The wedding of Mohamed and Aqeelah at Memoire

Wedding at Memoire

Aqeelah was very specific about what she wanted for her special day; a fairytale winter wonderland themed wedding with hues of blue, lots of candles, a dramatic bridal bouquet and a custom made aisle to fit her regal Enzoani dress. The wedding was supposed to be in June 2020 but COVID happened and it was moved to December 2020.

Despite happening in summer, the team at Weddings by Esmie still managed to bring in the Winter Wonderland look and feel that the bride envisioned. Esmie absolutely loved styling and designing this wedding and it made a huge positive impact to her career. It was such a great privilege and honour for her to work with the bride and groom and she was very happy that the couple absolutely loved the end product. “They specifically wanted something original, unique and dreamy and I am happy to say it was a fairytale come true.” – Esmie Chiseko

From the Bride

Aqeelah had the following to say about Esmie and the team behind her dream wedding, “The decor included a custom made aisle, that would be wide enough for my train, as my Enzoani dress had a double train.
Esmie even came to my dress fitting to measure the train to make sure that the aisle would be big enough. The aisle had plinths on either side with winter trees, candles and votives, it was absolutely beautiful.”

“Esmie co-ordinated with Socialight to make sure the lighting would have an ethereal feel and give the feeling of a winter wonderland. She also organised all the furniture, lounge pockets for the garden area, the specific chairs I wanted for my guests as I noticed that a lot of weddings have one main table with comfortable and high end chairs while the rest of the guests sit on plastic or tiffany chairs. I wanted madison chairs for every guest and Esmie made it happen.”

“Esmie also had my stage made, had the corners draped in white chiffon and created flowers arrangements encircling the edges. Everything we did, we wanted it to be original, we wanted to be the first to try new things and we wanted to set trends, from the photo booth to the decor, to the flowers, to my shoes. We wanted to be original.”

“WeddingTunes did my beautiful gloss white dance floor and Esmie has our names put in the middle. It would be fair to say Esmie handled absolutely everything. I will be forever grateful to her as she is the engineer of my dream.”
