It’s almost two years ago that we first met the lovely people at Box Tree Events when we were exhibiting at a wedding show in Leeds. It was a typical large scale wedding show: exhibitors packed in, visitors shepherded through the aisles like they were in Ikea and being jumped on from all sides by suppliers desperate to get their business. We decided that there had to be a better way – and so the Wedding Experience at Denton Hall was born: a beautiful venue dressed for a wedding, one or two suppliers only from each category, champagne and Box Tree canapes on arrival, a strictly “no hassle” policy and, most importantly, the space and time to meet and chat in comfort.
Last year was the inaugral event and it was a great success. As always though, there were things we learned from and things we decided could be done better, and as a result the May 2013 Wedding Experience was even better. Not only did we have Denton Hall this time, but also a full scale Wedding Tipi from the lovely people at Totally Tipi, both dressed by the very talented girls at Leafy Couture and Rose Pink Vintage. The whole place was fantastically stunning. The chance for a photo shoot to mark the occasion was too good to miss and thanks to an amazing couple whose wedding we photographed last year, Sian and Chris, we even managed to magic up a bride and groom!
Watch out for the 2014 event next Spring – we wager it will be better still!
