Tweet tweet! West Weddings goes to Bristol’s wedding tweet up

What’s better than talking weddings? Well, that’s talking weddings with a whole host of lovely South West wedding folk over a glass of cava and some delicious canapes! And that’s exactly what I got to do last Wednesday at the Bristol wedding tweet up, organised by Kirsten from The Little Wedding Helper.
The venue was Bristol’s Goldbrick House on Bristol’s Park Street, a licensed venue for weddings as well as being a lovely bar and restaurant full of small, intimate rooms and a beautiful roof terrace. I was particularly impressed with the toilets; the ornate wallpaper and gold chandeliers quite put my own bathroom to shame! 
Kirsten had done a great job in promoting the event as over 30 different photographers, stylists, wedding planners and other wedding industry folk turned up to talk shop, swap ideas and generally get to know each other better outside of the computer.

It really was lovely to meet in real life so many people only previously known in the virtual world, and even nicer to do it with a glass of wine in one hand and a mini seared beef bruschetta in the other! It also showed how brilliant the wedding industry is in the South West and how brides and grooms are spoilt for choice when it comes to planning their wedding. From bespoke chocolates to wedding planning workshops, from handmade jewellery to brilliant entertainment, from stunning dresses to a whole raft of different styles of photographer, we have it all on our doorstep here in the West Country. 
So big thanks to Kirsten for organising the event and we’re already looking forward to the next tweet up!
