The stunning floral displays were arranged by Pinstripes and Peonies and the creative lighting and sound was devised by Richard Cohen and his team at Classico Production – who work regularly with many of London’s most prestigious venues. Wold Top Brewery in Yorkshire served a delicious range of their award-winning beers, while Paul Wayne Gregory, celebrating the start of National Chocolate Week, showcased his spectacular chocolates (which launched this week in Harvey Nichols). Rising star Alexander Stewart (whose album All Or Nothing At All was launched last month) and his band entertained guests with a collection of jazz hits.
