The evening of the 22nd September saw our fabulous ‘tweet up’ take place at The Tally Ho Hotel, Bicester. Located in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside this delightful hotel creates the perfect blend of the modern and traditional. The stunning Rafters room created the idealic setting as a group of local Wedding Suppliers arrived ready to network at this fabulous free event organised by Ice the Cake.co.uk and run in association with Wedding Ideas Magazine.
Throughout the evening guests were treated to some delicious cocktail cupcakes created by the fabulous ‘Cakes by Shelly’. Her delicious flavours included: After Eight, Appletini, Blue Lagoon, Cosmopolitan, Strawberry Daquiri and lots more and some lovely items donated by Trudi ‘All Wrapped Up’.
The evening was a great opportunity for local wedding suppliers to network and put faces to those they regularly chat with on ‘Twitter’. It was also a great excuse to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
Ice the Cake asked some of the suppliers to attended to share their pearls of wisdom for Brides to Be and here are a few of the comments:
“Make a wish list of honeymoon requirements” – Travel Counsellors
“Enjoy your day & relax, you have done all the hard work so don’t worry and have fun”
“When taking the Bride & Groom from church to reception take the longer route (if agreed of course). They arrive calm and collected – A Must!”
“Communicaton – communicate with suppliers and guests thoroughly”
“For the Bride & Groom to take 10 mins ‘out’ between day and evening” – The Sophisticated Touch
“Identify the mum’s on the day!”
The event was captured by Frank Millar Photography and after the responses from those who attended it is with delight that we will now be organising one for Christmas too!
