Thank you
For Attending

On 30 march, 2022, a spectacular event was held by Navarra called..... sicily

Navarra celebrated its highly anticipated Menu Tasting and showcase event this year with a twist.

Inspired by our heritage and founder, Filippo Navarra, SICILY was the production of our annual showcase event, enjoyed by over 500 attendees.

With months of planning, our teams of chefs and event coordinators from all four venues put on a world-class experience that featured on-trend styling, a Sicilian inspired menu including unique food stations, live cheese-making, authentic Sicilian produce, live pasta stations and a Sicilian Cocktail bar for all guests to enjoy and much more.

Take a look below to see some photos and more about the night.

How the night began

Beginning at the entry of the Curzon Hall castle, guests gathered with Champagne in hand, as they took a moment to appreciate the glorious surrounds of the venue, complete with its own horse stable.

Once the grand doors of the castle opened, guests were escorted into the impeccably styled foyer, welcomed by the sweet sounds of vocalist, Andi Maree.

The grand entrance with show-stopping bridal gowns, and a sweet glance into the incredible works of Luxe by Navarra with Melissa D’Cruz was on display in the Curzon Room.

An entire venue transformed

Guests were led to our Grand Banquet Room which was transformed into a timeless and classic space that glistened with brass accents and warm Autumn-influenced florals. Here, you were met with live cooking stations led by our Venue Executive Chefs and inspired by the authentic cuisine of Italian flavours and produce.

 

As guests continued through from the Curzon Room across the foyer, and into Lady Mary’s Pavilion, we were met with an endless array of “wow” and “oh my goodness!”, as couples and their families witnessed LUXE by Navarra in all its incredible glory. The styling team of Navarra effortlessly transformed the desired space into an elegant dream from end to end. 

White and greens adorned the entirety of the room, as we begun the show to end all shows.

The night continued with a sumptuous, three-course meal that came with months of planning, multiple workshops, new menu development and endless hours in our kitchens with our executive chefs and their teams.
