The Alternative Wedding Fayre

Sometimes I feel that BelleNoirBride is a little London focused and I do apologise if you feel this way, I am conscious of this and trying to work on making it more about the whole of the UK and not just London Town.

And so in the spirit of this when I heard about the Alternative Wedding Fayre (via one of my favourite wedding photographers Bandele Zuberi) which is taking place in Birmingham, I jumped at the chance of featuring it.

The Alternative Wedding Fayre offers Birmingham’s ethnically diverse communities the
traditional elements required to create a cultural wedding. Something which the founder
Daniella Genas feels is distinctly missing in the Midlands.

It is the first time that this kind of wedding fair has taken place in Birmingham and will feature everything that a couple who would like to reflect their African, Caribbean or Asian culture will need in order to tie the knot.

Featuring over 30 of the Midlands’ best wedding suppliers, it sounds like it will have all the makings of a good wedding fair, 1) food to sample 2) a fashion show and 3) freebies & discounts!

The event takes place THIS SUNDAY, 8TH JULY at the Paragon Hotel from 12-4.30pm.
