A Night out in Newcastle in full Vintage Glamour

On 3rd August I attended the Love My Dress Summer Soiree . It was full of the ladies and gentlemen involved in the wedding industry, all dressed in fabulous vintage outfits, looking utterly gorgeous. I traveled up with Beckie Gregory from Temple Gregory, and I treated myself to a first class ticket on the train! Well, if you are going for a fancy night out you might as well do it in style! Once settled at the hotel, Beckie and I swiftly opened a bottle of champagne to start off the evening whilst getting glammed up. On arrival at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Arts we joined the long queue to get in, where we were given our name badges and a super goody bag. Please look at the LMD blog to see the list of suppliers who provided these goodies, along with the list of everyone who helped to make this such a stunning event.

With a glass of bubbly in our hands (the start of a long night of quaffing champagne...!) we started to mingle amongst the guests. It was such a brilliant way to meet all the people from the industry who I had heard about or seen on Twitter, to finally be able to put faces to names. First I talked with Jon from Jon Keith Diamonds and his lovely wife, who was looking radiant in pregnancy. Beckie and I then consumed the yummy canapes with Andri from Always Andri Wedding Design, after which at the bar we bumped into Dominic and Helen, the creative duo from Cutture. I popped outside for some fresh air after the breath-taking show by Vicky Butterfly, where I was introduced to wedding dress designer Sassy Holford.

There were so many other lovely people I met in queues for the bar, queues for the 'ladies' and literally when bumping into them. I finally managed to track down the lovely Annabel from Love My Dress and I was able to congratulate her for organising such a fantastic event. People had come from far and wide to be here this night which is proof of her popularity and success as one of the top wedding bloggers out there today. Well done Annabel and thank you!
