Tips from Wedding Concepts
Use bright colours and inspired lighting concepts to bring warmth and a sense of intimacy to large open interiors comprising of wood, steel and glass.
Jacqueline and Gary, from Johannesburg, dreamed of a designer celebration that would wow their close friends and family. We encouraged the couple to choose a location that would mirror their personal style. Elegant and contemporary in design, paired with innovative architecture and spectacular panoramic views, Waterkloof Wine Estate mirrored their personal modern chic perfectly!
With an interior of glass, steel and wooden textures, we sort out to bring a flood of vivid colour to the setting. The combination of fuchsia, yellow and grey proved to be a striking colour palette that would breath life to the space whilst complimenting its best features. To enhance the intimate feeling we “lowered” the two-story ceiling space over the reception tables, and added a canopy of fairy lights and individually hung dahlias. The flowers comprised of simple & striking arrangements of tulips & calla lilies which created a bold effect of interspersed colour. In addition, single fuchsia orchids were elevated as tall arrangements to maximise the double volume reception space.
Dancing followed heartfelt speeches and dinner, with the couple opening the dance floor with one of best night-time views in the Cape! A decadent and colourful “Sweet Station” adorned with a modern wedding cake finished off this stunning celebration!
