The Alastair Currie Events team was approached by this long-standing client to assist them in celebrating a very special birthday in a weekend-long celebration with their closest friends and family.
Armed with our client’s brief our role begun on the quest for the perfect party venue within an hour of Bristol. A stunning Somerset manor house was the chosen venue offering plenty of space for both accommodating guests and for hosting the all-important evening celebrations.
The weekend kicked off on Friday afternoon with guests arriving to tea and cake, with our team taking care of all luggage including goody bags which had been carefully placed in each of the bedrooms. A relaxed yet delicious BBQ on Friday evening at one of the renovated barns within the grounds, allowed guests to wind down from the week.
A full breakfast spread each morning featuring a made to order menu set the guests up ahead of their day, whether they were taking in the local views with a walk, enjoying the onsite pool or simply just sitting by one of the open fires.
Saturday evening was the highlight of the weekend – canapes and champagne at the beautiful lake house within the grounds, followed by a nine-course menu with wine flight within the Manor house. After dinner a surprise performance got guests up onto their feet – the party then continued into the early hours!
A wonderful weekend celebration!
