Good Morning my lovely! How was your weekend? Mine has been pretty standard but with a few enchanted extras. On Saturday lunchtime, I went to my usual car boot. However, for a lovely change this weekend, Brad wasn’t working, so he joined me and we strolled around picking up some bargains in the sunshine which was a really nice change.
I had a last minute photo booth booking on Saturday evening in Gloucester, so I wanted to get a few things sorted for that. Namely some new storage (with wheels) for the photo booth kit. Since it is completely bespoke made, it’s hard to find the best transportation for it, but I grabbed some large holdall bags with wheels which reduces the lifting from the car to the venue each week. Until I meet some gravel or steps, then I’m probably screwed!
I left about 7pm to head off on the road to find my way to Gloucester and the venue for the evening’s party, when I arrived to be greeted by the most amazing view over the country as I drove down the longest flag lined drive way up to the most amazing house and barn which was lit with the most amount of festoon lights around it. There was a buzz of 20 odd year olds enjoying a few drinks in the courtyard as I was directed to the back entrance of the barn. I was shown to where I was to set up the photo booth, which since was only booked the day before, was squeezed in to a curtained off corridor next to the loos – so glam!
It wasn’t until I poked my head around the corner to see the full epic-ness of the party styling. My mouth literally dropped to the floor when I saw the barn. It had been transformed beautifully by Wesley House Events in to a magical space. There were jars of tea lights everywhere, I mean everywhere, I’ve never seen so many tea lights in one room. The tables were beautifully decorated and there was even large toad stalls scattered around the room, I felt like I’d stepped in to an enchanted forest. It was the most amazing party I have ever seen and I want my wedding there now! (one day!)
After editing/uploading my photos from the evening prior, we went for a usual slow and casual Sunday brunch with some friends at Boca Bar at Paintworks. The afternoon was spent knocking down the wall between our kitchen and dining room to start work on our new kitchen diner. I pretty much just supervised and let brad do all the hard work, but now the whole place is covered is brick dust so I’ll be the one cleaning up this morning, that’s team work!
