1930’s Soirée

by Nathan Rollinson

1930s Soirée 

 


 

Back in 2018, I sat down and ordered myself a coffee at a cafe in Mayfair, London. I remember that it had rained all day long and I dazed away from reality and ended up daydreaming about all the wonderful things about the Thirties as if I had made up my own movie in my head. I spent quite some time thinking about it, yet I pushed the thought away and got on with it.

A few months later, I was invited to go to an opulent event at the most luxurious hotel in London, across from Hyde Park. On that very night, after countless courses of dinner, I retreated into myself for a while until I met someone. Upon meeting this person, I instantly could drew similarities between us and all of a sudden, we both felt the connection. I had met a lovely lady named Rula Komodromos of Rula Parties who is the most fabulous wedding and party planner. Rula was looking all regal in her fine clothing and I recognised her surname which related to Cypriot ancestry, where my family are also from. As soon as I received Rula’s business card I got in touch to see whether we could arrange and meet for a coffee.

At the very beginning of 2019, we finally chose a date to meet and we discussed a vast array of ideas regarding the setting up of a showstopper soirée. We both went through a lengthy number of details, creating and exchanging ideas regarding the theme and glorious little details. Of course, I came to the conclusion that the theme for my 30th would be the 1930s and so, 1930s soirée was born.

After embarking on the countless number of trips all over the UK scouring for the perfect venue, we finally found the ideal place. I wanted to ensure that the location was within easy reach to London, yet not in London. Ultimately, we wanted to create something unique and have the most memorable celebratory weekend. The last venue that I was introduced to was the exquisite stately home of Somerley.  As soon as I stepped foot inside, I knew this was the perfect place to showcase the soirée as the options were endless in terms of what we could do. This venue sits on 7,000 acres of land in rural Hampshire/Dorset. You’ve probably seen this stately home in the period drama, The Crown on Netflix which was filmed at Somerley, and no wonder as it is such a beautiful house to use exclusively for a special occasion.

1828, this is the beginning of the ownership of the Agar family, the 1st Earl of Normanton and through a few generations to today. Wyatt’s splendid house remains slightly more compact yet still sizeable so that it can be enjoyed by Viscount and Viscountess Somerton and their young family. Somerley has a long tradition of offering elegant and warm private hospitality to guests. There are numerous stylish rooms within the house which lend themselves perfectly to parties, dinners and celebrations of all styles. It is set in the heart of private parkland, exclusive hire of Somerley house offers guests ultimate privacy in a quintessentially English Country House with a welcoming, family atmosphere. The House may be hired complete with the use of nine spacious and individually styled bedrooms, making a special celebration even more of an occasion for family groups or friends. Alex, the events manager made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble and the staff at Somerley are so friendly and they will ensure you have a memorable stay at Somerley and treasure it for many years to come.

It was time to send out a formal invitation which was created by a wonderful and prestigious company, Cutture stationery. They created the simply most beautiful bespoke invitation I have ever come across. Cutture is specialist laser-cutting service, producing hand-finished pieces that are works of art.

They created the invitation in a forest green shade with a vintage gold accent and added the volume series as a backdrop which featured Somerley, there were figures dressed in 1930s attire mingling amongst the entertainment too. There was a hidden pocket at the back of the invitation for added details of the venue, dress code, accommodation and transportation on a deco illustration on the paper. Additionally, there was unique calligraphy by Babooche Calligraphy, an artist and creative company that offers various calligraphic art.

The ink was written in antique gold which stood out dramatically on the forest green envelopes. It was truly regal. Somerley kindly offered to loan us their family heirloom, a signet symbol of the Somerley Crest. The traditional wax-sealed stamp imprint was used to seal the envelope which made it rather somewhat, princely.

 

 

 

Arrives in style

 

It was such a glorious day, the sun was beaming down on the ground, illuminating the picturesque scenery. It resembled a painting of a Capability Brown landscape. Cruising along in a classic Morgan Motor down a long sweeping driveway with the view of Somerley from afar, representating a true British aristocratic lifestyle. It was time to check-in at Somerley for a long weekend of partying.

