The RNLI Wedding Open Day 2016


Another fabulous event!

As always we had a fantastic day at the RNLI Wedding Open Day on Sunday 10th January 2016, held at the RNLI College in Poole. The beautiful waterside venue opens its doors each year for couples looking for a venue and for suppliers for their special day. We are privileged to be able to organise and host the show every year as it always has such a lovely vibe to the day with lots of smiley faces. Thank you to everyone who attended the event; we hope you had an enjoyable day and were inspired by the very knowledgeable exhibitors.

Thank you to IanH Photography for the fantastic photos.

Gorgeous styling in the photos above by Fundoo Weddings, wedding transport provided by RR Elite and beautiful floral arrangement by Twilight Hire, who showcased what stunning artificial floral/tree items they have for couples to hire. We especially love their flower wall which has been a huge trend over the past year. We also awarded the ladies from Twilight Hire ‘best stand’ for their lovely arrangement.

Lisa Notley made a stunning arrangement of cakes for the Open Day, which were admired by everyone, and of course they tasted amazing too! Pippa from Simply Love Vintage brought along a gorgeous array of vintage crockery hire and set her stand out beautifully for couples to see. We also loved Edwards Flowers stand with their beautiful rustic look, with bright and beautiful flowers and Create Gift Love range of decorative items/favours which are perfect for any occasion.

Chocolate Fountains of Dorset  brought along their popular chocolate fountains for the couples to try and enjoy. We loved having The Photo Booth Bournemouth at the Wedding Open Day as their pictures are always such fun and we love their props! Beautiful wedding rings sold by Goldcrest Jewellers and Forever Wedding Rings were also showcased at the Open Day and Jellico Creative displayed their creative range of graphics for weddings.

We saw a stunning range of wedding dresses at the RNLI Wedding Open Day from All Aspects and Courtyard Bridal and the entertainment options were well covered by Absolute Fun Casino and 3D Entertainments. Flaming Peaches brought along their fantastic food van and served up some tasters which was a big hit, and VW Splitty Weddings showcased one of their lovely split screen camper vans. Couples also had a choice of makeup and hair artists to speak to including the very talented Beautiful Brides and Nina Middleton.
