping and even one of our attendees professing her love for our sheep (now named sheila, video is featured below.  Trust me, you will not regret watching it) this one was just as awesome as the day before!!

   

On top of all this we also had  Kat from the kickass blog and magazine Rock N’ Roll Bride come to our show! Kat was selling her awesome alternative wedding magazine, her stationary and wedding pin collaboration with Veronica Dearly and her headpiece and veil collaboration with Crown and Glory. As if that wasn’t enough, Kat also managed to take a vlog through out the weekend.  So if EWE wanna see some of the show in action why not check out the video below:

We want to say a MASSIVE “THANK EWE” to every couple who came to the show to meet all the wonderful suppliers that make up our Mo’ Flo’s. We still have a link to all our suppliers in the “Mother Flockers” section of our website so if you want to see more from this fantastic eclectic flock, why not check them out.

We hope you all had an amazing time at the show and we love that we got to help, inspire or be a part of your big day. Thank EWE.

We cater for the Mums and other guests as well who may want a more
bespoke and personal experience. Our hen parties, vintage make-overs and workshops are also popular events for the bridal party to get together and have some fun in the run up to the big day.

 

What makes you unique?

What do EWE love about the show?

We cater for couples who want something different and at the show we get to meet a lot of unique couples like this. The couples that come through the door are people who want their wedding to reflect their personality and getting to meet these people and possibly be a part of their day is just amazing.

What kind of service do you offer and why will it appeal to our
flockers?

We custom make bridesmaid dresses as well as other wedding attire.

We caught up with Geraldine to see why she cant wait to get to EWE!!

What has inspired you to come to the Extravaganza?


I tend to avoid wedding fairs usually, they just don’t excite me and then I heard of EWE, now I can’t wait to meet the couples and unique suppliers exhibiting……plus there’s a PARTY!

 

 

 

What Kind of Service do you offer and why will it appeal to our Flockers?


I create flower crowns, bouquets, wreath’s and wedding accessories from dried and preserved flowers for couples who want their flowers to last longer than the guests hangover’s. Preserved flowers have been treated so that they look fresh for years to come, they come in some amazing  colours and are fab if you’re getting hitched abroad.

 

 


What Inspires you and your business?


It’s probably been said before but it really is the  couples I work with, they’re just so diverse which pushes me to keep expecting more from myself and the ingredients I use. A working day can start by putting together a pastel pink wand for a flower girl and end with me adding the final black rose to a gothic bouquet. I never get bored! 

 

 


What would be your best piece of advice for future brides and grooms planning their weddings?


Trust your gut, only you two know what works for you and if it doesn’t don’t be afraid to drop it. It really is all about EWE.

What has inspired EWE to come to/create the Extravaganza?

We had done wedding fairs before the Extravaganza and they were always the same: generic, boring and lacking individuality. We knew the amount of amazing suppliers that were out there and the awesome couples that would want to see them. We wanted to give the opportunity for amazing and unique suppliers and couples alike to come together in one weird and wacky wedding fair, so along with Sassy, Vikki and now Yasmin, we created the the Extravaganza.

Honestly….Our brides makes us EWEnique. We work closely with our lovely clients to produce a gown that is bespoke to them. We are always blown away by how inventive and original our brides can be and aim to totally incorporate these aspects in their dress. They totally inspire us to push boundaries and be as creative as we possibly can.  So whether you want a dress covered in tattoos, a fairytale frock covered in creepy crawlies, a colourful kimono or even something in emerald green cheetah print, if we can do it, we will. If we can do that , and be confident it will look awesome then we will pull out all the stops(and spots) to make it happen for that client.

As EWEnique as You Are!Bespoke Ceremonies by Jessica May Ceremonies

 Coming back to our fabulous flock this year is Jessica May Ceremonies.

Jessica May is an Independent Celebrant who aims to give you a wedding ceremony that is unique to you. By choosing Jess to create, tailor and conduct the ceremony, you can have something a bit more personal and are free to celebrate wherever and whenever you like

 Read on to see why Jess is excited to meet EWE!!

 

What has inspired EWE to come to the Extravaganza?

I was inspired to come to The Extravaganza because it is the Only Wedding Show worth going to, and I don’t intend to ever go to any others!

 

What do EWE love about the show?

I love it for its quirky, unique style, its very cool and appeals to the customers I aim to continue to attract. I love meeting up with the other like-minded exhibitors.
I love the show because there is always a fantastic atmosphere and plenty of new ideas and gorgeous people to mingle with, all of them slightly keen to do something creative or different and unique for their wedding. It is such an innovative show full of enthusiasm and people very passionate about what they do.

