About Catherine

Catherine started her career at one of London's leading law firms. She loved the challenge of organising high profile events for clients.  People impressed by her events soon started asking her to organise their private parties and weddings.  Catherine soon realised that people were buying into her concept and ideas. As these private parties, weddings and themed events grew, the types of clients became more varied and Catherine was allowed to indulge herself in designing extraordinary theme sets and creating food to match.  Where nothing is impossible, Catherine managed to give clients a truely exceptional experience.  Catherine believes in being:

Committed to pushing the boundaries and creating something inspirational;

Relentless in her attention to detail and to inspiring the wonderful staff she handpicks for their exceptional talents;

Passionate that whatever she organises will be the best you can have;

Thoughtful enough to care about your personal wishes, the feelings of your guests and how your home or venue is treated.

 

Mixed together, all of the above helps to create something truly different.  Catherine very much looks forward to being involved in planning your event.

Catherine's reward comes from seeing her clients smile, laugh and sometimes cry (with joy!), when their special day comes together.

Throughout her life she has been helped along by the kindness of people and is passionate about giving something back.   Catherine has teamed up with MAYA'S HOPE, a non-profit organisation that brings love and aid to orphans. Maya's Hope is small but is totally transparent, non-profit organisation, showing exactly where  the money raised helps children. There are no fat salaries, huge advertising campaigns or overheads. Everything goes directly to where it is needed.

Catherine donates a percentage of her fee from each event to MAYA'S HOPE with £1500 being given so far this year.  This has enabled a new caregiver to be employed for a whole year at The Kalinovka Orphanage in the Ukraine.

After many years working together, Catherine and Guy have successfully combined exceptional events with exquisite food and wine.  

We understand that the basis for good food is good ingredients.  Our food is fresh, delicious and exciting.  Nothing comes out of a packet.  Care is taken to establish the provenance of all our ingredients to ensure the food we create is produced from the best ingredients available. All our ingredients are sourced from local suppliers who share our passion for freshness and quality.  Our meat is free-range and comes from farms with a good track record for consistency and high standards, our poultry comes from reputable sources in England and France, and our fish is delivered fresh each morning from the coast.  We have daily fruit and vegetable deliveries to ensure we are only working with the freshest produce.

Whether it is a canape party or a sit down 5-course tasting menu all our dishes will be based around seasonal ingredients (locally produced where possible).  

All food tastings will be conducted at either The Guildford or Inside Restaurant, Greenwich.

 

Character Hire

Our experienced characters can make your event come to life.

Whether it be a children's party or a themed event, we guarantee to transform and engage your guests.

Our talented characters can be be hired by the hour or as part of your themed event package.

They are most definitely one of our most requested services.

If you have a specific theme in mind then characters can be arranged accordingly.
