I brushed my hair, put on my fancy pants and took myself off to The Savoy Hotel in London to meet Bruce Russell, their resident Wedding Expert and creator of The Bridal Room.
Bruce was a delight, He’s passionate about the industry and gave advice that was relevant to couples of any budget… Sure Bruce usually assists couples, who shall we say, purses are probably a little heavier with coin than most, but he has 18 years of event planning experience and you’ll never guess what his first job was!
(I’m not going to tell you…listen to the show, it’s fabulous)
Aleisha’s recommended Book to read to take your mind off wedding planning
Not that Kind of Girl:
As if Lena need my review to sell any more copies of this book, but bloody hell it’s enjoyable…one of those reads that you want to devour but then hold back because you don’t want it to end. Poor Rich, trying to read his book in bed each night gets tapped by me, interrupting him, reading out my favourite bits, and there are SO MANY!
Look, it’s obvious I’m a fan but with Girls, Tiny Furniture and now this book, no pressure on Lena but she’s really shaping up to be a big influence on this
generation and she deserves it.
“Here’s what I have to say about being married: someday you will look at him, hating him with every fiber of your being, wishing that he would die the most violent death possible. It will pass.”
