For our next Bridal Market foray we’re heading east where we’ll be taking over the gorgeous pastel coloured walls of  Edinburghs Biscuit Factory in the creative hub of Leith.

_________________________________________________________________

We are BEYOND excited at the endless possibilities to dress those crumbly, exposed brick walls with all our creative wedding goodness. As usual expect the absolute cream of the crop in wedding suppliers handpicked for you from throughout Scotland. This 2 day event is for modern couples looking to create stylish, relaxed & seriously FUN celebrations. (No chair covers or tartan ribbons here.)

For tickets & the lowdown head to the market info page – can’t wait to see you there and here all your ideas. (hello pinterest!)
