This free event gives couples a chance to browse in a beautiful setting surrounded by paintings and works of art.

The Art Gallery’s first handmade and vintage wedding fayre attracted over 1000 visitors. The event supports local businesses and has built on last year’s success with over twenty stalls and new additions such as 1950s dance demonstrations and the wide range of stalls offers high quality handmade and bespoke products and services. Vintage-style items such as jewellery, millinery and venue decoration along with services such as wedding photography and cake designers will be available on the day.

Local businesses based in Darlington Street will be showing their support for the event. There will be a fashion show of beautiful vintage style wedding dresses courtesy of Margot Raybould Wedding Department in House of Fraser and grooms can expect to see a selection of dapper suits loaned by Blooms Wedding Suits Hire. Brides-to-be can get inspiration for their wedding day look from local hairdressers Rapunzel, who will be on hand with make-up and hair styling tips and the Gallery café, will be serving vintage style afternoon tea with a delicious selection of cakes.

Event Organiser Andrea Jones said: “Last year’s event was extremely popular and due to visitor demand we decided to hold the fayre again. We have specially selected high quality products and services from big day essentials to finishing touches that make a wedding day extra special.”
