The Langham Sydney Celebrates Spring Racing Season

The spring racing season kicked off in style at the elegant Langham Hotel in Sydney with the launch of The Season by Laurent-Perrier champagne.

Guests were welcomed with Laurent-Perrier Brut on arrival at Galileo Restaurant before enjoying a host of delicious canapes, freshly-shucked oysters, and a delectable selection of cheese. Laurent-Perrier 2004 was served throughout the night as guests and celebrities mingled surrounded by beautiful flower settings by Pearsons Florist.
