Who we are

The deWintons Team

Ruth Lawton-Owen – Director

With a career spanning 18 years, Ruth has worked in multiple areas of the events industry, from managing venues to running events for in-house teams and heading up the sales and marketing for leading event catering brands. This breadth of experience has resulted in her twice being included in the list of 100 most influential people in the UK events industry.

Ruth has responsibility for the creative team of party designers and event planners for both deWintons and The Admirable Crichton and enjoys driving the business forward, building on the strong reputations of both companies.

In those elusive spare moments, she enjoys walking and attempting to train her second Battersea rescue dog and walking her way round London's most interesting restaurants.

Paige Norman – Event Manager

Paige has been honing her event planning skills over the past three years working for another event caterer, firstly at The Royal Courts of Justice and then at Tower Bridge. There she discovered a passion and talent for organising parties and came to work at The AC and deWintons to develop her talents in summer 2015.

She enjoys working closely with clients, helping to quote and plan parties, dinners and corporate functions. Her meticulous planning style and sense of fun ensure that her events are seamless, enjoyable and suit the client’s requirements exactly. She particularly enjoys working on the finished product in our London venues and private homes, helping to make sure that each of her parties goes without a hitch.

An admirer of fantasy fiction such as Harry Potter, Twilight and Hunger Games, she can use her creative imagination to inject fun and fantasy into any party when necessary.


Charlie’s client care and organisational skills are second to none. With over a decade's experience in the events industry, she is the perfect person to take you through the planning of your special occasion.

She delights in exceeding client expectations and is always on hand to ensure that plans for the event run smoothly throughout the whole process as well as on site. Charlie’s background of managing events at the Natural History Museum ensures her understanding of not only large scale productions, but also intimate events with a great attention to detail. Her fun-loving personality and fastidiousness make her events stand out from the crowd.
