Belvoir Castle Wedding Fair | Sunday 26th November 2017

Highlights from the Belvoir Castle Luxury Wedding Fair on Sunday 26th November.

The sun was rising over the castle as Buckinghams arrived for the last wedding fair of the Autumn season. There really was no grander way to finish than at the magical Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire. Over 40 exhibitors filled this unique venue offering a wide choice of products and services to inspire well over 120 couples who had travelled from as far afield as London. Our luxury gift bags were filled with even more special products for this event and one lucky bride won Belvoir Castle’s luxury wedding hamper. 

From beautiful couture bridal wear, bespoke floral and cake designs and the very latest wedding trends, the Guards Room, State Dining Room, Ballroom and Old Kitchen were among some of the many rooms open to view at this stunning, historical wedding venue. A glass of bubbly welcomed guests as did the roaring fire! It was a very cold day outside. Hot canapés were served at 12.30pm and the Castle offered afternoon tea for those visitors who really made the most of their visit. 

For those couples interested in booking this unforgettable venue for their big day, the Castle had several special offers available which, if you still contact them, you may just be able to still book. Call the Belvoir Castle Event Manager, Caroline Rayson on 01476 871001 for full details.

It was a wonderful day and by the time we closed the Castle door the sun had already set on this fabulous and very special venue. 

Belvoir Castle | Buckinghams Styled Shoot

Belvoir Castle | Buckinghams Styled Shoot

Buckinghams exclusive photo shoot at Belvoir Castle.

We had a busy day ahead, whilst EJ was interviewing The Duchess of Rutland about her breathtaking home and what makes Belvoir Castle the most unique of wedding venues the the rest of the team were preparing for the styled shoot to follow.

Three stunning looks were created for this shoot, all suiting the many fantastic rooms you can choose from at Belvoir Castle.  The Pronovias dresses from RS Bridal Collection ranged from a grand ‘queen like’ dress, a medieval long sleeved dress to a slinky jewelled evening gown.

You can see the full interview with The Duchess in our Magazine- Issue Four 

The shoot was fantastic and Buckinghams loved it so much that we decided to return and create a cover for our Issue Four Magazine. We created a fourth look, this time releasing our inner Queen and taking an iconic style from Queen Victoria who stayed at Belvoir Castle for three nights in 1843. The Ivory & Co. tiara graced the cover along with the same model Lucy Inkley, who had her hair and makeup styled by Adele Coxon and photographed by Sophie May Morris

Buckinghams are proud to be organising a wedding fair like no other at Belvoir Castle, the magnificent home of the 11th Duke and Duchess of Rutland. Surrounded by beautiful gardens with stunning far reaching views, Belvoir Castle offers the grandest of locations for your wedding day and this event will be sure to inspire you. Make sure you register online for your free tickets and see the fairytale dream wedding venue come true.
