Stylish Street Food Brassband Brixton East Wedding

Met with Abi exactly a year before her and Warrens big day. They weren't planning an elaborate big fancy day, quite the opposite in fact, however, Abi & Warren are all about having a great time so they knew they wanted a personal day filled with LOTS of fun stuff and also knew someone had to manage all of this on the day. And it wasn't going to be them or family and friends. That's where I came in.

My involvement is so different from couple to couple. Most often I do partial planning and coordination. Here I organised the event team on the day to serve the food and run the bar, put the additional A/V package together, booked in their DJ's and took care of all the hire items - and added a few extras from the event kit like brown paper and plenty of church candles! 

A&W's first date was at The Joint in Brixton Village so they wanted to recreate that special moment at their wedding. Everyone loved the informal setting and the tasty buns and sides.

Abi lived in New Orleans for 5 years (love that place so much!) - when booking a band, it only came naturally to pick a Brass Band - Brasstermind were brilliant and following by top East London party DJ's. 

Brixton East 1871 is such an incredible venue. Unusual and packed with interesting features. We had such a fun day looking after these two lovebirds and all their guests.

Vintage Style Autumnal Stoke Newington London Wedding

I love weddings all year around, but there's something really special about Autumn and winter weddings where you can really play with cosy autumnal colours for the design of the tablescape. A throwback to one of last year's lovely winter weddings.

Bec & Matt got me involved to work with them to create their autumnal vintage inspired Nov wedding in one of London's many unusual locations. This Hackney Venue is dry hire venue so everything is brought in, we hanged festoons to create a cosy vintage fairground feel, beautiful flowers and installation from Herbert & Isles and together with my bar team we designed last minute tasty winter his & hers cocktails.

Fun-tastic Graffiti Backdrop Brixton Summer Wedding

I loved nothing more than working with couples where the brief is just a lot of FUN. These guys knew what they wanted... a real memorable day with their closest friends and family in an urban setting. Something very different from the traditional weddings setup. They found exactly what they were after in amazing Brixton East 1871. Saturday in Brixton means market and buzzing street life. Love that they brought this local flavour into their wedding pictures.

London Christmas Party Planning 2017

Drawn the short straw and been lumped with 2017's office Christmas party?

With the holiday season coming up and the looming responsibility of pulling off a Christmas party better than last year’s, it’s definitely time to get a move on (there are people out there who actually started in June!). Of course, party planning may be the stuff of nightmares for you, but that’s where we can help.

With years of event experience, we can take the stress out of the festivities by becoming your go-to for unique and unusual venues, delicious catering and the perfect evening’s entertainment, or we can supply you with imaginative ideas to create a bespoke, personal and private party  that’s far more interesting than the cliche shared Xmas do, or your local’s lifeless interior.


Let’s be honest, there’s plenty of dull holiday themed menus floating about during the festive season, with all the usual ingredients making their sole annual appearance.

How about trying something a little different?

If listening to your boss’s karaoke rendition of Celine’s 'My Heart Will Go On' isn’t your idea of a fun night then we’re on the same page. When we put parties together, we can cover all the bases for quirky entertainment - think things like immersive theatre, cabaret performers, cool DJs and bands.

Being in contact with some of London’s hottest young, up-and-coming chefs, a tasty sharing feast menu or creative canapes with a twist is what we love serving at our parties.

To complement our great food our team of handpicked bar and wait staff will be on-hand to serve you delicious cocktails or your drinks of choice.  Of course we cater to any taste and budget with our tailor-made bar options.

All this fun has to take place in a space that matches. Choosing the right venue can be daunting, but whatever the style of your party, we have a list of unusual, blank-canvas venues that will fit your needs.

Scandinavian Minimalist Gothic London Wedding

The reason I love putting together weddings is that I get to meet and work with couples with wonderful personalities and ideas. This wedding was so much fun to plan and by far the most personal! I'll let the images speak for themselves. It truly was a day that everyone will remember and speak about for years to come. Guests commented that it was THE BEST WEDDING EVER! - So happy myself and my team could be there to make that happen. X

My husband and I wanted something different, original and individual which is a tall order for a wedding. However, Dita created a magical day that exceeded all our expectations. She created the most stunning martini bar for our arrival, chose the gorgeous table ware, and went out of her way to make us happy. (Made more difficult by my less than clear vision). Her staff were so wonderful - they really cared about our guests and ensuring that we had a superb day. The food was delicious and just kept coming. Our guests all complimented us on the generosity of spirit that shone from every aspect. Moreover, thanks to Dita, we both managed to remain calm, safe in the knowledge that we were in safe hands. Dita: thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Brixton East Rock n Roll Spring Wedding

Lovely spring wedding and the first of the year! I don't think I have ever seem people laugh so much during the speeches. So much joy for these two lovebirds.. which are soon to be 3! 

Hackney Christmas Party

Christmas parties are always fun. And even more so when they are in a cool, unique venue that feels like someones house. A large warehouse type one that is. 

"Thank you so much for all of your work ahead and on the night of the party! Everyone had a wonderful time and were raving about the venue!!"

Islington Town Hall to Stunning Pub London Winter Wedding

Vics & Mark's stunning Nov wedding in Islington London.

Vics came to me after seeing one of my weddings featured in Rock My Wedding blog and wanted someone she and Mark could trust to look after things for their big day. I also helped them source additional drinks, lighting and decor. They wanted a wedding that truly reflected them and celebrated their loving and long term relationship. 

Hi Dita, I wanted to say a huge and heartfelt thank you for all that you did over the weekend to make our day perfect. Mark and I had such a wonderful time, we were really able to relax and enjoy it all because we knew you were making sure everything was on track behind the scenes.
I really appreciated your calm hand on the tiller at the Town Hall in those final moments! The Drapers looked just perfect, exactly how I'd hoped and so much more - so stylish, warm and welcoming. And the photos, candles and lightbox downstairs were all wonderful extra touches we wouldn't have managed without you. Everyone commented on how effortlessly you kept things moving and how lovely you were. It all felt so well-organised but still relaxed and intimate. Beyond perfect. We can't thank you enough, truly. You're a superstar. Lots of love

Street Food Market Wedding

Street food market bonanza-sparklers-tastic wedding in Maltby St/Ropewalk/Lassco. Dan (Canada) & Katy (UK) just love Maltby St market, and what's not to love, so when planning their UK wedding.. yes, they had a Canadian too... it was clear to them that they wanted their guests to experience something of London that's a big part of their lives. Roll on German sausages, French tartiflette, Mediterranean wraps, South Coast seafood & lots of cheese! One big great party in the unique setting of Lassco, Ropewalk.

Cool 'Pub' Wedding Brixton East

"We would not have had the wedding we'd hoped for had it not been for Dita. Every step of the way she was there to help us and advise us with every aspect of the day.She went above and beyond to ensure it was the best day of our lives. I cannot recommend her and her services highly enough!"

“When we first started planning the wedding, we were very much ‘we can do this ourselves’ – we were so wrong.  Dita Rosted, our planner, is actually friends with the Brixton venue and contacted us directly and as soon as we met her we knew she would be brilliant.  I am somewhat of a control freak and I was able to let go completely and let her do her thing.”

Lizzie & Rich - Stylish May Brixton, London Wedding

Lizzie & Richard approached me for some help with their Sunday wedding. They had a clear vision for the day and just needed that bit of extra help to bring it all together. The table design was put together based on inspiration from a mix of images - from a favourite designer and colour schemes. I loved working with L&R to create their perfect look. The outcome is both stylish and classic and really suited the venue and also importantly the food. Stunning wedding all around.
