I don’t usually write about events I have worked at - I just slap up some of the pictures I like and thats that. However, this Essence of Harris event was so beautiful I just had to share a bit more about it and the company themselves. Rona, my sister from another mister, planned this event and proved to everybody that she has got hella event management skills.
The first thing you noticed was the smell that took over the room and the cosy ‘hygge’ elements you were surrounded by. Class and elegance sprung to mind when you entered - following what Essence of Harris base their brand on. There were other local brands offering things to do such as gin tasting from the gorgeous St Andrews basted distillery Eden Mill , a mini nail bar from Glasgows best NailCo.. Not forgetting the cocktail masterclass and incredible nibbles from The Corinthian Club (if oysters, chocolate covered strawberries and free champagne don’t scream class I don’t know what will…)
If anyone is a candle fan I can’t recommend Essence of Harris enough - their products are so beautiful and there’s a slight pleasure in supporting family businesses who have worked their asses off to get to where they are now. They also offer wax melts, diffusers, bath and body lotions - all follow the scents of the Hebrides! Each candle is hand poured on the island Harris and are made with soy wax containing no gunk or yucky things added (way-hey)!
They have even created their own Harris Tweed tartan which reflects the colours of the Hebridean Isles - how lovely is that?!
Here are some of the pictures from this gorge evening…
