Brides of Culture bridal exhibition – March 2014
Went to a smashing friendly event today in the sunshine at Hackney Town Hall. Lovely welcome, Quality Street on trays, golden Champagne, and very nice people. I’d not made either of the Brides of Culture previous events in posh hotels in London so was determined to get to the Hackney one. Up the stairs to the sound of a violin being played beautifully and into a hall stacked with stalls and relaxed promoters of all things wedding. Photographers milled around the crowds, holding equipment high, retaking photo after photo because they’re professionals while cake-makers pulled us in with fantastic designs and mama kitchens piled high our plates with jollof rice as they explained the services they offer to bridal parties. There was never an hard sell, just jolly folk showing their wares and dishing out business cards and samples.
