The area is very flat and narrow with a lot of wood, so I felt that we needed to play with texture to soften the space and to design decor pieces that would add height.

Sea-side wedding

The venue for this wedding was a large narrow sun-bathing deck at D-Maris in the south of Turkey - lots of wood and not much else!

Because the deck is so narrow, I needed a lounge seating plan that would help everyone feel included, no matter how far from the dance floor they were...
