The Wedding Sanctuary is taking place on Sunday 3rd March at RSA House in London and has been conceived by the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners . Now it’s not just another wedding fair, where the Wedding Sanctuary really comes into its own is how each area is a dedicated zone that will help in different areas of your wedding planning.
Hope you’ve had a great fortnight since our last LoveLuxe Hangout! Tonight we’re going to be talking on the topic of Making Christmas Special for Children (our hashtag tonight to join in the conversation is #loveluxechristmas). From ideas on how to cultivate new family traditions to how to keep the little ‘uns entertained over the festive break, we’re really looking forward to being joined by photographer and blogger Emily Quinton who runs The Start Up Wife, Ellie Kelly from Buttons Children’s Parties, photographer Kate Griffin and baker Autumn Rabbitts from Plumb _ Rabbitts!

Well good morning!! I have to say, I am very pleased to even be writing this at all after my crazy rain-thrashed four hour drive home last night from Brighton – wasn’t sure at a few moments whether I’d ever get home! :O
It was all worth it though as it was in aid of joining the lovely and oh-so-talented Louise O’Mahony from Oh My Honey and a myriad of other illustrious wedding industry folk launch Louise’s new 1950s inspired wedding dress collection!
This is a bit of an epic blog post – I had an awful lot of fun at this creative and colourful party and went a bit photo mad – but hope you will enjoy people spotting (there are lots of familiar faces!) and be amazed at the incredible dresses and entertainment that Louise put on for her guests! I am so in awe of not only Louise’s dress making talent but also her party planning skills – the whole event was amazing and just the best way to host a launch party!
First off, I want to share a couple of videos I did earlier on in the afternoon – first with Louise herself – the leading lady!
Hello and welcome to this fortnight’s LoveLuxe Hangout! This evening we are joined with a brand new illustrious panel and because the festive season is just around the corner (I’m just itching to get our tree up!) we are going to be talking about how to host a Christmas Open House Party!
We’ll be live from 8pm and all you need to do to watch is press play. We’d also love you to get involved with your questions and comments while we’re on air, and to submit those all you need to do is to include the hashtag #christmasopenhouse either direct on Twitter or via the box below this post.
Christmas Open House Party Panel:

I did originally hope I’d be able to do some live coverage for you guys – would have been so fun! But actually the internet connection isn’t quite as fast as we need and it’s turned out to be a bit more technical than I realised! However I have just shot a couple of videos which I thought you might like to see. They are almost live – filmed just 25 minutes ago!
First of all – a short hello from LoveLuxe columnist Jessie Thomson who is here helping with the planning of the event:
And here’s a short video with Johanna herself – apologies for the sound quality, I think I need to invest in a microphone pretty sharpish!
Post now updated with photos from the event, so do click through to see all the fun!
