One Fine Day Sydney recap

Happiness for me is sharing with others what I love. Last weekend I got to do just that at the One Fine Day Sydney wedding fair held at Australian Technology Park.

My stall was designed to reflect what my bridal work is all about. Partnering with brides in the lead up to their wedding as well as being there on the day itself to get them feeling beautiful and happy… and having fun along the way!

In addition to meeting lovely engaged couples and future brides, I also got a chance to say hello to my neighbours.

The fair had a wonderfully relaxed yet exciting buzz about it. Couples could enjoy treats created by ARIA catering in the VIP area, peruse the bridesmaid corner, or even enjoy a little pampering with a champagne at the nail bar.
