Assassynation

When I married my hubby in 2008 I wasn’t a photographer and had no idea about photography. I made a bad decision about my photography as I just didn’t understand how difficult a job it actually is.  I think this experience has definitely moulded the photographer I have become. I’m happy to say that in December 2013 we renewed our wedding vows in our most favourite place on the planet…..this time we made sure we nailed the photos and video!!

I am an energetic, enthusiastic bundle of wedding excitement, I genuinely LOVE shooting weddings, so much so that I travel all over the world and have shot nearly 200 weddings in a few short years. I have been named as one of Rangefinders Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2013….a prestigious award that has previously given to some of the world’s most inspiring, up and coming wedding photographers.   In me you don’t just get a photographer pressing a button all day…..oh no!!!

You get…..

A wedding planning friend who loves hearing all about the details in the run up to the big day!!   A wealth of wedding supplier knowledge, plenty of great advice on the tricky situations that can crop up while you’re trying to work out the details. Someone who is as excited about your big day as you are, An artist (yes it sounds pretentious but it’s true),  A diplomat (for those times when Auntie Joan is demanding a million group shots you don’t want). I love getting to share in my customer’s big days, it’s always such a huge honour.

These things, combined with much more, are what make Jester Styles such a unique and intriguing choice for any event and will undoubtedly appeal to most, if not all, of the flockers in attendance as he is so diverse in what he has to offer.

Mr and Mrs Unique just love creativity and the people that do things a bit differently and that is why Erica is the perfect fit for EWE.

 

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 ““ When Rock n Roll Bride was asked to be the media partner and sponsor for EWE we, of course, jumped at the chance. Not only do we LOVE the show (it’s definitely one of the best in the UK for alternative brides and grooms) but the couples that come to the shows are OUR READERS, and we love any excuse to meet them! We’re so excited for the Spring show!” 

 So not only can you grab your copies of the magazine but you get an up close and exclusive view of their collaboration of veils and head pieces with Crown and Glory , as this is the only show they will be exhibiting at this year be sure to come along and see their brand new collaborations and collections in person. 

 

  

 

So where can we 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 flock, this hidden gem is also an amazing wedding venue so if you are looking for an oasis amidst the concrete jungle then this is the place for EWE! 

 

 

What is going to be happening at this show? 

 

Well we have some exciting stuff for you. 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, D-I-Y demos and crafty workshops. 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 you just what our fabulous flockers can do. 

 

 

 

You can make memories in our fabulous photo booths, get top score at our gaming stations, 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 and of course make sure that you say hello to all our Bad Ass Mo Flo’s.

Frankie Lynn

Hello, my name is Frankie and I make custom shoes for amazing brides.

My journey with shoes began when I was a child. putting on fancy shoes made me feel like I was a fairy tale character and I’ve always believed in magic.

I think there’s a special kind of magic in a wonderful pair of shoes. These days I make one of a kind shoes for inspiring and amazing people like you.

There’s also a little fairy tale to go with each pair I make, all wrapped up in a scroll concealed in the shoe box waiting to share the magic of the shoes with you.
