The Classic Revival

By Ali Bakhtiar

Weddings are no less than a saga of grandeur. Whether invoking the beauy of the Art Deco period or resurrecting the baroque era through the architectural details, venues have become the stage where theatrics unravel.

The Byzantine and Baroque architecture of Venetian museums morph into a grand setting for an epic scale wedding. The round domes paint an awe-inspiring picture and Byzantine art adorns the walls. Gold imagery in the form of angels, floral patterns and baroque motifs fill the walls. Velvet becomes the choice of fabric and sculpted vases dot the venue. Crystal chandeliers join it to form breathtaking ceilings and opulence takes centrestage with heavy floral sculptures lining the setting. Millions of flowers can be packed in heavy bunches to infuse an air of decadence. Central table arrangements can have heavy floral arrangements bedecked with silver and gold plating rimmed Medieval candlebras.

Let history spring to life and play it’s part in exalting the wedding into an unforgettable experience
