Event Brief

To create a memorable evening for 40 VIP, media and celebrity guests to celebrate the Hardy Brothers Jewellers 160th Anniversary in style.

The Result

The evening featured an exclusive dinner held deep below Sydney’s Castlereagh Street, in the Guardian Vaults.

This facility is a working vault and it provided the perfect opportunity for Hardy Brothers to showcase their aptly named “Vault Collection” to guests.

The evening commenced with guests greeted by hosts upon arrival and ushered down an escalator to the Vault. A bespoke media wall provided the first photo opportunity for the evening before champagne and canapés were served.

Journalist and TV presenter, Cameron Williams, MC’d the evening, and gave guests ‘unusual’ instructions for entry to the dining venue. It involved moving through a series of air lock doors until the moment of surprise and delight when they entered the final room containing the Vault and the dining venue was revealed. A long table was set just outside the Vault, adorned with an abundance of floral arrangements in Waterford crystal vases. There were audible gasps as guests entered the space. The intricate vault door provided the ultimate backdrop for the dinner setting as well as for further photography.

Brand ambassador, Kate Waterhouse delighted guests with a few words before Hardy Brothers revealed the presence of the Melbourne Cup for all to enjoy. The cup was placed on a plinth and the diners were free to marvel at the prized piece and even hold the cup, wearing the all-important gloves.

Following a superb three course dinner, guests were treated to a salon style parade to showcase “The Vault Collection” jewellery.

Overall it was a stunning and memorable occasion in a truly unique location that celebrated Hardy Brother’s 160th Anniversary in true style.
