The Ivy Chelsea Garden Hosts Annual Garden Party To Celebrate The Opening Of The Summer Garden

Tuesday 9 May saw a host of The Ivy Chelsea Garden’s regulars, local residents, influencers and famous guests, including Jeremy Irvine, Lottie Moss, Miranda Richardson, Talulah Riley and Amber Le Bon, gather together to celebrate The Ivy Chelsea Garden’s annual garden party and the opening of the summer garden, two years after the restaurant’s opening in 2015.

Hosted in the restaurant’s beautiful and extensive gardens and orangery, guests were treated to The Ivy Collection’s exclusive Champagne, refreshing and bespoke ‘Chelsea Summer Blush’ cocktails and Rock Angel Rosé by Whispering Angel, as well as a selection of delicious canapés created by Executive Chef Sean Burbidge. For those with a sweeter tooth, an array of cooling ice cream was provided by Ice Cream Union, complete with its very own bicycle that was situated within the garden.

During the evening, guests enjoyed live music by acoustic band, Swing Petite Band, whilst exploring the restaurant’s recently-revealed summer garden, featuring climbing wisteria, a central water fountain feature, rose arches and a variety of colourful summer blossoms, officially marking the start of the summer season in Chelsea. The Ivy Chelsea Garden remains a Chelsea stalwart for local residents and as a destination for those travelling from further afield, marrying approachable sophistication and familiar luxury with an underlying feeling of glamour and theatre.

VIP attendees included: Jeremy Irvine, Talulah Riley, Miranda Richardson, Lottie Moss, Amber Le Bon, India Rose James, Millie Mackintosh, Lucy Watson, Lavinia Brennan, Rosanna Falconer, Nicky Haslam, Olivia Grant, Emily Candy, Irene & Lydia Forte, Marissa Montgomery, Alice and Violet Manners, Amber Nuttall, Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs, Sarah Ann Macklin, Alice Naylor-Leyland, Alistair Guy, Tom Aikens, SJ Mee, Ella Catliff, Diego Bivero-Volpe, Sophie Mitchell, Zafar Rushdie, Noelle Reno and Oliver Proudlock.
