About our Wedding Fairs
A Fair Affair wedding fairs are a platform for Darwin’s most creative wedding designers and suppliers, those that genuinely want to connect with couples looking for a more personal and unique wedding experience.
- appeal to couples wanting a custom and stylish wedding that is tailored to their lifestyle and personality
- love to collaborate with other designers and suppliers (there really is enough weddings for all of us!)
- offer a boutique product or service have amazing talents and skills in their chosen fields
- are committed to the Territory and all that it has to offer
Every year we come up with a ‘theme’ that all our vendors are encouraged to follow in their stall presence.
2 years ago, when we first started, we had ‘A Rural Affair’, this fair was held at the Fred’s Pass Show and we were appealing to all those couples searching for a little rural, rustic and vintage inspiration.
Our 2nd fair was called ‘An Urban Affair’ and this was at the sublime Six Tanks Brewery in the city. This fair was for all the lovers of modern, industrial or boho style.
This was a fun one – after all, who doesn’t love a wedding fair held in a bar?!
Our theme for 2018, is ‘An Island Affair’.
Think ocean, sand, tropical, Bali, Bahamas! Our goal with this fair is to not only produce a visually stunning experience for our guests, but to promote Darwin as the ultimate ‘Wedding Destination’. Every year we are seeing more and more couples flying into Darwin for their wedding due to; our fabulous and reliable dry season weather, the fact that our wedding season is the opposite of the Eastern states and that whatever your dream wedding location is, be it ocean views, lush tropical gardens or dreamy rural affairs, our Territory can supply them all.
An Island Affair 2018
Next year our wedding fair will be a 3 day event held at Club Tropical Resort which is located at the end of Lee Point Road, just minutes from the Airport, Casuarina and the Northern suburbs.
We chose Club Tropical as the location for ‘An Island Affair’ due to a couple of factors.
Firstly it’s an amazing venue that is continually trying to improve on itself.
Secondly, the owner and staff are incredibly passionate about their resort and excited about being a part of An Island Affair, and lastly it has a huge indoor stylish air conditioned space (with a bar), large enough for all of us and our visitors.
The timeline for the fair is listed below. We would love it if all our vendors attended the vendor dinner on the Friday night. An evening to share a dinner, few drinks and relax before our big weekend – we see this as an important time of networking and building relationships. Club Tropical have also arranged a special room rate for those wanting to stay the night.
Saturday morning we’ll begin with a leisurely breakfast and then start our stall set-ups, so that everything is as stress-free and un-rushed as possible. Then after a fun-filled evening, perhaps a swim and a few drinks around the pool, it’s off to bed. Sundays fair will start mid morning and run till about 3ish with an immediate pack up so that Club Tropical can open for dinner by 5pm.
