Setting – Space – Themes

  1. Elegant, Ethereal & Whimsical (The natural look) – Metallic or Copper lanterns at an outdoor reception or on a rustic table.
  2. Dreamy, Romantic & Intimate – Powerful lighting, the use of pendant lights with bare ‘Edison’ bulbs, modern and vintage chandeliers and candelabras to cast a soft glow.
  3. Rectangular Tables vs Round Tables – A mix of long tables surrounded by smaller square and round tables with added lounge areas to create more of an intimate feeling.
  4. Peace & Tranquility – A gentle touch of neutral colours, soft fabrics,  clean open space, hanging installations and photo backdrops.

 Colour – Shape – Texture

  1. Metallic & Geometric (The Head Turner) – a Copper, rose gold, gold, black iron or silver painted cake for the young and edgy couple with either their favourite colour, intials or a pattern. Complimenting the metallic concept are geometric shapes which is an upcoming trend to have three-dimensional designs or simple hexagon painted on your cake.
  2. Naked & Old School – Mostly sponge cakes half covered with traditional buttercream frosting or none at all, with either monograms or rosette similar to one at your grandparents wedding.

Aleit and his team believe that the most important element of a wedding day is how the guests are made to feel ‘shivers down their spine’ or ‘gooseflesh’. If there is at least one such moment for every guest, then they know they have achieved their goal.
