Brides The Show
When asked by Brides Magazine Editor, Jade Beer to exhibit a feature stand at Brides the Show, I knew I had to think of a design that would be completely different to what people would expect to see at a wedding show…
What could I do? What could I make? What could I do to create a breathtaking stand that people would photograph and take elements away from for their own wedding?
Then it clicked, a Tipi, and Wanderlust was born!!!
I really went out of my comfort zone with the design, I wanted the tipi to be luxe, opulent, amazing and over the top which was a difficult brief with an 8 sided open tipi. So we went for a teal and coral colour scheme and used lots of texture, colour, skins, cane furniture and candle light with masses of foliage, miss piggy roses, delphiniums, proteas, celosias and navy hydrangeas...just to name a few of thew flowers!
We draped the 5.5m poles of the tipi with teal chiffon material that draped over the semi circular bespoke table inside structure.
The table held an elevated wall of flowers and foliage above place settings of teal charger plates, smoked glasses and copper cutlery provided by our friends from "up north” Whitehouse Event Crockery - it looked amazing - with lime wash chivari chairs provided by Rosetone Event Hire.
Taking centre stage was our beautiful model - expertly dressed by the talented Sharon Bowden Dryden, hair and make up by French Tasha - the hand painted silk kimono truly rocked with our barefoot bride poised on the bespoke silver birch swing in the middle of the tipi.
Visitors were encouraged to take a seat on the stand to enjoy the design from the many different aspects you could view it from. The bride and grooms that visited the show were in awe of the stand, Wanderlust was photographed by everyone too…the feedback was crazy! I loved it, although boho is not a comfortable theme for me (I’ve always said it is not luxe enough!) I think we managed to create a stand that was boho and luxury all in one!
Proud of my amazingly talented team is an understatement - once again we thought outside the box and bought a whole new concept to the bridal show and the trends for 2018 brides :)
