Gainsborough Old Hall Wedding Fayre

28 Mar

Brand new designs in a very old building

I enjoyed my time yesterday at Gainsborough Old Halls first Wedding Fayre event.  I had never been before, but it is quite an unusual building, as you will see in some of these photos from the day:

I’m sure I looked funny in the morning arriving with boxes of plants and sweetie jars to a Wedding Fayre, but it was all for a reason = new designs for quirky favour labels, name places, and table numbers.  I also designed some new table number plant signs, with the background patterns from my final degree project inspired by afternoon tea – can you see the tea cups in the pattern?

My old favourite ‘button table numbers’ were displayed with some new menu designs, and co-ordinating plates hand painted by me.

The day seemed to go so quickly, but I did have a quick wander and found these quirky internal features next to the tea shop (any excuse).

The venue people were friendly as were the other people displaying, including the photographers either side of my display.   There was Paul from local studio Red Pepper Studios based in Gainsborough, and Reg Moore whose work is featured in magazines including Lincolnshire Pride.

For more designs take a look at my Wedding Stationery page; keep up to date with other Events I will be attending by joining my official Facebook page or check my Events page.

If you have a stationery design or idea in mind, please get in touch and I will be happy to discuss the possibilities.
