La Fête Bespoke Event Planning


Founded in 2016 by Charlotte Ricard-Quesada, La Fête has extensive experience with the ideation, development and execution of high-end weddings, exclusive events and boundary-pushing photoshoots. 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.

Charlotte’s multicultural background and fluency in four languages enables her to create flawlessly organised events globally, always ensuring they provide once in a lifetime experiences for their clients.

Over the last few years, La Fête 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.

Get in touch today and we look forward to providing you with additional information on our services.

La Fête Bespoke Event Planning

Complete Service

At La Fête, we cover all aspects of organising your event, from planning and designing, to event production and management, ultimately making sure that every detail is perfect. In order to achieve this, we offer new clients a complimentary consultation at a London location of their choice, after which we are able to create a bespoke proposal. We are also happy to travel outside of London and internationally to meet clients, but please note that this would incur an extra charge. As part of our Complete Service we offer: - Expenditure planning - Timeline creation and organisation - Venue sourcing - Supplier sourcing - Administration and payments - Styling and creation - Event day management - Respect of etiquette and traditions - Pre and post-event service

La Fête’s pricing is fully bespoke and tailored to each one of our clients. In order to create the pricing package that best suits your event, we calculate it based on the three indissociable criteria below:
Planning & Design Fee: This fee takes into account time, expertise and creativity. It is a flat fee determined by La Fête after the first client consultation and requires to be paid in full at the time of the Contract Signing.
Production Fee: This fee covers the logistics and overall organisation of your event. Contracts where La Fête is involved incur a fee of 20% of the total contract amount, but please note that with higher budget events, this percentage can be reduced. 50% of the Production Fee needs to be paid at the project’s half way point and the remaining 50% paid no later than 2 weeks before the event.
Event Management Fee: This fee includes the management and execution of your event, particularly in the days before and day of your event. The sum is calculated by guest number, number of venues and dates (Bank Holiday, etc.) and is due 30 days prior to your event date.

“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! I would trust any party or event with La Fête!”

“I don't know what we would've done without the guidance, support and loyalty provided by La Fête. We were never ones for wedding planners, thinking that my husband and myself could handle our event of 150 persons alone, but when we realized that we were both busy with our day jobs and the fact that we couldn't speak Italian (our wedding was held in Tuscany) we finally decided to take up the idea of having a wedding planner involved. Charlotte Ricard isn't just your typical wedding planner – she is literally someone that gets things done in order to not only satisfy the couple (us) but she also made sure that the entire lead up to the event would run smoothly, be it from a logistical stand-point to even those minute details that often the bride and groom might oversee. We can't recommend La Fête enough!”

“I have had the pleasure of working with La Fête on the last two editions of The Glamour Beauty Festival. Charlotte is incredibly efficient, quick thinking and charming. She is just as comfortable working in an office setting and attending supplier meetings, as she is on event days, making sure both brands and guests are happy, while simultaneously resolving a host of unexpected issues. Working with La Fête took a weight off my shoulders and as well as being extremely professional and trustworthy, Charlotte was a true delight to be around.”
