Good folk of Melbourne, you may have heard on the grapevine that One Fine Day will be taking Victoria by storm again later this month! For those of you who missed the first Melbourne event last year, or weren’t yet planning a wedding, allow us to take a moment to enlighten you.

One Fine Day is a bridal fair with a true creative heart and the collective efforts of Sydney-based photographer Nadean of  Photography by Nadean, Marrissa of From The Owl fame and (amazing) event stylist Jessica of Oscar & Ruby.

We know, we know! Bridal fairs are typically home to puffy dresses, cheesy photographers and mass-produced everything – but not this event, no sirree! One Fine Day strives to create a casual, fun and stress-free space positively dripping with creativity, where couples looking to tie the knot can come and meet some wonderfully creative vendors offering everything from custom-designed invitations to friendly services such as photography and event styling. And, of course, we’ll be there… The Hello May blog and directory is proud to be an official sponsor of the whole shebang!

This year it’s both a night market AND a day market so on Friday May 23, at 6pm on the dot, the good folk of Bursaria and The Abbotsford Convent will be  opening their doors to a literal wonderland for brides and grooms to-be looking for something a little unique, and then we’ll be doing it all again on Saturday morning!

These photos, created by a handful of talented One Fine Day vendors are just a sample of the kind of awesomeness one can expect to find at One Fine Day this May.  You’ll also meet Hello May faves Georgeous Occasions, Wedding Day PA, Tillee Music, The White Tree, Girl In The Green ScarfCharis White Celebrant, Good Grace & Humour, Lovely Day Pictures and Santiago Sunbird.

To make sure you don’t miss out we have ten double passes to give away to a handful of lucky readers! How does one go about winning such a prize? Simply leave your comment on today’s post before midnight tonight (Sydney time, Thursday May 1). Then head on over to our Facebook page and give us an enthusiastic thumbs up. Ten winners will be drawn at random and contacted tomorrow! For additional karmic brownie points, One Fine Day would love you to like their Facebook page too.

Now you have your trip to Melbourne’s best bridal fair sorted, head on over to our online store and stock up on issues one, three and four of Hello May magazine for inspiration if you haven’t already! Sorry issue two is sold out but postage is FREE!
