Transforming a simple idea into an amazing reality, Shambhavi was with me all the way. Practical support, balanced advice, professional guidance - all provided in an efficient and timely manner. The team took care of any minor hiccups too, so on the night the hosts and guests all had a fabulous time.
Would highly recommend Shambhavi and will definitely use her again!

We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Shambhavi for organising the wedding of our children Avinash and Alice, incredibly well and making it one of the best days of our lives. Having to plan and organise a big wedding in a short span of 5 months is a daunting task. You worked tirelessly to make the whole event happen exactly the way we all wanted it. You were always available to answer any queries and give us practical solutions to any difficulties we had. Nothing was too much trouble for you.
Despite having a Hindu wedding ceremony, civil ceremony and reception all on the same day, everything ran smoothly and to time. We all had a wonderful day and none of it could have been possible without your input, ideas, patience, understanding, organisational skill and hard work. We are still talking about it and so are our guests, with many commenting on how enjoyable and well run the whole event was. Thanks to you and your team our children had their dream wedding realised, which we all look back on with the greatest of pleasure. We would highly recommend you to organise any event, however big or small, confident that it will get done with boundless energy, enthusiasm, good humour and great attention to detail.

On behalf of Priya and myself I would like to thank you wholeheartedly for a great party that you organised for us.
Your boundless energy and enthusiasm was fantastic and you put your heart and soul in making the evening a success.
Many of our guests keep telling us how good the whole event was.
Umesh and Shanta Prabhu
It is a great pleasure and honour to give you a testimonial following our son Suraj's wedding. From start to finish we saw nothing but professionalism in you. Nothing was too much for you.
Everything from flowers, decoration, food, ceremony and the whole event was simply superb and every one of our guests commended the day.
Shanta and I want to thank you for all your hard work and amazing professionalism you showed.
I have already recommended you to few of my friends and I am sure they will keep in touch with you soon.
It gives us great pleasure to provide this citation as a very satisfied customer. Shambhavi organised a party with 560 guests, 120 of whom needed their overnight stay to be arranged. I can vouch for her professionalism and personal attention to all details throughout the months prior to party. Shambhavi was supportive of my ideas and realised them extraordinarily well. The icing on the cake was the feedback I received from my guests. These are some of the comments I received from my guests after the party. "It was the best ever party I attended", "What an event! The organisation was perfect", "it was a carnival", "everybody was so happy", "the food was exceptional", "never seen so many happy people in one room before", "it was a monumental party and the best we have attended", "What a celebration! Could not have been organised better", "what a performance by the dancers!", "the best evening of entertainment", "evening ran smoothly with no glitches", "I don't think anybody can beat this"
We hired Invent your event for the event management of our daughter’s Sangeet and Mehendi Functions. Shambhavi the proprietor of Invent your event is extremely professional and takes a keen personal interest in making your event as individual as you like. She goes way beyond your expectation to make the client’s special day an event to remember.
She is very resourceful and is able to match the client with the appropriate suppliers to cater to the individual needs. Her approach makes the event work like clockwork.
I am very happy to recommend the company to manage your events/functions.
Priya and Nirmal Kumar
I would like to say how pleased we were with the arrangements made by Shambhavi for our summer garden party. She went far beyond the call of duty and all the guests were truly amazed by her planning and execution which meant that we as hosts could "deliver" such a nice party and yet relax fully in the knowledge that she had everything under control. Right from the decorations to arranging the entertainment and very importantly making sure the food and drinks were just right meant that the whole party was a truly grand occasion. Nothing was too difficult for Shambhavi and her team and I would strongly recommend engaging "Invent your Event" to be your event planner.

A thank you note from the mid-Atlantic!
A simple thank you seems so wholly inadequate for the help and support you have given us in the lead up to, and on the day of our wedding. All things considered we thought the day was a huge and memorable success and we are truly grateful.
Thank you to you, your son, and the service providers you introduced us to. Please pass on our sincere and heartfelt thanks for their part. People were fulsome in their praise of how Helen looked and everyone said what a wonderful floral display Anita provided. It all complimented the magnificent natural venue so wonderfully.
We will treasure forever the memories of a wonderful day and we are so thankful for the way you kept pressure and problems away from us. You earned your fee.
It was a pleasure working with you and we wish you all the very best for the future.

