And the bride stood in at the last minute!

Hotel La Tour’s very own Sian Brunt made a beautiful – if slightly surprised – bride when she slipped on this gorgeous Jenny Packham gown for a photoshoot.

Her big moment came when our professional model was taken ill at short notice, jeopardising the shoot for Birmingham Dluxe magazine. Sian was there to play the role of a guest in some wedding “crowd scenes” but stepped in as leading lady when disaster struck. She was introduced to model James – her husband for the day – and went through hair and makeup after gamely agreeing to save the day.

Also taking part in the shoot were Hotel La Tour Sales Manager Karen Ward, Head Housekeeper Sadie Sanders, Linen Porter Andrae Edwards, and friend of the hotel Gary Stevenson.

Our friends at Ethos Flowers created a wonderful bridal posy, perfect for a chic city wedding for a modern couple.