 

 

What kind of service do you offer and why will it appeal to our flockers?

I offer a service as an Independent Celebrant. This means that I create and conduct unique, bespoke wedding ceremonies for people. My informal style attracts a wide range of customers looking (like most All About Ewe customers) to do something unique, individual and a little different.

 

What makes you unique?

I am unique in my field in that I offer a service which is neither secular nor religious. I am happy to include Spirituality where needed, and I’m not a humanist, but am equally happy to tailor a ceremony to an Atheist or a mixed-faith marriage.

 

What inspires EWE and your brand/business?

My inspiration comes from a commitment to enabling people to celebrate their lives and significant occasions within them. I love to encourage people to do what feels right for them, and to introduce them to new ideas and concepts where requested. Usually people know exactly what they don’t want and very quickly realise that they know what they do want too. My strength and passion is in listening. Most of my work is about listening and preparation. I tend to draw the greatest pleasure and joy from my work in discovering my client’s vision with them and participating in that creatively through listening.

Three words to describe my business?

Unique, Creative, Personal.

 

 

What would be your best piece of advice for future brides and grooms planning their weddings?

My best advice for Brides and Grooms planning their weddings is to do what they want and ignore everyone else, and to have confidence in their own ideas and not to worry about what other people will think.  

 

Are EWE going to be running any exclusive offers or discounts at the show for attendees at the show?

My exclusive offer is to offer a £50 discount to the first person to book me for their wedding.

 

Have EWE had any awesome couples book you from the show?

I booked an awesome couple from your show called Gilly and Simon and they had an amazing kitsch cliff-top wedding in Aberystwyth in Wales.

A Sinful Supper!! Seven deadly Sins- Alternative wedding inspiration

What do the EWE suppliers do on their days off? They bring their wedding awesomeness into creative projects like this, The Seven Deadly Sins shoot!!

 

Everyone thinks that the wedding industry is a world of beige or all hearts and various shades of white and pink but we are here to bring together creative and unique individuals who are trying (and succeeding) to break through this stereotype.

Most of them (who we like to call The Baaad asss Mother flockers) you will find as part of the alternative wedding collective known as the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza a.k.a EWE….their motto is “Don’t be a wedding sheep!! It’s all about EWE!!”

As a wedding photographer who specialises in unique, alternative weddings I wanted to pull together a shoot to show case the incredible skills of some very talented people that have helped form our band of Bad Ass Mo Flo’s over the last few years (and some new folks too).
The ‘EWE’ team!!

The shoot was based on the idea of the last supper for the seven deadly sins with a Gothic Horror twist. The video is a work of art from Richard Wakefield who wanted to bring a real American horror story feel to it and it is actually pretty terrifying…..you’ve been warned!!

<iframe src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/aCcZ7wbeDXI” width=”560″ height=”315″ frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen”></iframe>

The amazing venue was absolutely perfect for my “Old Masters” vision of the shoot. Woodchester Mansion has an interesting history and is rumoured to be haunted. It’s a beautiful venue which also holds weddings. I couldn’t have asked for anything better, and right on our doorstep in the Cotswolds!!

I involved my awesome EWE partner Jo and her team at the Couture Company based in Birmingham (U.K.) to create some gorgeous bespoke gowns specifically for each character. Focussing on Lust , Envy and Wrath they created the most wondrous and perfectly complimenting outfits for those diverse and strong characters. Their looks created in partnership with the dream hair and beauty team made up of my long time friend and incredibly talented hair artiste Zarla, and the wonderfully creative make-up artistry of Natalie Flewitt.

We were absolutely overjoyed when the incredible and somewhat famous U.K. gruesome cake designer Annabel from the Conjurer’s Kitchen agreed to sculpt some gory and gluttonous cakes to suit the theme. There was a mouldy looking Croquembouche and an incredible gluttony inspired cake with teeth and marzipan maggots!!

Set creation and floral design was magic’d up by the epic Amy and Amanda from Ava Event Styling. The intricate birds nest style centre pieces and fantastic floral creations and styling were out of this world and the set dressing brought every creative involved into the story perfectly.

On top of this I was lucky enough to have talented crockery designer Charlotte Clarke, whose ceramic masterpieces were individually created with each and every character and sin involved. We also had the superb stationer Satin and Tat come up with the some epic tarot card style cards for the table.

