About

Katie Crichton-Stuart and Charlotte Aitken founded Albion Parties in 2010. Friends for years through family connections, they set up Albion Parties to specialise in throwing spectacular parties and weddings. Their aim is to create detailed and immaculately run events, that are memorable and great fun.

Katie has been in the industry for 18 years, working for top London caterers and party planners before setting up Albion Parties with Charlotte. Happiest when her Dachshund, Blondie, is running around the office, she specialises in large scale weddings. She has a degree in Psychology from Edinburgh University.

Charlotte worked at Goldman Sachs, running over 90 events a year across Europe, including the World Economic Forum in Davos, Hedge Fund events, and the Global Partner programme. Now married to an Italian from Lake Como, she is our resident Italian specialist. She has a degree in English Literature from Edinburgh University.

Emma Nelson has over 5 years’ experience in the luxury events world. Beginning at Quintessentially, Emma produced events for a number of world-renowned corporate clients including Facebook, Omega, IHG, BGC and Diacore, as well as high profile individuals. From a marathon in Botswana, to Bar Mitzvahs in London, and weddings in Vienna and Athens, she has developed a broad spectrum of expert knowledge. She has a degree in English Literature and French.

Kate Richards has been part of the Albion team for two and a half years. After starting her career at CBRE, she followed her dream of becoming a party planner, to make the most of her creative flair and keen eye for detail. Thrown in at the deep end at Albion Parties, she has worked on parties in St Tropez and Tuscany, as well as running her own events in London. She has a degree in Geography from Leeds.
