The Best Wedding Fairs South West & South Wales UK 2020

Updated: Feb 28

I get asked to attend a lot of wedding fairs - it isn’t possible to attend them all, but I do love styling the brides for the runway and being really creative to show different styles and to spark brides imaginations. Wedding fairs are a good way for brides and grooms to meet people in a relaxed environment and have a chat.

Chemistry is vital with your wedding providers whether it is for your wedding florists, wedding photographers, the perfect venues, your dream wedding dress, a fun DJ or a live band. It is important that they ‘get you.’

And this is the same for bridal hair and makeup artists too. That is why I have a trial with all my brides and spend time getting to know them and how they want to look and feel on their big day. We stay in regular contact so that if things change we can adapt accordingly. What is most important to me is that each of my brides gets to look and feel the best version of what they had imagined.


Here are some dates for your diary of wedding fairs coming up in Bristol, Gloucester, Wiltshire, Devon and Wales. I thought it might be helpful to pop them all into one place for you. Some of these are open evenings where you get to look around the wedding venue and speak to their wedding organiser and suppliers, others are wedding fairs where there are exhibitors for all your wedding needs.


I won’t be at all of these - so please do take a look at my inspiration gallery and if you would like to work together to create your dream bridal look then please get in touch. I still have a few weekends free and some times available for trials during the week and evenings.


I'll be styling the brides for the runway and have a table at the South Gloucestershire Wedding Fair on 4 October 2020 - please say 'hi' if you are attending.


Please note: All dates are subject to changes, please contact the organisers and check on their weblink for more information before making arrangements.

This is just a list of the wedding events I have come across. I don't expect it is all of them by any means. For a really good search facility try hitched.co.uk or weddingfairs.com which has lots of information and links to providers. Also try your local newspaper websites such as Wales Online for Welsh wedding fairs and also organisations that run wedding fairs. A simple Google Search for your specific area will also bring up many choices!

"My bridesmaids and I had the privilege of having Kim styling our hair on the day of my wedding. She gave us excellent advice on what styles would work but also accommodated all of our preferences. We were all so delighted with how amazing she made our hair look. Kim was so lovely to have with us on my wedding morning, she was calm and so professional. I would totally recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding hairstylist!" Caroline
