Under The Vintage Veil – What a Night!

Diary of a Wedding Planner

So it finally arrived! After all my previous posts leading up to this event, and a lot of excitement on twitter, Sunday 10th June finally arrived and Oh So Perfect partied in style!

#veilbash (as it has most affectionately been labelled) was organised and delivered by the wonderful Sara Doron and team at Under The Vintage Veil to celebrate the blog’s first birthday and successful year as a new and innovative wedding blog focussing on all things vintage-inspired and shabby chic.

The party was held at the rather fabulous Proud Cabaret in Brighton and consisted of a few announcements by Sara, a marvellous catwalk show, sweetie tables, cake (YES!), a pop up photobooth, hair saloon, pamper parlour and plenty of dancing the night away with cocktails in hand!

I met some really wonderful new people and friends who I hope to keep in touch with, and it was a fantastic opportunity to let our hair down and have a giggle with some of the wedding industry’s finest photographers, fashion and accessory designers, beauticians, suppliers and other wedding planners and bloggers.

The bash came with one rule only – this was not a heavy networking event – it was a party and should be treated as such, and it certainly was! But even so, you could see everyone was delighted to put faces to names and find out what everyone gets up to within the industry and in conjunction with the Under the Vintage Veil blog. It certainly highlighted to a lot of people there also just how important Twitter is to businesses, especially in this fast paced industry, as everyone swapped twitter names in place of business cards and asked ‘Do I follow you on Twitter?’

But that’s enough rambling from me, I know you’d like to see some snaps, and a final reveal of that flower headdress I have been going on about for weeks (it was perfect by the way!) so I will leave you now with my pictures of the night. I won’t lie to you, they’re not the greatest photos as I only had my iPhone to hand and the party lighting didn’t leave me much room for creativity, plus I was so busy chatting and dancing that I didn’t take very many in the end, but it will give you a taste of what the night was like. You can also check out the Under the Vintage Veil blog too for more detailed updates of the party and the professional shots that were taken… enjoy!
