Classy bohemian at burkill

We had the pleasure of doing another burkill hall event.
It was for our gorgeous couple Lisa and Carlos.
 They're both of mixed heritages, with exotic good looks.
Yet the most striking thing about them is their effortless beauty.

Calm and easygoing, they wanted a beautiful celebration that is casual, intimate and eclectic.
So we came up with a bohemian number...with a classy twist.

Here's to Lisa and Carlos.
May your journey ahead be filled with plenty of blessings and love.

 Harmonizing an eclectic mix of colours, patterns, flora and accessories isnt as easy as it seems.
There is always a chance that it might end up looking messy and frugal.
Furthermore, with a beautiful venue like burkill, it would have been too easy for us to become complacent, and risk producing a bohemian look that is not pulled together.

We remember clearly telling ourselves to not stand on our laurels,
and to continue seeing to every single detail, leaving no stones unturned.
Glad we had a great team to help execute our plan and vision.

The dais.

The reception area at top floor.

The wedding cake.

 In place of a typical manicured fondant wedding cake,
we featured a raw looking cake adorned with wild flowers instead.
We commissioned our friend Insyirah to bake us a very raw looking
 (but oh so tasty) layered cream cake...
and invited (or forced, rather) our other family friend Hestee to style it,
with whatever wild flowers and cake stands we provided. 
She did a splendid job! 
But we were of course not surprised, 
always having known her to be artistic like her designer dad.

 Thanks Insyirah and Hestee! :)

The reception area at ground floor.

It was styled to be more garden-like...
to harmonize with the surrounding flora and manicured lawns.

The dessert isle, styled by Mariah & Sham.
Our mish mash of pastries were pulled together from various trusted sources, 
namely Safiyya Mediterranean, Charmbakes, Insyirah and Simplynuha.

We used to have to prepare our own pastries to fit our designs.
Nowadays however, we're only too glad to be able to tap on the great talents 
of other mushrooming businesses and individuals out there.

We've had the pleasure of more family and friends joining us on this project.
Thanks Hestee, Sharifah, Farhaty, Syakirah, Fadzli, Ilham,
Haris and Didi, for all the hardwork and laughter! :)

Our other awesome friends, Mint, Shida and Kinah,
along with our cousin munir who has gone on to study medicine,
were missed....