Shambhavi helped to arrange 30th birthday celebration for our son. We left most things in her good hands and went off on a cruise. She organized everything perfectly and we had a most enjoyable and flawless party. We were most grateful for her help and would recommend her for birthdays, weddings or other celebrations. March 2012.
Ranganath and Rajani Bhat (India)
We entered the hall, Rajani and I...... and to our surprise were about a hundred smiling faces, all our nearest and dearest shouting ‘SURPRISE’. From the tastefully decorated stage, staring at us were our own photographs on the banner. The programme that followed brought back nostalgic memories of our nuptials. Food was simply mouth-watering and carefully selected. Everything had been meticulously planned and executed. The minutest details had been taken care of...... so much for a quest for perfection! Thanks to Shambhavi, we had a Silver Wedding Anniversary celebration that we shall cherish all our lives. April 2011
Dr R Prasad
By the time we found the perfect venue for our wedding we realised we had less than 6 months to host an event for 300 people! It was even worse for those around me when they realised that I was not going to be happy with anything less than ‘perfection’ for my big day!! Very early on in the proceedings I found myself floundering in the complex world of floral decorations. I really couldn’t find the right florist to help me. This is when Shambhavi kindly offered her services and rescued the situation. And from then on all I had to do was tell her my vision and she would use her resourcefulness, contacts, creativity and organisational skills to turn my ideas into reality. She was fun and a positive energy to have around but also calming and patient when things became stressful. She is intuitive and therefore knew exactly when to give me space (during my bride-zilla moments) but also found a tactful way of talking me out of my more hair-brained ideas later. She is an extremely talented woman with astounding skills. She will comfortably draw up intricate and personalised table plans/table place cards and at the same time will happily make last minute alterations on your dress and also supervise the decorators! She is an events organiser who will pick up on your passion to get your special day just right; just the way you want it and really work with you to ensure you achieve it. October 2010.

Shambhavi is very efficient, hard working and passionate about her work. She has all the qualities one would expect from a successful event organizer i.e. very good communication skills, reliability, imagination, full of new ideas and prompt delivery as the event demands. She helped me in the organisation of my daughter Meghna's wedding last year. The celebrations extended over 3 days according to Hindu customs. Shambhavi not only helped me in catering arrangements but accommodation, transport, menu and decoration of the Cricket Club for the Mehndi (Henna) night and liaised with The Master of Ceremonies on the wedding day as well. She delivered this with smile and willingness. Her expertise in IT skills facilitated wedding list addresses for invitations, place cards, order for gift boxes, and table plans - all were beyond my expectations. Her enthusiasm and organization skills made this special day very memorable and enjoyable for Meghna, Rajat, friends and family members who attended this event. I would strongly recommend her as an event organizer if one is looking for the celebrations in style, have lots of fun and add an element of surprise.
Dr Supriya Rao
There have been two occasions where Shambhavi has come to my aid. The first being my father's 50th Birthday Party, which went with a bang. Everything was organised to the tee and she even went out of her way to 'knit' a certain prop for a comical present, which was a great touch! The second is obviously the more memorable one. Every girl dreams of her big day and although denies it, all of us have an element of bridezilla in us. Shambhavi made it less so. From travelling to India, ordering my Indian bridal outfit to exactly my specifications and bringing it back to the UK, to even altering it to its new size after I managed to shed those few pounds (well maybe not so few). She also carefully planned how I would wear my chunni during the dress rehearsal, so that I could change from my white wedding dress into my Indian outfit in minutes. There was even one point in the chaotic preparations where I remember her travelling halfway across London, with only a few
hours to go, for some chocolates that I wanted in my favor boxes. She managed to combine the different elements of an Indian and Irish wedding, which was hard in itself but made everyone feel at ease. Not only was it memorable for my husband and I, but till this day, my friends all still rave about it.

Shambhavi did an exceptional job in organising and planning a surprise silver wedding party for my parents. She took the stress of co-ordinating guests, who were coming from all parts of the country, as well as organising catering and finding a venue all with a personal and professional approach. Thanks to her, the event went without a hitch and she organised the perfect evening for everyone. I would have no hesitation in recommending Shambhavi to anyone who desires a stress free, fun and most importantly, memorable affair.
Mrs Patricia Gratton
How to set up a party in one hour! Ask Shambhavi! Mrs Shambhavi Kamath provided my husband and me with a most delightful surprise party for our 25th wedding anniversary. We had arranged a renewal of vows at church to be attended by a few friends and family before the regular Sunday service. This was to be followed by a cup of tea and anniversary cake at a friend’s house nearby. On the pretence of needing to borrow extra crockery, from us, this friend asked us to pop to our house first, which we gladly did. However we were delayed by the priest (deliberately as it became obvious much later) When we arrived home the only odd sign was that the dining room curtains were closed. Still we suspected nothing, until we opened the door to a wonderful welcome by Shambhavi, family and friends and a huge net of balloons suspended over the hallway!! There were further decorations in the dining room where the table was laden with a lovely display of food and drinks all provided by friends and organised by Shambhavi!!! After eating and drinking and the presentation of gifts, the teenagers (including our own) then entertained us with a cabaret which was great fun. Obviously a lot of thought and planning had gone into making our day such a memorable one, but it is still a mystery how all the practicalities were accomplished whilst we were at church! INCREDIBLE!
