We are delighted to share Part 2 of Karin and Rishad´s fabulous wedding held here in Malaga just in time for the weekend.  Following on from a fun filled pre-wedding party the actual wedding day arrived greeted by a gorgeously hot summer day in Malaga with cloudless blue skies.

When you thought a party could get no better, it did!  

The celebrations began with the ceremony on the patio of the Hacienda La Biznaga held under a beautiful white canopy to keep the guests shaded from the hot August Spanish sunshine.  Refreshing lemonades and waters were given to each guest as they arrived and a paddle fan with the Order of Service, beautifully designed by Nulkinulks, was placed on each chair.

The ceremony was followed by a cocktail including an ice cream van to help keep the guests cool and the Hacienda La Biznaga provided lots of delicious canapes.  

All the table seating plans were hanging from the courtyard lanterns and created a beautiful magical effect as they were designed as circular hanging garlands which I had seen on a previous photoshoot by Nulkinulks and wanted to use for Karin´s wedding as I knew she loved hanging garlands and flowers.  The menu was handwritten by Isabel onto a large blackboard in gold and purples, which is always a fabulous idea to save printing menus for every place setting for a larger wedding party.

Dinner followed inside the Hacienda where we designed a more contemporary Sex in the City theme using a gold and purple colour scheme for the wow factor.
The venue was washed in purple lighting and tall glass cylinders topped with purple and white orchid arrangements bought the room to life.   We used gold chairs to pull the colours together and each napkin was tied with a purple ribbon.

The party well and truly got underway with music and lighting from Nigel at Chez Vous and a delicious cake designed by Sweet Things By Fi along with some gold glitter dusted fortune cookies, of which I did not steal one 🙂
We would like to thank all the suppliers who were involved with this wedding and Dan at Chennergy Photography for these photos allowing us to share this fantastic wedding with you.

An Indian Wedding in Malaga by Reviva Part 1

I am not sure where to start with this fabulous two day wedding celebration for the most wonderful and charming couple, Karin and Rishad.

What a ball we had and what fun planning, styling and organising their wedding here in Malaga during the hazy, hot summer month of August.

But let´s start at the torture inflicted on Rishad as love these bits of our weddings! 🙂  

The poor lads had to brush their teeth with Wasabi paste, drink Tabasco infused drinks and have their legs waxed, to name but a few torturous tests the scheming bridesmaids had come up with. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the groom and his male entourage being put to the test with some well thought out games by the not so well meaning bridesmaids to win their brides!!

But we start this two part blog post with the pre wedding celebrations of a wonderful Sangeet and Mendhi evening at the Palacio de Monte Miramar.

Such a fabulously fun evening to start the wedding celebrations.  
Our thanks to Chez Vous for the lighting and chill outs and to the fabulous venue Palacio de Monte Miramar for hosting such a wonderful evening and to the guests for providing such fun dances and entertainment.

Our gorgeous images are courtesy of the famous worldwide photographer Dan Chennergy from Belgium and we will be blogging part two of this wedding very shortly to share with you!  

Wedding Centrepiece Trends for 2014

November 8th, 2013 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Wedding Centrepiece Trends for 2014”

Recently I have noticed a changing trend in table centrepieces for weddings, parties and even dressing your tables at home this Christmas.  

Gone are the small vintage style bits and bobs and supposedly budget friendly glass bottles dotted around with different flowers in, I cannot ever say I was a huge fan of this look and won´t be sad to see it´s passing.  

Wedding tables in particular are already busy enough with a lot of glassware so to just add more glassware in the form of different bottles, for me, has never really ticked my box and certainly does not have the wow factor.  Perhaps cute on a kitchen windowsill or a shop display but not for a celebration.

As a designer, I prefer statements.  
Keeping it simple and clean with a statement centrepiece, some gorgeous linens and well thought out details, such as the table stationery, always screams style. 

 One large statement rather than a mix of nothingness always gives so much more impact. 

It does not have to be a huge floral arrangement, perhaps a striking piece of glassware housing a gorgeous candle, as everyone knows I love candles and twinkling things, but we are loving these loose, low and sprawling table centrepieces set into pretty containers such as stemmed glass bowls or urn style vases.

There are so many ways you can create these centrepieces perhaps incorporating fruits and twigs combined with lots of foliage and mixed with some gorgeous florals.

The prices do not need to be sky high if you use these elements and think outside the box for materials and I love the loose style of these arrangements.

These floral arrangement styles remind me of the images in historical paintings of the medieval banquets and we will see a lot more of this style centrepiece popping up in 2014.

These fabulous images were found on Snippet and Ink in conjunction with Ariella Chezar Floral Workshops and the rest on Pinterest.
