the fake wedding 2019!

Join us on 13th October at Kings Weston House for The Fake Wedding

Welcome to The Fake Wedding, the South West's only fully immersive wedding planning experience. We give you the opportunity to see a range of wedding suppliers showcase their skills as they would at a real wedding. Complete with a lavish fake ceremony, a drinks reception, tearoom, speeches, entertainment and a fully styled venue this is THE best way to plan for your big day.


Ever thought how much easier it would be to plan your wedding or civil partnership if you could see your potential suppliers in action before you make a decision on who to choose? Wouldn't it be great if you could meet suppliers face to face, ask questions and get to know them in a relaxed, inclusive environment? 

Tickets are just £7 in advance and £9 on the day. We have a limited capacity so we recommend booking ahead to secure a place. Ticket price includes a glass of bubbles, the opportunity to attend a speech writing workshop and a floristry workshop, and the chance to meet and chat to some of the best independent wedding suppliers in and around Bristol.


We promise, even if you're the kind of person who doesn't usually 'do' wedding fairs we've designed this with you in mind.

"I would never have been able to drag my other half to a conventional wedding fair so The Fake Wedding was a breath of fresh air! We have actually cancelled our registry office and are now going to have a celebrant in the field where the reception party is. That's how powerful the day was."

top tips for getting the most out of your day

  • This is not your average wedding fair, so we recommend coming for the whole day and enjoying everything that is on offer. You are a guest at our Fake Wedding!

  • Ask questions and get stuck into a workshop. Use this as your opportunity to find out as much as possible about our unique suppliers.

  • Enjoy a cup of tea and a piece of homemade cake in our tearoom. Vegan and gluten free options available

  • Make sure to collect your copy of the Suppliers Directory - this includes contact details for every supplier and means you will have everything in one place and won't go away with handfuls of flyers. We know they always end up in the bin!

  • This is a relaxed affair. The day is yours to enjoy as you wish. We are on hand to give as much or as little advice as you require.
