In our first collaboration with the visionary Hassan Abdullah from Les Trois Garcons, the bride told us her perfect wedding would be the woodland-set wedding from the Twilight movie.
We used 2 very similar venues at Kensington & Kew orangeries and briefed the team at Wild at Heart that we wanted a really frothy romantic arch for the focal point of the wedding ceremony at Kensington. Incredibly, they moved this lock, stock & barrel from one venue to the other.
We wanted guests to feel they were dining in a romantic forest clearing.
We created the illusion by using a stunning bark bar topped with the most incredible tree trunk arrangement, bursting with moss and stunning woodland flowers. We further suspended guests’ disbelief by surrounding the diners with projections of a moving forest with gently falling leaves on the walls and ceiling.
We sourced heavenly wisteria trees which were built between tables and & tracked down the actual floral arch from the Twilight premiere.
Tableware to enhance the look came from Jones & Les Trois Garcons and calligraphy for the placements added to the romantic theme.
The team at Wild at Heart created 2 incredible blossom trees, which were hung with hand-calligraphied escort cards & vintage keys. They were not only stunningly beautiful but a fun & interactive icebreaker when guests arrived for the initial black tie drinks reception.
We only had 2 hours at Kew gardens to create all of this, so it was a real achievement by everyone involved in the production. Special honours go to Nikki’s amazing team who moved so many of the arrangements across town from Kensington in time to reuse at Kew!
