Miss Vintage Wedding Affair - 21 October

Following a successful event in February at Glenmore House in Surbiton, this is the organisers' second special, vintage-themed wedding fair.

This time round the fair will be held at Battersea Arts Centre - an award-winning theatre venue and Grade II* listed Victorian Town Hall that attracts brides and grooms looking for something a little bit out of the ordinary.
The fair will give couples the chance to talk to suppliers, watch demonstrations, eat cake, buy accessories, have their hair and make-up done and have it photographed! What a perfect day!

- When: Sunday 21 October 2012, 11am - 4pm
