The word marriage has a nice ring to it!

Putting aside PR for one moment – this is an extra special blog post to announce that our managing director, Nikki Ackerley, married her other half, Ian Gibbon, in a truly wonderful ceremony at the historical and rather magical Loseley Park, near Guildford, at the weekend.

Being so close to Christmas, it really was an amazing atmosphere, and the couple had one of the best days of their lives, which you can probably tell from the smiles on their faces in the photo!

Thankfully, the wedding day went without a hitch, except for the days leading up to the ceremony when a lost dress caused quite a bit of drama! No it wasn’t the wedding dress but another emerald green number, also by designer to the stars Suzannah, which Nikki had intended to wear at a celebratory lunch the day after the wedding.

Arriving back at the office after her final dress fitting just three days before the wedding, she realised that the ‘day after’ dress had disappeared somehow on the way. Thankfully, after a couple of rough nights bearing the elements, the dress turned up a few days later in good condition, in an alleyway near PHM HQ, in what can only be described as a miracle! The full story has been told by Nikki in her editors page of The Guildford Magazine in addition to a list of thanks to all the stupendous suppliers who did a sterling job leading up to and on the couple’s special day.

Congratulations again Nikki and Ian. Love from all at PHM x
