Looking for something different and fun for your Hen’s Night or Bridal Shower? Grab your awesome support crew and friends for a fun paint and sip session at Pinot & Picasso Melbourne!
During the class a friendly teacher will guide you through a painting of your choice so you can create your own masterpieces while you all enjoy your favourite foods and drink (wine, beer or cocktails!). It’s a fun art class with a twist!
Sessions are 3 hours for a minimum of 20 people and it’s BYO, so you just need to bring along your favourite food and drinks. There are grazing boards available upon request.
Pinot & Picasso Melbourne is Australia’s number 1 paint and sip experience, with over 100 artworks to choose from and sessions guided and assisted by a trained artist. In addition to private sessions, Pinot & Picasso Melbourne also provide public sessions and corporate team building sessions.
Our fashion parades bring glamour, class and style to the catwalk. The fashion parades held at the Melbourne Bridal & Wedding Expo are not your average shows. We have exclusive and one-of-a-kind designers featuring in the show.
A newly designed show means latest trends in the bridal and menswear industry, featuring glowing models and styling inspiration.
The first parade is showing at 11am and the second to show at 1pm. You will love our range of gowns and menswear. Take a peek at our fashion parade from a previous Melbourne Bridal & Wedding Expo fashion parade.
