Back in January we had the pleasure of working with Asian Fusion Weddings to create this shoot inspired by Chinese New Year. We created this traditional table scape, as well as a modern set, both inspired by Oriental design.

We were inspired by Ikebana style for our traditional pieces, emphasizing shape, line and form as well as minimalism. The use of line was created by grouping of snake grass, with a focal point being created by clustering cymbidium orchids in a deep red.

In Chinese culture red plays a vital role, it is associated with success, loyalty, honor, fertility, and love, amongst others. Because of this, decorations at Chinese weddings are generally in red, which we stayed true to in our design, while combining with gold vases, which is also a symbolic colour, portraying wealth and fortune.
