Working an Event: Jamie Laing Meet and Greet

Hello lovelies!

Sorry for my absence from blogging.. I've been super busy recently with work but promise to try harder :)

I thought I'd do a slightly different blog today about an event I worked recently. As you know, I used to work in Cosmetics, primarily in events which involved organising makeup events and hosting giveaway's and competitions. I've really missed that part of my old job so when one of my lovely friends asked me to help out with a meet and greet event I jumped at the chance.

So the evening started with Jamie arriving almost an hour late, but as he drove from Chelsea down to the South we let him off! :)

Upon waiting for Jamie to arrive, I didn't really know what to expect. I have watched the show since the first series so knew what his character was like on MIC, but was interested to see if he was the light hearted, cheeky chappy he portrays on the hit E4 show Made in Chelsea.

There were over 700 screaming girls ready to meet Jamie so when he arrived we had to sneak him into one of the meeting rooms. We had about half an hour to pick his brains about MIC and what it’s like to be born into the McVitie Empire. Jamie told us all about his life in Chelsea and how he’s living with his friend and fellow cast member Andy Jordan, not to mention some super juicy gossip about the show, but I won’t ruin it for you :)

The DJ was downstairs warming up the overly excited girls so it was nice to take some time to have a cocktail and a chat before all of the madness, not to forget numerous selfies :)

At 22:00 we took Jamie onto the stage where he answered some of the DJ’s questions, he seemed quite shy and not as confident as some people might think.

Next we moved into the meet and greet section of the bar. Some of the girls had been queueing for 4 hours to meet him so we made sure they got a lovely picture with him. The time we spent taking meet and greet pictures is a bit of a blur, we had 700 girls who all wanted their picture with him so it was pretty full on taking all the girls iphone’s and cameras for a snap with the Chelsea star.

The evening ran really smoothly and Jamie was a really good sport. It must have been hard work for him having to pose for hundreds of photo’s in the baking hot bar but he remained charming and fun throughout the whole event.

Thanks Jamie!
