Kerrie Hess for Laurent Perrier Opening Event at Langham Sydney

Our recent opening event to celebrate the very special Limited Edition Curvee Rose Champagne with was held over a gorgeous afternoon tea at the delightful Langham Sydney. Pastel florals and canapés in line with the Spring theme of our limited edition box made the afternoon even more special. We couldn’t have wished for a more beautiful Spring setting.

Whilst very much looking forward to the launch, speaking at events is the one thing that always makes me feel terribly nervous! (I would definitely rather paint anything live than give a speech!) That said, I always enjoy the moment once I am a few seconds into the speech itself. Short and sweet is always my rule!

Once the speeches are over (yay!) I can have a glass of Rosé Champagne too and really enjoy the event. My date today is a good friend and photographer Grace Alyssa Kyo who helped me zip into my Rachel Gilbert dress before the event, and avoid a wardrobe malfunction with a last minute safety pin! Always travel with safety pins and a back up outfit on work trips. Always!

I am so proud to be celebrating this special release at the event. I find out during the speeches that this limited edition collaboration is the first ever for the house of Laurent Perrier anywhere in the world since the beginning of the company in 1812. I actually didn’t know this and really enjoy the moment. When life is often about moving on to the next thing straight away, I actually let this little fact sink in and really enjoy it.

After the event I am back into my jeans and sneakers with about half an hour to just relax at Langham Sydney in the quiet and calm lobby. (Such a gorgeous space!) My car arrives and its back to the airport…
A new creative day will start tomorrow.
