Back in early 2012 a wedding show like no other was born. It tumbled, devoid of elegance, from the crazy hearts and minds of three creative wedding industry suppliers, Sassy (Assassynation), Jo (The Couture Co) and Vikki (Liliia Designs). Their desire was simple; to encourage couples to shake off the shackles of wedding conformity and showcase the very best of alternative wedding industry suppliers, offering a diverse and eclectic feast of all things wedding in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment.
The motto was ‘Don’t be a wedding sheep, it’s all about EWE!’
Since 2012 The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza has showcased a wonderfully diverse range of services and products, from historical inspired dresses to sculptural flower bouquets, from gothic themed wedding cakes to giant paper flower decorations. Previous shows have included live music, stilt walkers, a procession of models in gorgeous dresses and accessories on the fashion walkabout and amazing prizes in the treasure hunt.
In 2015 the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza will be back with a bang, with not one, but two vibrant, unique and eclectic shows! Chock full of the most wonderfully diverse and awesome suppliers that will help you make your wedding EWEnique to you and your partner
The first Extravaganza on the 1st February will take place at the beautiful Fazeley Studios, a heavenly gem in the heart of Birmingham’s industrial Digbeth. The Fazeley Studios café is always a popular and a great place to sit and consider all the unique wedding products and services on offer.
The second Extravaganza on the 1st March will be held at Far Rockaway, a hub inspired by urban street art and culture, serving New York style food that has opened its doors as a new wedding reception venue in the heart of Shoreditch, London’s creative district.
Each show is going to be different so come and explore…. who knows what amazingly Baaaad Ass things EWE will find for your EWEnique wedding day!
At both shows there will be a chill out area and café facilities so you can have a drink and something to eat and just sit down and take it all in. There will also be a fun-tastic treasure hunt choc full of prizes where answers to clues can be found on the Mo Flo’s stands.
They promise a fun day out, with lots of giveaways, lots to learn and see and not one bit like a ‘normal’ wedding fair!
