It’s wonderful to be able to meet up face-to-face with couples planning their weddings. Now that wedding fairs are opened up again, it’s a great way to meet and chat (and book) suppliers for your wedding day team.
Here’s a list of upcoming wedding fairs where I’ll be exhibiting, You can always contact me to find out more https://www.samanthajonesphotography.co.uk/contact/:
26 February 2023: The Dover Marina Hotel, Dover Waterfront, Waterloo Crescent, Dover, Kent CT17 9BP (https://www.dovermarinahotel.co.uk/weddings/)
An iconic building on the sea front, there are few places in the UK where you can (nearly) have your photographs taken with France in the background. And avoid dive bombing sea gulls. And tourists …
The image below was from a styled photoshoot that was held at the Dover Marina Hotel – such a fun day and so much laughter. There’s something about being at the seaside which makes you feel alive!
12 March 2023: The Alexander Centre, 17 Preston St, Faversham ME13 8NZ (https://thealex.org.uk/weddings/)
Within walking distance of my house (no problems with me getting caught in traffic), the Alexander Centre is the largest venue within the town centre of Faversham. They have a team of recommended suppliers and I’ve photographed some wonderful celebrations there. Faversham offers some fabulous photo opportunities and, because I’m local, I know the best ones.
The draping for this wedding (and many others) is provided by the stylists who work alongside Amanda at https://styledtoremember.co.uk/
1 April 2023: Open day at Hempstead House Hotel (https://www.hempsteadhouse.co.uk/)
I am about 15 minutes away from this country house hotel which has lots of little quirky places for portraits. Why not pop along and meet their trusted and recommended suppliers (that’s me, by the way).
23 April 2023: The Yarrow Hotel, Ramsgate Road, Broadstairs CT10 1PN (https://www.yarrowhotel.co.uk/)
I’m delighted to be taking part at this wedding fair. I was lucky enough to photograph the lovely Lorna and John’s wedding there in the summer of 2022 and I hope to book lots more couples who are celebrating here.
Besides being a gorgeous venue, filled with natural light, it’s also only a stone’s throw away from Broadstairs beach where you can buy your photographer an ice cream and get some amazing images too.
Lastly for the spring fairs, I’ll be exhibiting for two days at Evegate.
20/21 May 2023: Evegate, Evegate Business Park, Smeeth, Ashford, Kent. TN25 6SX (https://www.evegate.co.uk/)
Although not a venue in itself, you can find several excellent suppliers already onsite and the wedding fair is going to be AMAZING. Sam, who is organising the fair, runs the Pretty Prep Studio (https://www.theprettyprepstudios.co.uk/) which is a wonderful setting for your bridal preparations if you are getting married in a local venue.
And personal friend, https://navettejewellery.co.uk/ is also based here.
Feel free to get in touch with any questions and I hope to see you there https://www.samanthajonesphotography.co.uk/
