A Gala Evening

The evening's sparkle will be provided by our host, the wonderful Louise Roe. Louise started her career as the News Editor for Vogue.com and has since written for numerous publications, launched a book, and worked as a TV presenter for different media outlets. The event will also include delicious drinks and canapés, and live entertainment by Stanmer band, an eclectic collection of the UK’s most talented musicians and performers.

To top it all, one lucky couple in love will win their very own wedding which will be planned and managed by leading worldwide event planner Charlotte Ricard-Quesada. The winners will get married, have their reception and fly to Barbados for their unforgettable honeymoon to treasure.
