The 2015 London Mix & Mingle Event

It was fantastic to see such an amazing turnout for the UKAWP London Mix and Mingle last Wednesday. Thank you so much for joining us to celebrate the end of the 2015 wedding season.

Over 120 wedding planners and wedding industry experts ‘mixed and mingled’ with us for a night of food, drinks, fun and chat!

We would like to thank everyone who participated and made the night a success. Thank you to Jessica Barrie and Altitude London, our hosts for the evening, who provided the cocktails, drinks and canapes and took amazing care of all of us. So many of the participants have commented on how wonderful the venue is and how breathtaking the 360 degree view of the London skyline is.


Blue Sky Flowers dressed the venue with a very modern combination of colours and flowers, plums and purples coupled with hot pink and golds. Stunning!


One of the hot hits of the evening were the badges, provided by Cutture  – possibly the most amazing badges we could ever wish for!


GC Couture and their partners Goose and Berry prepared a stunningly creative and incredibly tasty dessert buffet and gorgeous cakes. Our personal favourites were the lemon posset, the blackberry crème brulee, the red velvet cake and the mint chocolate cake.


It was fantastic to see a giant flower wall close up, designed by the lovely ladies from Paper Flower Wedding. Several guests had a “red carpet” moment in front of it.


Another popular background for pictures were the giant #UKAWP light up letters provided by Mighty Fine Entertainment.


Entertainment was provided by The Undercover Monkeys, Timeless Acoustic,  a DJ set from Mighty Fine Entertainment and the magician Darren McQuade.


We had a lot of fun in the photo booth from Boutique Booths, here are a few of our favourites, but you can see all of them here. Enjoy!


Thank you to lovely Kate from Kate Nielen Photography for capturing the evening so beautifully and to Mark from Hang the Moon for the video of the Mix and Mingle which is coming soon.

At the end of the evening our guests were treated to a great goody bag with presents from:

Artisan du Chocolat London, Mindful Senses, Abigail Warner, GC Couture and their partners Goose and Berry,  and Altitude London, Hush Heath Estate and Winery and Absolutely Wedding Magazine.

And of course as everyone left at the end of the night, they could take home a bag of M&M’s (see what we did there?) for the journey home.
