Vendors and suppliers were stationed over two main venues, Fig Tree Restaurant and Byron View Farm. Another eleven venues threw their doors open to guests for viewings, many of which had been styled to perfection by The Wedding Shed to give the feel of a perfectly planned wedding taking place.

For couples in love with the idea of a Byron wedding, this annual event has long been a must on the list. Providing an exciting opportunity to explore the vast possibilities when planning your wedding, we loved seeing the diversity on offer at the 2017 instalment of creative wedding inspo.
