I first was introduced to One Fine Day, a wedding fair 2 years ago when my wedding dress designer at the time suggested I check out this wedding fair which is a more refreshingly curated and creative event than the large traditional bridal expos, with a handpicked collection of sought after vendors in the wedding field. Not only is One Fine Day the perfect outlet for creative couples to gain inspiration from unique vendors in the planning of their big day, but a fun way to spend a Saturday or Sunday with your friends/family/bridal party. She was right. On a smaller scale, one of the most interesting aspects of this event are the bridal couture runways which showcases bridal designers’ latest ideas on bridal fashion. Unveiled in a romantic, nature like setting at The Cutaway in Barangaroo, all designs were eye catching with looks that yes, bowed to tradition but adding a touch of sultriness, flamboyant ruffles, intricate floral details, slender arm-sheathing sleeves, some with chaste necklines, some more provocative.
A fine young gentleman at the fair in Sydney yesterday comes up to me and asks, "Would you like to try some cake?" I would've ordinary said yes but blogging duties called and said "No thank you but if you let me know where your stall is I'll come and visit after the bridal runways." A visit I made, and this gentleman was the function and events manager for the Fink Group, who look after Quay Restaurant, Bennelong Sydney, Firedoor and Otto Ristorante ... "Oh a very good friend of mine is getting married in Otto in a few months." I said. "Really, which month" he asks. "April" I replied. When I mentioned her name he replies, "I'm looking after her wedding!!" OMG!!! What a small world. "Nice to meet you, my name is Thibault". Thank you Thibault from the Fink Group for offering me a piece of chocolate cake because if you didn't, I would not have known you were looking after my good friend's wedding!
One Fine Day is a great event to attend to obtain a curated inspiration for all creative things related to weddings. With Sydney event now done and dusted, Melbourne is next followed by Perth and New York.
