Palette: Mauve, Steely Greys, Sand, Dusky Blues, Pearl, Chalky White, Tarnished Silvers, Duck Egg Blue
Decor/Styling: A sirens song beckoning, an instinctual pull towards the mysterious sea with its turning of tides and shifting palettes of colour. Hauntingly beautiful, and timeless in its majestic wonder. A celebration that layers and weaves oceanic elements throughout sensory styling and top to toe adornment. A scene of softly lit silvery shadows, a table on the sand. Raw timber as if washed ashore layered with muslins and linens evocative of sand and nets. Glassware resembling tumbled ocean treasures, and ceramics whose glazes hint at molluscs and subterranean textures.
Mother of pearl cutlery nested amongst sea fans and silverware hinting at the silhouettes of a shell. Mirrored accents and crystals lend a certain magic to tablescapes serving a menu mostly drawn from the sea. Naturally dyed throws and pillows in seafoamy tints and velvety textures create further layering. A scene laid out beneath a perimeter of festoon lighting, encircling a secret, sandy space.
A shimmering gown, embellished with mermaid like sequins, complete with a trailing, pooling hem paired with a groom in the deepest, richest tint of navy blue. Bridesmaids, ethereal in sheer tints and silvery laces, a palette drawn from the surrounding sea and mirrored sand slicks. Silvery jewels adorning fingers and wrists. Snaking sandals strapped around feet.
