Ok, today’s supplier has to almost be our favourite so far, I mean even our names are a match made in heaven! The guys behind Gin and Bear It, John and Aaron really have created the most fantastic, quirky and fun wedding bar. Featuring their 1968 vintage Morris Minor Aubrey, the guys serve a range of gins, including local gins from their beloved Brighton. They can even create a personalised cocktail just for your wedding! They also try and source locally grown ingredients which we love. We spoke to John from Gin and Bear It to find out more…
Tell us a a bit more about Gin and Bear It…
We are a pop-up gin bar, we serve at weddings, festivals, parties and anything you would like to celebrate.
What inspired you to start your business?
We bought the car first, then realised we probably needed to make it pay for itself. As big gin lovers the answer was obvious! Start a Bar!
How are you different from any other similar suppliers?
Our car is a very big seller, he’s a handsome chap and makes for a very pretty set up. We serve directly from the top of the car and from what we know, no one else has the same set up.
What do you love most about working in the wedding industry?
Working on the happiest day of most people’s lives and sharing in their celebration makes working an absolute joy.
What would be your number one piece of advice for a bride to be?
Get someone to handle everything on the day. No matter how much of a control freak you are, you want to enjoy the day. Get someone you trust to hand the reigns over to on the day and then just be swept along by the celebration.
Tell us about the best thing you have seen at a wedding you have been to?
We worked at a wedding in an old cinema where the bride and groom had gone to the trouble of making a movie about their lives and included everyone invited. It was very sweet and very entertaining.
Finally, in one sentence why should someone choose Gin and Bear It?
We tailor all of our services to make sure you have a wonderful celebration.
