THE STORY

BEHIND OUR NAME

Club 1942 is quintessentially British, but our name was inspired by one of the most beloved American movies of all time - Casablanca

The classic love story starring Humphrey Bogart & Ingrid Bergman had its world premier in New York City on November 26, 1942

OUR HISTORY

There's magic in what we do, underpinned by skill and experience.

Club 1942 was founded by Mary-Ann & Emma Jane Henningham, a mother/daughter duo who have been happily working together since 1998.

Combine their unique skill sets with rigorous profiling, well-honed intuition and a passion for connecting people, and it's easy to see why they achieve such an impressive success rate.

Matchmaking is in my DNA; despite my background as a Founding Director of a boutique Financial Services company, studying Auctioneering & Valuation and a stint in Sotheby’s Fine Art Dept. Second generation matchmaker, I have an innate ability to evaluate and read people - ideal for when i’m headhunting and interviewing potential matches.

Bringing together two people destined for each other is, quite frankly,

the best job in the world.

I’m also very family-oriented and love working with Mama (and Millicent - her eccentric miniature dachshund). Our strong bond is built on trust and mutual respect, something which is reflected in our partnerships with clients. I look forward to working with you and arranging your first dates!

 

Until then, EJ

My beloved grandmother was my inspiration and the main reason I became a matchmaker. A woman of substance and one of the kindest women you could ever hope to meet. Though she never turned professional, she used her seating arrangements and gentle influence to great effect. The results of which were often firm friendships or long and happy marriages.

Two people, bound by love, can be a formidable force.

I believe i've inherited my Grandmother's ability to put people at ease, to listen and trust my intuition; especially as i’m also Dyslexic. Feelings of inadequacy in the classroom fuelled a lifelong determination to be the best in whatever I put my mind to.  I’m proud to have become a sought-after matchmaker and hope to work with you soon... 

 

Best wishes, Mary-Ann

TELEGRAPH

Encouraging a revival, she wrote: "Chivalry and gentlemanly behaviour is a good thing". She called on women to "enjoy being a woman and let men treat them as such" and on men "to be old-fashioned gentlemen; chivalry is still in demand".
