Save the Date! There’s an exciting and exclusive pop up coming to East London, and it falls over a good weekend to visit the capital if you’ve got a wedding to plan. This pop up, ‘The Aussie Bridal Salon’, will run from Thursday 2nd – Sunday 5th March in the Town Hall Hotel in Bethnal Green. In addition, the coveted Chosen Wedding Fair is the 5th March, and there’s also The London Bridal Show on the same weekend. Even though the latter is a trade only exhibition for buyers, there’s guaranteed to be a bridal buzz around the city. A great opportunity for a hen party or weekend away with your mum amid your planning journey.
‘The Aussie Bridal Salon’ will be hosted in the Town Hall Hotel by East London planners Knot & Pop, by appointment only. They will showcase exclusive Australian bridal designers not readily available in the UK and have built a super cool bridal boutique around them for the duration of the event. Tickets are £75 for a party of four, but this includes a VIP bridal experience, detailed below.
Designers will include Bo & Luca, Cathleen Jia and Nevenka, all known for their directional and modern design – the perfect match for the Town Hall Hotel. Knot & Pop have created this pop up salon to allow UK brides the chance to shop these never-before-stocked labels, and have included a luxury wedding shop within the hotel. Expect the best of candles, loungewear, scents, ‘maids gifts, jewellery, and a few other inspiring bits and pieces.

The super stylish Town Hall Hotel made the shortlist of venues for my own wedding due to its famed deco architecture
and design-led interiors (and close proximity to my house), and I am
sure this bridal pop up will be a marriage made in hipster heaven due
the venue’s connection to its sister hotel in Sydney, and the modern
approach to weddings conveyed by Knot & Pop.
stunning setting to welcome these incredible designers
to the UK, and to give British brides something different for their
ultimate dress quest experience, if you ask me.
