pop up lounges – whisky & cigars, bubbles & botanicals…

It seems soooo long since the lovely S and I were lying under a palm tree musing about the idea that eventually became our new pop up lounges.   It has seemed AGES since we first came up with the idea on holiday in February but it’s actually only just over 4 months from the germ of an idea to getting the finished article photographed.   The lounges have actually been used by several couples already this year but I’m still waiting on their official photos (patience not being a particular virtue of mine when it comes to waiting on photos).

Clare our lovely elopement photographer popped over one evening last week and took the pics and yesterday they arrived in my in-box – hoorah!

First there’s the whisky & cigar bar which comes with glasses and yep, whisky and cigars (does what it says on the tin).   With art deco inspired furniture including potted palms this pop up lounge gives a real sense of an old school private club.

The lounges will pop up in the evening whilst guests are dining, so they won’t know anything until it’s ready to be revealed.  What a great surprise!

The pop up is located on the lawns in its very own mini marquee (4.5 m x 4.5 m for the space boffins among us).  So guests can wander in an out as they choose.  If the weather is not good, the pop ups can pop up inside the wedding marquee for the evening, we’ll set them up during the change over whilst guests are having tea & coffee and the main bar is opened.

Complete with aviator chairs, persian rug, decanters, glasses and a replica croc’s head (what whisky bar would be complete without one?) this will keep even the most discerning of guests happy.

Guests can help themselves to the whisky and cigars and when they’re all gone, they can lounge on the chesterfield and pretend to be a lounge lizard (or maybe they’re not pretending, who knows?)

You can make your own selection of whiskys or we can help with recommendations if you prefer.   The lovely S has recently joined a whisky club so he will be doing a monthly whisky tasting which will be up on the blog each month.

Take a look…

White sofas, zebra print cube seating, silver cushions, mirrored tables and an ostrich feather palm tree – I know, right?

Plus you get to drink your champagne from a hollywood style coupe saucer glass – how glam is that?   And of course, balloon glasses for the gin (is it just me or does it taste different in a fabulous glass? Ok, good it’s not just me…)
