Combine unique skill sets with mutual respect and a shared passion for uniting people, and it's easy to see why mother & daughter founders, Mary-Ann & EJ Henningham, have been successfully working together since 1998.

​The need to meet new people and be social is inherent in all of us. Knowing that one-to-one introductions was a tried & tested method for finding love, we decided to apply the same matchmaking principals to friendship. As selective as a private members club, our exclusive One-To-One service offers the busy, discerning & high-profile a convenient and highly effective way to make new contacts, friends & acquaintances.

For those who prefer to socialise as part of a group - Smart Rallies offer discerning couples a way to escape for the weekend, take in some beautiful scenery, solve some clues along the way and finish with a fantastically fun dinner over which stories can be shared and new connections made.

Our sister company, Club 1942, offers a traditional matchmaking service, but with an utterly bespoke approach. As a client, you would commission us to conduct a confidential, tailor-made search based on your exact requirements. A quintessentially British brand, our name was actually inspired by one of America's most iconic movies, Casablanca. The classic love story starring Humphrey Bogart & Ingrid Bergman, premiered in NYC in November, 1942



Quality you most admire in a friend?

Quality you most admire in a friend?

Honesty & empathy.

I believe the point of life is to improve it, to make something about it better.
