The aim is to show what goods and services are available locally to help couples plan their special day.

Marzena Barclay, who runs Merchants House Cafe with her husband Ricky, said: “With so many great local businesses in the Kirkcaldy area, this event is the perfect opportunity to showcase the variety of wedding services that Kirkcaldy has to offer.

“It’s also about encouraging everyone to shop as locally as possible when planning their big day.

“From stalls from The Flower Ranger, Travel Your World, Koku Shi and many others including kilt hire, photographers, makeup artists and hairdressers – there will be plenty to see.

“Mirka Bridal will also be showcasing a variety of dresses from her collection, modeled by some of our wonderful staff here at the cafe. We feel so incredibly blessed to have such amazing companies around us that we can work together to support one another.”

Marzena explains where the idea for the fayre came from: “I spoke to my friend Mirka, who designs wedding dresses, and we had the idea of ​​doing something to support each other.

“Then we spoke to our friends/neighboring businesses that provide wedding products/services and they got involved as well.

“We want to show how many great family businesses we have here in Kirkcaldy.

“For example, brides-to-be don’t have to go to Edinburgh or Glasgow to find their dream dress because we have Mirka Bridal here. Cherry on Top makes wedding cakes and Lady Flutterbeeze makes unique wedding invitations.”

Earlier this year, Mirka Jankowska, owner of Mirka Bridal Couture on the city’s Commercial Street, launched a new brand of eco-friendly wedding dresses made from recycled materials.

Mirka said: “Marzena and I first talked about a styled bridal shoot in the café as it is set in such a beautiful historical location. We wanted to show local suppliers and collaborate on something – that’s where the idea came from.

“During the fayre, the models wear dresses from my new eco bridal collection, which has been a huge hit with new brides.”

She added, “Many couples are now looking for more local vendors so this event is the perfect place to find them.”

There are still two places left for companies that want to participate.
