It was all slightly last minute, Emma Freemantle, a fabulous stylist friend called me up - I hadn't spoken to her in years - asking if I was available for her friend's wedding. I was? Brilliant! A central London wedding - Marylebone Registry Office, where my little brother tied the knot only last year - followed by an intimate event at the brand new Regency townhouse that is now The Dorset Square Hotel. I didn't have a chance to meet Amber before the wedding but I knew that with Emma styling her, she wouldn't be short of fabulous. In fact everything was fabulous; from the Philip Treacy hat, to the Christian Louboutin heels, the bright red Donna Karan frock which hugged every gorgeous inch of Amber's 7 month bump - even the make-up artist Kat who looked eerily similar to Frida Kahlo. The wedding was all super informal with the bride and groom getting ready in the suit together before walking arm in arm the 5 minutes to the registry office. After the ceremony it was back to the hotel for high tea in The Potting Shed Bar and Restaurant, cocktails and feet up before an evening meal in the same location. The team behind the hotel were fantastic and the food delicious. If you are ever looking for an extremely good value London hotel then this place is really great, the rooms are quirky and original and it has all the intimacy of a small boutique hotel.
