This was a very special Christmas party brief. The event was for a mixture of British and American guests, some of whom were coming over from the States especially. The brief was to come up with a very special venue which would dazzle the guests. We had the perfect idea and the client loved it. We hired St Paul's Cathedral for the evening and transformed it into an intimate and beautiful dinner setting.
We hired the crypt which is below ground level and used our highly skilled production team to light this area using golds and oranges to warm the setting and create a perfect reception space.
On arrival, guests were treated to a very special musical performance by the St Paul's orchestra. Then they made their way downstairs to enjoy champagne in Nelson’s Chamber, whilst a harpist performed. Dinner was then served in the Crypt and guests enjoyed sumptuous food by one of London’s finest caterers, before moving on to another venue for the after party.

'Wow', such an amazing event. We will be talking about this one for years to come!
