Wedding flowers and decor for Alecia & Sergio
Wedding at 12 Apostles Hotel in the Western Cape
Around the top and down the four poles of the Gazebo in The Fynbos Garden soft greenery and flowers covered the structure and created a fabulous pergola, complimented with a pearl and crystal chandelier. A low platform were set up in front of the Gazebo, making you stand out above the guests seated… Two large mass displays made up with bundles of lace flower beautiful crisp white open Casablanca lilies, large puffy open Avalanche roses, some pure white Tinike roses and hints of white Phalaenopsis orchids as well as splashes of white Dendrobium orchids and a hint of large open King protea on large ornate silver stands were positioned on either side of the Gazebo. These displays were moved to the Marquee after the Ceremony and used as Focal points in the Reception venue.
Ten pew ends made up with the same flowers, creating balls hanging from shepherds hooks down the aisle added to the romantic setting you envisaged.
The special printed cones supplied by you were filled with fresh white rose petals and used as confetti, placed in large silver champagne bowls on plinths in the back row. With the cream carpet down the aisle and the views of the Ocean and Mountain back drop, the mood were set for this fabulous wedding Ceremony and start to a fantastic Celebration. A contortured willow “tree” “seating plan” set up in the Garden were a WOW facal point…
Soft flowy draped swags decorated the ceiling, flowing from the centre poles to the sides of the room softening the all over look in The Marquee. The poles behind the main table were draped with soft fabric creating a romantic look behind the main table. The Fairy light back drop as well as the fairy light draped centre pole added to the whimsical ambiance you wanted once the sun set.
Flower garland focal points cascaded from the top of the two centre poles adding to the fabulous opulent look.
The railing at the entrance to the Marquee were fully draped with the same flowers we used throughout and were complimented the two large mass displays from the Ceremony as focal points in the venue.
Soft blue mood lighting transformed the room into a wonderland once the sun set.
ALL tables were covered with fabulous heavy white full length damask table cloths and set as per the Hotel’s outstanding standard.
The centre of each of the six round guest tables were decorated with a large round mirror plate reflecting all decoration and candle light and “movement” to the table centre pieces. On these we place a tall glass lily vase with white Dendrobium orchids submerged in water. On top we created a large ball of open Casablanca lilies, puffy lace flower, open white roses, Irish bells, soft greenery and splashes of white Phalaenopsis orchids cascading out the displays. Light shining from light boxes underneath these displays added to the WOW factor… Crystal candle sticks with dangling crystals and tall white dinner candles as well as several crystal votive s with t-light candles and silver embossed bowls with floating candles all added to the romantic lighting you envisaged.
A beautiful, stunning large open King rotea in a crystal bowl were combined with the table centre piece in remembrance of our Grand father.
The eight pax main table were decorated with two large ornate silver champagne bowls. The front were filled with two tall crystal candelabra with tall white dinner candles, two tall lily vases in the same style as the guest tables and two solid crystal bowls filled with the same flowers we used throughout were placed in front of the Bride and Groom. More crystal candle sticks with dinner candles and loads of crystal votive s and t-light candles filled the empty spaces.
Bridal & retinue:
The Bridal bouquet were created with open Vandela roses in a “posy” shape tied with white satin ribbon and complimented with pearls and crystals on the holding bit. The Groom’s buttonhole were the same rose we used in the Bridal bouquet. The Bridesmaids carried a white rose posy and the remaining gents in the Bridal party each had a white rose buttonhole.
