We’ve had the pleasure of photographing so many unique events in London this year. This Spring, a particularly memorable occasion was a beautiful 1st birthday party hosted at the fabulous One Marylebone. With a venue this impressive, it came as no surprise when the larger-than-life theme was announced: we were going to be in attendance at London’s very own Mad-Hatters Tea Party!

On arrival, guests were greeted by characters from the original book (which incidentally turns 150 this year!) including the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts and Alice in Wonderland herself! The main hall in One Marylebone was truly magical; it had undergone a complete transformation and boasted props that really created the wonderful world to be found down the rabbit hole…

Upstairs, the gallery hosted welcome drinks, a canapés reception and also a bar. Another gallery was crammed with an array of soft play toys and vehicles for young children to navigate themselves around the venue! Our particular favourite details included the dessert table – which featured small, individual ‘drink me’ labelled beverages.

Guests were treated to entertainment that included magicians, jugglers and the visual spectacle of acrobatics, which were perfectly accommodated in such a cavernous venue. The evening was rounded off with Indian dancing to a mixture of bhangra and hindi songs. The musical hits proved extremely popular; the dance floor was filled with guests from start to finish!

With catering by the highly coveted Rhubarb – plus extraordinary design by event planner Zibbi Khan of DBZ Events Boutique, this child’s birthday party really was a superb occasion!
