Fazeley Studios Wedding Fair

We celebrated a little milestone in the life of Bloom Fleuriste at the weekend – our very first wedding fair. We selected Fazeley Studios in Birmingham as the first place to showcase our floral designs and styling as it was the venue’s first fair too, which felt quite fitting.

We had no idea what to expect and were completely blown away by the positive reaction from brides, grooms and fellow exhibitors. Thank you to all who came and have since followed up with enquiries – we look forward to making your big day beautiful!

A special thank you goes out to my incredibly talented friend Jennie, who baked some delicious natural treats for our stand. Her new wholefoods baking business, The Wild Carrot, is just getting off the ground and her organic goodies went down a storm (I can pass on details if you’re interested in an organic wedding cake or dessert table, and she specialises in gluten-free baking too).

Another thank you goes to my dad Pete who created an incredible hand-painted sign for my stand. He’s a painter and artist, so I asked him to knock up a little something for me and he went way beyond what I expected, recreating the floral background of my business card and logo. Thanks Dad!

We approached our stand for the day as we would a wedding or other event, by devising a story to jump start ideas and inspiration. We decided on Gypsy Rose and I wanted to evoke the feel of a seasonal bohemian feast, with moody dark hues mixed with the palest blush with unusual and sensual textures. The style was a relaxed, slightly rustic feel, but with a hint of glamour and real sense of occasion.

Food is central to all celebrations, so Jennie baked some organic sweet treats following the natural, bohemian feel with unique and seasonal flavour combinations including beetroot, dark chocolate, berries, nuts, fig and elderflower. I hope you like our creations and feel inspired to start your own styling story.

We’re delighted to be taking part in our first wedding fair in September at fabulous Fazeley Studios in Digbeth, Birmingham. It’s a great city centre wedding venue for couples looking for something a little different and this is Fazeley Studios’ first wedding fair, launched by demand and popularity of its regular open evenings.

We will be exhibiting among a range of other unique wedding suppliers, showcasing our floral design and styling work and giving away some treats, including handmade corsages and yummy baked goodies created by our friend Jenny at Wild Carrot.

We’re also running a very exciting competition to win a bespoke bridal bouquet worth £150. All you need to do to enter, is visit our stand and leave your name, email address and wedding date/venue and we will pick a winner at random the next day to have a luxury hand-tied wedding bouquet on your wedding day. Pretty cool, right?
