With the wedding season starting, I had the occasion to get in the romantic mood! Claire from uniquestyleedinburgh offered me the opportunity to be a part of the Walking Wedding Fair. It was a fair held on the Grassmarket, one of the loveliest parts of the Edinburgh old town. A lot of local high end brands and shops took part to present their wide range of unique and unusual wedding fashion, accessories, decorations and food
One of the highlights was the fashion show in three acts. Two of them in the beautiful castle view Apex hotel and one run outside, in a beautiful scottish spring.
This event gave me the opportunity the have a even better insight in the Edinburgh fashion scene.
Walkers Slater: I fell in love with that shop four years ago when I was visiting Scotland and I had the chance to work with them recently (post to come soon).
Bill Baber who’s making homemade knitwear in that little shop on the grass market with his wife for more than thirty years was a splendid discovery! The clothes are really comfy, original and perfect for the cold winter here.
Fabhatrix, a local hat maker, enchanted me with those original pieces, unique and inspiring.
Those pieces were coupled with scarfs from Hawico, a Scottish brand established in 1874. Wore together you feel like participating at the Ascot race or a royal wedding!
I put the bags from The Cambridge Satchel Company on my wish list for both their quality and the elegance. If you’re a fan of classic bags with a touch fancyness search no more!
Godiva makes dresses and also sells cute vintage like the birdy one.
I also coupled my wedding dress with my own brogues: I became the fancy rock’n’roll bride!
A few other local shops amazed me, as the macarons pyramid made by La Barantine, the cheese “cake“, basically a wedding cake made of cheese. And of course the beautiful drinks that someone offered us from the The Whisky Shop: a raspberry vodka and a sweet gin that took my love for gin on another level.
I also had a lot of fun with the different models walking there, four guys and four girls in total, very different styles and different approaches of fashion.
All together it was a a really enriching experience. I met a lot of inspiring fashion designers as well as interesting people and brands!
