We have planned everything from intimate Tuscan weddings to luxurious birthday parties in London ballrooms, making sure that every single detail is tailored to the needs and tastes of each client. As well as working closely with private clients, La Fête consults for high profile corporate clients’ events, including the Glamour Beauty Festival and The BARDOU Foundation’s International Women’s Day 2018 Gala.
Over the last few years, Charlotte has become a go-to source for high-profile wedding commentaries, as seen in Daily Express Online for Pippa Middleton’s wedding. We have also appeared in, amongst others, Yahoo! News, Evening Standard Online, Rock My Wedding, Stylist and Zank You.
Charlotte innately understands her clients’ needs and is able to visualize and associate an infinite range of colour palettes and aesthetics. This is one of the reasons why La Fête regularly spearheads its own styled shoots, bringing together the best in the business and creating original images and films. Our photoshoots have appeared on key blogs, such as Wedding Chicks and in leading print titles, such as Brides Magazine UK and in the Wedding issue of Vogue Japan.

Isabel & Victor, Extravaganza at Aynhoe Park, 2018
“The first time I met, Charlotte I knew that she was the right person to work with me on my wedding. My vision was completely unconventional, but she was there throughout the whole process, from finding special cookies to searching for neon lights on eBay, always finding solutions while sticking to our budget. Our wedding weekend was a dream: I didn't worry about a thing and all of our guests were so impressed with her and Emily: DREAM TEAM!Sent on 03/12/2018
I would trust any party or event with La Fête!”
Christophe, Surprise Birthday Party Guest
“In February 2011, Charlotte took full charge of the organisation of my aunt Jeannette’s 90th birthday. 60 guests from all four corners of Europe were brought together by her in order to celebrate the event in a castle on the outskirts of Barcelona. Charlotte took care of everything and everyone; reservations, transport, catering, music, shows, photographer, videographer, fireworks, dedicated website, etc. Everything went to perfection; the 60 guests and the birthday girl have all kept an imperishable memory of the event.”Sent on 27/09/2018
Charrlotte De'Davis, Founder of The BARDOU
“When I first met Charlotte, we immediately hit it off and I knew I wanted to work with her. Whilst organising The BARDOU Foundation’s International Women’s Day gala in March 2018, I saw Charlotte’s resourcefulness, efficiency, honesty and creativity. I knew that our event was in safe hands and I thoroughly enjoyed working with La Fête. I will be happily entrusting Charlotte with our upcoming events.”Sent on 27/09/2018
