An expert team

We are an expert team, sharing a passion to push boundaries, a vision to create new concepts and the knowledge to give you an imaginative and unforgettable event, executed with attention to detail and flair.

Emily founded Octavia and realises its vision of exquisite catering and bespoke service. She trained in classical French cuisine at the prestigious Tante Marie cordon bleu school of cookery and has worked in Michelin-starred kitchens in London and overseas. She's travelled the world in search of culinary pursuits and inspiration, working for the top events companies in the industry and cooking for high-profile clients in the film, music and private sectors across the globe.

Emily’s love of food and wine, ethical produce sourcing and the service industry, and her knowledge of the events, music and travel sectors, have led her here. Octavia is a unique combination of event catering with the theatre of the street, and street catering with the precise planning and attention to detail of prestigious events.

  • The team at EBL events went above and beyond for us on our special day. Truly some of the best food we've ever eaten - and we're lucky enough to say that on our wedding day! Cannot recommend these lovely people enough.

  • This is the second event I have chosen EBL Events to cater for me. Emily and her team were simply brilliant in delivering AMAZING food and cocktails for my 50th birthday serving for 140 people. The stress was completely taken out of every situation, any issue leading up to my party I would make one phone call, and from then on, they would take over and organise. I will definitely make an excuse for another party very soon and will not hesitate to ask EBL for all catering and bar services! Thanks again guys! X

  • Although a very sad day, EBL Events made my mother’s funeral reception run as smoothly as could be. Delicious food and extremely polite and presentable staff; we could not ask for more. Thank you to everyone who played their part.

  • EBL Events were responsible for the catering and staffing of my two-day charity event held at my home. There were no issues on either of the days that I was aware of. I would like to extend my warmest gratitude to the whole team for making the event a success. I would not hesitate in recommending them for any function you may be planning.

  • Emily and her team at EBL Events organised my 40th birthday festival weekend in the summer. The crew were super efficient in the setup of the tipis etc., the chefs made excellent food, and the bar and waiting staff were friendly, polite and heaps of fun! Nothing could have gone better over the weekend and all my guests have said what amazing food and service they received. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