I’m a huge believer in diversity and this usually comes out in my model selection. I am incredibly lucky to have some amazing diverse and creative friends who all did an amazing job. I am particularly proud to have had Syluss, who’s a friend of mine who I’m utterly inspired by as he’s a very proud transexual gentleman who’s designing his own clothing range to help educate the world and help the trans community be proud of their journey.

Our Pride was played by the amazing Virgin Xtravaganza who is one the most insanely talented London drag stars and was perfect to play the role at the very centre of the shoot.

Envy was played wonderfully by Jen aka Roughened Rosebud.

whilst we called on my good friend and personal tattooist Nic to be our Lust. She was our luscious Lolita in Red we saw her unrequited advances to our faded rock star Sloth played by my friend from school Frazer.

Wrath was played by my old pal Taz,and she is just the best for getting into the zone on a shoot, and believe me with her screaming and clawing at me from 6” away from my camera lens I was totally freaked out.

Last but not least was the amazing Vikki who stripped off to be our Gluttony, she really threw herself in to the role despite the chill in the air!!

This shoot was so much fun to pull together. I will be forever grateful for the huge team of creative people we had involved in the shoot. Whilst I know it might not inspire couples to go full Gothic horror for their big day I hope it shows that you can be brave and do things your way.

Head over Heels for Bespoke Shoes by Bunny Pumpkin Boutique

First time to the show this year is brand new Mo’ Flo’ Bunny Pumpkin Boutique.

At Bunny Pumpkin Boutique, Jen specialises in designing and creating bespoke hand crafted shoes. Knowing that every bride is different and EWEnique, Jen can create your perfect shoes in your style to make you feel as good as you look.

We caught up with Jen to find out more for EWE!!

 

 

What has inspired EWE to come to the Extravaganza?

I moved to the Midlands 18 months ago from Wiltshire, and met an amazing group of women, 8 of which were getting married within the following 12 months. And all of these awesome women had one thing in common; they were all definitely not your “average” bride to be. White meringue dresses and traditional styles were very much not included in their big days.  These ass-kicking women were in the market for something different, something unique and their tastes were assuredly eclectic!

As I got to know them more I discovered some more similarities, more than a couple were devotees to Jo at Couture Company and I was honoured to be asked by lots of these brides to be to create their wedding shoes and accessories to complement Jo’s incredible dress designs. As my time in Birmingham went on I also met Sassy at Assassynation Photography when she photographed another friend and customer of mine in May 2016, and she introduced me to EWE.

 

What do EWE love about the show?

I have been so inspired by Both Jo and Sassy as well as all of the brides I have met in Birmingham and the message that they send to all the other brides to be. You don’t have to fit into a traditional mould, you can have the day you want, however alternative your tastes and there will be someone at EWE who will help you to fulfil those desires, and I can’t wait to be a part of it!

 

 

What makes you unique?

Bunny Pumpkin Boutique is a brand who works with you to create your perfect pair of shoes and matching accessories. All of our shoes are hand stitched and made to your specifications, whether that is a killer heel, a wide fit, flats or sizes which are more difficult to find in high street brands. We also create matching heels and flats for when you want to hit the dancefloor.  We work in collaboration with our customers to make their dreams become a shoe reality, whether that is to match a dress or incorporate a passion.  As well as shoes we also make a growing range of veils, birdcage veils, hair pieces, garters and bags to match your eclectic wedding ensemble.

 

 

What inspires EWE and your brand/business?

We are heavily inspired by the amazing people we meet, some of the customers we have worked with over the years have inspired whole ranges as well as one customer who inspired our bestselling design. Current trends also factor into our design processes, whether that is fashion trends on the catwalk or what is loved by the people we really care about, our friends, colleagues and customers.

 

If we were to describe our brand in three words they would be;

Unique often outrageous!

 

What would be your best piece of advice for future brides and grooms planning their weddings?

If I was to offer a piece of advice to brides and grooms to be, it would be to pick your maid of honour, best man and bridesmaids well, you’re going to need them! And to choose what makes you and your partner happy, stuff whatever anyone else thinks! It is your day and have whatever you want, eat whatever you want and dance to whatever you want!

 

Are EWE going to be running any exclusive offers or discounts at the show for attendees at the show?

Over the weekend we will be offering a 10% discount to anyone who orders within 4 weeks of the event after meeting us, we will have special discount cards to give out which you can redeem on ordering. We will also be offering a special group discount when you order the brides and bridesmaids shoes and/or accessories.
