Hi, I'm Chris Adnitt - a full time events manager and party planner. I started running music and nightclub events in London back in 1994. Over the next ten years I managed, organised and marketed events at venues such as The Scala, Plan B, Sosho, The Clinic, Bar Rumba and Mass. I worked alongside some of the biggest names in music such as Groove Armada, Danny Krivit, DJ Harvey, Joey Negro, David Holmes, Faze Action, Boy George and Norman Jay MBE.
In 2004 I opened Number 22 tapas restaurant in South London and created Casa Catering - a specialist Spanish Catering Company. I spent the following ten years working closely with chefs and wine & cocktail consultants creating exciting menus and drinks lists. With Casa Catering I managed and catered at a wide range of events - from dinner parties for 10 guests through to black tie balls for 500+ guests. I also set up a street food paella company and worked on some of London's best food markets as well as at festivals across the UK.
Since closing Number 22 and Casa Catering in March 2015 I have been working as a freelance event manager for some of London's best catering companies and pop up restaurant operators. I work on a wide range of events from weddings to music festivals, corporate events to parties in private residencies. I work with private clients on parties and as a wedding planner for couples who need a helping hand. I also supply wine to private events and weddings.
I have spent the last 10 years managing and organising weddings both large and small.
My passion is working with creative couples who want weddings that are out of the ordinary. I have a background of running weddings at a range of venues including warehouses, museums, galleries, marquees, barns and fields in the 'middle of nowhere'
I offer a full event planning service - I source the best caterers (or street food traders if required), provide staff, supply furnishings and equipment, advise on decor, photographers, florists, DJs, soundsystems, bands and other entertainment. I also run a bespoke wine supply service to match your chosen catering.
I can advise on venue choice and work closely with venues and suppliers to ensure the very best service and price.
My aim is to be your 'one stop shop' and to take care of the nitty gritty of your big day whilst you concentrate on the fun stuff. Please do get in contact for a no obligation chat.
From 'rave' nights in warehouses and archways to Christening parties at private residencies, there isn't a style of party I haven't organised! If you're looking to put together a special celebration, please don't hesitate to get in contact for a no obligation chat.
I can organise catering services, cocktail bars, supply wine (at wholesale prices*), marquees, DJs, soundsystems, bands and other entertainment.
I provide a full planning service as well as an event management service on the night.
From product launches to company summer parties, charity balls to lunch meetings - there are a huge range of corporate and charity functions that I can assist with.
I provide catering services, entertainment, bar services, cocktail bars, staff and can advise on venue choice. How about a wine tasting or a visit from a craft beer brewer? A festival style fun day? A gourmet lunch in the comfort of your offices? Please don't hesitate to get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Using a fantastic network of wine merchants, I supply unique and boutique wines to weddings and private functions at a wholesale price*. I have over 10 years experience of creating wine lists and am able to help you build the perfect vinous match for your celebration meal. I will organise tastings where necessary and delivery to your venue. I will then ensure that the wine is served correctly by the serving staff at your event.
I can also organise tasting events with guest experts and wine makers on request.
Please contact me to discuss the wine list for your event.
*Wine supply is subject to my standard management fee.
As a party & wedding planner / events manager I have been lucky to work at some of London's most incredible venues. They include Trinity Buoy Wharf, Brixton East, The Geffrye Museum, Shoreditch Studios, London Museum of Water and Steam, Clissold House, Bloomsbury Ballroom and many more.
As well as private clients, I also work freelance for a selection of fantastic catering and events companies. Recent projects as a freelance event manager include managing Motion Picture Supperclub, the hospitality tent at Lovebox Festival 2015, a wedding at Windsor Castle, managing bars and food at Letters Live, and more weddings, private parties and corporate functions than I can count!
