Nadine and Lorenzo initially wanted to fly 100 of their wedding guests to Paris but decided instead to include more guests and the expertise of Marge B, owner of Event Styling, to create a showcase wedding in Durban.
Nadine Pillay is the only child of Leon & Rae Pillay, owners of Lihlelight, and was given the wedding of her dreams which has been in preparation for the past 2 years. Lorenzo proposed to his wife on the French Bridge at the beginning of 2014, and the couple are a fine combination of leadership and discipline with Nadine the head honcho at Lihlelight and Lorenzo a Psychology Honours Graduate who teaches Karate.
The newly married couple who are presently on honeymoon in London, are doing what they both love doing - travel. Their favourite destination being Paris, of course.
This unconventional couple fell in love with French cuisine, fashion, culture and ambience all of which was encapsulated into their dreamy wedding celebration. They wanted to incorporate Parisian chic with quirky and comfortable fun, and this was depicted though stylized pink flamingos and miniature French flags by the Style Team at ES. Décor included Parisian street lamps, overflowing greenery and imported roses, not to mention the finest French champagne.
Marge B, Creative Director of Event styling said in her own telling that Nadine was in awe the entire time. Thanks to Marge B and the bride’s parents for bringing her dream wedding to life.
