dramatic wedding

The wedding of one of our own event designers, Keith Gawronski, and his husband Darcy, was featured in the beautiful Weddingbells Special Edition annual magazine this year. The gorgeous reception, inspired by Keith and Darcy’s love of the ballet and opera, was catered by Couture Cuisine and Chef Arpi Magyar at the National Ballet School […]

heartwarming party

On Friday night, we catered a lovely housewarming party. We love getting involved in such important life events for our clients, and it’s especially heartwarming when they rave about our work! The guests were welcomed with crystal flutes of Veuve Cliquot – fitting, as the colour scheme mirrored the orange-yellow trademark Cliquot label. As the […]

having a ball

We spotted these amazing globe-shaped lights on Design*Sponge and had to share. We think they would be beautiful, unexpected, and practical for an outdoor evening event. Reminiscent of giant snowballs, they would also be lovely for outdoor holiday decor.

colour my world

This week, we sat down with wedding expert Angela Desveaux, Editor-in-Chief of WedLuxe magazine to discuss a very hot trend in wedding attire. Brides marrying in a red cheongsam have this trend down pat, but western brides are just discovering that a little (or sometimes a lot) of colour can elevate wedding attire from the […]

fit for royalty

Our home venue, Graydon Hall Manor, has taken part in a sumptuous photo shoot inspired by the upcoming royal wedding. We were so excited, we couldn’t wait until the 29th!
