Creative Wedding Weekend Workshop
Fri, Jun 9, 2017, 7:00 PM – Sun, Jun 11, 2017, 12:30 PM BST
You don't need to be Martha Stewart to create amazing elements and make your wedding as special and unique as you are!
This residential workshop will give all brides-to-be wedding inspiration without the overwhelm.
Wedding fairs are great...but the crowds! The options! It's so hard to focus on a theme without being sideswiped continually with new ideas! It's exhausting isn't it?
My workshops are designed to offer you ideas and allows you time to experiement with your own take on those ideas. You'll be able to re-create what I show you; but with your own twist. I'll hold your hand through the creative process if that's not your area of expertise. I know how very overwhelming it can be - don't worry - I've got you covered!
I'll give you techniques, tricks and tips so that you can easily recreate the items I show you when you're back at home (or give instructions for someone else to)!
The week-end is a good mix of observing, creating and sharing.
It's kept to a maximum of 20 ladies so you'll get individual support and tuition, whatever your experience or questions. They are residential so that you can relax into each session and we can be much more fluid with timings. If we're all having a great time in a session, why end it!
The week-end is fun packed and you are encouraged to attend each session. There is down-time too so you can relax and unwind.
I recommend that you arrive by 6pm on Friday to give you time to check-in and get sorted before the week-end begins.
Friday Night, 7.00pm - 9.00pm
Cocktails and Canapes
You'll get to taste 5 different cocktails (plus a non-alcoholic one) with complimentary canapes that you might consider for your own reception. I'll show you how each is made and give you recipe cards to take away.
It's a great way to settle into the week-end!
I'll also share with you some amazing details that will WOW your guests (with very little additional cost or effort). You want your wedding to be memorable and I'll help you achieve that!
(if you'd like to have more food or drinks after this session, you'll be able to in the hotel or local area, at your own expense).
Saturday Morning, 10.00am - 12.30pm
Need to create maximum impact with minimal cost and effort? I'll show you how! You'll get a chance to make gorgeous decorations (great for weddings AND birthday parties) and I'll give you tips on how to make the most of a reception space that needs help!
LIGHT LUNCH & FREE TIME
Saturday Afternoon, 2.30pm - 5.00pm
Worried about missing out on some of your day (you can't be everywhere at once!) or capturing precious moments to last a lifetime (other than photographs)? I have so many ideas that allow you to capture the emotion of the day in a creative and interesting way.
Saturday Evening, 7.30pm - 9.00pm
Drinks & Dinner and Special Surprise that Brides-to-Be will LOVE!
A three course dinner is included, as are all drinks with dinner. Drinks before or after dinner are not included in your ticket price.
Sunday Morning, 10.00am-12.30pm
Gifts for Guests
As many brides will tell you, this is a part of the wedding budget that gets very out of control very quickly! And... so many guests don't even take their gifts home or put them in a drawer and forget about them. This session will show you ways to make your budget stretch with meaningful and inspired gifts that make your wedding as unforgettable to your guests as it is to you!
LIGHT LUNCH & DEPARTURE
You are able to depart stright after the last session or stay for a light lunch before you hit the road!
I really hope that if you're a bride-to-be and are feeling a little overwhelmed, you'll come and join me and other soon-to-be-brides and allow yourself time to think through your ideas in a relaxing space, with help and inspiration when you need it!
What to bring:
If you have a wedding vision (or Pinterst) board, samples, swatches, ideas etc., bring them along to inspire you, share and talk about (if you want to)
You might (will, if it goes to plan) have a few pieces to take away with you. I'll provide suitable protective wrapping but make sure you're able to carry them home (in a wheely suitcase or car)
Bringing a camera (either on your phone or otherwise) will allow you to capture ideas that you, I or others might create. Always ask permission first of course!
What to wear:
The entire weekend is a jeans and comfy shoes affair. Bring along a wardrobe that you're comfortable in.
What's not included:
In order to ensure that the week-end is the best possible value for everyone, I've included all accomodation, meals and refreshments within the programme. Any snacks or drinks taken in free time, either in the hotel or outside are at your own expense. This includes services such as room service, laundry, spa treatments etc.
You are not obliged to attend sessions but unfortunately I cannot give discounts for any unattended sessions or nights not spent in the hotel. In line with the Great Creative Workshops ethos and brand, these workshops are kept intimate and affordable and the only way I'm able to provide that is by delivering one programme and one price for everyone. If you'd like a specific workshop, let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate you at another time.
