The Langham London is one of the world’s premier luxury hotels. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of their invention of the afternoon tea they launched a service in partnership with Wedgwood to create the finest afternoon tea in the world.
To help with the launch they commissioned me to create three online video promos. The Langham were kind enough to let me behind the scenes at their hotel to see the staff use their world class skills and dedication to bringing the very best experience to their guests. I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon in the kitchen of world-renowned pastry chef Cherish Finden, who can currently be seen judging in the BBC’s Bake Off Creme de la Creme.
After witnessing the kind of behind the scenes work that goes into the guest’s seamless experience, I concluded that this was the story to tell with the promos.
These promos were in competition with promos commissioned at the same time by other branches of The Langham worldwide such as Chicago and Sydney. The promos I produced for the London branch were chosen as an example of best practice in online video PR by the Langham Hospitality Group head office in Hong Kong, and used to promote The Langham brand worldwide.
