Sharon Oyakhilome and Phillip Frimpong – The London Wedding
Carissa Sharon Oyakhilome and her Ghanaian beau, Phillip Frimpong had one of the most glamorous weddings in Nigeria Lagos lekki the ceremony which was broadcasted on loveworld Sat was literally marked as the royal wedding.
Sharon walked alongside her famous father Pastor Chris in her dramatic ball gown dress. The wedding was viewed and witnessed by hundreds and thousands of people; controversially the pastor’s ex-wife was not in the audience. Here are some photographs from the outstanding wedding in Nigeria.
We later received a call from one of her planners to let us know that the couple will also have a wedding here in the UK.
so with a quick turnaround and a design in mind we get to work in sorting out the decor for the wedding of Sharon and Philip Frimpong.
The wedding took place at the Willows in Ilford a large banqueting suite with a grand garden, a bright foyer and lots of space for many guests.
we knew the bride wanted a grand display to match a similar level of design that she had in Nigeria, however we also knew that venue restrictions and layout meant we couldn’t compare the stadium she had used in Nigeria.
Our colour scheme for this wedding was a gold mirror With lots of florals and reflection alongside the very popular ivory and blush a standard for most weddings.
We needed to find centerpieces for 50 tables which make a guest count of over 500 guests.
We chose to mix the centrepieces to keep the decor and design refreshing, creating various levels and a more fluid interesting design.
So our lovely bride had our curved trumpet vases with ivory Rose Bowl the more traditional bell vase with silk floral arrangement and our Karen tran florals stand flowers.
We created a section for the VIP tables around the Dancefloor these featured more of our statement pieces with mirror table tops charger plates and our beautiful gold Arabella chairs.
We opted for a gold mirror dance floor with their custom logo for the dance floor; this was a real feature in the middle of the room.
We designed a logo that fit with the nature of the wedding and in the video you’ll see their first impression when they viewed the room and the dance floor.
The gold mirror dance floors we supply are really fantastic dramatic feature guests and the couple always walk in amazed because it really is a standout, luxury modern idea which we provide. It makes everything in the room reflective more of a statement and very much a lavish affair and choice.
Having the dance floor in the middle of the room it the perfect choice to go in front of a dramatic stage design which for Sharon and her husband Philip we created a multi-step stage for the two of them to sit on.
On the stage we created a great backdrop with a floral Arch and a two-seater sweetheart table. The stage was used by the couple for their speeches and for the meal so it’s an important area in any wedding reception.
When we design a backdrop for a couple we know that anything is possible so we knew the client wanted florals and wanted white design to be incorporated alongside drapes so we merged the two to create this particular backdrop.
We used our custom table which was also in gold mirror to match the dance floor and then lots of dramatic cascading flowers to give it that designer chair covers to go finish.
Outside in the foyer we provided our 3-m custom floral wall with the couples hashtag so that guests could stop and take photos when they arrived. It was a perfect photo area to take pictures in front of. It was great for social media and perfect for entrance photographs.
We build our flowers from scratch and they’re custom-made to match each and every one of our clients requirements.
Make sure you check out the video here to see the couple enter the ballroom once everything was completed.
We used a lot of production and lighting to give the dramatic effect for the couple and the party afterward. Moving Heads, spot lights and up lights around the room all added to make the room really fun and noteworthy. Our in-house production team took care of the lighting with an on-site engineer that moved and regulated the lights to create the best atmosphere for the party.
Be sure to use the video for inspiration on your own wedding or event everything is customisable from the colours of the flowers the style of flowers to the chairs and design.
