Sebastien’s suggestions

The perfect setting for our “lush glam” wedding photoshoot, The One Eighty boasts a white-tile barrel-vaulted ceiling and gold light fixtures, not to mention a beautiful rooftop view of the city, which makes the ideal photo backdrop. Here are a few current wedding trends we’re seeing:

Place settings—The days of a plain white dinner plate and stainless steel cutlery are long gone. They’ve been replaced with a more eclectic approach to setting a table, with a unified colour story—in this case black and gold, using polka-dot plates and modern flatware grounded on a neutral blush linen.

Florals—Palms are definitely back in fashion when it comes to events, especially weddings! They fill up a room, adding life to a space while making you feel transported to a tropical destination. I like to use green and white in floral arrangements since it exudes freshness and sophistication. You can never go wrong with a classic white orchid—they are timeless.

Menu—Food preferences are quite personalized to each couple, but the one element that remains consistent is the art of plating. Focus on wedding guests having that “wow moment” when the plate is lowered in front of them. Whether it is a summer soup garnished with edible flowers or a risotto decorated with fine slices of pecorino, there is refinement in creating the final dish.
