When top UK wedding planner MARK NIEMIERKO invites you for tea at THE DORCHESTER in aid of Darcy Miller, editor of MARTHA STEWART WEDDINGS Magazine, being in town you know it’s time to glam up! Coral pink ruffled dress, check. Carrie Bradshaw heels, check. Arriving in traditional black cab which was opened by a smartly dressed doorman adorning top hat and coat, check.
Upon arrival at The Dorchester I made my way up to the Penthouse Pavilion event space and was greeting with a glass of bubbly by some very well turned out “soldiers”. It was so lovely to see the room dressed for an event. Only a few short days before this I was assisting on an out of this world pre-wedding shoot produced and planned by MARK NIEMIERKO and photographed by one of my favourite wedding photograpers in the world, NIKOLE RAMSAY, who was flown in from Australia especially for the shoot!

The highlight of the evening was chatting one on one with a number of the UK’s top wedding dress designers. Here I am with STEPHANIE ALLIN who’s dresses I photographed for a styled shoot which was published over 8 pages in You & Your Wedding magazine.

Wedding dress designer BRUCE OLDFIELD in the middle, who’s campaign I retouched around two years ago. Was nice to meet him in person!
DAVID FIELDEN who I regret not chatting to! Keata who is one of my most published brides to date wore one of his dresses and so did Jen who’s wedding we shot out in Mauritius. David made the dress especially for her even though it had been discontinued! She was in love.
