Sami Tipi Wedding Open Weekend

Spotlight on The Bespoke Bartenders

The Bespoke Bartender

There are only 3 weeks until our open weekend which is taking place on the 19th and 20th April at Bawdon Lodge Farm in Loughborough. We have enrolled the help of some very talented suppliers, who will be helping us showcase our magnificent tipis. The open weekend will give you the opportunity to see two giant hats and chill-out tipi and meet fabulous suppliers.

On todays blog I want to shine the spotlight on Richard from The Bespoke Bartender Company.


Firstly tell us a little bit about yourself?

The Bespoke Bartender Company was formed in early 2009 by myself, an experienced cocktail bartender. I have spent many years working in some of the best cocktail bars both in the UK and abroad, using the skills learnt from working in these fantastic premises I began work creating a mobile bar company with two key drivers…

– Excellent service

– Excellent standards

After years of experience in the hospitality industry I decided it was time to embark on his dream of creating his vision of the ideal (mobile) bar service.

Combining my love for all things vintage and my impeccable eye for detail I created a bar company that offered both the homely comforts of a pub with the exciting WOW factor of a busy cocktail bar! Offering everything from real ales to cocktails, The Bespoke Bartender Company is one of the only companies of it’s kind to mix ‘country’ with ‘cosmopolitan’.

The Bespoke Bartender Company continues to grow and excel in every event undertaken and (although we like to keep an authentic feel to our services) we always strive to keep at the forefront of bartending innovations.

How would you describe your style?

We have a vintage inspired kind of style, offering a slick cocktail service with all the character and charm of an old English pub.


What services do you offer?

We offer a broad range of bar services, everything from real ale to flair cocktails! As well as amazing mobile bar services The Bespoke Bartender Company also offers ‘create your own cocktail’ & ‘real ale’ experiences where you and your friends can learn about (and most importantly taste) various different drinks.


What do you love most about weddings?

I love to see how happy the bride and groom are on their big day. It’s probably the best part of my job seeing the couples (and guests) reaction when they walk into the bar area and (after months and months of planning) get to quaff their first drink at the bar. Bringing a real bar experience to outdoor events is what we do best, it’s a real WOW factor to have a set up that looks like a static bar under something as beautiful as a tipi.


Finally… Whats the best moment you’ve had as a wedding supplier?

It’s hard to choose really as we’ve been part of so many wonderful weddings, but one of my favorite moments was at one wedding where the groom thanked us for doing such a great job in his speech! That was an excellent moment and one I’ll always remember.
