The Designer Vintage Bridal Show, hosted at Hagley Hall last month, has been heralded a huge success by exhibitors, visitors and the show organisers (Rachel Simpson and Clare Guest). Attended by some of the hottest designers and suppliers of vintage-inspired products and services from across the country, the event was visited by hundreds of brides-to-be and their families, who spent the weekend in one of the Midlands most beautiful settings.
Stunning bridal brands like Temperley London and twobirds bridesmaids dresses joined incredibly gifted designers; all influenced by the vintage era and each room within Hagley Hall was transformed into a marvellous spectacle, themed perfectly to create a truly inspirational journey throughout the venue.
A luxury marquee adorned the grounds outside and was filled to the brim with the cream of the vintage-inspired crop, there to showcase their incredible skills and talents. A beautiful and romantic wedding yurt which housed a selection of new, up and coming designers and suppliers in a bit of a wed-fest vibe also took pride of place on the front lawn.
Visitors enjoyed daily catwalk shows, each dedicated to different eras, style workshops, cake decorating masterclasses, vintage hair and beauty makeovers, photo booths galore and the opportunity to meet the experts, chat with bridal bloggers and treat themselves to afternoon tea in Miss Lily’s Tearoom.

Lucy Hayes Bridal Veils…”I don’t underestimate the enormity of staging such an event, and without doubt it was impressive………….Thank you for giving us such a great venue and for all the attention to detail that made it so special.”
Alice Tree…”It was a great show and exceeded my expectations – so thank you very much for allowing me to be part of it. I’m looking forward to next year already! I was blown away with the response to my stand.”
Midlands Morris Minor Hire…”The Designer Vintage Bridal Show was brilliant and loved every minute of it! We have attended a few other wedding fayres, but none of them as organised or as big as yours. We have already had a couple of bookings thanks to the fayre, and are awaiting more to come through! The huge amount of people coming through the doors over the weekend was fantastic and really helped us showcase our two vehicles that we had for hire. Thank you once again for organising such a great show, and look forward to possibly attending the next one!”
