Wedding Ideas Awards 2012

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, those Wedding Ideas Magazine party people at Giraffe Media really know how to throw a spectacular bash. None more so than the glittering award ceremony they hosted at The Brewery, London on Friday 13th January 2012. Kirstie Taylor, owner of sister company Flo & Percy was nominated for an award in the Best Accessories category and although our Queen of Vintage didn’t add another trophy to her already full cabinet on this occasion, our uber talented beauty let down her Goldilocks hair and had an ab fab night, as did everyone at Team Flo & Percy.  The wedding industry glitterarti had turned out in force and jumped immediately upon a plethora of cocktails, were wowed by an ice sculpture Giraffe vodka luge, marvellous ‘how on flippin’ earth do they do that?’ magicians, photobooths for maximum pose striking and vino galore. Rob Deering was the hilarious host who kept the 350 strong guests entertained and spraying Brandy Snaps out of their mouths with laughter.


Congrats to all the winners and bravo to The Giraffe Media Herd at Wedding Ideas.  Special thanks and a whopping well done to you Kirstie for being nominated by the Wedding Ideas readers.
