Well we definitely partied like Gatsby!
Well the big day arrived for our Prohibition Party and we definitely partied like it was 1920!! With well over 100 impeccably dressed guests in attendance, the evening was simply fantastic!!
We kicked off proceedings at 7:30pm with a glass of fizz and photos at the front of the Hall. The weather was glorious so nobody seemed in a rush to go inside!
And the staff were just as excited!!!
In the Marquee, guests were greeting with music from an amazing traditional swing band and jazz singer - Mimi Hart, who even brought with them a dance teacher so guests could perfect their 1920s moves which went down a treat!!
In the Ballroom we had gambling tables from Royale Casino Promotions that really added to the 1920s ambiance, and guests couldn't get enough of them!
There was plenty of Gatsby and Glitz, but where was the 'Prohibition' I hear you ask?? Well in true prohibition style, our 'Secret' Cellar Bar was hidden away from any impending raids, with access permitted only if guests possessed the password. Once in, guests were treated to all manner of alcoholic delights like whisky cocktails and a much more illicit and decadent feel!
It really was smiles all round!
To make sure our guests had enough energy to keep on partying into the small hours, we served canapes shortly after arrival followed by traditional pie, mash, mushy peas, cabbage and gravy. We also had a rather epic dessert station complete with doughnut wall!
And to make our evening that much more special was the arrival of these two amazing people. One of the very first couples to get married at Garthmyl Hall, Lauren and Nana returned to where the magic happened and we were so pleased that they did! It was wonderful to see them again!!
So a massive thank you to everyone that came and made this event amazing!! Everyone put so much effort into the evening - the costumes were on another level!! We hope everyone enjoyed the evening as much as we did and we hope to see you at our future events!!
