Cakes By BabyBelles exhibited at the Hanbury Manor wedding fair for the first time ever last Sunday. I should add that it was also the first time ever exhibiting at any wedding fair and I have to say it was a really exciting experience!!

Having never been to a wedding fair as a wedding cake exhibitor, I was completely clueless about what I was doing! I felt a bit overwhelmed in deciding how to have a wonderful stand at the wedding fair, which would attract lots of brides and grooms in and around Hertfordshire. How do I make my table stand out? How do I get people to talk to me? A lot of questions ran through my adventurous mind!
I did a lot of research online and I made sure I was well prepared with enough marketing materials, vibrant cakes and yummy cake samples. I probably baked enough cake the night before to feed the all of Hertfordshire’s brides and grooms.

We had 4 flavours available to taste, which were cookies & cream, vanilla, salted caramel (everyone went crazy for this) and yummy chocolate. I loved receiving great feedback on the softness and moistness of our bespoke wedding cakes.

There were 3 different rooms and Cakes By BabyBelles was situated in the Assembly hall which in my opinion was the best room by far. The room was arranged in a way that it included a wide range of wedding suppliers, from florists to photographers, a photo booth, suit hire and even a live pianist was also in attendance. There was a lot to see, to say the least. Kudos to the team at Main Event Wedding shows and Marriot Hanbury Manor for executing such a well-coordinated event.

The event kicked off at around 11 am and things started to get busy quite quickly. People were coming in at intervals though so it wasn’t too bad for us exhibitors. The fair had such a warm feeling to it. The other exhibitors were very friendly and I found it very insightful talking to them about their past wedding fair experiences. Being a newbie myself, I was obviously all ears!

At one stage during the event, however, I wanted to stroll around the different tables and look at the pretty stuff rather than talk to potential customers about our bespoke wedding cakes and celebration cakes!

I was very lucky that I had a friend and my hubby who came to support me because, at various times, we were inundated with couples who wanted to speak with us about their luxury wedding cake. This was very exciting because it meant that half the job was done.

I also found myself getting excited for every bride-to-be that I met and talked to at the fair. Having been a bride-to-be myself, I could totally relate to all the stress and anxiety brought on by this long preparation for that most anticipated “walk up the aisle.” But I’m sure, it will all be worth it in the end. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my first wedding fair. I loved displaying my wedding cakes, lots of people tasting my cakes and bespoke cupcakes and receiving amazing feedback as well as talking to brides and grooms-to-be about how Cakes By BabyBelles could help their wedding day become extra special.​​​​​​​
