Creative, modern wedding photography from Ellie Gillard photography…
“I launched Ellie Gillard photography in 2011, even in my first year, the weddings I shot were published on blogs and in magazines like Perfect Wedding and I went full time at the beginning of 2013. I love telling the story of a wedding day from my own artistic point of view, seeing it, feeling it, being part of it.”
“Photographically I love golden hour, window light, dark rooms, unconventional brides and grooms and oodles of love. I love unexpected venues – warehouses, pubs, outdoor ceremonies in the wilderness, by trees and lakes; in tipis and forests and old barns. Based in Norfolk as of the end of 2015 I’d love to work with more local couples, and will be offering £200 off my usual 9 hour hour package for anyone that books me at The Most Unusual Wedding Fair. I can’t wait to meet you!”
Oh yes! So excited to have Ellie back with us. Don’t miss the day and Ellie’s awesome offer too!

Founded by London artist and textile designer Sara Lowes, Animalesque creates unique, handmade animal headdresses and costume accessories rich with colour, texture and character.
These playful yet sophisticated pieces combine the distinctive expression of Sara’s skills in illustration, screen-print and fine embroidery, with her love of exploring narrative through theatre, dance and storytelling.
They are worn by the adventurous, the imaginative, the curious and the wild, and bridge the gap between playthings and wearable pieces of art.
Sara has collected diverse materials and techniques on her various travels, and her creations evolve through a process of continual experimentation. The character of each piece develops as the structure takes shape, brought to life by the quality of the fabrics used, the textural embellishments, the colour, the print and pattern.
Sara lovingly produces her collectible creations in her East London studio, and sells through the Animalesque website shop, as well as working on theatre and fashion commissions.
To see more of Sara’s beautiful work head here > www.animalesque.co.uk or of course come see the derail up close at the fair on the 6th November!

Working in partnership, Carol of Bramble Flowers and Lucy of Little Norfolk Flower, offer a snapshop of unique quintessential English country garden flowers for you on your wedding day.
All flowers are grown by talented flower farmer Carol Page at her English country garden here in Congham, Norfolk and then styled by florist Lucy Grant of Little Norfolk Flower thus offering you a truly memorable and beautiful flowery backdrop for your special day. A wide variety of English country flowers and foliage cultivated during the English growing season from March to October are styled to meet your own bespoke requirements and individual budgets and include, amongst many others, beautiful and fragrant peonies, roses, daisies, lavender and delphiniums.
Whether a beautiful bouquet for the bride and bridesmaids, tiny flowers for the flower fairies, special boutonnières and corsages for the groom and bridal party or stunning arrangements, arches, garlands, chuppahs and flower bombs for the church, venue or marquee, Little Norfolk Flower uses local country flowers grown here in Norfolk by Bramble Flowers to make your wedding flowers truly memorable. Little Norfolk Flower will always work with you to ensure your own specific flowery wishes are fulfilled whether it’s a vintage, country, woodland, boho or even Bollywood vibe! Lucy is also a farmer’s wife in her spare time and will often include wheat, barley, linseed and even quinoa in her work to give a really rustic feel and of course the obligatory straw bale, old potato box or zinc milk churn is never far away!
Carol says, ‘We are both so passionate about our Norfolk flowers and our work together and will always go the extra mile for any of our clients to make sure everything is perfect for them on the day. We are actually a rather eccentric pair! I’m usually to be found in the garden in my trusted wellies and fleece either planting, digging, weeding or cutting and Lucy is a familiar site on the local lanes, usually with her Little Norfolk Flower pinny, walking her beloved Labradors while foraging for the perfect piece of bramble, hawthorn or blackthorn for the perfect table centrepiece’.
Carol and Lucy are also pleased to be able to now offer an original and fun hen night option for brides and their friends making stunning flowery creations of your choice. A really memorable and fun way to spend time with special friends and a unique opportunity for great photos!
Carol, who trained as a floriculturist, and Lucy, who trained and worked previously in London, are looking forward to meeting anyone with a shared interest in beautiful country garden flowers at the TMUWF.

Wonderful Wonky Weddings is a Norwich based husband and wife partnership specialising in unique wedding stationery design. From Save The Dates to Invites through to ‘on the day’ printing such as Table Plans, Name Cards, Table Signs, Order Of Service and then of course Thank You Cards for after the big day.
They pride themselves on creating wonderful designs with a wonky twist whether that be displayed in their hand-drawn quirky artwork or just found in the fun informal language used in their copy. They have a number of ranges but also offer a bespoke design service if you have an idea (however madcap or zany) you’d like to see realised.
When they were planning their own wedding they found it frustrating that they couldn’t find wedding stationery that wasn’t boring, unoriginal and stuffy. They wanted something that looked and sounded like ‘them’ so decided to create their own range that complimented their personalities and created a theme and style that ran through the entire wonderful, wonky affair. They got so many compliments and requests to do our friend’s and family’s event stationery after this that Wonderful Wonky Weddings was inevitably born.
Wonderful Wonky Weddings isn’t for everybody. If you are looking for something a bit different that’s full of fun, imagination and quirky detail JUMP ONBOARD!!
