Participants at the first Bridal Workshop orgnised by
Zapphaire Events looking through some of wedding exhibits
RECENTLY, Zapphaire Events held its’ first Bridal Workshop, an event that was revealed to be just one of the innovations lined up under Zapphaire Lifestyle Series.
C.E.O of the firm, Funke Bucknor-Obruthe, had earlier explained in a press conference, that Zapphaire Events is taking things up another notch, with Zapphaire Lifestyle; an arm that would handle projects like workshops for brides and aspiring event planners, books and other literature, and other ideas that are still being worked on!
At the first edition of the Bridal Workshop, Bucknor-Obruthe and her friends (other event service providers) took guests on a visual walk through what to expect before, on and after a wedding!
Some of the other speakers were Debola Lewis, Body Lawson, Juyin Demuren, Omoyemi Akerele and Tee-A, and topics covered included, Planning a Honeymoon, Drawing up a Budget, Making a Checklist, Booking your Photographer, Grooming and Styling for the Bride, Groom and Bridal Party, and Choosing the venue, theme and décor for the wedding!
There were also exhibitors such as Abiola Aso-oke, Bay Bloom Limited, Beyond Faces, Ajala Travels, House of Tara, Clothsense, Buckstone Ventures, Perfect Occasions and Water to Wine!
The stands were strategically placed outdoors, and guests could walk through and meet the exhibitors, during breaks at the Workshop.
Apart from lectures and exhibitions, guests also had a great time as they networked, chit-chatted, and won fantastic prizes; while also getting good discounts from some of the exhibitors. They also went home with notebooks, pens, folders, resource fliers and other souvenirs from Zapphaire.
Guests included Lamide Akintobi, Kemi Lewis, Noble Igwe, Mubarak Adegunwa of MBK Studios, Mandy Noelle, Kehinde Adollo, and more, and the event was hosted by Niyi Badmus and T-Laff!