 

An intimate number of guests arrived at Somerley early to check-in prior to their stay and they were given a full makeover by a group of talented hair and make-up artists from Gustav Fouche.

 

 

Country Retreat Look

 

To create a country retreat look, I am wearing luxury British brands to represent a country lifestyle. A wool flat cap from Lock & Co. Hatters (formally James Lock and Company Limited) is the world's oldest hat shop, the world's 34th oldest family-owned business and is a Royal warrant holder.

I wore New & Lingwood’s wonderful collection including, the jacket, cashmere roll neck and suede loafers. Prince of Wales fine woollen trousers (find a similar one from Gieves & Hawkes) and not forgetting the sophisticated vintage-style luxury luggage suitcase and accessory brand, Globe and Trotter, established in 1897. Handcrafted in England for all world travellers, a popular style from back in the day that’s been reinvented into the 21st Century.

 

 

 

Let's get ready...

 

 

Gustav Fouche is a well-known hairstylist. Together with his team, they worked their wonders on the guests and entertainers transforming them into alluring 1930s ladies and gentleman. The guest were then introduced to their bedroom with a personalised named key ring with emerald tassel. Each of the bedrooms had such different character, plush furnishing, chintzy fabrics, antique ornaments and they all came with an astounding view of the grounds.

 

There was extra special attention to detail as each room contained a bucket of Laurent-Perrier champagne along with a personal note, a box of Charbonnel et Walker chocolate, a small flower arrangement and a personalised initial embossed pillowcase from Tielle Love Luxury on the bedding for each guest. This brought a welcoming homely ambience to start the weekend celebrations in style.

 

 

 

Dress to impress

 

 

With an hour away of the Soirée, I dressed up in a regal velvet smoking double-breasted jacket in a hue of forest green which was a real statement piece and a head-turner. It was very comfortable to wear along with the shirt and a bowtie from Turnball & Asser whilst paired with Gieves and Hawkes dinner trouser and with a pair of Jimmy Choo tasselled loafers and spritz myself with a dash of Floris Vert Fougère to complete the look. I felt very spiffing indeed.

The venue in itself had numerous principal rooms which Rula and I created a journey to and from and there was a story to be told within each room. The guests started their journey on the long driveway where they got to see Somerley all lit up, with several flambeaux stands and flames lighting up the drive beaming up to the sky. Once the guests arrived at the grand portico it was flooded with hurricane candlelight lamps and a dazzling vintage Morgan Motor was parked up on the estate looking perfectly poised. A glamorous high-end cabaret and couture duo act greeted the guests to start on their fully immersive experience. These spectacular ladies, J’adore La Vie wowed all of the guests in their show-stopping couture outfits, dripping in an abundance of pearls, feathers, sequins, wearing long satin opera gloves, statement headpieces adorned with ivory feathers and dramatic feather fans. They portrayed such drama at their dressing table with vintage props and were such darlings to all guests upon their arrivals.

Both the inner and outer hallways were filled with plentiful gold palms, a grand feather centrepiece which echoed the aura of the 1930s. Scented candles and 1930s pieces added to the atmosphere. These complemented the matching gilded cornices, the antiques and the furnishings on display.

The front of House staff together with security had to kindly inform guests that all use of their mobile phones and cameras were prohibited until 9pm. I wanted to keep the atmosphere as authentic as possible as technology did not exist in the 1930s. I also wanted to keep it technology free for media purposes. Being mobile phone free allowed the guests to have a truly immersive experience and a wonderful time socialising and watching all the performances in the exquisite setting of a stately home.  This all made the guests feel like they were attending something quite exclusive - and they were!

The models from Snapshot Staffing provided an entertainment experience as they all looked perfectly splendid in their 1930’s attire transporting everyone back in time feeling like they were in a period movie. They greeted guests, took care of their outerwear and lead the guests in their dazzling outfits, long dresses, opera length gloves, black tie tuxedoes, faux fur, dickie bows and exquisite jewels to the sophisticated The Rollinson Bar, which is known as the East Drawing Room.

