A Lush Affair believes in better events. We believe in using better practices that lead to better experiences for clients, guests, the environment and the communities we serve, from planning, to execution, and everywhere in between. As Canada’s first-ever B Corp event planning company, we believe all events should be inclusive, sustainable and ethical, while aiming to inspire others to take social and environmental action within their own lives. We work toward a healthier environment, food security and stronger communities. As a B Corp, we create celebrations for our clients that also celebrate the surrounding community by driving a positive impact for small businesses, their employees and the environment. Our work keeps waste to a minimum while supporting local vendors and artisans as a purpose-driven organization committed to doing no harm and benefitting all. Our team of inclusive and reliable experts understand that transparency is key in building spectacular events, having successfully planned and executed hundreds of events since 2015. From elegant and energetic weddings, to milestone celebrations, fundraising and media events, corporate receptions and innovative fashion shows, our unpretentious approach makes the event process enjoyable for all from start to finish.
