Well that was fun! If not a little calorific..
Let’s back up a little.
I was asked to be the official photographer for the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners North West networking event at new wedding venue Dorfold Hall. At the same time, we would be doing a styled bridal shoot showing the floristry skills of Red Floral. A busy day? You bet…
You can see more about the bridal shoot here.
We started off with some photos of the new wedding venue – Dorfold Hall – which is just stunning! You should definitely check it out. There’s going to be a permanent marquee in the gardens and Candice, who will be running it, is so helpful. Here’s a few photos of it:
So I mentioned calorific … and that brings me to the best bit … check out the amazing sweet and savory treats that we enjoyed during the evening! All three suppliers were superb and brought their best to generously share around.
All were inundated with hungry (and in my case slightly greedy) visitors who eagerly tasted and sampled. The artistic and culinary talents on show were superb. Thank you all!
And it wasn’t just food that we sampled … we only had drinks with dry ice! The guys brought plenty to ensure there were superb theatrics to delight – and in my case, commit to memory card.
I’ve never seen drinks like these before and brides & grooms – trust me – you DO want this at your wedding!
What else was going on? Well, there was a wedding cake. This was pretty amazing. Look at the detailing … that was all piped by hand! How is that even possible! Some people are just really talented I guess.
I’m told that this style of cake making is having a resurgence, so it’s likely I will be photographing it at your wedding pretty soon.
And how did all of this come to be you might ask? Well, hero wedding planners Debbie, Andrea and Helens from Better Together Weddings, Fabulous Day and Helen Eriksen, organised the whole event from scratch!
I think they should take up event planning professionally! Haha!
They are all members of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners and take an active interest in the North of England.
The rest of the night was chatting, laughing, drinking (non alcoholic) cocktails, eating, eating some more, introducing yourself in more and more imaginative ways and generally spending time with a group of people who really know…
How Great It Is To Work In Weddings!
Thank you to everyone involved! A few more photos of the evening to tell the story of the evening because, after all, that’s my job.
