Easter is nearly upon us and we are reminiscing about an elegant Easter wedding we had the pleasure of styling in 2011.  Here’s a quick look…

…Vintage Elegance…

…Chocolate and White theme…

…sophisticated, understated and warm…

Date:  24 April 2011 (Easter Sunday)

Venue:  Ballroom of Mantra Salt Resort, Kingscliffe

Number of Guests:  120

Style:  Formal Sit Down Reception


There are many beautiful locations within Salt Village to hold a ceremony.  The bride was concerned about the weather and did not want to make a last minute change on the big day to an indoor location if it went sour so opted to have an indoor ceremony in one third of the ballroom.

Place Settings

Decorative gold charger plates added instant glamour to the place settings.  White linen napkins were folded in a rectangular fashion and decorated with a chocolate satin ribbon with diamante look buckle.

Bonbonniere were small cream coloured boxes with chocolate satin ribbon tied in a bow.  Inside were miniature gold wrapped Easter Eggs.  The boxes were placed in front of each setting.

Our stunning crystal drop candelabras were an elegant focal point for the tables.  Glittering with white taper candles, they bathed the table in soft candlelight.  Candelabras were placed on mirror bases and surrounded with frosted votive candle holders.

Table Numbers

Table numbers were embellished with the same ribbon & diamante buckle to match the napkins.


Chairs were covered with white satin tie back chair covers and decorated with chocolate satin chair bows.  The bridal table had sashes with diamante buckles.

The couple opted for a non-traditional, and very yummy three tier chocolate mud cake.  White Lillies, berries and greenery cascaded from the top tier down to the bottom.

Wishing Well Station

Our signature vintage bird cage wishing well station was a gorgeous finishing touch to the theming of the room.  The groom was an actor, so we stacked old Latin play books on top of each other and placed the bird cages on top.  We also found a tattered dictionary and highlighted the definition of Love for guests to ponder as they deposited their gifts for the happy couple.
