“Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza” Wedding Show

The “Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza” wedding show. When I first saw those words being bandied around on Facebook about a week ago, I can’t tell you how fast I started investigating this little nugget of interest. A wedding show described as an “eclectic wedding extravaganza” sounded brilliant. In light of my recent brand overhaul, I have spent considerable time shaking up my style in photography too. One word which I know can be applied to me and my personality is “eclectic”. And then they have the tagline “don’t be a wedding sheep”. I swear, it was like the mother ship of weddings was calling to me.

I was sorely tempted after seeing that is was being held just up the road from me at Fazeley Studios in Birmingham. A little gem of a location, hidden in the backstreets of Digbeth, and serves as a wedding venue too. After some more info digging, I discovered one of my photography idols, Shelly from Toast of Leeds was actually going to be there with a stand and everything. Bandwagon? Jumping on? You bet your little tushy I did, grabbing the opportunity to help her out for the day. Grabbed my camera bag and headed on over to Digbeth.

I had no idea what to expect, but I tell you what, I think I just about LOVED everything I saw. (Spot the unmistakable, hilarious and crazy Kat from Rock n’ Roll Bride, too.)
