We first met with Nirvani last winter, and I could tell off the hop that this wedding was going to be a lot of fun to work on. Why? Because the bride wanted lots of bright colour! We worked closely with the Soiree Event Planning team to come up with some great ideas for them, and couldn’t have been happier with the result.
This was an Indian and Chinese wedding, so there were lots of different ceremonies and celebrations. For the Indian ceremony at the Fort Garry Hotel, we got to do something we don’t do very often: a lush, thick carpet of aisle petals. Nirvani really wanted it to stand out, so they selected an eggplant satin aisle runner and we used hot pink petals to band either side of the runner and a thick swirled pattern was in the centre. We also added two large arrangements of fuchsia hydrangea at the front, on either side of the mandap.
The day of the reception, Nirvani wore this STUNNING fuchsia gown. Again wanting the flowers to really pop, we worked with a vibrant mix of purples and pinks. The bridesmaids wore eggplant, and we gave them magenta hydrangea bouquets.
The reception was beautiful. It was in my favourite room at the Fort Garry Hotel – the Provencher Room. Eggplant linens were chosen for the tables and offset with champagne chair wraps, and the head table was set apart with magenta linens and luxe champagne satin draping – it was gorgeous!
We worked on two centrepieces styles – one high, and one low. Each was surrounded with three cylinder vases filled with hot pink water and topped with a candle, and of course, had a bit of bling as per the bride’s request!
The flowers were a mix of hydrangea, stock, alstromeria, roses, and carnations. Each tall centrepiece also had a stem of submerged bright pink mokara orchids.
We also dressed up the guest book table, with a few mixed arrangements of hydrangea and orchids.
And last but not least, the cake. Cake Studio really goes above and beyond, and I couldn’t believe the amazingness which is this wedding cake. It’s breathtaking!
