Working with a Venetian Masquerade theme, the ideal venue selected was an old church. Working with the surroundings we wanted to create a gothic and moody atmosphere with Phantom of the Opera as our inspiration.
The colours used were a warm combination of red and gold to set the atmosphere. On entry low fog covered the entrance to emulate the famous scene from Phantom of the Opera. We made use of the beautiful domed ceiling of the church and filled it with moving mirror balls to create a star-like effect. On the tables sat large gold ornate birdcages and impressive 25 armed candelabras to add grandeur to the setting. To create mystique the wings of the church were left draped until after dinner when they were pulled back to reveal a large dessert station, a cocktail bar and additional entertainment.
