The Earth Hall at the Natural History Museum was selected as the venue for the exclusive book launch of Rutland Hall Publishing’s ‘Timeless Treasures’, a hardback showcasing regal Indian weddings on 25th January.
The Museum welcomed over 300 guests who spent the evening exploring the regal culture of Indian marriages, characterised by abundant gift-giving and lavish displays of jewellery and textiles.
The Earth Hall provided the backdrop for the canapé and drinks reception, welcome speeches and glittering showcase of new high-end fashion collections from Sabyasachi and Cartier. Guests were invited to purchase signed copies of the new release and offered the rare opportunity to privately view the Earth’s Treasury collections throughout the course of the evening.
Natural History Museum’s head of venue hire Robert Wetherell adds: “With our event spaces featuring in the new publication, it was a thrill to host the launch and champion the prestigious nature of Indian wedding venues. The Earth Hall lends itself perfectly to events that are looking for a wow-factor space to match the magnitude of the occasion. A dramatic sense of arrival is ensured as guests are greeted by the most intact Stegosaurus fossil skeleton ever found then enter further into the space to experience the beautifully illuminated Earth’s core structure.”
Ungelie Patel from publishers Rutland Hall explained: “The launch of the‘ Timeless Treasures’ book was a great opportunity to work in partnership with the iconic Natural History Museum, whilst launching such a momentous and much-anticipated curation of priceless wedding jewellery. It is testament to the suppliers working harmoniously together in order to maximise the tight lead times ahead of the book’s publication date, creating a memorable evening for our high-profile attendees.”
