Decor/Styling: A majestic heirloom space, forgotten ballroom or grand private residence, surrounded by smoke mirrors and lowly lit chandeliers, a darkened evening unfolds beneath a canopy of crystal. A feeling of fleeting opulence, personas slipped into for the evening, the tinkling of glasses, blooms ethereally emerging, luminous from darkened corners, gowns drifting like pale shadows, sheer hems, barely there…
Accents of burnished gold dot tablescapes amidst charcoal linens, velvet lined chairs and pearl hued plates. A decadent feast of autumnal and wintry flavours, the perfume of ripe figs paired with macarons, cheese and golden flutes of champagne. Muted napery offsets a dusky palettes of pale petals and unexpected blooms. Candlelight completes the scene, bathing everything in a rich, golden light.
An ethereal gown of cascading tulle falling in sheer lengths, moving ghost like through darkened spaces, accompanied by a groom in a classic black tuxedo, slim cut, complete with antique cufflinks. Bridesmaids in mixed gowns of soft metallic and duskily tinted laces, embroidered with delicate florals, unexpectedly daring in cut. Shimmering lids and barely stained lips complete a mood of enchanting femininity, each hand adorned in a single, pearl set golden ring - a gift from the bride.
