Wedding shows are often filled with salesmen trying to sell you the newest guestbooks (where guests can sign a sheet of glass with a fancy pen), or large decor companies (who are showing off newest candelabras which are topped perfect silk rose spheres adorned with crystals.) This is not the case with The Wedding Co. Market which is hosted by the amazing Catherine Lash.
Catherine hand selects each and every vendor and ensures they are all local. She has been doing this show for over twenty years and each year is better than the last. The shows are now hosted at Wychwood Barns, which is always filled with sunlight and surrouded by creative studios.
Attendees will encounter a handful of business owners from every aspect of the wedding biz whether it is photographers, dress designers or mobile coffee trucks. All of which are just cool, down to earth, good people.
Out of all of the wedding shows to attend, this is the one. And, it is the only one that I will be a part of because it embodies everything I love about this industry.
