Epic rainforest install

After 15 years in the Byron wedding industry, this was actually our biggest production yet! The team effort was amazing, all the botanical styling including constructing the 70 sq m of dense hanging rainforest took all week, from product arrival to final effect. We had 14 florists on the hanging gardens for two days solid! There were masses of large philodendron leaves, rainforest vines, anthurium leaves, bush moss, bromeliads, camellia, tiki fern, leather fern, cordyline tops, succulents of all shapes and sizes.. No flowers at all! It was an all green affair apart from the incredible tropical burgundy heart leaves, yet so much form, shape and texture, so many shades of green and contrasting exotic botany. I'm so lucky to be married to Dan from North Coast Events, it was a super rewarding and spectacular collab for us. Sean from NCE designed the entire framework so it had the structural integrity it required, which held the rainforest in place within the Samikata Tipis. NCE then threaded over 100 bulbs and cage lights through the suspended botanical creation. Because the client was a Snr Events Coordinator for a big company in London, everything about this job had to be high end professional and seamless. Pleased to say we had zero hiccups and so much fun! This all foliage rainforest & succulent themed wedding was a delight to design and install! The Grove is such a beautiful venue, and right around the corner from our studio in stunning Byron Hinterland. Thanks Byron Bay Weddings also for fantastic coordinating and styling.
