By formal invitation, Jade Beer (the editor of Brides magazine) and Moët & Chandon requested the honour of my company for an ‘exclusive influencers wedding breakfast’, hosted last Monday (9th April) at Claridge’s – so the invitation said, anyway. Having attended a similar press dinner around this time last year at The Savoy with Brides magazine (read about that one here), I was thrilled! What a lovely invitation to receive through the post, and on a Monday!
The Friday before was my first wedding of the season at Victoria Park in East London, then that evening I was due to be getting the last train out of London to Edinburgh for my cousin’s wedding on the Saturday. Knowing I wouldn’t be back in London until late on Sunday night, I booked myself in for a blow dry at Michael Van Clarke to spruce myself up a bit, after a whirlwind weekend of weddings…
We were greeted with a gorgeous champagne tower and the most unusual champagne flutes that had no bottoms (only stems!) and then a Moët flower shop where we got to pick our favourite stems from the ‘stalls’ and then the expert florists from Rob Van Helden put them all together for us in a gorgeous bouquet to take home.
It was a similar vibe to last year, a bit of a blogger/press brainstorm with content ideas galore, and of course Moët treating us to lots of different types, years and colours of champers and telling us how to perfect complement weddings with them all… including the cute little personalised bottles we all got with our faces on!
The afternoon was wedding perfect, including hand drawn illustrations as place cards, a donut trolley, and a goody bag to die for (it had GHDs in it!! Amongst lots of other lovely things like a White Company candle, and lots of other lux treasures).
It was rather too much Moët for a Monday lunchtime, but it was a good reminder that I should take Monday’s off more often after I’ve been working at the weekend 😊
