Magpie Wedding Show: Cedar Court Hotel, Park Parade, Harrogate HG1 5AH
October 8th 11-3.30, £2 entry.
Magpie Wedding embraces all things creative for your wedding day; from the flowers to the dress, from the photography to the styling. By creative we mean design led – so whatever the latest trend is, we are there, be it boho, festival or even jungle!
We want artisan, unique brides and grooms to enjoy discovering new styles for their day, in a relaxed environment – be it the blog, the wedding show or the directory.
For the vintage lovers out there – fear not, we still are the place to find true vintage and antique dresses and accessories – we will never stop promoting this ethical and stylish way. We were the first vintage wedding fair in the UK and are proud to write about it in the national press.
We source locally grown flowers in and around York as much as possible during the growing season.
Not only do British flowers usually have a superior scent to imported blooms, they will be fresher and last longer in your vase or decoration – minimum distance means maximum vase life. British grown are excellent value for money – when they are at their seasonal high, quality goes up and price comes down. Pure supply and demand! You will be supporting local industry, keeping farms happy and encouraging wildlife and biodiversity. British flowers and foliage show the seasons to the best – buy what’s looking good in peak season rather than what’s looking OK all year round.
