Hey 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 feather as one of the top paint & sip events in London? Grab a cuppa and let me share my kaleidoscopic journey with you!

Way back in 2004, I launched “Fairytale Day,” a boutique wedding agency in Bulgaria. With a stellar team, we planned over 250 luxe weddings, even rubbing shoulders with celebs along the way! But in 2009, the global recession hit us hard. 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. So I switched gears, first immersing myself 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 in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Then, enter 2020—the year that turned everything upside down.

Stranded alone at home during the pandemic, 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?

Thus, the Paint Party Social Club was born. Picture this: A relaxed evening where you’re painting your next masterpiece and sipping exquisite wine, surrounded by soon-to-be friends. Your sanctuary from the London hustle, your canvas of serenity.

Our mission? To become the go-to hub in South West London for unforgettable social events that unleash your inner artist. We’re 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!

What to expect when you come to one of our social paint party events:

  • Step into our welcoming space, where upbeat tunes meet charming, themed table settings. From colourful aprons to handpicked brushes, we’ve got everything set for your artistic adventure.
  • No art experience? No problem! Follow our easy, step-by-step instructions and create a selfie-worthy masterpiece that’s ready to hang on your wall.
  • We’re not about stiff, formal art lessons. Instead, we offer a joyful oasis from daily life, designed to surprise and inspire you.

I look forward to painting with you soon.
