This was one of those truly memorable weddings to style. Our amazing couple – Tanya and Streten were a delight to work with as they knew exactly what they wanted and had impecable modern taste and a relaxed fun-loving vibe about them. It was an honour to be appointed to style their wedding by Natalie from Tickled Pink Weddings and Events and to assist her bringing their vision to life. The wedding was hosted at Katy’s Palace Bar, Kramerville, Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa. Katy’s is a rustic urban industrial space that has so much character and atmosphere – yet is a fantastic neutral pallet to dress up and customize.
iew of the whole event space just before guests were to arrive – bridal party , photographers, decor team, organizers doing last minute preparations. In this unconventional wedding format the ceremony was held in the same space as the reception party – allowing for a natural flow from one activity to the next. A mix of informal seating is scattered through the space and encircled by various gourmet food stations.
Tanya wanted to bring an element of nostalgia into the design – paying tribute to her beloved granny’s favourite flowers – pale yellow roses and baby’s breath. We then contrasted this soft element with bold navy blue to add a masculine element to bring visual balance and a modern touch. We added eclectic bud vases with tulips and fynbos for visual interest.
A novelty “Hot Chocolate” station was ideal for this chilly winters day wedding. Corrugated paper cuts with dye-cut cup sleeves and customized labeling. We supplied wooden chocolate spoon dippers to melt in hot milk.
The feature dessert station – not only displayed the wooden chocolate spoon dippers under glass domes – but other luxury treats in apothecary jars and vintage platters. Again blue pinstripe runners, theme colour bunting, vintage wooden crates, flowers in buckets and chalk-art signage finished off the statement display.
