Thanks so much for visiting our page. Gert Lush Event Bars is run by three friends, Caroline, Barry and Dave whose aim is to provide you with an excellent, bespoke service to make your event perfect!
We have over 15 years experience in the hospitality trade and we aim to source environmentally friendly products from local suppliers as much as possible.
We are located in the beautiful Devonshire village of Kenton near Powderham Castle and are able to travel throughout the South West.
Hi - I'm the managing partner of Gert Lush Event Bars and I have worked in the hospitality industry for several years.
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality Management, a personal licence and event planning qualifications.
My role in the team is day to day operations, marketing and if you contact us its likely to be me you chat to first !
We believe that weddings and events should be sustainable, while maintaining good value for money so we are always working on reducing non recyclable waste and adding eco friendly products to our offering while maintaining competitive prices!
Dave is a Project Manager by trade and manages operations on site at our events.
Dave's passion is ensuring we provide you with a bespoke service tailored to your requests and ensuring we always serve a nice cold pint (a passion that is very close to his heart!)
Dave is also very involved with our local community heading up a group working to save our local village pub from redevelopment.
Barry is a Maintenance Operations Manager by trade and is in charge of site health & safety, maintenance and all things hands on.
Barry (and Dave) converted our horsebox into a beautiful mobile bar hand crafting the rustic feel and perfecting the design.
Barry is a master mixologist and loves to create new cocktails to bring you that unique feel - check out our cocktail menus for some of his creations!
Between the three of us we have several furries that get involved with the business; Hamish is a 6 year old Border Collie with a passion for herding helicopters (don't ask!) and is in charge of snuggles, Holly is a 3 year old lab/collie cross who is chief pre-washer, security and packaging destroyer and Fynn is a 1 year old Rough/Border Collie cross who well puts the crazy in the phrase crazy collie!
Not forgetting the last two furries our cats: Soots (aka Grumpy) and Tink (aka Asbo) who is chief knocker of objects onto the floor and pretends she's homeless for extra food!
