Real Weddings: Uwaila & Solanke

Tuesday, 17 August 2010

Venue: Lagoon Restaurant , Victoria Island , Lagos

This is hands down one of the classiest weddings we've had the honour of designing. Uwaila is stunning and was one organized, detail orientated bride.
So one of the phases I went through was loving butterflies and incorporating this as much as possible into my d├ęcor at the time. Good enough, Uwaila wanted a fresh, clean 'springy' design and chose Yellow and green as theme colours. These are very vivid colours together and I decided to break it up using a favourite accessory of mine- white space! 
There were lots of charming touches to this wedding including the an ice sculpture of the couples which incredibly held up in Lagos temperatures -bride's own secret- ice sculpture (if she's not revealing the secret, then neither are we!!), the forest green carpeted walkway with yellow petals, the almost CIA-like seating arrangements, I could go on and on but it was just really one of those weddings where everything went absolutely perfectly.


The entire ambience of the ceremonies and reception was certainly one of simple elegance and we are smitten indeed by this real wedding.
