The Fairy Tale Fair Brighton – 24th May 2015

This Bank Holiday weekend I had the pleasure of photographing my third Fairy Tale Fair Brighton. Held at the lovely Open Market, 40 stall-holders gathered to sell their makes and arts to a crowd of hungry buyers and just like the previous 2 that I have attended, it was a huge success of a day.

Organiser Claire Montgomery did another fantastic job of pulling the event together and had worked her socks of promoting the fair in local press and through advertising to the good people of Brighton & Hove. Her hard work paid off as foot fall was consistently good throughout the day, further helped by the fine weather and other local events which were being held as part of the Brighton Fringe festival.

I saw a few familiar faces including Kirk’s Carvings, Lucy Alice Designs, Shani’s Showroom, Mini Patisserie and the Handmade Lighting Company which was super and it was great to catch up with fellow small local business owners. In addition there were lots of new faces and I thoroughly enjoyed looking at everyones crafts and making new connections.

As part of my role at the fair, I photograph everyone’s table and always try and get a ‘mug shot’ of the stall-holder with their goodies – No-one ever enjoys this part so I try and make it as quick and painless as possible, and I’d really like to say a huge thank you for their co-operation.

In addition to ‘stalls’ there was a pop-up nail bar, face painting and musical entertainment partway through the day. Plenty to keep visitors of all ages entertained!

As well as photographing the fair, Candy Floss & Bow Ties Photography had our own table which was kindly manned by Ash. We sold some of our Brighton prints and we got to show lots of kind passers by our work and shout about our wedding and portrait services.

As always, I was honoured to be part of the festivities and am already looking forward to the next one!
