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!
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!
Yesterday evening I had the privilege of being invited with a host of other wedding industry friends to the launch of Hermione Harbutt‘s new Clifton Village showroom in Bristol. Hermione is world renowned for her beautiful and intricate headware designs and it was great to see them up close and personal. She has a fab bridal range and a red carpet range – which had its launch in LA, naturally (hey, why wasn’t I invited to that one? Hehe)!
It was really lovely to catch up with everyone who attended including Perfect Wedding Magazine, Kirsten – Little Wedding Helper, Emma Woodhouse – The Wedding Reporter and Catherine Mead – Wedding Photographer plus I did spot Hermione’s friend Nick Knowles from DIY SOS fame too (find him in one of the photos below!).
Wowee! What a day! Thank you so much to everyone who contributed and came along to #loveluxelaunch at the fabulous Goldney Hall yesterday – it was spectacular and even better than I could have dreamed – all thanks to the amazing team who helped put it together!
Come and have a look at all the photo goodness and prepare to swoon!
