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

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.

Dalston Converted Pub Wedding

After a long venue search across London, the last stop was this hidden gem of a space. Instantly it was a match. Brief was to find the perfect mix of two cultures.. Austrian and Portuguese and ALL the many countries they have lived in and travelled to.
