Having decorated many weddings at Clifford Pier, we knew the key focal point to decorate is the privacy screen - a partition that divides the lobby entrance from the wedding banquet, since there is no door or wall to demarcate the area. This privacy screen serves as a backdrop that greets their guests first thing upon arrival, while giving them a divider to separate their wedding from the public guests and having the space to themselves.
The thought process behind this was not a straightforward one. An obvious way to create the screen is to have a standard carpentry backdrop. However, it's been way overdone and common. Secondly, since the solemnization ceremony was to be held one the reverse side of this partition, we need to design a double-sided wall decoration.
Eventually, we came to this idea of having a lush greenery installation on the reverse side of the wall to serve as their backdrop, while having spot lights to cast and throw shadows on the front view. We also broke the wall into multiple layers so to have more depth and allow a glimpse on the interior at the side angle.
To be able to cast those beautiful shadows, we brought in real trees and shrubs directly from nature. We focused on textures more than flower types as the rest of the wedding will be all white and floral heavy.
As for the stage, we created an all-white floral installation that framed the circular platform, which also serves as the perfect backdrop for the groom to perform a saxophone piece for this bride.
