We are over the moon that our Glitterati Style File photoshoot is featured in the latest issue of WedLuxe! Our photo shoot is inspired by the quintessential Paris Style of interior design, it’s a city with historical architecture and effortlessly elegant interiors. The setting of our shoot took place at The Sovereign Ballroom at the Omni King Edward Hotel, where it featured luxurious elements of a signature Hausmannian apartment in Paris with all of the charm of old world Paris – Elaborate custom mouldings, herringbone and parquet wood floors and sparkling crystal chandeliers. The high ceilings and large windows added more classic French Style to the grand ballroom as well the decorative plasterwork.
The ceremony set up was nothing short of magic. Lush greenery defined the arch and pops of white roses and flowers against the tall white walls with white decorative mouldings to add contrast.

The reception space was full of textural accents – Sumptuous French blue velvet linens draped over round tables with beautiful minimalist tree centrepieces surrounded by the romantic glow of candlelight and small roses in gold vases.  Gold flatware paired with ornate charger plates with decorative designs similar to the decorative mouldings on the walls and ceilings, layered with mismatched antique china in gold and blue are reminiscent of what you might find at one of Paris’ famous antique markets of Clingnancourt.

The intricate ceiling and wall mouldings carried throughout the shoot, they can be found in stationery and cake, from the couple’s monogram to the details of the wedding cake.

Thank you for the team amazing for bringing this shoot to life.

Last month we had so much fun planning a very special birthday party at the Broadview Hotel on Queen Street East! The theme was disco, full of 70s music and of course disco balls!

All photos were taken by Jackson at Ikonica. Design, including the stunning balloon/discoball ceiling and surrounding lounges all by Artam Design. EpiQVision kept the audio/visual strong all evening.

The party had a video DJ to show classic music videos, 70s dance moves and great music to keep the party going.

We also had performers, who not only greeted guests as they arrived and performed for the birthday girl, but also offered dancing lessons to get the party started.

Inspired by the beauty of nature in Spring, we produced a style shoot at the Shangri-La full of delicate colours and tones, and blossoms in bloom. Check out more details below, and be sure to see the full details on WedLuxe! All photos were taken by Melanie at Verve Photo Co. White tones dominated this shoot, with touches of gold and pink. The gorgeous, full floral design added the feeling of Spring to the table. Floral by the talented Sara Baigs

The table ware reinforced the white and gold colour scheme, with gorgeous gold details and cutlery.

The cake was central to the design, and acted as a focus point. With full floral providing a stunning backdrop, the cake by Thuy and Thi took center stage.

++

Much like the cake’s attention to detail, it’s the little things that bring a theme to life. We placed beautiful Spring details throughout the shoot to really bring that feeling of nature and the refreshing aspects of Spring.

+++++

The gold elements really brought this all together, adding to the earthy nature tones but also providing a level of luxury and appeal into the mix.

++

The dress was the perfect combination of all the themes, with it’s delicate straps and the perfect amount of pink undertones to pull it all together.

+

Hair and make-up carried through the pretty in pink aspects from the dress to create this romantic look by Satine Studio and modeled by the beautiful Garnet from Spot6 with accessories by The Loved One.

+++

The Shangri-La‘s massive windows allowed the sun to complete this event look.

Not to mention the Shangri-La’s kitchen and it’s skilled cuisine on display.

And finally, the stationary provided by Maison Maquette added texture and more floral fun to the overall shoot.
