Wow. Wow wow wow wow wow. That’s very nearly all we have to say about Ariana’s epic Bat Mitzvah at the impressive Old Billingsgate in central London, planned to perfection by the talented team at Dream Events.
It wasn’t just the location that raised eyebrows, as guests entered this landmark building against the backdrop of Tower Bridge. It was the sheer scale of this mega-party, the mermaids, the gorgeous Havdallah ceremony, the incredible canapés served on various nautically themed vessels by Alison Price & Co, the other-worldly floral displays by celebrity florist Simon Lycett, the giant ice bar with sculptures all around it, the hidden ‘underwater’ dessert buffet, the ‘Carpool Karaoke’ video created around the world by Gavsy Creative Media, the enigmatic brilliance of Muzika, the glamorous under-water sea creature dancers, the elegant ‘AB’ branding across the event by Ruth Kaye Design, the suave style of Master of Ceremonies Jon Stone, and the live performance by Charli XCX who came straight from Glastonbury Festival to Ariana’s Bat Mitzvah.
Beyond the many obvious incredible parts of this celebration, there was something far more impressive happening, and that was the bond between Ariana and her family, both immediate and extended. At the centre of this whirlwind of colour and music were a family who would clearly do anything for one another, and that was a very beautiful thing for our team to witness. Each member showered Ariana with love, affection, and the best of wishes for her future as a Jewish woman. We thank them for allowing us to be there, to be part of their joy and capture moments that can live forever.
Without further a do, we invite you to sit back and enjoy this spectacular occasion…
