TOPSHOP x MOST CURIOUS Wedding Fair Pop Up




You know what's happening tomorrow, right?!? It's only the TOPSHOP x MOST CURIOUS Wedding Fair Pop Up! We have collaborated with the Topshop team to bring you a mini Most Curious event to help celebrate the very eagerly awaited and hotly anticipated launch of Topshop's brand new bridal collection.

Happening this Thursday 13 and Friday 14 April, in store at Topshop's Oxford Circus branch, you can be one of the first people to lay your eyes, and hands, on Topshops's exclusive bridal collection, which features five limited-edition wedding dresses, 25 bridesmaid options and an assortment of matching shoes, accessories and lingerie. You know this high street favourite won't disappoint and their bridal collection most definitely puts fashion and style at the forefront.  We're talking 90s vibe slip dresses, cold shoulder and Bardot styles, floral patterns and blush pinks, there really is something there for all modern, fashion loving brides.


Not only that but there will also be a select group of Most Curious suppliers there to truly fire up your wedding imagination and provide you with all the inspiration you need to plan the wedding day of your dreams! And when we say your dreams we mean it, Most Curious is all about you and what you want, looking to fashion, media and modern culture for inspiration rather than the traditional wedding world.  We're all about bringing you the most creative and talented wedding suppliers out there, the ones who get that you want your wedding to be about you having fun, dreaming big and most importantly having a wedding that is a true expression and celebration of who you are as a couple.

Read on to find out how Topshop and our suppliers, Wolf & Rosie, Lizzie McQuade, Oh Squirrel, Rowan Blossom and Lucie Bennett Patissier can help you make your big day everything you want it to be!

Designer Katie has a background in fashion, a unique eye for detail, killer hand writing and a cheeky Northern sense of humour, which means her hand crafted pieces are pretty damn special and seriously stand out from the crowd. 


ROWAN BLOSSOM is a Notting Hill based florist whose style is inspired by her childhood in the Cotswold, echoing the beautiful wildness and intricacies found in nature. Rowan prides herself on her enthusiasim and attentiveness for each wedding she works on, encouraging a collaborative relationship between her and her clients, to ensure their floral dreams become a reality.



LUCIE BENNETT creates the most amazing bespoke cakes, desserts and wedding favours, always aspiring to make them taste as good as the look (and they look really good!). She loves to incorporate local and seasonal ingredients, and embraces both modern and traditional designs, tailoring them to the individual requirements of each bride and groom. An award wining patissier and chocolatier, Lucie's unique style won her the Young British Foodie Baking Award.

We think you'll love, By Kate Elizabeth a conscious wedding planner. This means planning your big day with sustainability in mind; keeping things natural, seasonal and local, whilst creating a wedding day experience as unique as you are. She also created this lovely shoot with another Norwich exhibitor Bracken + Twine florist, photography by, you’ve guessed it, a Norwich exhibitor! This time Megan Duffield.

How's about Eclectic Eccentricity too, they are a super mix of mystical gem stone vibes, but with cool simple, geometric edge, plus a little bit of whimsy and inspiration from the natural world. Basically, the dream, for modern, slightly boho bridal jewellery.

Fire Pit Camp are gonna be there! The ultimate laid back, beautiful country side, cool venue, with macrame ceremony arch, handmade in hazel wood, an uber warehouse to party in and have your sit down meal, party bus, camping, yoga and The Wren’s Nest is a super cosy, romantic glamping hazel bender tent for your honeymoon suite. AND they’ve just been approved for civil partnerships and marriages so you can actually get legally married there too!

What looks better than henna mendhi and a lace bridal gown, not much, we say – and brand spanking new to Most Curious is Henna Soul. Georgina, a Henna artist provides bridal henna using safe, natural, dark staining henna. I mean, our heads are swirling with the idea of a Henna Bar for the afternoon entertainment…! Unlike most henna artists, her style is heavily influenced by Moroccan and North African henna designs so it looks completely on point. Just sign us up for a session right now!
Super passionate about wedding florals, the Swaffham Florist sisters bring the WOW factor to your blooms. Based in Swaffham but they travel across East Anglia supplying wedding floral masterpieces. Are we obsessed with their big statement arrangements and their collaborations with The Little Lending Co. (who you can also find at the fair) and their arch?! Hell yes!

We think you’ll love House of Snow too, a super stylish but slightly quirky bridal boutique. Owner Harriet has a background in Costume Design for television and theater, and her passion, love of the beautiful textiles and shapes shines through out the boutique. They’ll be showcasing some of the finest and most fabulous designers in the industry, including Jenny Packham, Wtoo by Watters, Pronovias, Pronovias Atelier, Suzanne Neville and Justin Alexander.


So there it is, just a little taster of some of what you can expect this Sunday. Make sure you've got your tickets!
