Kim Rix is an event planner in London and the owner of the Savvy Club.  She combines her expertise in planning luxurious and entertaining one-of-a-kind events around England and throughout Europe with her knowledge of the local hidden gems to create personalized and intimate wedding celebrations.

A London destination wedding combines culture, history and tradition.  Interested in a Medieval Themed wedding, complete with castles, ornate wedding attire and a meal of turkey, venison and mutton?  Or perhaps a wedding at the UK Parliament building?  The editor’s office of the Daily Mirror Newspaper in London?   

Kim takes us on a tour of fascinating facts, such as the origin of the white bridal gown dating to Queen Victoria, who refused to wear the traditional bridal attire of bright colors, brocades and other elements of opulence.  Kim provides interesting insights into the Royal Wedding, which will be an affair of the state, organized by the Government, not an event planner.

Because ordinary engaged couples are not bound by centuries-worth of tradition and protocol, Kim advises couples to make their weddings an intensely personal and sincere occasion with a direct connection to their lives and personalities.

Unusual wedding venues:

Dartmouth House in Mayfair, Home of the English Speaking Union

Hatfield House - great for medieval weddings

Chandos House near Oxford Circus, owned by The Royal Society of Medicine, dates back to 1769

Kim’s favorite....Osterley Park near Heathrow (National Trust), known as the “Palaces of Palaces”

Savvy Club - creating fun one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences

As the founder of The SaVVy Club, Kim has organized and hosted once-in-a-lifetime experiences for her adventurous clients and members:

Royal Ascot with a celebrity chef and celebrity jockey

Brazilian Carnival Party, complete with the inventor of the classic Brazilian dance, the Lambada, Braz Dos Santos and Legendary cocktail mixologist, Tony Conigliaro who created a special cocktail for the night

The Wembly Stadium Experience, satisfying members’ yearning to sit in the Queen's seat
