Tessa joined the Uptown team in the spring of 2015. Having previously worked for Uptown Events as an assistant, she went on to work for a high-end private events company, organising parties around the world. She recently decided to return to her roots at Uptown as an Event manager, bringing with her the enthusiasm and meticulous eye for detail she has developed from her experiences in events. When she’s not party planning Tessa has a qualification in fitness and likes to try new challenges. Tessa loves the diversity of the events world, meeting new people and seeing months of planning coming together to create some incredible parties.
Most Memorable Event You Have Worked On At Uptown
My most memorable event would have to be creating a striking New York themed Barmitzvah at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Our double-level stage with scaling New York apartment style ladders, brickwork surrounds and bespoke graffiti print was completed with a balcony level for the man-of-the-moment to make his grand entrance … playing himself in with a 17-piece band! The towering table centres and high set LED walls brought Times Square to King’s Cross. The night was full of surprises with incredible performances from Dynamo and Craig David. A truly memorable party with a great crowd who partied throughout the night – and beyond!