The bar was filled with plush furnishing, a deco lamp table and a glossy gold bar where several of vintage 1930s cocktails were served up by talented mixologists, it was Not Just A Cocktail. Josh the owner invented classic cocktails which were popular back in the thirties, such as French 75, Mary Pickford, Side Car, Bee’s knees, Elderflower Gimlet, Shirley Temple, Whiskey Sour and a custom-made cocktail that was representative of The Rollinson, containing ingredients made up of Grey Goose Vodka, Martini Vermouth, Blue Curaçao, Fresh Orange Juice, Sugar, Fever-Tree Soda - totally irresistible.

 

Let's drink darlings...

 

 

All of the cocktails were served with premium spirits and wine - Grey Goose, Sipsmith, St Germain, Mirabeau en Provence - Pure rosé and Foile sparkling rosé, Bacardi, Cointreau, Rémy Martin Cognac, Westland Distillery Whiskey, Martini Vermouth, Fever-Tree and Laurent-Perrier champagne. The cocktail menu was written in beautiful vintage calligraphy by Babooche Calligraphy which was striking with a gold leaf foil that reflected the illusion. There were boxes of Charbonnel et Walker's delicious almonds which are coated in milk chocolate with an Anglesey sea salt and cocoa powder dusting scattered on tables in the bar to tempt guests whilst waiting for their cocktail. The cocktails were served with a bespoke black napkin embossed in gold print, ‘The Rollinson Bar’ and with a sleek black drink coaster with ‘R’ initial on it to give it a more personal touch. It was designed by a company called Celebrations Packaging which offer bespoke packaging services and the quality of the napkins felt like fabric.

Most of the furniture and props were exclusively hired from Options Great Hire where you get to hire small or large items, such as chairs, tables, lamps, glasses, tableware and they pretty much have everything at your request. I was pleased to see many of the old school pieces which perfectly fit the era as most venues do not include furnishings due to them being fragile and priceless so it is a great option to hire and safeguard these irreplaceable furnishings.

 

The Champagne Tower

 

The grand reception room as known as the Soirée had a golden dance floor to draw in guests with copious champagne coupes on the round centrepiece that formed a champagne tower. Such champagne coupes were filled up with Laurent-Perrier Champagne pouring down like a gentle waterfall. There were two handsome waiters standing aside offering guests a glass of champagne to start their evening aperitif. The sounds of the jazz echoed in the background, played by a lively band - Flash Mob Jazz which brought jazzy sounds to please the guests creating such a joyful atmosphere. Some of the guests started to dance, tapping their feet, hips moving, hands waving which set the scene as guests being to socialise.

Let's meet the Illusionist 

 

Time flies by quickly when you are having fun and yes there was even more fun to come. The fabulous duo, J’adore La Vie invited guests to the billiard room in the lower ground floor below the principal rooms where they got to see a mysterious illusionist. Sav of Head of Magic wore his elegant velvet and silk robe and a hat from a luxury British brand, New & Lingwood to create an enchanting. classic yet magical look. Sav used deception to create incredible 'magic moments' altering perceived reality and exploiting cognitive blind spots. He certainly wowed the guests by one of his magic tricks - we were left with feelings of bewilderment as we exited the room.

 

Theatre de le Banquet 

 

The clock struck at twenty past eight and the guests all received an announcement as the waiters opened the vast polished doors to reveal the grandest room of all at Somerley, The Picture Gallery. The room was transformed into Theatre de le Banquet where a glorious feast sat atop an extravagant and long dining table. It was a feast for all of our eyes and everyone was overwhelmed in terms of where to start.

The 2nd Earl’s principal interest was to display a vast collection of art with a magnificent Picture Gallery adorned with multiple priceless oil paintings.  Although the 2nd Earl began collecting his paintings from 1816 onwards and acquired the majority of the works by Reynolds most notably from the Marchioness of Thomond’s sale in 1821, it was a few years before he made the decision to add the Picture Gallery to Somerley House. The guests and myself found ourselves in arguably one of the most beautiful settings in England and in an authentic moment that no one could stop talking about it.

