On occasion, when hosting so many popular Wedding Fayre in our Annual Calendar, in rare circumstances – we may have to cancel a fayre that has been advertised for some time prior.
This can be for reasons beyond our control, but most importantly – it is better for the event to be cancelled than to be unsucessful for all concerned, that is; the wedding venue, the attending exhibitors & the visiting Brides&Grooms-to-be who were hoping to see lots of ideas & inspiration... However, with so many of our wedding fayres to visit all across Hampshire & the South Coast, there is always the option of coming along to another of our events as listed on our website.
We always note on our details to please ‘Check before travelling’ to save any inconvenience, and as you will see from our comprehensive list on both our website & social media, all of our active fayres are listed with details about them – so if we have to remove one, details won’t be displayed any longer, therefore suggesting that the fayre is not taking place.
Unfortunately our fayres are also often advertised on other wedding-related-websites too (with or without our knowledge) and although we do our utmost to have all details removed, it is all but impossible to remove all traces from the internet. If in doubt or if you would like any further details regarding any of our Wedding Fayres, please contact us directly.
Alternatively, if you are interested in the hotel/venue potentially for your special day – its worth contacting them directly, asking for their Wedding Events Coordinator.
