As a special thanks to the bridal names we work with, the Brides team put on a stunning showcase at The Corinthia London last night.
Magician Drummond Money-Coutts, comedian Josh Widdicombe and a fun photobooth by The Photo Emporium wow-ed and entertained guests, as did former X-Factor contestant Ella Henderson's surprise performance.
Retail Editor Arabella Dupont commented: "We always get asked how we'd throw our dream wedding, so this was our chance to bring together the talented people we work with on a daily basis and show how we would do that."
The most exquisite invites by Paul Antonio Scibe set the tone and the Corinthia's impressive ballroom hosted our celebration. Adding to the brilliance of the night were floral arrangements by By Appointment Only Designs and cakes by Maki's Cakes, all orchestrated beautifully with the help of wedding planner Bruce Russell.
We also wanted to give our White Hot Hope campaign one final push to help reach our target of £100,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital and their amazing work.
With special thanks to the following who generously donated the following raffle prizes: Velassaru Maldives who donated a fabulous 7-night holiday; Turkish Airlines who kindly provided return flights to the Maldives; Good Results PR team; Michael Van Clarke who gifted a £1,000 styling voucher; Stoke Park who donated an all inclusive weekend break for two; Bovey Castle who donated a luxurious weekend break for two
