The little Wedding Helper, true to her name, helped get things together so that last week all of the Wedding Mafia of Bristol could meet up for a networking evening. Most of us had already met via twitter and some of us had already met at various Wedding events in the South West, but it was great to meet up in person in a social setting. The Little wedding Helper is a bespoke event and marquee stylist and with her help we all had a grand evening with business cards changing hands every few minutes.

Goldbrick House

Goldbrick House was the venue, and considering I live in Bristol, I was surprised that I had never actually been inside the venue before. Goldbrick is a bit of a gem hidden away in two large georgian buildings and over four floors on bustling Park Street. I was taken on a tour of the various rooms they offer for hire within the venue and loved the decor of georgian and contemporary. The roof terrace had a stunning view over the City of Bristol. The tweet-up was situated in the champagne and cocktail bar on the first floor. There were glasses of sparkly being passed around all evening and wonderful platters of yummy foods. Goldbrick is a beautiful venue and well worth a look around. If you would like more information about Goldbrick House as a wedding venue then Kate Minton is the wedding planner there and can answer any questions.

Lizzie (Chocolate Delores) arrived with a box of her homemade chocolates. Lizzie (Lizzie-May Photography) arrived with her 6 week old baby girl who was simply gorgeous! Kirsty (the Little Wedding Helper) acted as the host and ran a competition with McQueens hairdressers, which was won by Stephanie Allison (How 2 Do I). I had a lovely catch up with Sue (Aunties Vintage China) who used to live next door to me years ago. There were many wedding photographers in the room and yet no one had actually bought a good camera with them! I also enjoyed hearing about Pete's (Proof Photography) wedding which takes place in a few weeks. Finally, it was great to meet the lovely Michele (My Wedding Workshop), Abi and Lisa (Marry me in Somerset), plus Holly form Perfect Wedding Magazine.

A HUGE thank you to Kirsty of The Little Wedding Helper for organising the event. I stayed until the end of the evening and came away with a large pile of business cards of some great local (South West) wedding companies. I thought that I would share them with you in case you may be looking for such a thing? Below you will find links to the companies present:
