Why we love Wedding Fayres

Tis the season of wedding fayres and we love this time of year!  Getting to talk to excited Brides and Grooms planning their big day and attending some of the most beautiful wedding venues.

Munstone House Wedding Fayre

For Brides and Grooms it’s an excellent chance to meet lots of local suppliers in one place, getting ideas and inspiration, getting great discounts and even discovering great products and services that you hadn’t even considered.  It is also a great opportunity to meet suppliers face-to-face who will be responsible for products or services that you will be using on your big day.  For wedding fayres at a particular venue, it’s often a chance to see how that venue will be decorated on a wedding day and can give you an idea of space and what the venue will feel like full of people.

For exhibitors, well organised and well marketed wedding fayres can provide invaluable opportunities to meet brides and grooms and present them with your products and services.  Not only brides and grooms but it is also an opportunity to meet other wedding suppliers and build professional relationships.

For us here at The Cavalry of Heroes, we will always love the opportunity to speak with brides and grooms directly at a Wedding Fayre and answer any questions they may have about having horses and carriages at their wedding.  We always put a lot of care and attention into each Wedding Fayre and we have always had a positive outcome from every Fayre we have attended.  For brides, grooms and exhibitors alike, putting in the effort at these Fayres can be a really positive experience for all.

Look forward to seeing you at a Wedding Fayre soon!

Special thanks to Diva Wedding Fayres, Burgoynes and Elegant Additions who have all put on some stunning and very worthwhile Wedding Fayres which we have had the privilege of attending.

The evening was full of surprises and fun at the Fair, with a big thank you going to Wendy Head who worked so hard to put on such a fantastic evening.

Unfortunately Marc wasn’t able to join us for the evening as he was working, so Rob very kindly stepped in to help and played the part of Circus Master very well.  Jess also kindly helped us by looking after Asgard for the evening while we were taking part in the awards.

Asgard enjoyed his time, as always,and was as good as gold.  He was even enchanted by the wonderful fire juggler, wanting to get as close as he could to the action.

French Knight on Asgard

What an amazing weekend; wonderfully organised and superbly entertaining!  The entire team had so much fun celebrating the 600 year anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt and the horses marvelled in all the attention!

There were horse and carriage rides around town in the morning alongside medieval tours by Hay History Group, a fantastic turn out by The Freemen of Gwent, as well as calligraphy and workshops to decorate swords and shields.

In the afternoon our Knights turned up to sword fight in and around the castle, followed by performances from the Morris Dancers and The Village Quire.  Culminating in a superb performance by the Hay Theatre Company of Shakespeare’s Henry V with the audience processing through town as either the English or the French ready to fight their final battle in front of the castle.

We met many a princess and brave knight willing to fight on the day and all of this in the fantastic grounds of Hay Castle.

In the evening Professor Anne Curry gave an illustrated talk on the Battle of Agincourt to an engaged audience.

At the end of it all Guinness, Asgard, Harry and Apollo all took a well-deserved roll in the fields before dinner and a good night’s sleep.