 

A Grand Affair

 

The evening emblazoned opulence with overflowing flowers which adorned a gold painting offset with asparagus fern with an accent of burgundy and nude roses and a pale pink spray of roses. The same designs dressed the long table and caught the reflection of the crystal candelabras with burgundy taper candles fit for a positively regal affair. There was a luxury scent of Jasmine and Musk candles in the air provided by the luxurious and oldest British perfumer, Floris. The creative florist designer, Russell, Claire and the team from Blomster Design Flowers effortlessly spent all morning creating and rearranging numerous flowers arrangements for each room which certainly brightened up everyone's mood as flowers are one of the best therapies. Russell paid attention to detail ensuring that delicate flowers were in keeping with the 1930s era.

The table was covered with a large forest green taffeta to create a dramatic and flowing look, whilst allowing the guests to walk around the table freely. There were many mouth-watering dishes which were inspired from a 1930’s menu, which included Hampshire game en croute, confit chicken & leek, Hampshire cheeses, whisky smoked chalk stream trout, pea & broad bean scotched eggs and many more to mention. The catering company, Ginger Catering Company knew how to please the guests and it was absobloodylootely spiffing!

 

 

The Showstopper 

 

You couldn't see a space on the table as everywhere was full of props, food name holders, delicious food, elegant tableware, crystal candelabras, grand flowers, bespoke napkins. And of course, not to forget, this was another showstopper that caught everyone's attention. There was a four-foot celebratory statement cake which was positioned in the middle of the table for all to adore. This cake was filled with emerald hues that represented the popular colour during the thirties, filled with gold accents, flowers, fancy edible jewels which came in several flavours in each of the tiers. This ranged from pink champagne and strawberries, luscious lemon and vanilla ripple. Elizabeth Cake Emporium is recognised as one of the best luxury wedding cake purveyors in the world. Fortunately, the guest got to enjoy the samples and they ohh’ed and ahh’ed during each of their bites. Elizabeth also made some elegant editable biscuits which were far too pretty to eat.

 

 

The Waltz 

 

The sound of the piano echoed throughout the vast gallery, the sensational music played by a dapper pianist, Okiem. He serenaded us with the classical waltz whilst the charming dancers waltzed and glided around the centre table in between the guests, it was the most theatrical of shows. Oh, how I loved watching the waltz, they were swirling around like no one could see them. The elegance of the lady's dresses swooshing, flowing and creating the most beautiful of silhouettes whilst the guests stood in awe and immensely enjoyed the performance.

 

It was like being transported into a magical 1930s dream.

 

 

The Speech 

 

As the music faded away, I delivered my speech in the grand soirée room with two fabulous J’adore La Vie ladies standing beside me and I signed away my speech from my journal. The crowds were filled with laughter, love and tears. I mentioned my upmost gratitude to Rula and countless suppliers, brands and guests for their support and thanked everyone for their attendance which ended in a roar of cheers and claps.

Nathan’s Speech

 

Ladies and gentleman, I want to say from the bottom of my heart, thank you all for attending this spectacular 1930’s soirée. You all look absobloodylootely snazzy!!

Tonight, is the night and I cannot believe it is actually here, a ‘pinch myself moment’ and it’s purely the most opulent theatrical soirée I’ve ever been in. It has been a whirlwind year since I first came up with this idea for my 30th.

Some of you have asked me why the 1930’s? My 30th in the 1930s! Did I get the maths, right? It has taken me a while to figure out the concept and I had to consider how I could make this soirée different from other events.

 

As you know, commonly the roaring twenties are known for The Gatsby period which has been the most iconic themed party in decades. However, the 1930’s are rarely mentioned however, the glitz and glamour were reinvented again after the great depression at Wall Street crash in 1929, first world war ended, Old Hollywood booming with films that were made in the 30’s such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Wizard of Oz and Gone with the Wind, on March 8, 1930, the first frozen foods of Clarence Birdseye were sold in the US. The 30’s were mostly a shadowed decade and so, it is wonderful to showcase the glorious 30’s once again.

This evening, it is not just a celebration but also a community where I want to recognise all of the support I've received in one evening, from family to friends, clients to colleagues, social media to social friends and it's truly been a rollercoaster ride of a journey. Tonight, I want to hallmark the success, celebrations, friendships and loyalty. I want to express my gratitude to you all and thank you for being supportive for all of those years.

