Hampton Manor – Hampton-In-Arden, Soihull

Yesterday we attended the Wedding Fayre at Hampton Manor. In my opinion this is one of the best venue’s in the Midlands, it really is perfect. Why? Everything it about it, I can’t find a fault with it! The Fayre as we expected was very busy, it had been marketed exceptionally well and at some stages there was a queue of couples at the door. There was a good range of exhibitors, I particularly liked the bands who were showcasing some serious talent; http://www.functionfever.co.uk/ and http://www.theacoustic.co.uk/. Although 2 very different musical options I can see both working really well. Anyway it’s Monday morning so I’m off car cleaning! Have a good week.

Vintage Chic Wedding Fair – Birmingham

Today we attended the Vintage Chic Wedding Fair, which was held at the Centennial Centre in Edgbaston, Birmingham. This is a Fair we have been looking forward to since we booked it, of course we went there to try secure business but also knew it would be a good opportunity to network with fellow vintage exhibitors. The flow of people throughout the day was fairly steady although it was a little slow at the start, due to the half marathon. A lot of people travelling from or via the South side of the City had to endure some really difficult journeys, so a special thanks to those people who made the effort. It was interesting to find out that some couples had travelled from as far afield as Hampshire and Wales to attend the fair, that’s some dedication to the vintage theme!

Wedding Fayre Highbury Hall – Moseley, Birmingham

Another superb Sunday in the sun! We had a really good day at Highbury Hall in Moseley, Birmingham. A lovely venue and was really suited to our fleet of cars, a lot of people commented as to how well the two worked together. Highbury Hall is about 3 miles outside of the city centre and council run. A lot of people chose the venue as it not only looks great but is exceptional value for money, no wonder the council can’t afford wheelie bins!!! Sam and her team work hard all year round towards the annual Wedding Fayre, and it show today; there were in excess of 300 people in attendance! The 3 cat walk shows on the hour worked really well(although I didn’t get to see any of them!) as it meant the flow of people was consistent through out the day. Looking forward to the next fayre at Highbury Hall already!

The Roman Way Hotel Cannock

Today’s Fayre was better than expected, I think due to the weather, it was beautiful. From the start at 11am through to mid afternoon there was a good steady flow of couples. The vast majority were getting married at The Roman Way Hotel, a wise choice. The hotel certainly looked after exhibitors well today; Sophie who hosted the event was excellent as were her colleagues who helped out, although I didn’t meet him(or her!) compliments to the chef, a cracking lunch. Anyway, back to business; we had lots of enquiries including quite a few for 2014, best get on with getting some quotes out.

Forest Of Arden Wedding Fayre

I attend The Wedding Fayre at The Forst of Arden yesterday which ran from 11am to 3pm. I had to be there though for 830am, on a Sunday morning, outrageous! It was a great day though and by far the busiest fayre I have attended to date. Surprisingly though it was a slow start, I didn’t see anyone until about 1145am. But when people did start to arrive enquiries came from far and wide, the best one was for Warwick Castle, would love to get that piece of business! My positioning yesterday was great, I was right by the 18th green, so during the quiet moments I could watch the “wannabe” Sir Ian Poulter’s! To be fair though there was some great shots, the one that’ll stick in my mind though was one gentleman who was about 30 yards from the pin, he….. caught it wrong shall we say…. and the ball went about the twice the distance it should have done and missed the car a couple of foot!
