testimonials

“My wife and I wanted to hold a party for friends and family to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. Hiring a venue would have been too expensive so we decided to have it at home and asked for advice from Purple Lobster Events.  Julie suggested we hire a marquee for the back garden and that this could become a seamless temporary extension to our home for the night. The theme was Las Vegas and the hundred or so people who were invited could not believe the transformation to our home. Julie and Peter managed to fit a roulette table, a bar area, a proper dance floor and a lighting rig into the available space. Even Elvis, who they had also hired on our behalf, was amazed at the attention to detail, and he performs in front of thousands of fans at different venues around the UK. Purple Lobster Events, unbelievable!”

“Our daughter’s naming ceremony was an intimate occasion which we were able to have in our garden at home. Provision had been made to have this under-cover but the weather forecast was so optimistic we decided to go with a simple canopy and had seating around the garden.  Without hesitation, Peter just rearranged the flowers which he had designed for the original idea and placed them on tables in the garden, quickly re-dressed the chairs and adjusted the voile drapes. The effect was simply stunning. Peter was aware that the photos of the day were almost as important as the ceremony itself and he created a venue which had so many beautiful cameos. Our daughter will have fantastic images of the day surrounded by friends and family in a wonderful location. One day we will tell her it was actually our back garden!”
