It’s definitely one of those “I can’t believe this is my job” moments when I get invited to attend decadent events like this.
When floral genius and 2016-2017 Nu Bride Ambassador Amie Bone meets luxury planner and incredibly talented Nu Bride sponsor, Aimee Dunne Ltd, you know it’s going to be a match-made in creative wedding heaven.
It’s no surprise, fun-spirited Amie Bone loves a good party and it was a delight to attend her latest event at Knightsbridge gem, Jumeirah Carlton Tower last month; Amie Bone Summer Soiree.
There’s one thing for sure, Amie Bone and Jumeirah Carlton Tower absolutely know how to host their guests! We were warmly welcomed by everyone that greeted us, with an air of elegance, without the pretence.
As we entered the aptly named, Garden Room, it was met with audible gasps.
We were once again given an absolute floral visual treat as Amie is renowned for bringing the outside in and completely transforming venues, this time she turned space into a summer garden party. Amie has a seemingly effortless (I say seemingly, because I know how hard she and her team works) ability of raising her own standards as well as the industries standards by creating complete and utter works of art using flowers.
We were spoilt with culinary delights from Jumeirah Carlton Tower, from delicious Sushi to ice-lollies, complemented by decadent sweet treats from Elizabeth Solaru’s elegant sweet table. All while being entertained by the most epic magician I have ever seen (and I’ve seen many), Spencer Wood (check him out – seriously!), the sexiest violinist, pianist and DJ (oh my) to entertain us while we caught up with industry colleagues.
Completely and utterly spoilt and a delight to be part of such a vibrant, positive industry event. I once again, did not want to leave! Hubby had to drag me home eventually.
Enough from me, enjoy the stunning images from Sanshine Photography and over to Amie and Aimee for the low-down!
Amie Bone says;
I stalked Aimee on social media (Nu Bride: LOL) and thought we would make a good team for the soiree, I knew this needed to be the hottest thing in town so I wanted the best people on board.
I had always admired Amie Bone’s work, so was delighted when she asked me to come on board. From the first time I spoke to Amie I knew we’d make a great team! I love Amie’s style and her passion, and feel it really shows through in her work. She offers something fun and innovative, which I think the industry needs.
Amie had the idea of a Summer Soiree and we wanted to create the feel of a garden summer party in The Garden Room. Beautiful of course, but also something that would totally wow guests and be fun.
We had a pretty short timeframe (just over a month) to put ideas together and get other collaborators on board. This was a challenge especially given it being the middle of summer, but we had a wonderful team come on board and work equally hard on the event.
Thank you Amie Bone and your talented team for such a wonderful evening and once again raising the industries game!
