Western Australian brides-to-be now have the chance to make their wedding a unique event that stands out from the crowd thanks to first ever Wedding Upmarket, showcasing the best of the state’s wedding wares.
The brains (and operational legs) behind Wedding Upmarket is Justine Barsley, who couldn’t find Perth’s best artists and designers she’d heard so much about, and set up the iconic Perth Upmarket three years ago where 50,000 punters now flock every year for the best of Perth’s designer wares at the quarterly event.
“Perth Upmarket customers started begging us for high quality wedding products as they tried to organise a wedding or event and were finding it increasingly hard to stand out from the crowd and create a truly unique affair that wasn’t your stock-standard, off the shelf number,” Justine said.
With well over 100,000 weddings each year across Australia1, and around 13,000 of these happening in WA alone, Justine wasn’t surprised there was the need for quality, handcrafted, designer elements when planning for the big day.
“There are around 250 weddings every week in WA, and brides nowadays are really looking to set themselves apart from the next wedding – looking for something personalised, bespoke and memorable – an event that guests are still talking about years later,” Justine said.
Wedding Upmarket is a one-day, one-stop-shop showcasing the best of what Perth has to offer by way of wedding products including invitations and paper product, decorations and props, bonbonniere, flowers, photography, gourmets, jewellery, stylists, couture and so much more.
“Not only will customers be able to come and buy or order from our handpicked, best of the best designers, they will also be able to gain inspiration, purchase DIY kits and source unique and inspirational touches for the all-important day.”
“Don’t think wedding expo or wedding fair, Wedding Upmarket will be a top-notch event no savvy bride should miss.” Justine said.
Saturday, 13 August 2011 from 10am to 4pm Mosman’s Restaurant, 15 Johnson Parade, Mosman Park.
Tickets are $20 prepaid through www.perthupmarket.com.au or $25 at the door.
