Venue: Mural Hall
Decor/Styling: Inspired by the heirloom opulence of haute couture, a world steeped in historical inspiration and staged in a magnificent spaces, palatial in their proportions and breathtaking in their grandeur…we are enchanted by Mural Hall and all that it evokes...the idea of a white tie wedding housed in a historical venue, a ballroom, suffused with faded elegance.
With sweeping staircases, majestic chandeliers and romantic murals in a soft palette of dreamy pastels, embrace styling in a similarly restrained palette, with opulent, heirloom finishes. Consider luxe stationery, monogrammed and sealed with wax, flowing through to silk tassels as escort cards on the night, names penned in elegant calligraphy. For dinner styling layer fine china paired with cut crystal stemware, ivory linens and an ombre of the palest flowers in ballroom arrangements, or cascading bare down infinitely long tables to create a nuanced patina of heirloom tints. Weave in height befitting of the opulent space with a magnificent champagne tower on arrival and a dessert station built upon antique cake stands, or a majestically high croquembouche adorned with spun sugar and pastel blooms.
This is the perfect setting in which to embody a dramatically opulent wedding gown of breathtaking embellishment (drawing inspiration from the enchanted elegance found at Valentino, Givenchy or Elie Saab). Surround yourself with bridesmaids in a palette of Lauduree inspired pastels in the palest of tints, evoking an ethereal Tim Walker style of dreamy elegance. Keep shoes to a softly nude palette and jewellery in shades of rose and pale gold. For gentleman, this is a purely white tie affair.
