Brides of Culture Wedding Exhibition 2013

“Brides of Culture is an African Caribbean Bridal Exhibition for brides and grooms to be, who are looking for a little more than what is available in the mainstream in the UK”

Hello my lovelies! Last weekend I finally got to attend the Brides of Culture Exhibition. I say finally because a year ago I had booked tickets, but had not realised that just two weeks before the event was to take place I would actually be on a plane flying to the Big Apple.

The Brides of Culture Wedding exhibition is now in its eighth installment and attracts brides from across Africa, the Caribbean and Asia. Suppliers on the day ranged from cake designers, caterers, stationery designers, make-up artists, photographers and so much more. I met with some great wedding suppliers and the lovely masterminds behind them……stay tuned for some exclusive guest posts in the near future!!
