There’s a great opportunity for new vintage and vintage-inspired wedding craft businesses in the Something New Award from the National Vintage Wedding Fair…
It can sometimes be hard to get your foot in the door, or even to know where to start to get promotion in the early stages of a business, so the Something New Award has been created by Kate and Adam Beavis from the National Vintage Wedding Fair, to celebrate exciting, new talent in the vintage wedding industry and to offer a helping hand on the journey.
Kate explains, “We want to give an opportunity for new wedding businesses who have embraced the vintage style, to showcase their work to others in the industry as well as to thousands of vintage loving brides and grooms. The winner will receive an exhibition space at one of our events, free advertising for a year as well as a promotional blog feature.”
“Our fair is recognised by our couples as celebrating true vintage style, with hundreds of original vintage gowns at every event. We also showcase the best florists, cake makers, photographers, musicians, stationary designers and more, so this competition is open to anyone in the wedding industry. There are only 2 rules: their business must be less than 12 months old and must be vintage or vintage inspired”, Adam continues.
The award is judged by industry experts who immerse themselves in vintage, design and weddings daily: Annabel Beeforth, the lady behind the Love My Dress wedding blog and writer of the book Style Me Vintage: Weddings; Sophie Grabham, the Deputy Editor from Wedding Ideas magazine; Kiera Buckley-Jones, the stylist from Homes and Antiques magazine; and finally the team here at Stitch Craft Create!
