Today we have something very exciting to announce…!
In conjunction with Emma Miller (hand-lettering artist & graphic designer, and owner of Pigeon Pie Design), we are launching The Wedding Lab, a workshop aimed at DIY brides/grooms to be, set to take place on Sunday 31 August 2014.
Emma and I have been planning the workshop for some time now after a conversation we had about how so many couples these days were really keen on rolling up their sleeves and taking on wedding-related projects themselves but sometimes didn’t know where to start or became quickly overwhelmed by all the options. We wanted to create an educational experience that would provide these sorts of couples with the skills to be able to style their own wedding day in a cohesive way.
Combining my styling and planning experience and Emma’s design experience, we’ve created a program which will give participants lots of practical information as well as guidance in hands-on activities including creating an inspiration board and outline of a styling brief, and designing their own stationery. Our intention is for people to walk away from the workshop equipped with new skills, increased knowledge and the confidence to be able to DIY their wedding, or parts of it, in a way that is manageable and fun.
In addition, participants will have the opportunity to check out the wares and sample the food of some amazing local vendors. We’ll be announcing our partners and telling you a bit about them on The Wedding Lab blog over the next weeks so stay tuned to the website for more information and make sure you sign up to our newsletter so you don’t miss anything!
If you have any questions or are a vendor who would like to get involved, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
