Coincidences seem to surround IPR marketing and PR head Ann
In May, just as the IPR’s London building was struck by lightning,
Mealor was kicked by a horse on her parents’ farm. She suffered a broken
jaw, broken teeth and deep scratches. She also needed five stitches to
repair the injuries.
Now Mealor, who is getting married on 6 September, has discovered PRCA
assistant director and PR head Wendy Richmond is saying her vows three
days before her.
Mealor’s wedding day has been a long time in coming. A date was

All was finally going to plan until three months ago when Mealor went to
reclaim her wedding dress from the shop where it had been kept in
storage and found it had been sold. Then her jaw was broken and Mealor
despaired of her face getting back to normal before September.
’It hasn’t been that easy but it’s all getting there now,’ says Mealor,
fingers tightly crossed.
