My week as Brand Manager was spent among beautiful wedding dresses, amazing hairstyles, heels to die for and super Champagne – wow what a week!

I started with a visit to The Complete Marylebone Bride, hosted at the fabulous Daniel Galvin hair salon, which was stunning and has no doubt seen many celebs pass through its doors. We were treated to bubbles and cake by the Little Venice Cake Company while we watched the gorgeous bridal inspirations show by Stephanie Allin. She is as cute as a button and every dress was gorgeous! The looks were styled by some of the top Daniel Galvin stylists and finished with flowers from John Crater and shoes by Aruna Seth. Yes I will get my hands (actually feet) on a pair of those butterfly heels one day…

The next day was spent visiting some of London’s top wedding venues by the Gouman group… Walking in to their Cumberland Hotel is like walking in to the Tate museum, filled with modern art like sculptures and lighting. Now as you may have noticed, I love food so when I heard Gary Rhodes regularly pops by to check on his restaurant located within the hotel I was extra excited. I had to go and have a sneaky peek at the kitchens and I am already planning a night to go back to test the food. I mean it would be rude not to… right?

Next stop: The Perfume Shop Spring/Summer launch, and talk about perfume heaven! I got to see all of the new releases for this season, there were some fab summer fragrances and some great offers to be had! My favourites were the new scents by Jimmy Choo and the gorgeous DKNY Sweet Delicious range, which are just perfect for bridesmaids in pretty pastel colours. Check out my video to see the new fragrances and some of the amazing offers that are out now…

Wednesday arrived and the latest issue of Wedding Ideas hit the shops! Is it sad that I now know all the stockists in Shepherds Bush where I live? After admiring her and enjoying a quick read at the local newsagent for a while I jumped on the tube and headed into town where I got to meet the lovely Skye from EdenCancan PR. She introduced me to the gorgeous new wedding dress line by Ariella Couture, who will be releasing their new bridal collection in April. If it’s anything like their evening wear range then we are in for a real treat!

My evening was spent chatting to the gorgeous Louisa Shipstone, my lovely friend who is also PA and basically right arm of the Royal-appointed dress designer Stewart Parvin We have joined ‘Club Bubble’ and are official members of the Champagne bar at Westfield Shopping Centre. Of course.

With great news of our recent ABC results I have been desperate to get back to the office to congratulate the team for their amazing efforts so I head back to Somerset for a herd hug and to catch up with the senior management team. We are off to the National Wedding Show this weekend so check out next week’s blog to find out what happened!

Lots of love
