Bold & Elegant
“You don’t become a star the day you become famous, you become a star the day you let your light do all the talking.” Sometimes one can fall into the trap of believing that if it’s not popular, it’s not pretty. Orange isn’t necessarily a popular colour choice for weddings unless the design features an autumn theme, however, that doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty in its own right. Orange is a very important colour in Zambia as it symbolises the abundant mineral resources that the world looks towards Africa for.
We designed to suit the venue not the other way around, because many brides have to interweave their wedding designs with already-existing venue backdrops.
“Our aim was to demonstrate how bold colour can be elegant, romantic, and, of course, fun.”
The colour palette featured orange, light orange, cream, brown, and dark green to usher in natural elements to this classic reception space.
A large floral wall bursting with wild florals, grasses and leaves beckoned the eye and created a showstopping focal point as well as a hotspot for guest selfies. Classic round centerpieces overflowed with muted-toned florals to keep the round tables uncluttered and elegant.
A square cake with an oversized ribbon mirrored the delicate table set up and the green linen draped upon the cream to create a romantic ambiance amidst the glowing candlelight.
The bride donned a flowy cream gown with large, layered sleeves and a plunging neckline. An uncommon dress style shined and its tasteful beauty became apparent as the bride glided across the room. The rounded train and soft features shown in contrast against the vibrant backdrop for a bride who owned her place in the room. Suited in beige with a cream shirt, beige bow tie and brown shoes, the groom mirrored the bride and achieved an art form of his own.
