Inspired by the fantastic world of Lewis Carrol's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", this wedding was an absolute dreamscape. Drawing from the tale's eccentric art style, bride Alexandra designed and commissioned a series of unconventional centrepieces depicting scenes from the novel. Figurines of Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and the White Rabbit sat among lush floral arrangements, one of the many details used to transport Alexandra and Pavel's guests to a fantastical fairytale world for their dream wedding celebration.

Light Matters

LM1

Juxtaposed against contemporary interpretations of Arabic architecture, here we showcase some of this season’s most statement-making gowns. Pattern and light are explored through mashrabiya, a form of latticework that uses geometric shapes to provide shade, resulting in patterned sunlight where light passes through.

The gradual buildup and fusion of a single colour makes the most contemporary and dynamic design statement—especially when juxtaposed against a sleek white backdrop.

Olessia and Anton's ceremony effortlessly married the couple's contemporary aesthetic with timeless elegance. A neutral colour palette and blush-toned roses kept things classic while white orchids, avant-garde silhouettes, and the Royal Conservatory of Music's modern architecture offset the refined details with a current twist.
