Entwined in the Valley 2014 in Pictures

Entwined in the Valley 2014Last night I was lucky enough to attend Entwined in the Valley 2014. A huge thank-you to the City of Swan for inviting me along!

The City of Swan hosted esteemed chefs; George Calombaris and Kiren Mainwaring for a night of great food, excellent wine and entertainment at the Houghton’s Winery Marquee.

The degustation was in honour of the Swan Valley being named Australia’s first Humane Food Region alongside celebrating 180 years of winemaking in 2014.

Each delectable course was matched with the award-winning local wines from the 2014 Singapore Airlines Swan Valley Wine Show.

Entwined in the Valley - Casey Wearing Memories, Harper Hair, Cooper StThe MC of the night was Anna Gare, TV personality and foodie. Master of Wine, Ch’ng Poh Tiong joined the evening to speak about each of the wines and I have to admit he gave everyone a good few laughs throughout the night!

I decided to go all out for the event, as it’s been ages since I’ve got all dolled up, so I had my hair done by the lovely Taliya from Harper Hair which you can see here and the lovely ladies from Wearing Memories leant me a gorgeous necklace , bracelet and earrings which you can see here and here.

Anyway enough of my blabbering, you guys all just want to see the photos right? Here you go….
