Cultural Twists At Brides Of Culture

Brides of Culture is available for any bride-to-be who lives and is planning to get married in the UK, providing them with any help we can to make their day a special one. There are currently many resources available to those planning a wedding in the UK, but very few for those planning one with a cultural twist.  Here today at The Wedding Vine, Brides of Culture share their story.

What is BoC?

Founded in 2009, Brides of Culture (BoC) aspires to be the largest multicultural focused Bridal Exhibition in the UK. BoC is also an interactive e-channel providing information on services, products and vendors for members of ethnic, on all aspects of planning a wedding.

This is the area where BoC is invaluable in providing solutions to regular issues and problems that are common in ethnic weddings, but may not be so common in mainstream ones.
London, UK - Brides of Culture (BoC) returns for the eighth instalment of its unique free multicultural Bridal Exhibition at the luxurious Hilton Canary Wharf.

With a prime location in the middle of one of the world’s busiest commercial districts that boasts excellent transport links to the rest of the city and beyond, it is the perfect venue for this season’s Brides of Culture exhibition.
Taking place on Saturday 28th September 2013, this free-to-attend bridal exhibition is expected to reach a capacity of over 1200 brides and grooms to be.

With a dedicated website that serves as an interactive e-channel for brides and grooms from all ethnic backgrounds, Brides of Culture goes beyond the usual, mainstream wedding exhibitions. With up to 50 exhibitors, Brides of Culture Autumn 2013 is expected to be bigger than ever before.

Who are behind this amazing company?

Abi Laditan and Kemi Osinloye, founded Brides of Culture in 2009 to provide useful tips, information and advice, as well as details of local and regional vendors to meet the wedding needs of a diverse mix of brides and grooms. In 2013 they were finalists in the Women4Africa Awards, shortlisted for Business Women of The Year Award.

Their passion and energy has led to the BoC exhibition becoming one of the most highly anticipated cross-cultural wedding exhibitions in London and the UK.  The last exhibition held in March 2013 drew in nearly 1000 attendees and over 45 major wedding suppliers.

When Abi initially started planning her wedding, she had the framework for an idea that will help her as well as other brides-to-be in similar circumstances make the planning process easier and also add an element of fun. We brainstormed about the best way in which to do this and decided to come up with a group on Facebook, a channel we are both regular users of, and after a few dud attempts of coming up with a name, Brides of Culture was created, and the rest, as they say, is history!

Abi Comments

"Whilst planning my dream day, I noticed that my needs were somewhat different from what the usual magazines and websites were offering, i.e. African caterers, native material designs and colours, as well as venues to fit the large crowd of well wishers, Nigerian celebrations typically attract. I also wanted a channel where I can converse with other Brides of Culture and share thoughts and ideas. This along with my general love for all things wedding related formed the idea!"

Attendees and vendors alike continues to encourage Abi and Kemi to strive to make the Brides of Culture Multicultural Bridal Exhibition grow from strength to strength, with September 2013 set to be the biggest and most successful yet.
