UK skin care brand, The Sanctuary invited beauty influencers and professionals to showcase their newly launched Wet Skin Moisture Miracle. The evening ensured guests were shown fine dining as well as a five star overnight stay.
The Client’s Brief
The vision for the event was luxurious and beautiful to celebrate The Sanctuary’s new look. Inspiration was taken from the brand’s packaging and as a result a colour palette of rose gold and orange was used.
All for Love London used candles for a twinkly look and highlighted the golds in the premium feel packaging. Stunning two-tone orange roses mixed with delicate white sweet peas, Queen Anne’s lace and foliage including rosemary, created a beautiful variety of colours.
A long, fluffy and full foliage garland ran along the length of the table and spilled off each end. Beautifully placed throughout the foliage were single roses and candles nestled beneath the garland.
What We Loved
The fireplace was filled with as many vases and candles as possible. The deep orange sweet peas contrasted beautifully with the white flowers used. The geometric candles, gold mirror vases and variety of orange bottles fitted perfectly with the brand style.
The Venue: A Pearl and Pear Review
London’s new hot spot has created excitement throughout the city as they host 9 restaurants, 6 event spaces and a roof top bar and pool. The location is great, right near Bank Station. Head there for great food and fantastic live music.
Even before the evening had started The Ned make it easy to book a table, a simple click online or an exceptionally welcoming phone call will ensure you get the table you desire. Although, we do recommend booking as it fills up quick – and Sunday Feast is at least two-three weeks in advance.
On arrival the only word is ‘WOW’, the high ceilings, plush interior and multitude of restaurants blew us away. Our waiter, Mario seated us at a pleasant table for two with a great view of the live music stage.
We chose to dine at Cecconi’s, The Ned’s Italian restaurant. The menu hosted an array of classics from wood oven-fired pizza, to pasta and luxury delicacies of lobster and rib eye. We delved into a selection of pizzas, choosing two of our favourites so that we could share – Buffalo mozzarella, tomato and basil, and spicy salami and tomato. Both were delicious, oozing with flavour and fresh ingredients, accompanied with a glass of red wine. The menu allows you to explore as much you like, offering a range of sides as well as starters.
For dessert, we thought we’d treat ourselves, and picked a not so Italian classic of profiteroles. A small mountain arrived smothered in chocolate sauce and delicious whipped cream. A treat that was worth every mouthful!
Sunday Live Music
New to The Ned is there Sunday live music and luckily we visited on a Sunday! We were spoilt with the cast from well-known musicals. The track list included Britt Lenting – We Will Rock You, Nicole Raquel Dennis – The Book of Mormon and The West End Gospel Choir.
We can certainly tell what the fuss is about, and already booked to return for Sunday Feast at Millie’s Lounge!
