Civil Partnership Week – Part 1 – Sheffield Pride ‘Rainbow Weddings tent’

As I’m sure many of you are aware I am organising this years Sheffield Pride Civil Partnership Tent. I was approached what seems like a life time ago now to to help set up organise what has now been called the Irwin Mitchell Rainbow Weddings Tent

This year’s event will be held on Saturday 26th June in EndcliffePark, Sheffield from 1pm to 7pm with free entry.
For that reason I thought that I would run a week long special on Civil Partnerships, sharing with you some great Real Weddings, and also some great supplier details.

So more about Saturdays Event. My main aim for the event was NOT to have it as any normal Wedding Fair. my aim has been to make it as interactive, fun and informative as possible, not your normal run of the mill Wedding fair, more of an event in it’s own right.

It’s fair to say that planning this event has taken a huge amount of time and effort so I really, really hope it’s a big success. We have some excellent suppliers exhibiting as well as some great entertainment!  AND an actual wedding tacking place……..which I’m super excited about!!!

Sheffield Pride is one of Yorkshire’s biggest annual live music events aimed at the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities. Last year’s event was a huge success which was enjoyed by over 5500 members of Sheffield’s LGBT community.  The Irwin Mitchell Rainbow Wedding Tent –  is bigger and better than ever. The tent will reflect the LGBT communities and our aim is to make it as informative and fun as possible

So What can you Expect from the day?

  • We have a number of wedding suppliers exhibiting, offering demonstrations of their products and services.
  • Goodie bags to give out filled with Civil Partnership information and magazines.
  • Live entertainment in the form of Swing Singer Chris Heathcote, Dancing from Salwa Belly Dancers, DJing from Sheffield’s finest Rich Williams. Plus a Sheffield exclusive, Big Ang presents Darren Brookes singing brand new track ‘Till the sunrise’
  • A Photo Booth area for you to dress up and have your picture taken.
  •  Make-up and hair demonstrations from Professional make-up artist Catherine Elizabeth
  • A bridal fashion show showcasing all the latest wedding outfits from Mirage Couture and flowers from Orchis
