Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - VIC­TO­RIA NUGENT

A NEW bou­tique wed­ding fair willill hit Townsville next month.

The Hitch and Blos­som Wed­ding Fair is the new­est ad­di­tion to the city’s wed­ding scene. The event is the brain­child of lo­cal de­signer Crys­tal Maruna, who makes bow ties for her la­bel Jum­ble Cul­ture By Tilly Fluf.

Ms Maruna said sell­ing the bow ties at many dif­fer­ent wed­ding fairs led to her see­ing a gap in Townsville’s mat­ri­mony mar­ket.

“The con­cept is in­tended to be some­thing fresh, cre­ative and in­no­va­tive with a fes­ti­val vibe,” she said.

“I have at­tended lots of wed­ding fairs down south and I wanted to bring some­thing like that here.

“I’ve been a part of the ex­cite­ment and the vibe at some great events.”

The event will bring to­gether all things re­lated to wed­dings, in­clud­ing dresses, cakes, flo­ral back­drops, lawn games and more.

Ms Maruna said cou­ples could mix and match dif­fer­ent styles to make their per­fect wed­ding day.

“There may be a lit­tle bit of boho in the wed­ding dress but a re­ally sim­ple elegance at the venue,” she said. “We just want to bring loved up cou­ples, their fam­ily and friends to­gether with tal­ented wed­ding ven­dors.”

Hitch and Blos­som will take place on Septem­ber 16- 17 at Quay­side Tem­i­nal in South Townsville. Tick­ets are avail­able from hitchand­blos­som. com. au
