10 Year Anniversary

Sarah & Sebastian

On a beautiful spring day, guests arrived to a sensory feast beneath the Opera House sails at none other than Bennelong Restaurant.

Eleven Events was pleased to execute the vision of Sarah & Sebastian in partnership with Catinella PR for the launch of Sarah & Sebastian’s new film Now You See Me; celebrating their latest collection, “Xanthe” surrounded by the beauty and sparkling surrounds of Sydney Harbour.

A celebration of nature and it’s unique beauty took centre stage, with all elements of the Eleven vision executed with this in mind whilst simultaneously taking into consideration the refined elegance of Sarah & Sebastian and the locations unique surrounds and architectural elements of the Opera House itself. The space was transformed into a stunning oasis inspired by the Great Barrier Reef all brought to life featuring an array of vibrant and colourful blooms that captured the essence of the reef.

Eleven drew inspiration from the colours and formations of the ocean, conceptualising custom napkins, featuring imagery from the film itself, bringing visions of the sea to the table and every guest.

Additionally, floral arrangement adorning the tablescape was designed and masterfully executed by floral artist Doctor Cooper; unique in every aspect, reflecting the unparalleled beauty of the reef and inimitable formations of nature itself.

The tables were adorned with stunning arrangements and custom creations, creating a cohesive and deeply immersive experience for the guests who were invited to experience and celebrate the film and collection whilst they imbibed and indulged upon the incomparable Bennelong restaurant.
