Loss & Love - Missing a Loved One on Your Wedding Day

There’s no denying getting married is one of the most important and significant days of your life, one of celebration, of family and sharing a special moment in time with all of those you hold dear. So, what if a special person is no longer here? The hole that they have left behind can feel more overwhelming than ever. How do you face your wedding day without them?

Life is, in no uncertain terms, a bitch. And this means that people die and sometimes they die way before we are ready and it’s on a day like your wedding day that you may feel this the most. Juxtaposing grief and joy is not easy. Looking to the future, loved up with your partner, while your heart is heavy with the absence of someone from your past and present, is a scary prospect and sometimes a reason that people experience extreme anxiety about their wedding, in parts dread or even put off the day itself.

How to build your wedding dream team by Richard Murgatroyd Photography

When you look back at your wedding in years to come, you might recall the weather, the food and the styling, but I’m sure that what you remember most is the love and warmth from your new husband or wife, from your family, and from your friends. Choosing the perfect group of people to surround yourself with is often why narrowing down a guest list can be such a difficult task. There’s also a second group of people that can have an equally important influence over your wedding day: your suppliers. In the age of search engines, wedding blogs, websites, social media and email it has never been easier to find, communicate with, and book suppliers without ever meeting them in person. But the personalities of the people you book are just as important as their technical prowess. Photographers, videographers, venue staff, and even dressmakers and florists all have the ability to make a huge difference to your wedding experience. That’s why visiting Most Curious 2019 this March is a great way of meeting some of the finest, and nicest(!) suppliers in the wedding industry, and help you select your wedding dream team…

Contemporary, minimalist bridal for London brides from our 2014 show to now - Introducing Andrea Hawkes Bridal

This year, our dress sponsor is Andrea Hawkes Bridal, an iconic bridal designer who’s famous for her contemporary shapes, flowing lines and impeccable eye for design.

Half a decade has passed, but her incredible skill has stayed the same, with her designs getting more and more swoonworthy as the years have gone on. We chat to her about the past 5 years, and her brand new “Identity” launch…

Introducing Richard Murgatroyd Photography

A magician at capturing the spontaneous moments of fun and raw emotion and a fan of exploring new places, we chatted to him about his work, his influences and his advice for couples and their wedding photography.

Bridal beauty from the loveliest ladies in the biz - Introducing Portraits Bridal

The creative genii behind the gold eyelid lines and peachy hues on our campaign shoot this year (and loads of other years too - we’re very lucky!), Portraits Bridal, are back for our 2019 show. With experience in the world of fashion and a portfolio burst of beaming brides, a keen eye for design and a steady hand for perfect make-up application and hair styling - they’re also the loveliest ladies to have around on the day. That may sound like an odd thing to prioritise, but if they’re responsible for getting you ready for what could be the biggest day of your life - and which will definitely be the day where you get the most photos done - you need someone calming and understanding there to help you. You’ll feel like you’ve walked away with two best friends in the Portraits girls - and you’ll be walking away absolutely GLOWING too! Metaphorically, that is - because if you want matte and natural, they can also do the best au natural beauty you’ve ever seen.

Having a wedding by a rooftop pool in London may seem like an actual distant fantasy - or having your celebrations in a Studio 54 themed nightclub.

Beautiful wedding photography made with more than just a camera - Introducing Lisa Jane Photography

We love Lisa Jane Photography for a whole host of reasons - not least because she brought us donuts during setup last year. But that is, all jokes aside, the kind of incredible soul she is. As well as being an insanely talented photographer, she’s super perceptive and sensitive, and totally, irrevocably emotionally connected to her couples, meaning she’s constantly hunting out those moments you can’t explain, but just feel perfect; as well as chasing stunning light to capture portraiture at its finest. We’re chatting to her loveliness on the blog today because we’re thrilled she’s back for A Most Curious Wedding Fair 2019 - we can’t wait for you to meet her and fall head-over-heels in love like we have!

Dreamy, ethereal and romantic wedding florals - Introducing Saint Floral

Saint Floral, let us count the ways we love thee. Hannah’s ethereal, romantic floral style is delicate and punchy at the same time, timeless and effortlessly modern. Her work - which oftentimes looks like a painting but we can assure you is real (to the touch and smell) - are inspired by designers and artists who push boundaries and bring us a little closer to our dream world, like Rodarte and the Dutch Masters. Hannah’s floral designs are totally out of this world too, but she’s the most lovely woman and super down to earth! We chatted to her below…

The photographers bringing LA heat to London cool: Introducing September Pictures

September Pictures are a mostly London-based, sometimes LA-based photography duo who oooooooze divine Californian chill into all of their work, wherever they are. Their background as music photographers has prepared them for wedding photography because - in their own words - everyone’s trying to have the day of their lives, a million wonderful things are happening at once, nothing runs perfectly on time and it usually ends with wild dancing. This means their shots are simultaneously full of energy and vibrancy whilst also being the perfect snapshot of time standing still. We are palpably thrilled at the prospect of having them on at our 2019 show and over the moon at the idea of you meeting them, irrevocably falling in love with them, and seeing the magic you end up creating. But before that - here’s a teaser…
