A beautiful, opulent and colourful summer celebration.

Lighting, styling and props were used to create a plethora of sensory delights in Manchester Gardens, Marylebone where we created a night to represent all the wonder of the souk. Guests were treated to a fusion of typical Moroccan/Egyptian fayre mixed with quintessential British bites for a kitch and playful twist. Low tables, seating & lanterns with vibrant patterns and colours lined the tented ceiling and there was live entertainment to accompany the majesty of the theme.

Guests were greeted by a sitar player whose beautiful soft live music drifted across the garden during the evening. Two life size lanterns indicated the entrance to a pathway lit with smaller lanterns. Gold chesterfield sofas and brass drum seating with colourful cushions & low coffee tables and low cushion seating arrangements ensured there were plenty of places for guests to relax. A burnt-orange stretch tent was the visual focus which also housed our bar.

Catering was provided by Jimmy Garcia who worked with us to create a visual and culinary treat which included canapes such as butternut squash falafel & burnt onion hummus served from smoking trays and bowl food such as Moroccan spiced & pressed lamb shoulder along with yellow pepper ‘sand’ puree & chicken drumlet. Our desserts generated gasps of admiration from guests as homemade Turkish Delights were served from wooden boxes whilst ‘starry night’ consisted of black plates filled with chocolate truffles and chocolate and honeycomb truffles, rolled in edible glitter to resemble planets, homemade aero chunks were made to look like northern lights and freeze dried raspberry ‘meteor showers’ gave a colourful platter of a starry night.