 

Family / Friends 

 

Dear all of my family and friends, I cannot thank each of you enough for standing by me for all of these years. You have taught me love, kindness, happiness and supported me since my early days. You have no idea how much you mean to me and I cannot express my gratitude to you. We have created so many memories together and I shall look forward to creating more memories with you all. My family, from the bottom of my heart, thank you all for accepting who I am as I am today, your support and loyalty never cease to amaze me and I am so lucky to call you my family. Even if I haven't seen you that often it always just feels like yesterday, thank you all once again from the bottom of my heart and you all are truly special people in my life.

 

Rula 

 

Rula, my wonderful party planner who's known as ‘The Bee’s Knees’ - What can I say to you Rula. I am utterly speechless and truly amazed by all of your incredible support and the journey we have been through. Back in January 2019, when I was 28 I said to myself, oh, my 30th will be around the corner and I was filled with so many ideas! As soon as I shared such ideas with Rula her face lit up which filled me with excitement and joy and we started planning a soirée like never before. We have been visited numerous venues all over the UK looking for a perfect venue, dealing with brands and suppliers, ideas and details working all hours long over one year and it seemed never-ending at times. We've put blood sweat and tears into this soiree but we have become stronger and closer and I am so lucky to have Rula in my life, she’s irreplaceable. Rula, I cannot express how thankful I am for all of your wonderful support and your kindness over the last year. Tonight is also your night. Please give Rula massive applause on all of her impressive work on this soiree!

 

Suppliers / Brands

 

I want to say thank you to all of the brands and suppliers for your hard-work over the past year and you have proven tonight that this is the best soirée in town, probably actually over the whole globe. From the venue to catering, performances to stationary, production to entertainments. Every small detail has been put into this soirée which will never be forgotten and it's going to be an evening transported back into 1930’s always to remember. Thank you all for your ongoing support and I am so looking forward to seeing what the rest of the evening has in store. You are all so spiffing! I wouldn’t have known you if it wasn’t for Rula and other supporters and I am very grateful for all of your commitment and loyalty. A little reminder for you all if you wish to look further on their amazing works, all their details are stated on the little business cards.

 

Matthew

 

 As saying, save the best for last and that goes to my partner Matthew. I think he’s hiding somewhere…! Matthew, thank you so much for all of your support, being on my side when I’ve on my high and low and you have been able to there for me. You are one of a kind and I am very thankful for all of your support you’ve been supporting me throughout the journey. I am looking forward to spending more quality time with you, less on email and less on phone and embrace life together. Matthew is doing a full London Marathon soon, please wish him all the best! Matthew, I love you. 

 

 

In memory of Derek Rollinson  

 

Before the soirée commences, may I say something most importantly to someone who I have never met. I would like to celebrate this evening in memory of my Grandfather, Derek Rollinson who would have been 87, we share the same birthday.  My grandmother is here tonight and doesn’t she look amazing. She has been telling me all these vivid stories and it feels like I’ve always known him, thank you for sharing these stories with me. He once told my Grandmother that I was terrible when I was a baby, almost wanted to throw me out of the window. I hope I am worth it today!

Happy Birthday, Grandad! Cheers!

Let the soirée begin!

 

 

The Rollinson Dance 

 

As soon I stepped foot onto the dance floor, boom, the music started and famously played, “Puttin’ on the Ritz”. Such dashing dancers from Sergio and this team at Carte Blanche Production lead me back to some of the thirties moves, such as the Charleston. I only practised my dance moves a few hours back before the actual surprise performance. I adored the reaction on guest's faces as they watched us dancing, swirling around, back and forth and with a final lift I was sat up high on the dancers’ shoulders whilst everyone was cheering away. The dancers continued to dance the night away and showed off their impressive thirties dance performances to impress all of the guests and the dancers invited the guests to join them afterwards.

As soon as the dances came to an end, the duo pair, J'adore La Vie made a reappearance in different costumes. They were wearing long fur coats and underneath they revealed outfits covered in millions of sparkles. Their attire was full of exquisite gemstones and dazzling sequins with a long cigarette holder in each of their hands. J'adore La Vie teased the audience with their sensual moves and left guests eager to dance with them.

