hi there,

I’m Mariella, the creative spirit behind Paint Party Social Club. So how did I go from being Bulgaria’s first certified wedding planner to running London’s most vibrant paint and sip events, which was featured as one of the top paint and sip events in London? Grab a cuppa, and let me share my kaleidoscopic journey with you!

My Story

Way back in 2004, I launched 'Fairytale Day,' a boutique wedding agency in Bulgaria as a small family business. My sister and I, along with a stellar team, planned many luxury weddings, even rubbing shoulders with celebs along the way! But in 2009, the global recession hit us hard. It was a tough call, but we packed our bags for a new chapter in the UK.

Originally, the dream was to expand our wedding planning business in London. Let’s just say life had other plans. My sister and I parted ways. So, I switched gears, first immersing myself in hospitality for a few years, then as a beauty and makeup consultant. Eventually, I got my groove back as an event planner at a five-star hotel, and then I jumped into destination wedding consultancy at a company based in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Then, enter 2020—the year that turned everything upside down.

The pandemic caught my husband overseas for quite a long time. Stranded alone at home, I was struck with a realisation: What truly makes me buzz is sparking joy and creativity in others. Inspired by the trend of online art classes, a lightbulb went on. Why not blend my event-planning expertise with a sprinkle of art and a dash of wine?

I envisioned a relaxed evening where my guests are painting their next masterpiece and sipping exquisite wine, surrounded by soon-to-be friends—a breezy, happy environment that gives so much joy and unforgettable moments.

I started my wedding planning business because I love making people happy. My paint party business is an extension of this passion.

Thus, the Paint Party Social Club was born. My first paint party was at the beginning of summer 2021, but my business started to grow slowly in 2022. I consider my business still in its infancy as I am working on my own and growing very slowly but steadily. Now, I specialise in creative team-building and artsy private parties and celebrations.

My mission? To become the go-to hub in London for unforgettable social art & craft events that unleash your inner artist. Paint Party Social Club is here to spread the gospel of creativity, one paint stroke at a time.

So, what are you waiting for? Come and be a part of our vibrant community.


Let’s make art, memories, and a whole lot of happiness!

Warm hugs,

Mariella Wilson 💖
