Today I am thrilled to introduce Rossett Bespoke Butlers, a luxury service for weddings, events etc with a speciality being Wedding butlers.
They also offer Lifestyle management services.
I had a chat with the lovely Simeon to find out all about his work…
Who are you, and what do you do?
“I am Simeon Rosset I have been working as a butler to the rich and famous, organising events and parties for over 15 years.”
“I then decided I would like to bring the skills which I perfected looking after the world’s super rich to a wider audience.”
“To do this I assembled a small team of experienced butlers, event managers and party planners and formed Rosset Bespoke Butlers.”
“We look after clients at events of various natures including corporate hospitality, intimate dinners and large sporting events, as well as training staff of venues in silver service and butler skills.”
“Our most exciting new service, however, is the Wedding Butler service.”
“We offer a bespoke service for each couple, catering for their own tastes, requirements and budgets.”
“We look after the details which allow the whole wedding party to enjoy the day knowing that the responsibility for arrangements are in safe hands.”
“So many couples spend so much of their day trying to ensure that other people are happy; from making sure the piper is paid, to checking that Auntie Agnes has her taxi home booked or that Uncle Bob has his hotel room key; that they forget to relax and enjoy their day.”
“We can deal with the details, no matter how large or small, to ensure the happy couple enjoy every aspect of their perfect day.”
When and why did you start your Company?
“I got the idea for providing Wedding Butlers back in 2012 while organising the wedding for my employer of the time.”
“Even though the wedding reception was being held at Claridge’s Hotel London there were a huge amount of extra details to look after. I thought to myself; why does no one provide this service to brides?”
“When I set up Rosset Bespoke Butlers in August 2014 I knew that the service I was most excited about offering was my Wedding Butlers.”
What inspires you?
“I am really inspired by the past; I look at the grand opulence of the great houses before the First World War and I try to recreate that in a modern setting.”
“My team and I then use these techniques to enhance peoples’ enjoyment of their weddings and parties in a 21st century setting.”
“I find many of my former clients have also inspired me.”
“Their drive and enthusiasm for their careers is encouraging, but also, as I am exposed to their private lives, their dedication to family and home life is impressive.”
Do trends influence your work?
“It is very important to keep in touch and understand current fashions and trends, but, it is equally important not to simply follow them blindly.”
“I am really enjoying the current trend influenced by programmes such as Downton Abbey.”
“People seem to be enjoying the image of luxury they see on TV and I am delighted to assist in recreating this in their own lives.”
What is your greatest achievement?
“I am very lucky to have done some extremely exciting things in my career including being personal butler to Luciano Pavarotti, running numerous large society weddings and parties attended by royalty, celebrities and heads of state.”
“I was also head butler in charge of all hospitality for the Northern Ireland peace talks, but, my greatest career achievement was running the Christening of the grandson of one of the richest men in the world. It had over 1000 guests.”
“In my team had: 100 butlers, 50 waiting staff, a brigade of chefs, bar staff, and porters to organise. It was a logistical nightmare, but, every little detail went perfectly I was very proud of my team and what we had achieved.”
“More personally, I would have to say my greatest achievement is recently becoming a dad for the first time.”
“Our son is wonderful and makes me smile every day. His Christening was much simpler to run even if it only had one butler in service.”
What do you see as the future of your Company?
“My dream is “Luxury for all” and a butler for every bride and groom on their wedding day.”
“I am trying to constantly bring new cheaper rate options for brides who don’t have huge budgets, but, still want the luxury they deserve.”
Every since I saw Michael Caine’s “Alfred” in the Batman movies I have been ever so much drawn to the thought of my very own Butler.
Everyone wants that luxury experience , and there is no time more fitting for that than on your wedding day.
Thank you so much to Simeon for sharing an insight into his work.
