It was canapes and champers galore a couple of weeks back, when Olivier Laudus opened the doors to its new studio in the heart of London.
Olivier and Sangeeta were joined by a number of press, bloggers and fellow wedding industry friends as they showed off the new studio which is based within the award-winning Jordan Burr hair salon, just a few minutes’ walk from Bond Street tube (www.jordanburr.com). The stylish salon has a fabulous reputation for friendly and professional client care and has won a wealth of awards for its work in the past, and Sangeeta and Olivier told me they couldn’t think of a nicer environment to welcome their brides.
“We love having the opportunity to meet our clients and give them the personal care and attention that they deserve,” adds Sangeeta. “We’re also really looking forward to new collaborations with the Jordan Burr salon.”
And the studio is certainly a sight to behold. In keeping with Olivier Laudus’ chic and contemporary feel, it’s decorated in black and cream flock wallpaper with luxurious seating, pretty blooms and even a vintage-inspired dresser. Brides can choose to try on any of the beautiful accessories on display, as well as discuss their bespoke needs with Sangeeta or Olivier for their forthcoming wedding.
In true London style, the party got off to a great start with a red carpet and a glass of champagne welcoming guests on arrival. Delicious canapes were served throughout the evening (I can vouch for how amazing they tasted – I ate more than my fair share) and specially commissioned luxury cakes from Janet Mohapi-Banks (www.janetmohapibanks.com) finished off the chic theme perfectly. When asked to create something modern that would fit with the black and cream colour scheme of the studio, Janet presented the team with these stunning miniatures made using edible diamonds. And they tasted wonderful. At the end of the night, each guest took home a goodie bag that included a great selection of hair products from Matrix and Indian-inspired chocolate favours from Devnaa (www.devnaa.com)
Well done to everyone who helped make the evening a success, I for one had a brilliant time.
