Mix and Mingle Reminder
Today we want to remind you about our wedding planners Mix and Mingle nights on 19 and 20 October in various stunning locations across the UK. It’s a perfect opportunity for new and not so new planners to get together at the end of the season, compare notes and tips, let off steam and be the ones hosted at the party for a change! Our UKAWP members always love our social evenings but our events are open to non-members too and also to recent students of UKAWP who may not have launched their business but are on the way.
I’m going to tell you a little bit about some of the venues who have very kindly agreed to host us for these special evenings. At each venue you will have a chance to look around their space for weddings and meet their teams.
London on 20 October is hosted by BMA House
A hidden gem in gorgeous Bloomsbury, BMA House is a Grade II listed property situated in the heart of London. Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, BMA House is located on the site of Charles Dickens’ former home in Tavistock Square. It has been the home of the British Medical Association, the professional association for doctors, since 1925. The venue holds 4 unique rooms with a wedding licence, accommodating up to 200 people for the reception, an outdoor courtyard and garden for wedding photos and drinks, perfect for all seasons. Our Menus have been designed by our on-site Executive Head Chef from our award-winning caterers, Baxter Storey, and offer innovative menu design, premium ingredients and stunning presentation.
Cheshire on 20 October is hosted by Doubletree by Hilton Chester
Set on the outskirts of historic Chester and surrounded by 12 acres of landscaped gardens, the elegant DoubleTree by Hilton Chester hotel provides luxurious facilities for an outstanding wedding venue. This carefully restored 18th century manor house beautifully combines the past and the present, offering luxurious accommodation with contemporary styling and décor. The DoubleTree by Hilton Chester offers a variety of options for civil ceremonies and partnerships ranging from the enchanting Pagoda for intimate vows, the traditional Abbey suite, a spectacular converted stable barn and the modern Ballroom to cater for larger numbers.
Yorkshire on 19 October is hosted by Cedar Court Grand
The Cedar Court Grand Hotel & Spa is simply magical. Its sweeping staircases are made for sumptuous photography. Its beautiful architecture is guaranteed to impress.

We don’t do off the shelf, so your wedding will be one-of-a-kind; from a selection of menus crafted by our Head Chef to a choice of personalised stationery, designed with you in mind. From the red-carpet welcome when your guests arrive, right through to your elegantly-appointed bedroom at the end of the day, your wedding at The Grand is a truly unforgettable experience.
