After the wedding, the party!
Back up to London with Vicki and Damien the day after the fantastic wedding, and this time to their gorgeous house in Balham. Back once again with the terrific Louise Perry Weddings and her team of Carly and Natalie. 80 guests fitted perfectly into the house and garden and were treated to superb music from Jay Marsh and stunning food from Eloise and her team at Kalm Kitchen. That’s pretty much a dream team right there.
Vicki and Damien had spent the night back at The Connaught, and arrived looking just as good as the day before – Vicki again in that sublime Jenny Packham and Damien again looking ludicrously good in another suit. This is what cycling does to you, people. It helps make you look this good. Elegance and class to the fore once again.
With the girls from Kalm waiting outside with drinks, cars arrived and deposited the guests for the afternoon and evening to come. Smiles everywhere. Vicki and Damien are truly rich with friends. Jay’s music drifted between the conversation and laughter, and endless food came from the wonderful chefs below. A first dance that Damien knew nothing about, with Ella joining him and Vicki. A beautiful moment for a beautiful family.
This was once again a privilege to be at. I like Vicki and Damien a lot. They’ve done well for themselves through hard work. There’s no artifice, no edge. Just warmth and a welcome for all. Thank you for having me there for the two days. It was an honour.
