A large stage and catwalk formed the centrepiece of the decor, and around the edge of the dance floor, I placed 8m long mirrored tables, each with their own working bar and a swarovski-clad pole dancer who performed as guests ate.

A view of the central catwalk and stage.  We needed a dramatic stage setting for the night's performances so I hung it with opulent curtains and hundreds of lights. The swing hanging above the stage doubled as a table for the bride and groom to sign the wedding license.

Candelabras were topped with ostrich feathers, and mirrored walls helped reflect the light. Napkins were printed with the couple's monogram and tucked into glasses, while my hand-drawn menus were designed in the shape of art-nouveau fans.

'Moulin Rouge' party

The grand ballroom of the Ciragan Palace Kempinski was too traditional for this bride and groom, who wanted to make a crazy, passionate statement about their love.  Together, we created a 'Moulin Rouge' concept complete with can-can performers,  pole dancers and lots of hot pink and red!

A large stage and catwalk formed the centrepiece of the decor, and around the edge of the dance floor, I placed 8m long mirrored tables, each with their own working bar and a swarovski-clad pole dancer who performed as guests ate.
