Moroccan Purples and Blues at the Finca de la Concepcion

Finca de la Concepcion is one of our favourite venues and we were delighted to plan, coordinate and design Sheena and David´s wedding at this stunning venue.

Our design brief was a Moroccan theme using purples and blues as Sheena had fallen in love with one of our previous events at the Puente Romano hotel.  This colour combination was to also include hints of pinks and golds.

 Sheena also wanted to introduce a TV/film theme, as this is David´s profession, and to incorporate wine corks and loved the idea of using wine glasses or cocktail glasses as centrepieces.

The tables looked stunning dressed with purple and Mediterranean blue table covers and the floral centrepieces complimented the colour scheme beautifully.  We used a mixture of tall cylinders filled with lilac water and orchids and Sheena wanted to continue the cocktail/wine theme so half the tables were decorated with martinis filled with a beautiful mix of florals by Loraine.

The centrepieces were surrounded with coloured Moroccan tealights in shades of golds, blues and pinks.

Sheena´s mother created pretty handwritten Moroccan placecards which were set into champagne corks for each place setting and each table was named after a different TV production David was associated with.  Our famous handwritten signs finished off the wedding beautifully included a handwritten menu, a welcome sign, cigar bar menu and a date line.

We loved the aisle decorated with giant gold and purple balloons to add some fun to the decor.  

Our thanks to David Toms for sending us these photos to share with you.
