Recently the HostCo team – Anita, Tran, Louisa and Kirsten, visited the One Fine Day wedding fair in Sydney. We, of course, were excited and ready to absorb all the creative wedding inspiration we possibly could and bring it back to our stunning, heritage venues based at the University of Sydney.
Our first stall was the Jacob’s Creek stand, conveniently located just passed the entrance where we were greeted with a complimentary (10am!) glass of champagne. Here we planned our adventure through what is arguably the best wedding fair in Sydney for couples who want something outside the box.
Instantly we noticed just how uber-talented and creative the OFD vendors were, each with their own personal style and flair. We loved strolling through the relaxed and friendly vibe of the place, chatting to each and every stallholder about their product and how they work with couples to bring their love story to life. For us as a heritage venue, it’s all about the romance – it’s not every day you meet the love of your life so it’s important for HostCo to work with people who get this and who also love what they do.
OFD had everything a couple needs for inspiration for their special day, from the latest bridal fashions in a runway show to photographers, stylists, makeup artists, live music and even tailor made suits for the Groom and his best men. Although we had numerous favourite parts of the day, we loved the refreshing coconuts served up by Poolside Café, the numerous selfies taken with Social Playground and seeing the latest trends in styling – it’s completely about luscious floristry and plenty of it.
We’ve definitely been hit hard by the OFD bug so we have decided to exhibit there this September and show off our historical HostCo venues to the creative couples of Sydney.
WE CAN’T WAIT!
