Heart Invites had the pleasure of attending this year’s Wedding Ideas Awards at the Tower Hotel in London, having been nominated as a Finalist for Best Wedding Stationery 2014. It was a fantastic evening, and I am immensely proud to have been a part of it, achieving Highly Commended in the awards.
I was pleased to have my husband Luke with me for the night who I had great pleasure in dressing up in a tux for the evening! Makes a lovely change to the work overalls and grubby rugby kits! The night consisted of a drinks reception on arrival giving us the chance to mingle with the cream of the crop in the wedding industry, and giving me the chance to ogle over the Butlers in the Buff that swanned around the room serving Champagne! Whilst I couldn’t make the most of the free flowing alcohol, Luke certainly made up for it on my behalf!
We sat down to a delicious 3-course meal in the beautifully decorated venue room and were pleased to have been sat with a great group of people, including Kelly Scully and her husband from the wonderful Tantrums and Tiaras and Sarah Legge and her husband Joe from Sarah Legge Photography (Spot them in our group ‘Selifie’ below!). Sarah won in her category, which was fantastic. Check out her beautiful work here.
The awards were presented by Britain’s Got Talent’s Francine Lewis, who treated us to some of her famous impressions before going on to announce of the Winners. Once all of the awards had been given out it was time for the after party…. Time to hit the dance floor and for Luke to test out the incredible vodka luge – a large ice sculpture of a giraffe with Absolute Vodka pouring down the middle.
It was an incredible night and the perfect start to 2014. Onwards and upwards we go!
I would also like to thank my gorgeous friend and very talented Make-up artist Alex Taylor for working her magic and doing my beautiful make-up for the event! If you are looking for your wedding make-up artist pop over to her website here. I can’t recommend her enough!
