The main hall, impeccably styled
– no overcrowding of objects in semi
minimalist spaces. Gave me a sense
of relaxation being surrounded by
deeply thought through &
painstakingly crafted things – a
space of peace & tranquillity,
with sea breezes wafting in
through the open doors onto the
veranda, with a spectacular view
of the sea.
I loved the whole event.
Congratulations GUILD team!

GUILD lighting was superb
designed by Julian McGowan
Photographers heaven on earth!
Eye candy where ever one looked &
everything  beautifully lit – made the
venue look like a stage set – using daylight
lighting. It felt as if photographers had
been kept in mind. Attention to detail
could be felt.
