Love at fi rst viewingThe venue: Designed by the celebrated Scottish architects the Adam Brothers, 28 Portland Place is one of the fi nest surviving town houses of its type, nestled in the heart of London's West End. Majestic formal rooms have been sympathetically restored to maintain the character and tradition of the house, offering modern luxury and elegant surroundings for any occasion, be it a meeting or conference, a wedding or a Christmas party.The wedding: Somayah and Tim kick-started weddings at 28 Portland Place at the beginning of this year, hosting their ceremony and reception at 2 Portland Place on Saturday 29 January 2011. For Somayah it was love at fi rst viewing and in the run-up to the wedding Somayah took various family members to see the venue. The couple took a relaxed approach to wedding planning and enjoyed their menu tasting just a few weeks before their big day. The availability of a cash bar at the wedding reception, serving wine and other refreshments, was the agreed solution to overcoming the diffi culty of having a 50/50 split of guests who drank alcohol and those who did not. Speaking of the success of their wedding day, the newlyweds said: "Thanks to Wedding & Events Executive Nicola Stoddart, of It's The Agency, together with the team at 28 Portland Place, our wedding day ran smoothly and we couldn't have dreamed up a better day. The exquisite canap├ęs and dishes were beautifully presented and absolutely scrumptious. They were a complete hit with all of our guests." for 28 Portland PlaceBRAND WESTMINSTER
