Here at Under the Vintage Veil, we’ve built up a fair few close relationships over the years. In this case, we were lucky enough to be there to exhibit at the very first ever Miss Vintage Wedding Affair, and witnessed something truly special being born. Today it’s London’s biggest vintage wedding fair with the largest selection of vintage wedding dresses available to try on. The show has gone from strength to strength – and it’s been a real privilege to be there every step of the way.
This Sunday, quirky, vintage-loving brides are in for a treat as Miss Vintage Wedding Affair returns to London for a fourth run. Following three successful fairs catering for creative brides-to-be, the fourth Miss Vintage Wedding Affair will be held at Battersea Arts Centre on Sunday 20th October 2013 from 11am until 4pm. If you can’t attend the autumn event then there will be another spring fair at BAC on the 30th March. Tickets are £3 on the door and are also available to purchase in advance online.
If you can’t make it on Sunday, don’t despair! John and I will be there with our blogging hats on live tweeting from the fair as Miss Vintage Wedding Affair’s media partner for the day. Follow us at @thevintageveil on Twitter and using the hashtag #MVWA to ask your favourite suppliers questions and follow all of the action! You can also find us on Facebook and on instagram (also under @thevintageveil) for exclusive pictures and content.

There will also be an amazing interactive photo-booth installation by Rhapsody Road Photography.
