Diary: Having it away day led to a proposal

Relations between PR giant GCI and healthcare agency Red Door Communications have just got cosier.

Red Door bosses Catherine Warne and Julia Tollis both used to work at GCI Healthcare, as did associate directors Mark Sudwell and Catherine Devaney.

But staff CVs aside, marital ties too now link the two consultancies because, we can reveal, Tollis has wed GCI London board director Rhodri Harries.

The pair first got together after an away day in 1998 near Melton Mowbray, Tollis tells us.

She adds: 'It was a day of outdoor team-building activities, followed by a black-tie dinner and overnight stay. It must have been all that fresh air.' PRWeek was delighted to peruse snaps of the PR pair's happy day, but sought an explanation for their cake (pictured). 'It took Rhodri five years to pop the question, which he did in the back of a black cab on Albert Bridge on my birthday,' says Tollis.

The old charmer.
