Our Wedding Co. Show 2013 ‘Enchanted Forest’ Display

It's fun to do wedding shows, but super exhausting!  The real thrill of it all is to see the final product 'live' in front of you when it's only been in your head for far too long!!!

For 2013, we'd been dreaming of doing something very different ... we purposely avoided the traditional 'table & chairs' setup.

What we dreamt up was a kind of "The-Hobbit-meets-Twilight-meets-The-Enchanted-Forest" theme ... we only had a 6ft x 10ft space to pull it off in!

Our bride's bouquet contained garden roses, anemones, viburnum berries, ranunculus, white vanda orchids and delicate narcisus blooms. We custom created the bouquet stem wrap from fabric found at The Workroom. (Thanks to Two Birds Bridesmaid for allowing us to 'steal' their model for this image!)

The anchor elements in our display area included a pair of our giant 12ft tall 'twiggy' trees covered in cork bark, moss, ferns and more than 400 stems of white dendrobium orchids!

The featured floral centrepiece was sitting atop our newest custom creation ... a gigantic metal 'stump' (yes, it's metal!!!) repleat with root veins, bark, tree rings and little knots and knobs ... we love it and we so excited to unveil it this weekend!

So, so, SO many potential uses for this stump ... cake stand, a statement piece with florals on it or thow on a plexi round and turn it into a Sweetheart Table or a candy bar. It also splits into two pieces and can be used at a ceremony/altar site with twin florals on it ... so many things to imagine!

Of course 'Emerald Green' (2013 Colour of the Year) had to make an appearance!

In the wee minutes of the show, we threw together an impromptu photo shoot with our new 'stump and an awesome 'woodland' themed wedding cake from Sweetere!  Uber-awesome photog Nataschia Wielink (our show neighbour for the weekend!) captured a couple of shots!
