How to create a Destination Wedding without needing to Travel!
With Covid19, it's difficult to plan a Destination wedding. So just for during this special period, why not bringing the destination to you. So I wanted to create a "destination wedding in your hometown". A Latin Romance inspired wedding can be anywhere now, even in Switzerland!
As a destination wedding planner it was sad to observe how couples are emotionally suffering from postponing their destination wedding. I wanted to recreate a Latin romantic Wedding and plan it in a Swiss castle. The color palette is warm and moody.
We selected the Castle "Schloss Pratteln" in Basel, Switzerland because not only was most of the castle outdoors but as well because of the stunning old walls and flooring. Looking at it made you think that you were in Spain!
Advice for brides that can't have their destination wedding - get creative and start sourcing worldwide decor to make it authentic and start creating your dream.
Our team of vendors for this styled shooting was mind-blowing! We were incredibly in sync and everything went smooth and we were all aligned on the same mood and vibe! That was my favorite part of the shooting, to inspire and get inspired by great talents! I took so many handheld fans as decor and just DIY clipped them everywhere we found suitable - from the chair backs, to the bouquet fans, to the walls, tablescapes and cake holders. It was fun! The most important is to work with vendors that have a vibe together and are on the same wave length. We inspired each other, cheered each other and got high from each others talents and passion! It was the best combination!
Where to begin.. This designer is the magic creator, killed it and not just made a stunning cake but she baked a second cake just so we can eat it while we were starring the beautiful created cake during the shoot. She uses only the best and natural ingredients, baked with love and the taste was just overly yummy. It was for sure not just a wedding cake. It was THE wedding cake.
The Bling Mask..
Its a huge trend in Hong Kong to walk around in those and just seeing that this trend has not yet arrived to Europe, something I definitely wanted to incorporate and so on-theme with covid so this got me selling Bling Masks on the side too.
