Meet Jen, one half of Brisbane based events and pop-up caravan bar, Gathering Events:
Tell us a little about yourself: I am an eternal optimist, romantic and dreamer. I am also an owner and operator of a vintage caravan bar based in beautiful Brisbane. My husband and I renovated our 1970’s vintage caravan, converting it into a fully operational bar and mobile venue – the life of any party!
What is Gathering Events and how does it work? At Gathering Events our priority is creating old fashioned good-times, with a fun and fresh twist! We offer event and wedding planning, as well as a groom’s room whisky bar. But the love of our life is our custom designed (and personally renovated) mobile vintage caravan bar, available for hire for events of all sizes! Gathering Events is constantly committed to achieving professionalism and the end result in every part of our business. We travel far and wide to celebrations of all types to offer a complete pop-up bar service, from Brisbane to the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Byron Bay. How did Gathering Events come about? Behind the scenes, Gathering Events is my husband Adam and I. I have over eight years experience in the marketing and events, whilst Adam is a true jack- of-all-trades, with both a mechanical and carpentry background. With my penchant for vintage caravans and styling and Adam’s belief that a celebration should know no boundaries, our mobile caravan bar was born. Describe your aesthetic: Natural tones, raw materials, big blooms, a splash of vintage glamour and a dash of eccentric trinkets.Our mobile caravan bar has been designed with clean white interiors and raw timber finishes. Our ultimate goal was for people to be able to make it their own for the day and to be able to integrate it into their own celebration. What should people expect before meeting with you? I am all about people and their stories. I love to truly understand and hear all about those I work with, whilst enjoying a delicious coffee. Adam and I both possess tenacious traits when working towards achieving our client’s goal. What do you love most about your job? I get excited to wake up each morning knowing I will be surrounded by beautiful clients and super talented industry folk. I also love the freedom and opportunity of working in a small business and I love the diversity of events the caravan lends itself to. Photography Daisy & The Duke + Wildflower Weddings + Portraits
