Event Preview: The Wedding Sanctuary – 3rd March 2013

Hi my name is Andri Benson and I run wedding planning company Always Andri Wedding Design, I’m delighted to be guest blogging for LoveLuxe and look forward to posting about wedding trends, styling ideas and planning advice. For my first post I thought I’d introduce you to The Wedding Sanctuary: an innovative wedding event designed to offer the best one on one planning support available, top design inspiration and personal style advice. Your one-stop planning refuge.

The Wedding Sanctuary is taking place on Sunday 3rd March at RSA House in London and has been conceived by the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners . Now it’s not just another wedding fair, where the Wedding Sanctuary really comes into its own is how each area is a dedicated zone that will help in different areas of your wedding planning. The Inspiration Zone that in my role as creative director of the event I’ve been overseeing will have 5 stunning tables designed by fellow UKAWP members, (including fellow LoveLuxe guest bloggers Michelle Pierre Carr _ Fabienne Slater) with flowers by top florist Mary Jane Vaughn and beautiful rental pieces from Options Hire. Plus a dessert table of tasty treats by Tempting Cake.


You can then head to the Advice zones to chat with caterers Harbour _ Jones, (who will be providing delicious drinks and nibbles on the day) top wedding photographer Julia Boggio and filmmaker Adrian Stone from the Dreamcatchers, and have all you stationery questions answered by cutting edge stationery designers Cutture. In the Boudoir you can admire beautiful wedding dresses by Johanna Hehir and talk bridesmaids with twobirds bridesmaids and accessories with Victoria Millésime. You can also have mini hair and makeup trials with Severin Hubert of the Hepburn Collection and Mariam Jensen.
