AN INTIMATE WEDDING PARTY

A WEDDING AFTER-PARTY: We had the pleasure of organising a wedding after-party for some lovely and very fun Norwegian clients!

CLIENT: Private

EVENT: Wedding Party

LOCATION: Venue in Clerkenwell

DATE: 18th May 2013

BRIEF: Find a location that gave privacy to the group, offered an intimate and interesting feel. Nothing corporate. Must be in walking distance of Exmouth Market. Then create a fun party for the wedding guests with great drinks, food and dancing.

GUESTS: 90 for drinks, snacks and dancing. (Guests had a sit down dinner before they arrived to the party)

WHAT WE DID: Found and booked the venue, suggested and booked catering (Big Apple Hot Dogs) for the midnight snack, operated the bar and created the drinks list, suggested and booked the sound system and DJ’s, dressed the venue.

VENUE: We sourced and booked a quirky creative space in Farringdon/ Clerkenwell. It offered an intimate feel, unusual with its shape and eclectic furniture. This venue allowed us to continue the event till 3am, which is what the client very much wanted.

CATERING

DRINKS: We focused on local beers such as Camden Pale Ale to give the guests something very ‘London’ and French wines (therefore with a smaller carbon footprint than New World). We also offered 3 bespoke cocktails that we created with our consultant mixologist – A Peach and Rose Water Bellini, A Cloudy Apple with Elderflower Martini and An Aperol Spritz with Rhubarb Spritz: Offering guests 3 very different tasting cocktails but keeping it feeling a little artisanal English with the use of the floral and fruity elements.

FOOD: We suggested a street food option that would work with the budget and idea of a ‘power snack’, after-all they had already had a 3 course dinner just an hour or two prior to the party. Big Apple Hot Dogs worked really well as it was fun, simple and satisfied all the party people while still delivery great quality. With the added bonus –  the guests from abroad all had a chance to try one of London’s top voted Hot Dogs!

STYLING: The styling was simple as the venue was interesting to start with. We used lighting, candles and some handmade touches such as; handwritten menus on handmade paper, ribbons, graffiti’d mirrors in the bathrooms…..

ENTERTAINMENT: The clients requested a DJ and we suggested our wonderful friends The Loose Cannons again! We know, they know – how to fill a dance floor – and they sure did…

This was a delightful project to work on. Weddings are such a pleasure to be involved in. Congratulations to the happy couple again!
