There’s one event I really look forward to every year and that’s our London Mix and Mingle event for the UKAWP. This is a chance for wedding planners and suppliers to catch up and de-stress after a busy season.
This year was doubly exciting as Sandy and I (my business partner in the UKAWP) had a photo shoot capturing new images of us for the brand new website. After a bit of preening from Blush and Blow we were ready for Kate Nielen to make us 20 years younger (ok so that’s not really possible, but we can hope?!)
Sandy and I rarely have the chance to get together, so this made the day and evening extra fun. Come 6pm guests began to arrive at One Belgravia where they were greeted with champagne and canapés served by One Events. The grass bar made a striking feature (and yes it was real grass) and so did the floral swan. Music was created by the lovely Mighty Fine entertainment and also Peter Winwood.
Amongst the mingle and speech giving, I managed to get a fun caricature mirror of yours truly, ready for when I need to touch up my makeup on the go. I also loved my beautiful badge made by intricate creations, this is now hanging in my newly decorated office.
Mark from demo graffix created a canvas painting of a swan. Guests then signed the painting and I somehow managed to transport it home to Essex on the tube and train! And although I didn’t join in, guests loved the bubble man who created giant bubbles for them to be inside.
On the way home I indulged in treats from the amazing indulgence bar created by GC Couture – talk about feeling guilty but oh so worth it.
