Firstly I'd like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! As we pack up the Christmas decorations, finish off the last pieces of chocolate and store away those festive jumpers, we look forward to a very exciting 2011. Starting off with our 20th birthday this month!

To celebrate we are giving way some amazing prizes throughout the month of January. We kick off by giving away a fabulous photo-shoot with award-winning photographer Emily Quinton and creative stylist Charley Beard. In association with Love My Dress, one lucky winner and their partner will work with Emily and Charley to choose the perfect location, venue and theme for the photo-shoot. The result will be a set of unique and beautiful images that can be treasured forever. To be in with the chance of winning this exclusive prize, please visit www.carolinecastigliano.co.uk/20thbirthday

We'll be offering you the chance to win many incredible prizes in January so make sure to visit our website daily!

And remember we'll also be celebrating our birthday in style at the Mandarin Oriental, Hyde Park on January 20. Join us for a spectacular catwalk show where I'll be unveiling the new 2011/12 collection, and enjoy bridal beauty advice and makeovers whilst sipping on champagne.
