Apply to exhibit

At Magpie Wedding, we run creative luxe wedding shows, ethical wedding shows as well as curating the Eclectic Boutique at the National Wedding Show in Manchester and London. Our ethos is to give our couples something interesting and fashion led to look at – whether it is at a vintage event, an urban event, or a luxe event.

Our shows do not promote teeth whitening nor weight loss, or more traditional items such as chair covers or chocolate fountains. But we love UK indie dresses, artisan jewellery, stunningly different cakes – you get the picture!

The Ethical Wedding Show is for couples who care about the planet and want a wedding day that doesn’t impact it. They are what we call “ethically minded” – they still want the day to be beautiful, and creative, they just want to be able to add vegan canapes or locally sourced booze!

They don’t want items flown in from the other side of the world. They want to know that everything will be recycled either and don’t want an single use plastic anywhere!

Each show will also have talks and demonstrations, and we have some exciting sponsors to announce very soon.

As you can expect we need to make sure that everyone involved really does care about the planet so there are some questions added to the application form below that you need to complete!

We are always looking for new businesses to work with so if you are interested in our shows generally, please join our mailing list by filling out the Enquiry Form.

 

The ways it works is this…..

You complete the application form, telling us a bit more about yourself and which show you are interested in. We will then get in touch and tell you more about it and whether we feel you are a right fit for our couples. We are not just about bums on seats – we want to create perfect matches between wedding suppliers and couples, so it is important we get it right.

We also make sure there are only a certain amount of each supplier at every event – this amount depends on the size of the venue and exhibitor numbers.

We are not giving out tables at our shows – we believe a row of tables at wedding shows is a bit boring! Therefore we are banning the trestle table! We will host a webinar beforehand to give you ideas of what to do instead – but for now we urge you to think out of the box with your display and say no to the trestle!

THE BOOKING FORM IS BELOW

The Virtual Wedding Fair

 

Virtual Wedding FairThe Virtual Wedding Fair is where couples can sit back from the comfort of their sofa, or maybe even stay in bed, and watch our hand picked suppliers coming live to them through their phone,  tablet or pc.

 

Launched early 2019 (long before any lockdown) The Virtual Wedding Fair was the first Virtual Wedding Fair in the UK, and is where we bring all the suppliers our couples are looking for. You will share live your products for them to drool over, you will give them hints and tips on your chosen field (think how much wedding cake do they need, or should they get an engagement shoot) and you will launch an online competition or promotion too.

As it is live they will have a chance to ask you questions there and then, but if they are watching later they can always send you a message.

Now we know this means that they can’t actually try the cake (as we can’t teleport cake through a phone but we are working on that!) but they can always do that when they arrange to go and meet you to chat further and hey, to book you!

 

 

KEY DATES FOR YOUR DIARY!

 

🖤  October 10th – all day  on Facebook – South & North UK Weddings

🖤  October 11th – all day on IGTV and Insta – South & North UK Weddings

What you need to do next

This is an application process rather than going straight through to booking. Please apply using the form below sharing as much info about you as possible. We will then invite you to a  FaceTime/Zoom call so we can chat further if needed. It is important we get the right people for our brand and our brides as we want this to work for us and you. We can share hints and tips with you too if you are new to video.

 

 

FOR ALL SHOWS AND EVENTS – Please read our full T’s and C’s before completing the form.

    I would be interested in being a part of the fashion show too if that’s availiable. I have in the past been backstage manager at many fashion show and theatre performances. I would love to take part if it’s availiable.
