First wedding fair at the Guildhall a success!

First wedding fair at the Guildhall a success!

‘Sophie’, a wonderful  ‘1959 Armstrong Siddeley Star Sapphire’ , took centre stage on the Guildhall’s forecourt on Sunday 30 March, the day of Cruz Photography’s ‘St Ives Wedding Fair’.  One of two immaculate and incredibly elegant wedding cars,  belonging to Amelia’s Classic Cars, ‘Sophie’ seemed completely at home outside the Guildhall and certainly captured the wonderful vintage feel of our building.

Cruz Photograpy’s ‘St Ives Wedding Fair’ proved to be a great success for exhibitors and prospective brides/bridegrooms to be.  The Fair was an impeccably managed event with a great variety of stalls and entertainment.  Exhibitors had a fantastic opportunity to network with other local businesses and those looking to tie the knot were able to liaise with suppliers and sample their products.

Children were kept entertained with live music, face painting/body art and free samples, whilst a wonderful bridal fashion show from BRIDE! grabbed everyone’s attention.  FANTASTIC!  The Guildhall’s stage provided a wonderful platform for a superb selection of bridal gowns to be exhibited.

From sweet treats to snazzy balloons, cakes, stationery, bridal hair styling, guided tours of the Guildhall’s ceremony rooms, innovative photography and detailed information about a wide spectrum of wedding venues in the local area…..there was something for everyone!

A great day…… outstanding success!

We look forward to the next one.  Watch this space!
