Exceptional Asian Weddings and Events
Maia by The AC is an Asian events company offering excellence in all aspects of parties, weddings and celebrations. From the day the official announcement of the wedding is made, to the actual wedding day, we can take care of everything for the happy couple; guiding them step by step, through the planning of the engagement party, pre-shaadi gatherings and the wedding party celebrations themselves. During 2015, responding to market demand, Maia by The AC was formed to plan and deliver the highest quality Asian events in the seamless AC fashion. Drawing on the AC’s 33 years of international experience and over 30 years of Executive Head Chef Andy Varma and Creative Director Ungelie Patel’s Asian expertise, to produce the most luxurious Asian weddings, parties and events.
The skills and expertise of Andy Varma and the excellent design and conceptual vision of Ungelie Patel combined with the heritage of world-renowned party design company The Admirable Crichton, will plan and deliver Maia’s events. This combined expertise makes delivering Indian weddings and Asian events seamless, whether you require a London wedding in a beautiful palace, museum or iconic building or an amazing international venue for an idyllic destination wedding. The quality of The AC’s service and catering was celebrated in 2002 when they were awarded a Royal Warrant by HRH The Prince of Wales; an accolade that is retained today. All Maia’s Asian weddings and parties benefit from the finesse, expert planning and delivery that won this highest tribute.

The smallest details often go un-noticed, but are vital in making an event outstanding. Beautiful table settings, drapes, lighting and flowers all presented in stunning and innovative ways in the best venues; these details make our weddings stand out from the crowd. We love the unusual and relish designing something unique, working with the best Indian and international suppliers to ensure the highest standards. Nothing is too much trouble for our wedding planners. They can send invitations in exquisite calligraphy to your guest list, arrange hotels and transport all your guests. We can chauffer the bride and groom in the fastest Lamborghini and a slow moving elephant for the baraat.
Ungelie and Andy are dear friends with top international wedding dress designers from Manish Malhotra to Sabhyasachi, Tarun Tahiliani and Rohit Bal. Bridesmaids of course will want to help selecting their bridesmaids dresses and we can suggest jewellery for the bride and groom, not to mention selecting the best henna artists available. Ungelie and our designers have all these talented people listed as favourites in their contact lists and can help with every aspects of the planning. When the ceremony is over, let the party begin! Our outstanding cocktails and array of drinks will fuel the thirstiest guests as they enjoy watching international entertainers and artists and dance the night away.
