Wedding fair season is starting up again … and it’s nearly Spring …

Wedding fairs are a great way to gather information about recommended suppliers. Once again, I am delighted that I have been invited to show at The Pines Calyx, a beautiful eco-friendly wedding venue in St Margaret’s Bay near Dover. Their website is here: Details of the wedding fair are on their site, but it’s on Sunday 25 March from 11am until 4pm. They have a dedicated wedding co-ordinator, the lovely Lisa Smith, who will be on hand to answer any questions and I’ll be there, showing a selection of weddings that I have photographed and also Elaine and Roger’s wedding at Pines Calyx too.

Do pop along to visit, it’s such a beautiful venue and worth considering for your wedding and reception. And who knows, there might be a special offer for any couples booking their wedding photography on the day …

The last of the season … well, for wedding fairs for Samantha Jones Photography, that is!

It’s not quite the end of the wedding season here at Samantha Jones Photography (although I am not sure if weddings really fit into any one particular season any more!).

I’m attending my final wedding fair for this year … I’ve been to a few: Hadlow Manor, near Tonbridge; Mount Ephraim, near Faversham; Hamlets Hotel in Larkfield; Leeds Castle Wedding Show at Leeds Castle, Dover College Wedding Show … and the final one is at the gorgeous eco-friendly resort of The Pines Calyx ( I was there in March of this year at their wedding open day and am delighted to be returning this Sunday, 30 October (remember, the clocks go back!).

I photographed Elaine and Roger’s celebrations there earlier this year (Elaine and Roger on the blog) and am pleased to be returning there next year for Yvette and Tim’s celebrations and, hopefully, many more.

If you have met me at a previous wedding fair and we maybe didn’t have time to chat properly and you fancy the idea of enjoying the wonderful grounds at Pines Calyx and checking through my albums and wedding photography packages in the peace and quiet of the roundels, then do join me and other enthusiastic recommended wedding suppliers this Sunday. I’m hoping for the weather to be as glorious as it was for Elaine and Roger!

Hadlow Manor {wedding fair}

What an amazing day! So many happy and excited brides-to-be and their fiances and/or friends! The sun shone on Hadlow Manor and in excess of 100 brides came through the door.

If you are one of the brides who picked up my card or stopped by for a chat, do please get in touch so that we can discuss your plans further. As an additional incentive, I will be offering 10% off all packages to brides who book me as a result of the wedding fair. Just tell me the colour of my promotional giveaway pens to secure the booking.

There are certain dates in the wedding year which are very popular with couples, especially those during half term and school holidays and the peak summer months. If you are planning a summer wedding in 2012, please don’t delay in finding your key suppliers otherwise you could be disappointed to find that they are already booked.

Do drop me an email, give me a call 07786 314973 and check out my website

If you missed the chance to meet me in person at Hadlow Manor, don’t forget that I will be exhibiting at the Pines Calyx this coming Sunday, 27 March, more details in my post here: Pines Calyx wedding fair.
