On September 8th and 9th we presented at Andaz London hotel in Liverpool Street for their Wedding Fair. 

We were invited to set up on the Press evening and initial thoughts of the building were of a very luxury high standard. Our stand was in the first wine lounge room, and it was a decorative display of centrepieces, lilac flower displays, and glamorous lighting. With our tailoring stand we were surrounded by other suppliers, a photographers and a wedding cake stand next to us with jewellery companies across the room; all were laid out simplistic compositions, everything related well and worked off each other.

Myself and our new tailor Carl were greeted with champagne and canapés of beef, mushrooms, chicken, pastries etc. We were proud to be the only tailoring company that was partaking in the fair and in which we displayed two mannequins with a bespoke baste and a morning coat. We also had an array of our best-matched wedding cloth books from Loro Piana, Dugdale etc. And with a wedding appropriate colour scheme of our Fiorio handmade Italian ties.

As well as what we were receiving from the hotel we also offered out our own gift bags, with a pair of our luxury socks and a flyer stating our specific offers for the attendees. We even gave out some Whiskey to fully give viewers the ultimate experience of what we had to offer.

After speaking to some very lovely couples from different magazines and companies, we were then all ushered to see the different rooms the venue had to offer and also to see the other suppliers, firstly the Great Eastern and Gallery, then into Bishopsgate and Chancery room and then finally into the Temple for an Andaz Cocktail and DJ.

The hotel is unique in itself with opulent, elegant rooms with Victorian interiors in a great location of central London City, yet giving a quirky unique look; particularly for those east London couples.

For some inspiration for your wedding here’s some of our wedding photos from clients and most recently of Liam Moore who plays for Reading football club.
