The Ibiza Chic Bridelux Summer Party at Hotel Cafe Royal
Melanie Anglesey | 6 months ago
Imagine your dream wedding party. Bridelux's took place under the gilded ceilings of @hotelcaferoyal last Wednesday with the cream of the nation’s nuptial creatives assembled for the Bridelux Summer White Party. The room was dressed in finery by @hotelcaferoyal with frothy arrangements from @balloonistaco and floral extravagance by @jamieaston with @davidcphotography and @bloomsburyfilms capturing the scene.
As my first bridal blog assignment for Bridelux, it was an opportunity to mingle with exclusive wedding experts engaged in making your special day the experience of a lifetime.
I was delighted by the ingenuity and refinement of attendees who among them make cakes, jewels and party favours as well as flower crowns, lingerie and make-up. The cream of bridal couturista displayed their finery and we delighted in the dulcet sounds of an all-female three-piece band courtesy of the world-class Urban Soul Orchestra.
Guests hailed from all parts of the country from Scotland to Cornwall, as well as overseas, proving the Bridelux reach will truly go to the ends of the earth to finesse your perfect marriage.
CEO James Lord had a special surprise for us all by announcing the inaugural Bridelux Industry Awards, which offer a chance for wedding professionals to celebrate the success of their colleagues.
Bespoke tie maker Shaun Gordon won a prize on the night to attend the Bridelux Symposium in October.
Shaun said of the evening: "It was lively with an air of elegance and a diverse gathering of the bridal industry’s finest expertise all under one roof - this is the way to celebrate a summer party indeed!"
Here are some thoughts about the evening from some of the lovely people I met:
“It’s always lovely to connect and catch up with artists and vendors in the luxury wedding industry, and Bridelux really treated us to an amazing evening at one of our favourite London venues.”

“It was such a lovely evening in a stunning setting and really a fantastic opportunity to mix with some wonderful industry professionals. It was a really fun vibe especially with the dress code being Ibiza Chic and a good excuse to make an outfit!”
