Catering is a huge part of any event and it must align with the luxurious atmosphere that you are creating for your guests. Elevate the event’s culinary experience with a menu that fuses local flavours and seasonal produce ensuring a mouthwatering and fitting feast. Your dinner drinks should complement the food, and be paired to perfection so using a well-established caterer is imperative. For drinks receptions craft a sophisticated drinks menu featuring local wines, signature cocktails and of course champagne, no luxury event in France would be complete without it.
Enhancing the ambiance with entertainment will create memories and new experiences for your guests. Whether it’s a classical ensemble, a jazz band, or even a string quartet, live music adds a touch of class to any luxury event.
