Technology & Events – The perfect combination!

Technology has become an essential part of our lives – we rely on it to help us with simple tasks daily. It’s no different for us at One Great George Street, we use technology to help give our clients the best experience possible, whether it’s used for controlling the temperature of a room, lighting effects or providing virtual meeting solutions.

With that in mind, maybe you are having thoughts about the ways in which technology can benefit your events in the future. One Great George Street has a host of virtual event packages available to suit your needs – whether completely or partially virtual. You can even tour our venue virtually using the VR tour on the homepage – and if you’re not au fait with technology – don’t worry! – we can handle all of that for you!

You can reach us by e-mail or video call, just contact info@onegreatgeorgestreet.com

The New Normal – Events in The Future

The time the world will return to ‘normal’ is currently uncertain, however, that doesn’t mean we can’t make room for a new ‘normal’, in anticipation of the time when we are able to re-open.

We are pleased to announce our new potential revised room capacities, which have been carefully considered; taking into account current government guidelines pertaining to social distancing.

Our team are on hand to answer any questions you may have regarding future planning – contact us by e-mail: info@onegreatgeorgestreet.com

5 Reasons To Plan Your Wedding During Lockdown

We are now over six weeks into Lockdown due to COVID-19, and hopefully, you have been able to adjust to a new routine! We have all had to postpone our social calendars and be patient as we look forward to the future; where we can be in each other’s company again.

With so much extra time on our hands, many are taking up hobbies – old and new, & indulging in massive amounts of self-care (glass of wine included!), but what if your big day has been postponed? Or you were trying to make plans for your wedding in the future? All is not lost, this is actually a GREAT time to plan (or make some adjustments to) your wedding!

Here are FIVE reasons to plan your wedding during lock-down!

1. Time to research, research, research!

With extra time on your hands, now is the perfect time to thoroughly research all your options, scroll away on wedding venue directories, such as Hitched, browse venue websites (like our newly launched site), and build that Instagram and Pinterest board you’ve been meaning to!

        2. Virtual reality fun!

There are only so many tours on foot one can do in a day – you are only human after all! Not to fear, as technology has made it possible for you to tour the venue from the comfort of your own home! See our virtual tour here

3. One on one time with your planner.

Wedding planners may not be able to see you in person, but they are still very much available to consult and assist you in planning to turn your vision into reality. You can talk to ours here.

4. Headspace for the smaller details

More time at home means more time to fine comb the smaller aspects of your big day, like refining your gift registry, updating your wedding website, or even re-wording your vows. Carpe Diem!

5. Time to de-stress

Planning your big day can be stressful! So take the extra time you have to show yourself some love. Check out this article for some tips on well-being.

 

Hopefully, these tips gave you the reassurance you needed, if not, don’t fret just…..

To the NHS – Thank you!

I think we can all agree that the NHS are doing an amazing job caring for the nation at this difficult time. Hospital staff including doctors, nurses, and surgeons (to name a few) are part of a system that provides vital healthcare to many, and we are even more grateful for them during this pandemic.

For all the hours spent working, for the time spent away from family, for all your selfless acts …

THANK YOU!

Share & re-post the image to show your support for the NHS.

FYI – Quarantine Resources!

 

Quarantine has been in effect in the UK for a few weeks now, and we are all adjusting to our new routines.

However, one must pause and question whether all the information received is accurate or useful.

In light of that, we have compiled links to some very helpful resources that you may find of use during this time.

Like and share these links with your colleagues, family, and friends!
