UKAWP Mix & Mingle Evening ~ Part 1

UKAWP Mix & Mingle Logo by Gemma Milly

There are 3 main reasons why I’m thrilled to be sharing today’s post…

Firstly, this is the first instalment of a two part series about the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners (UKAWP) Mix & Mingle evening that I organised alongside fellow planners Serendipity Weddings and Pretty, Please.

Secondly, I get to share the beautiful work of the talented Mark from Hang the Moon.

And thirdly, the following film (from Hang the Moon) highlights the many reasons why I am so proud to be a member of the UKAWP.

So for those of you who don’t know…The UKAWP is the leading industry body for professional planners in the UK and provides an invaluable support network for both established and new planners.

Every year the UKAWP holds a social evening across the UK called “Mix and Mingle”. This annual event provides wedding planners and suppliers with the chance to unwind and catch up over a glass of elderbubbles (or two!).

This year I was honoured to organise the London event as not only did it give me the chance to thank the UKAWP for their ongoing support, it also provided me with an opportunity to work alongside two other fantastic wedding planners and some incredibly talented suppliers including:

In the second instalment of this series I’ll be talking more about these suppliers, a show stopping dry-ice dessert table and a planners “Wall of Fame”. I’ll also be sharing more fabulous photos from the utterly divine Babb Photo.

Today, however, I want to focus on the work of Mark from Hang the Moon

The definition of ‘Hang the Moon’ is to place the moon in the sky. It is together with this dream-like vision and Mark’s unique ability to capture beautiful moving images that he created Hang the Moon, bringing beautifully cinematic wedding videos to life.

The following film from Mark not only covers the behind-the-scenes action from the UKAWP Mix & Mingle, it also expertly captures the true value of the Alliance itself…

Next week I’ll back with Part 2 but in the meantime I want to thank the other planners and suppliers involved in the evening, and the UKAWP itself for providing me with so much support, advice and encouragement.
