Kelly started Belle’s Events in 2012 and her first ever fair was Belle’s Vintage Wedding Fair at Hove Town Hall where she was working in the events office. After a rather disastrous visit to a local wedding fair with her beautiful car Belle www.sussexlovebug.co.uk Kelly was on a a mission! Her vision was to create a fair for couples and suppliers to come together under one big vintage inspired roof to chat, enjoy the atmosphere and discover that there are people out there that will love what you do or simply ‘get you’, that’s what it’s about after all, finding the right person to help create your vision. The fair attracted couples from near and far who were desperate to find something different, something unique, something really special.
A year on and with 7 fairs under her belt we are very excited about Belle’s Vintage Wedding Fair number 4, she’s gone all out this time and has been blown away by the sheer amount of contacts she has had since Christmas. When I spoke to Kelly she told me that she is most thrilled that she has regulars now, it’s something she never thought would happen and she really does appreciate them. The entertainment that Kelly has arranged for Belle’s Vintage Wedding Fair is a reason on it’s own to visit on the day. Johnny Zero, Kelly’s right hand man on the day will not only be crooning his way around the event but has created a wonderful line up of acts including Cherry Morello, Maria Soriano, Mr Tunes Vintage DJwho recently wowed Kelly at the Doily Days Loves Weddings Magagazine launch party. Also the wonderful Noelle Vaughn, not to mention the brilliant Anna Sin and the Jukebox Bandits. These acts will be playing throughout the day in different locations and will be available to talk to about booking them for your wedding.

Being a crafty kind a girl I am most excited about the new addition to Belle’s Vintage Wedding Fair, The MAKE Fabulous Wedding area run by Donna Hogarth of Fabulous Flora. This area will give crafty, DIY brides the chance to try their hand at crafts that will help them to make special handmade pieces for their weddings. Recently Donna ran this area at Belle’s Bridal Boot Fair and had brides making their own jam jar flower displays, it’s such a great idea, take your Mum and Bridesmaids along to have a go too, you never know, this could save you a few pennies and turn out to be a whole lot of fun, Donna also run hen packages.
Outside Belle’s Vintage Wedding Fair you will obviously be able to meet Belle herself in all her glory, VW Splitty Wedding Hire , Crepe Lui and the cutest little caravan in the world, The Tinderbox. Inside there will be over 50 vintage inspired wedding suppliers to speak to during the day, each of them really talented and inspiring. Kelly’s fairs are not like your average wedding fairs, if you haven’t been to one yet this is the one to go to, even if you’re not getting married it really is a fun day out. Egg & Spoon will be there with a pop-up tea room too so you can stay for lunch. I would advise that you take some cash on the day as stall holders will be able to take deposits and there will be a chance to have your hair and make-up done by Coco Belle Styling or Pretty Pout.
If you are one of the first hundred through the door you get a complimentary glass of processco served by Glass Acts who hire out crystal glasses for weddings.
Entry is £3.50
