Milntown Wedding Fair – 9th October 2011

Yesterday saw Milntown Estate in Ramsey hold their first wedding fair in conjunction with A3 Island Marquees; the rain held off, the sun managed to make a brief appearance and despite confusion with closed roads it turned out to be a busy day for all the wedding suppliers that attended.

A beautiful setting for A3 Marquees, with cars exhibited by Platinum Cars and Diamond Cars

There was a great variety of suppliers to greet guests in the marquee, from florists and photographers, kilts and cakes, and the delicious smelling chocolate fountain and hog roast!

Finishing Touches showed various ways to dress tables and chairs

The vintage theme that has been so popular in 2011 is still continuing with lots of Brides showing interest in the displays from The Flower Studio and Vintage Weddings & Events IOM.

During the afternoon, everyone was treated to a fashion show of bride & bridesmaid dresses from the Bridal House, Ramsey.  All the dresses were absolutely stunning, but these were some of my favourites….

Lena models a stunning gowns from the Alfred Angelo collection that was designed as a homage to the dress worn by Kate Middleton.
Katie models another Alfred Angelo design - a 50's style calf length white tulle skirt with décolleté neckline, complimented with a pretty 54inch veil


Georgia models a fabulous dress by award winning top British designer, Ian Stuart - appropriately called Flowerbomb! This is a silk dress with a collage of vintage style flowers, lace and tulle with a figure flattering fitted bodice
Katie models a gorgeous gown from Spanish designers Pronovias. This body skimming, ivory georgette dress has silver Art Deco beading leading down to diamond panels of fabric around the base to create a flattering full skirt


Last but not least, pretty Freya models an Alfred Angelo Flower Girl dress with tulle skirt and sapphire satin trim

The next wedding fair hosted by A3 Island Marquees/Finishing Touches is going to be at the Claremont Hotel, Douglas on Sunday 6th November from 12 until 4pm and will have a Winter Wonderland theme.  If you weren’t able to attend the Milntown and A3 Marquees wedding fair, I hope this report has given you a bit of a taste and all of the suppliers that were exhibiting are listed below:
