Word reaches me that one PR consultant is about to have the tables
turned on her on the occasion of her wedding.
Emma Hubbard, a healthcare specialist at Charles Barker is marrying
Richard Gaisford, a reporter on ITV’s regional news programme London
Tonight near Chichester this Saturday.
I hear that Emma’s father, an ex-Army officer, is organising the whole
wedding as though it were a PR campaign.
One source told me: ’Emma’s father has a very low opinion of PR and
media people so instead of organising the wedding like a military
operation he is determined to prove that it’s not that difficult to
orchestrate a PR effort.’
Hubbard senior has contacted the local press, the Chichester Echo, in an
attempt to generate coverage and is handling all the speech writing and
interviewing of guests to provide a record of the wedding.
This is not the first time the Hubbards have kept it in the family when
handling media campaigns. Hubbard herself has worked with her intended
on a broadcast campaign for a dog charity where she handled PR, Gaisford
did the reporting and his father acted as cameraman.
I’m afraid I must protect my sources on this story but they’re not bad
