Down the bridal path
A fair for brides who want to get married on Waiheke will offer a showcase of what the island has to offer.
The Waiheke Wedding Fair will be at Batch Winery from 10am to 4pm on October 20.
It is the second wedding fair organised by Coco Lily Events on the island and follows requests by vendors for a second opportunity to showcase their creative expertise, event Sophia Cohen says.
‘‘Brides continually look for inspiring creative and contemporary influences for their big day. The Waiheke Wedding Fair showcases the new and the traditional alongside the latest global trends in wedding fairs.’’
Ms Cohen says activities will include artisan food producers, live entertainment, wine tastings, cocktail tastings and scheduled events alongside boutique
director vendors – from florists to cake designers and venue providers.
Each guest will be welcomed with a complimentary glass of Batch winery bubbles.
‘‘Batch Winery is a state of the art winery with views that can entertain all members of the bridal group, including children,’’ Ms Cohen says.
Tickets can be purchased at waihekeweddingfair. co.nz/buy-a-ticket at $40 each, which includes a return ferry ticket with Fullers and courtesy transport to the venue, entry and a complimentary glass of Batch Blanc de Blanc.
