Foodie Stylish Relaxed Colourful Winter South London Wedding

Wow, it's taken me a while to get around to blog about this wedding. Back from Feb and my last event at Brixton East - my spiritual event home. Such great memories from this gem of a venue. Sad to see it go, but pleased to finish on such a high! 

What a joy it was to work with Rachel & Jack! They trusted me to deliver their vision in full and helped them put their dream day together. Read their testimonial below which says it much better than me. Thanks to my brilliant team and suppliers working hard on the day xxx                                                                                                 

Hi Dita, just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for helping us transform our ideas into reality, and for your (not insignificant) part in creating the wedding we envisaged.
From the day we met you after falling in love with Brixton East, we both knew you were exactly who we needed on our team!! 
You understood implicitly what we meant when we said we didn’t want our day to be too ‘weddingy’, and guided us through the potentially daunting world of a dry hire wedding with such expertise, that all notions of stress were taken away!                                                  
Whilst we maintained total creative control (something incredibly important to us as we wanted our wedding to reflect us) your partial planning service saved us from hours of googling and hassle, and resulted in you finding us the most incredible chef, who couldn’t have met our brief any better (literally the best food I’ve ever eaten and a view echoed by all our guests).                                                                                                                                
It also took away the need for us to organise the bar or staff (jobs we didn’t really want!!), and again resulted in the most professional, brilliant team looking after us on the day, with fab service from beginning to end.                                                                                                
You were always available, but never pushy (no mad wedding planner vibes here!!!), and having you around to co-ordinate deliveries and suppliers on both the prep day and the wedding day meant that everything flowed seamlessly and we honestly didn’t have to worry about a single thing except for getting married and enjoying ourselves (which we did immensely!!!) We literally couldn’t have created such a smooth running, relaxed, perfect wedding without you, so thanks a million!! Keep doing what you’re doing! 

Lots of love,
Rachel and Jack xxxxxx

Airstream Pub-tastic Drag Queen Fun Brixton Wedding

What I love about weddings is the sense of FUN my couples have and bring to the day. And no one have more fun together and with their friends and family than Gem & Mike. These two are a not stop laughing duo ... and boy was their wedding back in Feb (before snowmageddon!) one of the best. It had it all! Beautiful venue, great tasting food and drink and a full on drag queen DJ. They are still talking about this one xx

"From day 1, Dita was amazing in helping us to plan and co-ordinate our wedding day. From our first meeting (when we suddenly realised we actually didn't know where to start with a dry hire venue!) and in the build up to the big day- she was a font of knowledge and  inspired ideas- helping us navigate all the intricacies required with a sense of calm, yet the perfect amount of excitement that comes with planning a wedding! The day itself was INCREDIBLE, and we still have people saying it's the best wedding they've ever been to. There is no way we could have pulled off the day we had without Dita's skill, planning and direction, and it really was the Best Day Ever........"

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.

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.

"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.

Summer Loving Kiwi Wedding

Hilary & Aidan...A true Brixtonian couple, multi cultured and wanted to keep things local. Wedding was set at cool Brixton East with all it's industrial charm, food from Dirty Apron (Peckham/Deptford) & Mamma Dough (Brixton). Bar was run by the ever great Travelling Gin Company. H&A have settled in London from New Zealand. Great to see so many family members making the journey over to truly experience their new life here. Everyone had small tasks that made everyone feel involved without it being stressful. 

"Thank you for all your help in the weeks leading up to, and on the wedding day itself. Everything came together well and ran really smoothly on the day. We've had a lot of comments about the bus, and in particular the pimms, so that was definitely worth the brainstorming/ effort! A big thanks to your staff, who were all really nice and very professional."

Winter Warming Brixton Wedding

From the start it was all steam ahead with these two! Both their time together and now fully manifested in their wedding. Party pink from the beginning! - And yes, you did see right... They provided Cards Against Humanity as one of the late night games. Sure, why not! It's just about having fun :)

"Just a quick note to thank you and your team for all your hardwork before and during our wedding yesterday. We both had an amazing day - in large part due to your tireless efforts behind the scenes to ensure everything went well. You were unfailingly helpful and good-natured and allowed us fully to relax and enjoy our day. Also conscious that you were working long after we left in a cab.
We are hugely grateful for your hard work and experience. We truly wouldn't have had such a fantastic day without you and your staff. Thank you so much. We would certainly recommend you to anyone else."
