When they aren’t accommodating our flock these hidden gems are also amazing wedding venues so if you are looking for an oasis amidst the concrete jungle then Digbeth is the place for EWE! 

What The Flock Can We Do There??

On top of all the wedding awesomeness we are giving you the chance to win a flock load of prizes from a vast range of our awesome suppliers in our ever popular sheep hunt as well as taking part in other spectacular competitions.

THE DIGNUMS

The Dignums are a husband/husband team of two fun and friendly wedding photographers, based in Wolverhampton. They love working with like-minded couples whose focus is on enjoying their relaxed and fun wedding day, rather than worrying what colour their seat covers are (Men after my own heart!). Their work is colourful, expressive, moment driven, and a little bit different. If you want two guys
documenting your wedding day who feel like a couple of mates, then there’s a super strong chance they are the right photographers for EWE.

We are coming for EWE!!!! The UK’s BEST Alternative wedding show Is Back In November 2018!

The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza is back for a wondrous weekend of magnificent matrimonial madness!
Can we get a HELL YEAH??!!!!
Come see the UK’s best loved alternative, unique and quirky wedding fair on the 10th and 11th of November!!
Following on from the fun and frolics of the March Extravaganza we are pleased to announce our next adventure in the alternative wedding world. Our November show will fill the industrial epic-ness of the Bond in Birmingham with wedding wondrousness not to mention our Christmas Baaarrrrket to grab some EWEnique gifts.
If EWE are looking to break out from wedding beige-ery then look no further. EWE might think that wedding fairs aren’t for EWE but if EWE’ve not visited us before EWE won’t believe how much fun they can be. There is truly something for everyone and with little lambs getting in free (please don’t turn up with any actual lambs…..we can’t let those in sadly) why not come along and see what all the buzz is about.
As well as our magnificent Mo Flo’s, we also have 2 of the biggest names in the alternative wedding industry joining us! Erica from Mr and Mrs Unique and Kat from Rock ’n’ Roll Bride are returning to our flock to be our shows media sponsors and we couldn’t be more thrilled.
Mr and Mrs Unique is an award winning online directory hosting an array of incredible suppliers as well as a fabulous blog and magazine celebrating the quirky, the interesting and above all, the unique aspects of weddings.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Bride is one of the biggest wedding blogs in the world and THE go to blog for alternative wedding inspiration. Alongside the blog, Rock ‘n‘ Roll Bride magazine comprises of some of the most unique real weddings through to popular DIY tutorials and wedding planning tips and ideas. Kat says of the show and we quote …

I’m not supposed to have favourites, but if there was one wedding fair that I loved more than any others, it would be The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza….. Rock n Roll Bride + The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza = a match made in heaven.”

So where can EWE find this BAAAAdass flock?
Our fantastic flock have been welcomed in by the stunning venue that is The Bond. Located in the heart of Digbeth in Birmingham, this renovated building complex combines Victorian architecture, cobbled courtyards with a beautiful canal side view. When The Bond isn’t accommodating our fold, this hidden gem is also an amazing wedding venue so if EWE are looking for an oasis amidst the concrete jungle then this is the place for EWE!
On top of all the wedding awesomeness we are giving EWE the chance to win a flock load of prizes from a vast range of our awesome suppliers in the ever popular sheep hunt as well as taking part in other spectacular competitions. 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 of our fashion walkabout that showcases the current works of the phenomenal dress designers, tailors, accessory and shoe creators. Cheer on our real couples parade that lets the awesome brides and grooms from previous shows, strut their stuff in their wedding attire to show EWE just what our fabulous flockers can do.
