>> CRAFTING EXTRAVAGANZA << THE PERSONAL WEDDING FAIR AT HOMEMADE LONDON

I was a very lucky girl and was invited by the editor of Wedding Magazine, Catherine Westwood to attend The Personal Wedding Fair on their behalf and take lots of pics and report back. I snapped up the chance and had a really fun day and met lots of lovely ladies.

Homemade London is a super cute boutique in Central London that specialise in luxurious and indulgent creative experiences. Owner Nicola Barron has brought together London’s most stylish designers and crafts people, to produce a range of tailored workshops in which they share their secrets. At the end of every class, you will have made something you will want to keep forever or give to someone special.

You’ll work with the highest-quality materials, fabrics and ingredients to create objects of desire, beautifully packaged for you to take home with you. Whether you take a class alone or with friends, Homemade London classes are social experiences, so you can enjoy a glass of wine and a light supper or an afternoon tea as you work.

They also organise a range of parties and special events and offer a sewing cafe and workshop space for people who need a home-from-home in central London. Perfect for Hen Parties too!!!


The Personal Wedding Fair consisted of a day of workshops and masterclasses designed at helping brides to be to create a unique and crafty wedding. The workshops run from 10.30-16.30 (with an hours lunch break) and costs £50, plus you get a luxury goodie bag too!

I found the day informal, intimate and really enjoyable. We got to eat yummy cupcakes and drink tea from the prettiest vintage tea cups and then listened attentively to a team of experts that gave us lots of helpful tips and advice. I wish I had attended something like this as a bride to be, some of the information was invaluable and lots of the ladies were also sharing their experiences with each other too.

The Team:


Owner of Homemade and crafts expert! Nicola was on hand to show us how to create beautiful yet simple hand-crafted touches for your big day.



Planner Lucinda George offered tips on creating a wedding theme and balancing inspired design with budget.


Stylist Lucy from Channel 4 series Wedding House talked through the things every woman should consider when choosing her wedding dress. She also shared some of her favourite designers and places to shop.


Photographer Rebecca shed light on the different types of wedding photography, how to select and how to brief your photographer. She also gave the ladies some tips on posing to ensure they look their best on their big day.

So I’ve talked a lot, I’m sure by now you’re all eager to see some pics from our fun packed day!  Here goes....
