Oh! Oh! Montenegro!


One of the best aspects of my job is getting to see and explore beautiful locations that I would otherwise possibly not discover.

Montenegro is one of those places. If you haven’t been…move it to the top of your destination list immediately. An idyllic and fascinating country that I quickly fell in love with. We recently produced a very special 40th birthday there. A magical three night affair in July that is still making me smile.

The party was held in Porto Montenegro which is an incredible development developed by Peter Munk in an old Yugoslavian naval base. In the place of massive submarines are now massive super yachts and what is probably the most perfect swimming pool in the world. An infinity pool that blends seamlessly with the vast azure sea, framed by a bronze sculpture that reminds you what a great picture it all is.


The pool, complete with our giant inflatable dinosaur. Every pool needs one of these.



Boys polishing mirrorballs, every pool needs these too…….


Because they are essential if you are going to fill a pool with giant glistening mirrorballs which is exactly what I have always wanted to do.


Waving goodbye to the sun the party ensued with neon palm trees framing the dance floor. Electric dreams.





The gorgeous Michelle Rodriguez who as well as being an incredible actress. Is. The. Best . DJ…Fact.


The incredible Sam Obernik performed in disco appropriate Gareth Pugh with a mirrorball in her hair


The tables were lit with a stretch of nautical inspired buoys suspended by bronze and black rope and filament bulbs.


Swings around the dance floor. Now that’s a good time…


…and how does the perfect party end? Well, when Porto Montenegro throw us a pool party to say thank you! The perfect ending. Thank you PM for the best pool party we’ve ever been to (honestly) and for such a wonderful gesture. We¬†can’t wait to come back!
