Happy Valentines Day - Mark Niemierko and Browns Bride's illustrious Valentine’s Party

Mark Niemierko and Caroline Burstein were such gracious hosts at their joint Valentine’s Party held at Brown’s Bride, and I can’t thank them enough for their wonderful hospitality.

As promised from my sneak peak, I have shared a few images of the fantastic event below from David Willems Photography and video from Allora Visuals, but in a ‘homage’ to both Mark’s and Caroline’s (mine too!) love of Oscar de la Renta bridal gowns, I couldn’t resist putting together an ‘Oscar’ inspiration board featuring the incredible design talent of certain members of the guest list including Andrew Prince, Peggy Porschen and Rob Van Helden, I hope you like it!

It was a delight to discuss luxury bridal fashion with Caroline and as such a fan of their wonderful gowns, it was every girls dream to see the magnificent creations!

Caroline is the esteemed creative director behind Browns Bride which opened in 2004 to bring the Bridal collections of some of the leading names in fashion under one roof.  Browns exclusively represents some of the biggest names in Luxury designer Bridal Wear in the UK, including Oscar de la Renta, Monique Lhullier, Peter Langner, Marchesa and now Vera Wang.  Caroline and the Brown’s Bride team will shortly be opening the doors to their exclusive Vera Wang Boutique on Brook Street, perfectly located opposite Claridge's. Niemierko’s  top tip – “Buy your Vera Wang wedding dress then celebrate with a Bellini at Claridge's Bar.”

At the exclusive Valentines Party, Mark effortlessly managed to look so dapper in his evening attire. Niemierko is one of London’s most well respected wedding planners and has planned weddings for Russian oligarchs, premier footballers and society couples.  He has enjoyed a long and enjoyable association with Browns Bride and commented“Browns Bride aside from housing some of my favourite designers such as Oscar de la Renta and Peter Langner, offer a first class service with style and class.  From the moment my Brides step through the door they are spoilt and welcomed into a Bridal heaven!”

It was a pleasure to meet with old friends from the wedding industry including esteemed photographers Julia Boggio, Keith Appleby and Catherine Mead, couture cake designer Peggy Porschen, talented jewellery designer Andrew Prince, wedding stylist and creator of specialist interior design wedding gift list’s, Chelsea Bidwill and wedding bloggers extraordinare Kat aka Rock n Roll Bride and Annabell from Love my Dress.
