It was a spectacular night of glitz and glamour at the prestigious Aesthetics Awards 2018. Professionals from across the specialty gathered at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel in central London to celebrate another successful year with more than 800 attendees. Guests had their picture taken at the Aesthetics Awards press board, caught up with friends and colleagues, and enjoyed drinks and live music from singer songwriter Alice MC at the networking event, before moving to the beautiful ballroom for a delicious three-course dinner.
Amanda Cameron, the Editor of the Aesthetics journal and Aesthetics Awards judge welcomed guests to the ceremony, thanking the sponsors, judges and voters for their support. She also introduced this year’s comedian and host, Russell Kane, compère Jon Briggs, the original voice of Apple’s iPhone assistant Siri, and the chosen charity of the year, the British Red Cross. Guests then enjoyed a hilarious comedy set by Russell Kane featuring bespoke aesthetic-related jokes that kept everyone entertained. Dianne Burkhill, marketing manager at Syneron Candela UK Ltd, said of Kane’s performance, “The comedian was great, I think it’s important to really jolly the crowd along – he was excellent.”
