Wonderful Wedding Wednesday • Pretty Nostalgic Gathering - The Wedding Room

There are some rooms that you walk into and just gasp. Out loud. Unashamedly.

When I crept into the Wedding Room of the Pretty Nostalgic Gathering at Kings Weston House, I literally had to take a sharp intake of breath.

Everyone was in a theatre set up style room listening to Annabel from the award winning Love my Dress blog and I was tending to two small boys. 

Once they and my husband were set up with home made millionaire's shortbread, I scooted off to one of the side rooms which was bursting with some of the South West's most beautiful wedding vendors.

You could hear a pin drop in the room on account of the lack of people and whilst I was terribly disappointed to miss Annabel's talk, it gave me 15 minutes alone with my camera. And the most wonderful things to photograph.

Cakes from Chocolate Delores that defy belief, styling that makes your eyes flick wildly from side to side because there is so much to take in, corsets from Lisa Keating and couture vintage dresses you just had to run your fingers down and props from Bristol Vintage. Lots of props. I was in heaven.

Then suddenly the room came alive with hustle and bustle as everyone piled out of the lecture room and I was thrilled to finally meet Frankie from Love Audrey, (tea date to be fixed up soon!) chat to Annabel and buy her beautiful book.

I am not getting married but I find her book full of inspiration for this blog.

I was quite frankly stunned by the quality of each table and the work of Kirsten, The Little Wedding Helper, was all around me.

The gathering itself was teeming with creative individuals, crafters and bloggers. But I took far too many photos to get them all into one post.

So enjoy this Part 1 and help support The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation.

This gathering celebrated local talent. Every Wednesday I support the work of an incredibly talented individual, so much so, her effort has been recognised by the national Daily Mail Inspirational Women of the Year Awards. 5 finalists have been chosen and will meet Samantha Cameron next Monday. The winner will be announced on the 11th November. Naomi - I couldn't think of anyone more deserving.

You can read Naomi's story here and I defy anyone not to be inspired to donate £1 after reading it.
