Isaacs Wedding Fayre

Wedding Fayre – Sunday 27 October, 10:00am – 3:00pm

Making the most from Wedding Fayres – Your Isaacs Weddings Guide

There’s so much to take in when you start to plan your wedding day and attending a Wedding Fayre can be a great way of finding inspiration and making connections. Here, at Isaacs, we know that these events can be invaluable, so we run our own Wedding Fayres twice a year.

With our next event – at Isaacs on the Quay and Venue 77 – fast approaching on Sunday 27 October, our team of coordinators share some top tips on making the most from Wedding Fayres.

  1. Make a plan

With a host of suppliers showcasing everything from favours and flowers to fruit cakes all ready to show you how they’ll make your day special, it can be a good idea to make a list of exactly which elements you’d like to focus on. That’s not to say that our Isaacs Wedding Coordinators can’t help you with the rest later down the line – we’re a treasure trove of wedding knowledge!

  1. Spend time with our Wedding Coordinators

The team of coordinators here at Isaacs Weddings is always here to help and the Wedding Fayre is your perfect opportunity to grab us to find out more about what makes weddings at Isaacs on the Quay or Venue 77 so beautiful.

We’ll be on hand to help you at the Fayre and to guide you through the array of choice on offer. We’ve also popped a handy wedding planning checklist into our goodie bags.

  1. Remember to take in our venues, as well as the Fayre

Weddings at Isaacs are so much more than first meets the eye. Whether you choose to have your special day with us at Isaacs on the Quay or at Venue 77, make sure to check out the Merchant House, where you could stay with us for your wedding weekend, and take time to imagine how beautiful the Ipswich Waterfront for your wedding backdrop.

  1. Snap up your inspiration

You’ll be blown away by the creativity of our suppliers and the beautiful surroundings at our Wedding Fayre, but you need to make sure you take away all the inspiration you need. So, bring your smart phone or your camera and get snapping. That way you’ll also be able to share what you’ve taken from our event with everyone else involved in planning your special day.

  1. Grab your goody bag

If you haven’t had enough inspiration at the Fayre (we’re sure you’ll have had lots!), we put together a free goody bag for you to take away, fully loaded with treats, ideas and contacts to help you with your planning right up to your big day.

  1. Have fun

Perhaps most important of all, we want you to enjoy your experience at the Isaacs Wedding Fayre. So have fun and, if you have the time, why not combine it with lunch with us while you’re here.

Why choose a winter wedding with Isaacs on the Quay

Crisp bright daylight and twinkling lights in the early evening…winter weddings can be truly spectacular and, at Isaacs on the Quay, the colder months bring a special dimension to your big day. Winter weddings can also represent great value for money and, for these reasons among many, they’re becoming more and more popular.

While summer is still the favourite season for couples getting married, a winter wedding offers a beautiful backdrop, too. That’s especially true of weddings at Isaacs on the Quay, where the carefully restored Grade I and II* listed buildings offer a unique indoor setting that is complemented perfectly by their stunning Ipswich Waterfront surroundings.

Whether you want the big day to have a festive, Christmas feel, or if you dream of a white-winter wedding, the team at Isaacs on the Quay are on hand to bring your ideas into reality.


A touch of romance
With darkness falling earlier in the winter time, your evening guests will be treated to a real wonderland on the Ipswich Waterfront, with fairy lights bobbing on the boats in the quay and along the quayside, too.

At Isaacs we dress up your wedding venue to bring real atmosphere, adding extra romance to your occasion.

White winter weddings
It would be an amazing stroke of luck to have snow on your winter wedding day, but a touch of frost on the Ipswich Waterfront, as well as some stunning sunsets, set the scene for some amazing photos.

Remember, in winter it’s a good idea to book your wedding ceremony fairly early in the day, so you make use of the daylight for photos, before your evening guests arrive.

Deck the halls for a festive scene
For weddings during the festive season, Isaacs delivers an even more magical backdrop, decorated with Christmas trees and lights for extra sparkle.

The Christmas holidays also mean that more of your guests may already have time booked off, giving them more opportunity to attend and making a mid-week wedding even better.

Whatever the weather
Of course, everyone prefers fair weather for their wedding day but, come rain or shine, Isaacs offers a great setting for your marriage ceremony, for your celebrations and for your photos too.

Our wedding coordinators create the perfect indoor wedding, so you don’t need to worry about the weather.

Making more of your wedding
Winer weddings represent great value for money, and availability is often easier to find, too. At Isaacs on the Quay, you can take advantage of a range of great, hassle-free packages. Prices start from just £4,995, including use of our Ceremony Room and Reception Areas, as well as an overnight stay in the Merchant House.

Alternatively, you can work with our wedding coordinators to create a wedding package that’s tailored especially to you. Whichever route you choose, you’ll have access to your own wedding coordinator, who will assist with your wedding planning – making it the perfect day.
