So whilst most of you were heading to the bars last Friday, well anyone who didn’t have an event to manage of course, I was on my way to one of my favourite venues in London, Somerset House to see what the Quintessentially Wedding Atelier had in store. 

No I’m not getting married again! Although after my visit it was very tempting to ask Mr Moon if he fancied a little renewal ceremony!
