What we’re ALL about
I’m Kelly owner of Belle’s Events and Sussex Love Bug, mum to two beautiful children and wife to Joss. I love blogging, living by the seaside, my camper van, 1950’s and 1960’s vehicles, pots and crockery, retro toys, running, festivals, boot sales, coffee, big sun glasses and the smell of burning wood. I run Belle’s Events from my home in Shoreham-By-Sea, a few stops on the train from Brighton. My about me page is coming soon!
Fairs - Belles Event’s run unique and inspiring wedding fairs, vintage and retro events & makers boutique markets across Sussex. We strive to create an atmosphere of excitement, intrigue and fun. Belle’s Events was born out of suffering an extreme allergic reaction to average, boring & stuffy fairs full of chair covers and chocolate fountains. Now in it’s second year Belle’s Events is creating a stir in the Vintage, Retro, Reloved and Makers scene too.
Venue Promotion – Do you have a venue and are looking for a way to attract couples that like something a bit different? Don’t have enough time to run the wedding side of things but can’t afford a full time co-ordinator? Fancy having a promotional fair? Let me know, I can help and it won’t cost you a lot.
Blogging has recently become a major part of what I love to do. Any of Belle’s Events exhibitors are welcome to send me blog ideas and write posts about successes they’ve had through investing their precious time and money exhibiting with us. I endeavour to offer advise to brides and grooms who love something a bit different, to create a window in to my life, offer reviews of quirky places to stay, unique wedding venues, truly useful wedding tips, advise on running a small business, retro finds and anything that has caught my eye or got my heart beating. You will also find a weekly feature from our Sophie in the form of ‘Sophie’s Choice’.

Our ACE Wedding Fairs
Our wedding fairs are not your average wedding fairs, after all, Belle’s Events was born out of an allergic reaction to chocolate fountains, chair covers and Robbie Williams cover acts.
Here at Belle’s Events HQ we what to help couples like we once were find the most exciting, creative, unique and quirky wedding suppliers in the UK and we think we’re doing a pretty good job. We started out with Belle’s Vintage Wedding Fair back in 2011 but more recently we were approached by some really unusual businesses wanting to exhibit, so, we decided they should have their very own platform, The Quirky Boutique Wedding Fair!
Now everyone that we adore can be with us and shine under the BIG BELLE’S EVENTS SUN!
Vintage & Reloved Fairs
We love nothing more than good old rummage here at Belle’s Events HQ. Supporting small businesses is what we thrive on and we know a lot that do what they do so very well. With the abundance of up-cylcers, re-cyclers and re-lovers we have recently changed the name of our fairs to suit the vibe! You will find a treasure trove of traders and makers at these events along with tea rooms, entertainment and the odd pop up salon to boot.
“I love everything Belle’s Events stand for. The stand against the dull and the revival of all that’s creative and quirky. Belle’s Events bring together the wedding/party planner, the punter and the industry professionals full of creative ideas to share and I’ve been lucky to be involved and showcase my jazz and swing singing style at their fairs, parties and networking events. I can’t thank you enough for introducing me. Thanks Kelly.” Hannah Summers
“The Quirky Boutique was my first time ever exhibiting and I totally loved it! Everyone involved was so lovely and it was great to be involved in such a popular fair to network with other business and not only that but to meet a ton of brides and grooms to be. It not only helped my business grow but also my confidence in it. Roll on the next event! Hannah of Me Oh My
“We’ve had SOOO many bookings from our last fair with you that we’ve lost count!” Amanda and Darren, Doris Loves
