We've stepped in to offer catering, decor, entertainment and logistical support, as well as provided photography, staffing and ad-hoc assistance with anything to create a perfect stay for everyone.
On Friday afternoon on arrival, the guests were greeted by our charming oyster shucker and the mixologist, offering them a selection of summer cocktails. The guests were left to explore the garden and refresh after the long trip before proceeding to the dining room for a casual Italian dinner. Executive chef from Cafe Murano offered guests tradition Italian feast, served on a sharing platters, allowing everyone to try as many dishes as they wanted. While adults chatted and enjoyed their night, the children went off to the cinema room.
Next morning started with a breakfast for a classic Russian chef, who served all types of eggs, pancakes, granola bowls and traditional syrniki. Then guests proceeded outdoors, exploring the grounds and gardens of the mansion. Tennis court became the focal point with a midday tournament, while children splashed in the pool and kicked the ball on a football pitch. Waiters offered all guests bellinis and strawberries and cream, to remind them of a Wimbledon experience.
Light al fresco lunch and cocktails next to the pool offered the guests a chance to laze around in the sun. They then retired to their bedrooms to get ready for the evening programme. In the meantime, our team setup the dinner table with lush floral decor and personalized place settings in the marquee next to the pool.
At 6 pm, a team from Michelin-starred restaurant Hide welcomed the guests back on the lawn with selection of nature-inspired canapés. The bar served spritzes and martinis, along with the selection of wines. DJ set the mood with an upbeat playlist while guests posed to a photographer for family pictures.
