Have you ever wondered about the people behind your events? There are so many moving pieces and so much dedication required to put together any one event. The Ottawa event industry is so diverse, we wanted to highlight some of the many talented vendors in the region.


Name: Catherine Neville

Company: Aquatopia Conservatory


Sum up what you do in 5 words: Produce weddings & events  in a tropical indoor paradise.

The one thing you couldn’t live without on event day: Lunch

One piece of advice for your clients: Be realistic about your budget – and don’t sacrifice class for quantity. A smaller, spectacular hosted event beats a big, cheap buffet with a cash bar every time.

Favourite trend: Evening weddings with a strolling dinner menu.

Favourite event moment (big or small): The look on a bride’s face when you see that you’ve exceeded her expectations.

Interesting little known fact about yourself: I was a genetics researcher in my former career. Now I wish I could clone myself!
