Adland's latest merger

There are broken hearts all over adland this week. CHI & Partners' executive creative director, Jonathan Burley, and the Leo Burnett creative Laurie Smith are now honeymooning in the Seychelles after getting hitched in a country house in Oxford.

Needless to say, the wedding party was wall-to-wall adlanders, but the house was also full of lions, giraffes and zebras - thankfully all stuffed - which added to the opulence. Let's hope that Burley, always prone to a risque Private View, didn't lower the tone in his wedding speech.
