The Most Curious Wedding Fair is an event I have eagerly wanted to attend for a couple of years now, so I was over the moon when founder and creative director Becky Hoh -Hale invited me to attend last weeks fair and take some shots of the truly unique, Indie-style focused wedding fair. With over 200 exciting vendors under one roof at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane in London I was able to get an insight into the coolest wedding trends of 2018.
Keep scrolling to see some of the stunning dresses on the catwalk and also my round ups of the top trends in cakes, accessories and more….
The first catwalk show of the day channelled was PEACE, LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING 2018 – hippy vibes with pattern, texture, embellishment and flower power.
Kat from Rock N Roll bride attended the show to present awards to the BridalNext award winners. These winners were picked from a selection of industry creatives who have only been in business since 2015.
And the winners were…..
Kate from Pinyatay custom made piñata creator.
Holly from Holly Clarke cake design
Karin from Ritual Unions couture bridal dress designer.
Virna from Virna Pasquinelli Handemade hats and head pieces.
Rachel from Rachel Takes Pictures
The second catwalk show of the day was ARCHITECTURAL FORMS – structured shapes, simple lines, volume graphic motifs.

CAKES (of course) – The wedding cake is an area of the Wedding Industry that I think has just exploded in the last year or two. Something that was once sooo traditional first cracked out of its shell with the introduction of the ‘naked cake’
However, now, the wedding cake is a no holds barred canvas for brides and grooms to express their style, passions and personalities. The cakes at this years show ranged from geometric, floral, metallic and artistic. There are no boundaries!
FASHION – I just love the leather jacket trend that has arrived this year, my Bride Kate oozed urban wedding cool in one late last year. Maids to measure take it one step further and include personalised, artistic embellishments to really make it stand out.
HEADWEAR – Whilst walking around the show I noticed a real interest in the Wedding Veil. Again times have changed from the simple white viel which has not reinvented itself with sequins, embroidery and embellishments.
And if you’re still with me, here are a few more of my favourite images from the bustling activity at The Most Curious Wedding Fair