A talented team behind Burlison created the most beautiful video production with sensational footage of the 1930’s soiree. They ensured that they kept themselves well-hidden and dressed like one of the guests without the guests realising who they were. And so, they were fortunate to follow the immersive experience throughout too. 

 

 

Pose Parlour 

 

There were many more rooms to explore and the guests had the opportunity to wander around and enjoy the staged Pose Parlour in the West Library with a charming photographer, David Wheeler Photography. He encouraged the guests to pose like 1930’s golden Hollywood stars in their heyday with a traditional backdrop and with glorious props such as original 1930 magazines and gramophone. Think Marlene Dietrich, Jean Harlow, Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire and Bette Davis and the guests got to experience what it was like to be in that era. Don’t slouch, neck up, chin on hand, head backwards… action and shot! Some of the guests retreated and found themselves sat down and unwinding with a cocktail in hand, enjoying the surroundings whilst Matthew G Lawrence, the Artist, quickly and naturally drew some portraits of the guests with fine chalks, vintage paper all wrapped up with a velvet ribbon for the guest to take home as memento of their night.

 

Theatre De Sucre

 

Meanwhile, the guests curiously wondered why there weren’t any puddings at the Theatre de le Banquet. Suddenly, another room was revealed and the guests found themselves in Theatre De Sucre, revealing the land of sugar. The table had an opulent fruit tower, adorned with flowers and numerous large urns with grand flowers arrangements sitting proudly which was organised by a skilled florist, Blomster Design Flowers. There were heavenly scented Rose De Mai candles wafting throughout the room by luxury parfum house, Roja to make for a perfect companion. 

There’s always a room for pudding, and we can’t go wrong with Sugar Box desserts. The array of picture-perfect puddings which were carefully crafted to represented a 1930’s scent, flavour and vision. The guests were curious why there was a perfume looking atomiser with a tassel attached sitting on the table. The staff gently guided the guests and demonstrated how to use the perfume bottle and they all ended up having a quick spritz of mouth flavour to freshen up their palette. There were two flavours, elderflower and rose and pear and cardamom mist. Countless of puddings galore and carefully arranged to create a flowing sensational experience and a journey that take you back to your childhood memories. From emerald jelly dressed with gold dust, rose rice pudding, apple and cinnamon crumble, rhubarb and custard, chocolate coconut crunch and the guest were certainly spoilt for choices.  Sugar Box is renowned for its wildest sugar creations and sugar fantasies come to life in the form of couture desserts and puddings and left the guest feeling truly satisfying.

It is time to dance the night away

 

Back to the Soirée room where the guests started to get into their real dance moves, listening to a trio of gorgeous ladies from Belle Noir singing away. The whole stage was produced by a wonderful gentleman, JJ from Eight Ray Music & production who had organised the whole spectacular stage with perfection. Belle Noir was looking all snazzy in their sparkling dresses, which were styled by The Honourable Isobel Kershaw from The Stylist London. The stylist curated several outfits for the singers, waitresses and dancers ensuring that they all looked in keeping with the theme, era and at their best. The party continued on like there was no tomorrow.

 

The End

 

As soon the party was about to end, the music died away into the distance, empty bottles, blowing out of the candles and the light soon dimmed away. The guests and suppliers all had a favour placed out for them to take home, a small box of Rose and Violet chocolate from Charbonnel et Walker for them to enjoy. We bid our farewells, wishing the guest a safe journey back home and the chauffeur whisked some of the guest and suppliers back safe journey back to London. The following morning, I awoke with a smile on my face, oh was it all a dream? It was all a dream. A year of planning and hard work was worth waiting for!

I hope you enjoyed reading this immersive article as much I have enjoyed writing it. It was a wonderful once in a lifetime experience and I want to thank all of the wonderful suppliers and brands who participated in this wonderful event. It was the bee’s knees!

There's an opportunity for you to create your own special event and or the wedding of your dream. I have created a long list of suppliers and brands for you to reach out directly to and I hope this special event inspired you.
