Taking the woodland setting a inspiration, I designed this invitation in the form of a wooden log, with a naive hand-painted floral motif and a fun swivel twist.
Kemer Country Orman Evi, a small grass area surrounded by woodland, was exactly the kind of rustic country atmosphere the bride and groom were looking for.
The bride and groom wanted to keep the place feeling very relaxed and informal, with traditional wooden furniture and natural local greenery for flowers. I seated young guests near the large dance floor, and older guests sat at flower-shaped table formations under hanging light 'gazebos'.
The couple got married under the trees on a stage covered in ferns, logs, moss and candles.
The family own a ceramics firm so I designed plates for each of the courses.
The family own a furniture-production firm so I worked with the family to custom-design and produce all the furniture.
Mixing the chair styles helped create a more informal boho feel.
Older guests sat at flower-shaped table arrangements beneath 'gazebos' of sparkling fairy lights.

A Marriage of Love and Art
When this couple told us they wanted a destination wedding and that they loved art and classical music, we couldn't think of a more perfect destination than the world-famous Belvedere Palace in Vienna, host to many a classical concert and home to a world-renowned art collection including Gustav Klimt's 'The Kiss'.
Seen here is the Belvedere Palace, with one of its famous Sphinx statues guarding the ornate gardens.
We used the sphinx to create a suitably royal monogram for the couple.
The sphinx design featured on the couple's invitation and wedding stationery.
Our visual for the wedding reception feast, to be held in the main ballroom.
We created a magical wedding ceremony setting on the middle landing of the palace's ornate staircase, so guests stood on the stairs to watch.
After the ceremony, guests made their way up through the palace's galleries, admiring the jaw-dropping art collection including Klimt's 'The Kiss' until they reached these escort card tables, positioned between romantic statues representing love and passion.
After cocktails, we opened the doors to the ballroom and guests made their way to their tables to the strains of Viennese classical music.
