The Events Draping Co. were asked to supply the draping for a wedding curated by the fabulous team at Wedding Concepts. The wedding event venue was the glorious La Paris Estate near Franschhoek. If you’ve never been there, do yourself a favour and check it out. Its beautiful old buildings date from the late seventeenth, early eighteenth century. The wedding reception was in The Lyceum.
A converted barn, it’s a perfect venue for larger weddings or events. Broad and spacious, flooded by light, its raw brick walls and dramatic, arched windows are offset by a series of stunning chandeliers. In this instance, there was no need to drape the walls. Our job was just to soften the look of the steel roof beams, to make them more celebratory.
The roof is about seven metres high, so out came our scaffold and the guys went to work. The huge triangular spaces created by the stark beams were dressed in bridal white and the steel skeleton was transformed. Happy days.
