Sternberg Clarke

When it comes to wedding planning, it can often be helpful to meet suppliers all in one place. Last weekend, Sternberg Clarke were lucky enough to attend the Kew Gardens wedding showcase (or #weddingsatkew if you know your hashtags) and we thought we’d write a blog about the event to help and prospective brides and grooms planning on visiting a wedding fair or showcase during 2018!

Naturally if you come to a wedding showcase with Sternberg Clarke in attendance, you’ll want to head straight to our booth. Why? Because we have live entertainment on show of course! At this particular wedding showcase, we were delighted to have The Brunt Ensemble playing to visitors as they walked around the Kew wedding venues, which on this occasion comprised Cambridge Cottage, the Orangery and the Nash Conservatory, which is where we were located. It’s a stunning building which you can read more about here.

Of course, we’d love it if the wedding was all about the entertainment but it turns out there are many other ways to enhance your wedding as well! From flowers to catering and everything in between, there were a multitude of suppliers on display, offering attendees cake samples, lighting arrangements and more. There really is so much that goes into wedding planning that it can be overwhelming to somebody visiting a wedding ‘day’ for the first time. As one might expect so soon after Christmas, there were a lot of couples that had gotten engaged over the holidays and it was so lovely to see the excitement in their eyes. Sometimes it was hard to know who was more overjoyed; the couple themselves or their family members who had come along as well!

Far be from us to show you exactly what you can see at a wedding showcase. We think it’s probably best if we link to a number of Instagram posts that featured the all-important hashtag – remember to pick one for your wedding – and show you what you can expect at a wedding fair. Don’t be pressured into booking anything while you’re there either (unless it’s an incredible deal), suppliers are well aware that a wedding is expensive and biding your time is certainly expected.
