Magpie Wedding Show: Harrogate

Harrogate October 2017 flyer for Magpie Wedding

Magpie Wedding Show: Harrogate – Cedar Court Hotel, Park Parade, Harrogate HG1 5AH. Read on for the full programme……

October 8th  11-3.30, £2 entry on the door or advance, £5 VIP Tickets for Prosecco and a bride goody bag.

The Magpie Wedding Show (formerly the National Vintage Wedding Fair) returns to Harrogate on October 8th with its Boutique Fair.

Magpie Wedding embraces all things creative for your wedding day; from the flowers to the dress, from the photography to the styling. By creative we mean design led – so whatever the latest trend is, we are there, be it boho, festival or even jungle! We want artisan, unique brides and grooms to enjoy discovering new styles for their day, in a relaxed environment – be it the blog, the wedding show or the directory.

For the vintage lovers out there – fear not, we still are the place to find true vintage and antique dresses and accessories – we will never stop promoting this ethical and stylish way. We were the first vintage wedding fair in the UK and are proud to write about it in the national press.

Each show has fabulous suppliers, a craft DIY workshop or two, a fashion “show and tell” parade, live music, cake and a cuppa, the opportunity to go VIP and above all, an ethos that celebrates you! So no teeth whitening, no weight loss, nothing that makes you feel anything less than beautiful.

Workshops: We have 2 workshops hosted by Paper Rose who host workshops across the UK.

11.45: Tissue Paper Pom Poms

In this workshop, you will be shown how to make fun looking paper pom poms. Pom poms are a quick, cheap and easy way to decorate the ceiling and walls of your wedding venue. Tissue paper comes in a variety of colours to compliment you wedding theme or style. In this short workshop you will learn the basic skill to make a dramatic display and variations on that skill to make the pom pom unique to your wedding.

12.45: Paper flowers

In this workshop you will learn how to create paper flowers. Paper flowers are a unique way to create a bespoke bouquet or decorations. Using different papers will adapt the look of the flowers to suit different styles of wedding. This simple origami technique can be made simply to great effect and adds texture to a bouquet or centre piece when used along side our paper rose flowers.

The workshops are free of charge but spaces are limited to 10 at each one. Book your place by emailing

Fashion Parade is at 1.30 and showcases the work of our exhibitors

3.30 – doors close
