The Seaview and Sparkle wedding fair is a bi-annual event organised by By Invitation Events in at the Imperial Hotel in Torquay, Devon.  By Invitation Events are always popular with suppliers as they come with lunch, it’s so nice not to be worrying about packing sandwiches while stressing on every aspect of your stand.  The setting for this fair in Torquay is quite a venue.  From outside I don’t think anyone would claim it’s much to look at but inside, well just wow.  It has a sense, of grandeur, of history, luxury and most importantly given it’s location the coast and sea.   It’s function rooms and hotel rooms have magnificent views out over Torbay courtesy of the hotel’s location looking down on the bay.

I have some great coast and beach related designs for bespoke wedding invitations and stationery so was thrilled to be asked to attend her by Michelle from By Invitations.  Also on a nice day its great to be able to relax and take a walk around Torquay (or maybe run) once you are all packed away.

So see it as potentially good show for my bespoke wedding invitations and stationery.  These Photos are from the summer version in Sept 2016 and publish the Winter one’s from 2017 soon.  With the first ones being from the hotel.
