We must say, Crafts and Cocktails is one of our favourite events. It’s the perfect way for brides-to-be to chat with wedding industry professionals in a relaxed environment. On Wednesday 8th March, we were back at the stunning venue Whinstone View for Crafts and Cocktails.
Brides brought along their families and friends for another fantastic evening and were able to grab a cocktail and move around the room to learn how to create lovely little crafts from specialists. They were shown how to make tasty raw and healthy sweet treats, origami decorations which looked fab on the back of chairs, personalised photo frames to hold those special memories, and fabric corsages and accessories in a variety of colours. Our brides were able to take a little treat home to any gentlemen of a floral buttonhole and were taught how to create a traditional handfasting cord using gorgeous ribbons. While our parties were shown how to make beaded hair accessories, a lucky few managed to have their hair styled by hairdressers. We also brought out some of our favourite crafts from the past; tissue paper pom poms which create cute decorations, fabric badges to put onto little tote bags, and upcycled tin cans which everyone could get stuck into.
We must say a big thank you to all of you who joined us for the evening at Crafts and Cocktails; we hope you enjoyed the night as much as we did. Thank you to our professionals who brought along their crafts and taught our bridal parties; Flowerhouse, Tiaras and Toppers, Michele Plews The Independent Celebrant, Watkins-Wright Hairdressing, Stitch and Glitz, Infinite Glow and Michael Cartwright Photography. And also, thank you to the team at Whinstone View for putting together a fantastic range of cocktails and canapes and providing a stunning venue for us to be a part of for the evening.
