This was, probably, one of the most extraordinary projects in terms of communicating with the client. I only spoke with the bride once over WhatsApp. And that was it.
The couple was very short on funds, but the planner decided to call for me, knowing that I can create a very special design with a small budget. Considering such a rich theme like boho, especially at a historical Spanish villa, you hardly need to say anything else.
Cortaderia, or Pampas Grass, was used as base, since it grows in abundance in Spain and the wedding was happening right when it “blooms” most. And, of course, it is nearly always used in boho designs.
The patio was chosen for the ceremony, where small compositions of pampas grass, gladioli, astrantia, snapdragon, chrysanthemums and astilbe were placed. Pistachios and pepper were used as greens (by the way, I posted a lot of stories, showing how big bunches of greenery are being sold at a base in Spain for the smallest price).
One of my old “dreams” came true at the wedding dinner – to design the reception in a stone structure, resembling an arbor. I chose a rough wooden table an natural cross back chairs. Compositions of pampas grass, astrantia, astilbe, veronica and chrysanthemums served as decor. Of course, you can’t forget about cutlery and sweet details like the wedding venue and table cards. Several candelabras and fairy lights added a cozy atmosphere.
I can’t fail to mention the amazing photographer and videographer, who would patiently take photos of my flat-lays and who were a pleasure to work with.
I want to repeat what I’ve said already and what has even been published in a magazine as a part of my interview. If you have a tight budget, the most important thing is to find a professional who will help you to use and distribute it, show which zones to use and what to highlight.
