A lovely wedding planning company here in Hong Kong has asked me to design a fictional wedding, based on a real client they are dealing with as a way of accessing my potential to work there.
The brief of ideas I put forward was a lot more detailed than this, including food, day plans and all the little details, here is a snippet of my favourite and main ideas. Enjoy. x
50 guests *
England based *
Not religious. Open to outside. *
Dress - sheer, vintage, embroidered, light creme with light gold detailing *
Colour theme - whites and pinks, nothing bright *
4 bridesmaids aged between 5 and 12, dresses, light creme *
Wedding is held outside. At a big country house, there is a English country meets summery laid back vibe.
All chairs are mismatched, English or French antique style, wooden frames, either natural base colour or painted creme,white or light pink. Some may have embroidered cushioning.
There is a trail of very light pink rose petals littering the makeshift aisle.
The after section of the wedding is held at the same location. Guests enter through the front of the building onto the grounds where after the ceremony there is a section laid out for dining, speeches, dancing and mingling.
The theme is still very prevalent, mismatched chairs, crockery and cutlery. The centerpieces are simple, clear glass vases of all different shapes and sizes with a few delicately places flowers, the same that are in the bouquets.
To add extra beautiful touches there will be hanging glass chandeliers with tea lights, the occasional creme lantern and clear glass flower vases dangling from trees.
Invites and favors
Simple, elegant and delicate. Naturally light pinkish stamps and butterflies would be used to match rest of the theme.
As a momento a vintage typewriter would be placed by the main entrance of the building for guests to type their good wishes and notes. Black ink onto creme paper. This would then be bound together with thin gold sting. Also there would be a retro style polaroid camera for the guests to snap a photograph to attach to their note.
A creme Austin Healey 3000, traditional British car drops the bride to her wedding.
The party would be descending into the evening, and their would live music romantic (no cheese) No specific dance floor as such but an area ringed with petals that match the ones on the aisle. The garden is lit up with clear fairylights around the surrounding bushes and the lanterns/chandelier light will shine all through the evening.
There is a large pond/lake on the grounds with a few floating rose heads and candles dotted around.
