Valentine’s Day can be a daunting prospect at the best of times, but particularly if you are in the wedding industry and even more particularly if you are single. As both my sister and I agreed, there is only one thing worse than getting no Valentine’s Day cards or messages… and that’s getting one from your mum. Thanks mum.
But the looming spectre of over-priced chocolate, hideous teddy bears and that inevitable card from Mrs Chorley (signed “guess who?”, naturally) were all swept briskly away by bespoke wedding planner Mark Niemierko and the Niemierko Valentine’s Day Party on 12th February.
Taking place at Saville Row tailors Spencer Hart, the venue could not have been more perfect to house the most influential bloggers, planners and designers, all of whom enjoyed poking around the very same rooms where stars such as Orlando Bloom, Benedict Cumberbatch and Robbie Williams have been outfitted by the world famous designers.
Neighbours Claridges provided an array of delicious canapés whilst keeping champagne and cocktails flowed freely all evening. Charlotte and I had a wonderful night and were happy to suffer slightly fuzzy heads the next morning. Thank again, Mr. Niemierko, for saving Valentine’s Day… And thanks for the card Mum.
Take a look at the video below, hosted by Peta Hunt, Editor at large of You and Your Wedding, for all the gossip from the party.
