I was also curious to have a good look around the new theatre and document the first wedding fair it has hosted in conjunction with Ice The Cake.

The natural flow takes people up the stairs – with the light flooding in through the vast glass walls on this fine day.
It’s not just one bridal house but many – presenting a great array of the latest bridal fashions. And yes groom fashions too (thank you). The highlight for me was the Venetian masks used in one of the bridal parades – very theatrical (very happy to shoot a wedding in Venice if anyone is asking!)
After the first show I had the opportunity to wander around and see all the exhibitors – great to meet all the familiar faces and a few new ones.
Makeup, flowers, cake decorating demonstrations were on in the theatres second space and walking a bit further on (which I’m sure not many did) I came across a smaller space ideal for a more intimate ceremony or those whom just don’t want to marry on the boards!
Were you lucky enough to watch a fantastic demonstration by Emma Newman at our recent Wedding Show at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre? If not, don’t worry here’s a little recap…
Emma Said: “On Sunday 2nd September I demonstrated 4 pieces which are easily replicated at home, with the right equipment and good quality flowers.
The first piece was the candelabra, the base of which I created on an oasis wreath frame, soaked in water.
I pinned aspidistra leaves around the edge to hide the frame, and around the inside edge also.
Next I started creating a compact design using hydrangea, roses, eustoma and carnations – I grouped the the roses and carnations for impact and filled in with the contrasting purple eustoma and hydrangea in white.
The second piece I designed was the log, the piece of wood I used was just over 1 metre long and had 8 holes drilled in for test tubes to be placed in.
The third item was a collared bouquet, the collar was made from a bead garland and I held it in place with wires. I used several thicker wired to then create a sturdy handle on the frame. These were taped together for added security.
Again I began with a large hydrangea bloom which nearly filled the collar and into that I inserted groupings of roses and carnations, finally I added some eustoma buds to give the design some movement. I finished the design by cutting the stems level and binding in ribbon.

The final design I created was a vintage bottle, ideal for your dressing table or to brighten up a dull corner – check the neck of the bottle before choosing blooms – unlike I did!! I used a hydrangea bloom in white, a couple of anthirrinums to give the display height and then I folded aspidistra leaves to create a collar. Taped them together and put in the bottle. The bottle was then placed on a mirror tile and I wrapped a string of pearls to add to the vintage feel.
Thanks for watching! Emma x
