One of my favourite weddings indeed!
When the stars align and the perfect couple comes to you – that’s how I felt about Chenyin and Yijun. Chenyin came to me with a few inspiration images of quirky sculptural arrangements, most of them with my beloved anthuriums, earthy colour palette in mind, and open to any ideas. I couldn’t let her go! 😀
Colours of sand, dried leaves, cappuccino, mud and earth, mustard, salmon, tangerine, maroon… And not much greens. I tried to avoid strong green colour, except for the gorgeous shade of neon green that I found in my mother-in-law’s patio: the palm tree, whose leaves were just starting to loose its chlorophyll, and turned into the most amazing green, that I just had to use!
Working on the concept for the designs, I decided to go for a fusion of earthy decadent 80s reinterpreted into the muted and modern look with some ikebana elements.
The wedding took place at Hyatt Gallery, which has a very low ceiling, yellow lighting and a lot of beige and grey colour. I chose to have a prolonged installation with textures galore to visually make the space taller. The aisle was formed by floor arrangements, all of different designs.
Minimalistic reception that the guys chose to go for was my favourite part of the wedding: two ang paw boxes and flowers.
Even though we had very tight time frames, the whole planning went so smoothly and it was such a breeze working with them! Oh, lucky me!
