UKAWP South West Mix & Mingle Event 2014 at The Green House Hotel

Posted

We were delighted to arrange the first UKAWP South West Mix and Mingle last week which took place last week at The Green House Hotel and what a fantastic evening it was!  A fantastic group of suppliers and planners attended which made for a lively evening with lots of connections being made.  Attendees were able to have a tour of this gorgeous boutique Hotel in Bournemouth and enjoy some great canapes from the kitchen of resident Head Chef Andy Hilton of Arbor Restaurant within the Green House Hotel, English sparkling wine courtesy of English Oak Vineyard who gave us a wine tasting talk and entertainment courtesy of Katie Francesca, mingling magic by Chris Piercy and fun photobooth by Photobooth Bournemouth.  Here are some of our favourite images of the evening kindly captured for us by talented local photographer Howard Lucas
