There is no finer place to be in the weeks leading up to Christmas than at the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge for the Brides Christmas Lunch. It is always the highlight of my Christmas calendar and a date in the diary I always look forward to. From the champagne reception where all the gorgeous girls from Brides Magazine greet their guests, to the exquisite ballroom, all laid out with crystal glasses and silver and white crockery – it’s a sight to behold and not forgetting of course, the fabulous Christmas tree at the top of the stairs. Magical!
And the goodie bags are to-die-for; Jo Malone, lime, basil and mandarin scented candles. It’s going to be a fragrant Christmas at 6 Mortlake Road!
