Sinead and Matthew's wedding celebration

Design Proposal

7th of July 2018, Trump Doonbeg, co. Clare

Style: Black tie event with elegant and romantic aesthetic. Blush florals with deep red accents and delicate foliage trails to create organic gardenesque feel. Beautiful linens and elegant place settings. Gold accents, fairy lights and candle light throughout.  

 

DINNER RECEPTION

Due to its large size, marquee will be visually zoned in different areas - dining area, soft seating area, dancing area, band, cake, etc.


Dining area

Dining area will be the main zone in the marquee, and the table set-up will ensure it’s visually exciting. There will be beautiful golden table linens with blush table runners. Blush florals with deep red accents and delicate foliage will create organic gardenesque aesthetic. A mix of tall and low candles will create a romantic and intimate feel.

Tall centerpieces could be mixed with the low centerpieces to create visual interest.

Elegant place settings created using gold cutlery, gold rim charger plates and beautiful personalised menus and place cards.

Above the tables, existing lampshades replaced with elegant crystal chandeliers and suspended foliage installation, creating a stunning focal point.

 

Soft seating area

A soft seating area will create a nice comfortable zone within the marquee, perhaps near the dance-floor for the tired feet to relax and enjoy the other guests dancing. Beautiful period sofas and coffee tables complemented with a romantic candle installation.

The entrance foyer to the marquee can be styled similarly, adding candles and romantic florals to create a quieter relaxing area for the older generation, further away from the dance-floor.

 



CHURCH CEREMONY

 

The church will be dressed beautifully but subtly, leaving the dinner reception as the most exciting part of the wedding day visually. To maximise the value of the florals, we will reuse most of them at the dinner reception.

There will be a beautiful floral arrangement for the altar, two large arrangements for the tabernacle behind the altar, and two large urns for the entrance to the church. The urns and vases will be transported to the reception marquee after the ceremony and used to adorn the soft seating areas. If allowed, candles and rose petals used to decorate the aisle.
