About Us

Our founder Lucy has worked in event planning for more than 15 years. Having cut her teeth learning from the best with three leading events companies, in 2016 she followed her dream, struck out on her own and launched Lucy Claire Events, and hasn’t looked back since!

Based in the Oxfordshire countryside very close to the Cotswolds, we work in the surrounding counties and London – if it’s accessible, we’ll be there! We have delivered a variety of corporate events for big brands as well as beautiful private parties and celebrations, including weddings, and over the years the business has grown by word of mouth and repeat custom.

 

 

Meet Lucy

Hi, I’m Lucy and my passion is creating and delivering events that go above and beyond our clients’ expectations. I love every element of bringing an event to life, from the initial chat formulating the brief, the high-vis and wellie-walk around and then seeing the magic of it all coming together. I don’t want to have just met your brief; I want to give you the wow factor!

A country girl at heart you can find me, (when I’m not running events), out with my dogs and turning hedgerow fruits into jams, chutneys and liqueurs – it’s like my own little cottage industry!

Client Testimonials

'I've worked with LCE Events on two occasions in the last four years and I was so impressed with the level of support and professionalism shown by Lucy and her team. The events were a CEO leaving party and a European conference in Oxford. Next to that, I have also attended a couple of events which LCE Events executed, both delivered with perfection. It was a 21st birthday party and two 70th company anniversaries (corporate). From this list you can see that the range and scope of types of events is broad; this requires a lot of flexibility and creativity, which are great attributes we can give to Lucy and her company. I am a planner and have delivered medium and large-scale events before, and I have full appreciation for the work that goes into planning and executing an event. As described above Lucy will deliver anything and she does it with so much grace and lots of fun. You should hire her now for your next event!'

Mauricio de Jong Oliveira

'Our firm have worked with Lucy for a number of years now. Each event she delivers is first class and she is very professional, reliable and friendly. We absolutely value her opinion and judgement on what works and what doesn’t, and she is always coming up with new and exciting ideas for our corporate events – externally and internally. She is a pleasure to work with and we hope to keep doing so for many years to come!'

Louise Hammond, Saunderson House

'It was fantastic! You found us the most wonderful venue that totally exceeded my expectations! Villa Parisi was excellent and the perfect backdrop for our retreat – the attendees were blown away! Working with Ed was a dream and I never had to worry, it was so comforting having him there as I just knew that whatever challenges arose he would be able to figure it out. Overall, it was such a pleasure working with you - thank you so much for all the hard work and I look forward to us working together again on a future project!!'  

Keji Mustapha, Head of Network and Brand, Connect Ventures

'Yet another event…nailed! Massive thank you for all of your impeccable assistance in making our conference at Newbury Racecourse for 350 people a roaring success. The whole day ran smoothly, and you are always on hand to answer those difficult requests. I have worked alongside Lucy for the past 4 years and can honestly say she is an absolute gem of an events coordinator'

Anna Pugh, Associate, Savills

'I met Lucy a number of years ago when she worked for an events company that we were dealing with at the time. Although we only worked together briefly at that time is was obvious that Lucy was a highly accomplished professional. So, when we decided to look for a new events partner, Lucy was an obvious choice. That was a couple of years ago, since when it has been a real pleasure working with Lucy and her team. Working with Lucy is like working with a member of our own team, I know if I ask for something it will be done, on time, on budget and to the highest standard and more importantly fitting perfectly within brand. Although we have worked with some of the country's leading events companies, the personal touch offered by Lucy is by far our favoured option and we would recommend that you find out for yourself.'  

Phil Mullins, National Eyecare Group

'Well done to you Lucy – it was perfect. 'Thank you so much for all your hard work, creativity, logistical prowess and good humour. If one of your objectives was to make your client look good, you certainly did that.  I and my team have been receiving lots of compliments for throwing a great party (despite me telling them that it was you!).  And a few sore heads this morning are evidence of a good time had by all.'

Private Client

'Lucy coordinated our wedding and was hugely supportive and efficient both in the run-up and on the day itself. Whether it was at a site visit, over email or on the phone, Lucy was attentive and had great attention to detail. We had picked a venue where all our suppliers were booked independently of each other and we needed someone who would be able to run the show on the day - Lucy liaised directly with everyone involved and the day itself ran seamlessly as a result of her management. We can't rate her highly enough and would use her services again in an instant.'  

C & P, Bride and Groom

'What can I say! It really was a spectacular night. I cannot thank you enough for all the effort you put in to get every detail right both before and during Julia’s surprise party. We all had the most fantastic time and it was a real pleasure working with you. Your impeccable organisation and imagination were top notch, and I really valued your calm professionalism, enthusiasm, advice and good humour. I will definitely be in touch for the next one!'    

Rene Schuster, Private Client

'Lucy Claire Events is one of the best events coordinators it has ever been my pleasure to work with. From initial pitch to tidying up final details of my 50th birthday party for 70 people in Central London, Lucy was an absolute pleasure to work with.  She was head and shoulders above her peers and competitors in terms of understanding the brief and pitching innovative ideas that met my needs both in terms of finance and execution. Throughout the planning process, Lucy remained fun to work with while also being incredibly efficient and coming in comfortably within our budget. The resulting event truly exceeded my expectations and the overwhelming credit for that goes to Lucy and her creative and operational team'
