A red carpet, decadently lined with cherry blossom trees and lanterns filled with lit candles lead us into the stylish venue itself… which was displayed as a high-end, luxury wedding. The stage was ornately designed with cherry trees, each table had a cherry blossom centre-piece, flower walls for photo ops were positioned at both ends of the room, funky lighting, high energy tunes… all blended in harmony to create such a buzz of excitement before the guests arrived. Upon stepping foot in the room, you knew it was going to be a great night! The attention to detail by Sheelagh and Designer, Adeline Molloy (Instagram: @adelinemolloydesign – was second to none…

Domaine Des Jeanne had the pleasure of hosting the Drinks Reception from 6pm, led by our Business Development Manager, Denise Douet.

Together, they helped us spread the word about our delicious collection of wine from the Luberon in the South of France.

In fact, the planning for the next show begins as soon as the last one ends… Thank you so much to Lisa McGowan (@lisas_lust_list), Linda Blanchfield and the rest of the team, we were honoured to be part of such an amazing night. Huge congratulations on such a successful show!
