The Leicester Wedding Club Summer Garden Party!

On Sunday I hosted the second Leicester Wedding Club networking event.
The event took place at Shearsby Bath, a wedding venue set in the beautiful Leicestershire countryside.

Whilst the theme of the event was a Summer Garden Party the weather let us down, so it would have been better named an Autumnal Marquee Party! Despite the dreary weather 35 lovely people came along for an afternoon of gossip, giggles, and cupcakes with some photobooth fun thrown in!

Before the event I spent the morning creating these pretty name tags for the guests – much prettier than a plastic name tag, don’t you think?

I had such a lovely afternoon, with lots of lovely, interesting and fun people in attendance, and was pleased to see some new faces as well as some familiar ones too!


It was fab to catch up with some previous attendees such as Adam Thomas and his lovely wife Sarah, the super awesome Alison from Can De Cween Cupcakery (supplier of delicious cupcake treats on the day!) Nikki from Tickled Pink Stationery (fresh from her holidays with an amazing tan!) fellow dog lover Hannah from Hand Maid Events, Nicola from Eve Lily Wedding & Event Styling, Sarah from Sarah Salotti Photography, Sam from Sam Johnson Photography, Dan from Digital Dream Productions, Sheelagh Powell make up (who i didn’t get a chance to speak to but spotted looking gorgeous in a fabulous hat!) and of course our wonderful photographer for the day, Darren Cresswell, as well as so many others!!

It was great to meet some new people too, such as Elizabeth from Elizabeth Hall Wedding Planning, Beth from Bettie Lottie Make up (make sure you check out her website, it’s gorgeous!), Emma from Emma Fay Make up and the lovely ladies from Coco Angels.

I had a fab chat with wedding club newcomer Matt from Matt Glover Photography, who has some lovely images that I hope to feature on the blog very soon.

The day was punctuated by trips to the photobooth set up by Darren Cresswell photography, complete with summery vintage fabric to complement the theme.
