Yay!! We are half way through the week and today the Knot & Pop ladies share their fun ideas for the decorations board in this ‘Around the World’ themed wedding.
I met Susie last summer as her and Claire were just embarking on the Knot & Pop journey. Since then this clever duo have created some seriously lust-worthy bespoke events and styled shoots, with fun, originality and creativity always at the heart of all they do!
Over to Knot & Pop to tell you more…
Drawing from the many lands that this couple will visit, we wanted to channel the sense of wanderlust and feature the wealth of local artisans within each country.

A traditional style marquee, sides opened to the elements, and Moroccan lanterns casting a warm glow as if at sunset, sets the scene for the travel loving couple and their adventure ahead. For décor, we looked to Morocco for their tile-tastic finishings that appear as individual drinks coasters along table-tops, or grouped together to form the most visual of table centres. Clusters of potted plants and cacti dress tables, nodding to the arid desert-scapes of both Morocco and the Navajo region, with tapered candles and gold candle-sticks dotted across sociable banquet tables. Rich in texture, rugs line the ceremony aisle and sit beneath the sweet heart table, with lounge areas featuring low level rattan seating, in neutral shades of the purest white and straw, and the quintessential hammock for early morning slumbers.
Furthering the sense of local craft that each area is famed for, a backdrop of woven plates from South Africa form the photobooth back-drop with floral Balinese neck garlands, African masks and Indian head-dresses used as props for the fun photos. Escort cards appear as zebra-like striped feathers, nettled into sand with a small tag with name and table attached to each. Feathers re-appear both as garlands draped across the marquee and as name cards, placed in the centre of Navajo print plates, with later dessert and cake served from banana leaves.
For favours, each guest receives an African beaded bracelet placed around a soft grey linen napkin, or an animal ornament of one of the many they’ll see on their travels. The guest book cements the sense of their journey ahead with an antique globe painted, and a calligraphed message for guests to ‘Wish The Couple Well On Their Life-Long Adventure Together’.
Just too many lovely ideas, if only our English weather would play ball so we could all dine beside the beach to a beautiful coral sunset backdrop! To see more pretty from Knot & Pop check out their lovely site!
Tomorrow, the amazing Sydney based florist Holly from The Flower Drum has put together a floral explosion of loveliness in her flower board – see you then!
