V225: CECI INSPIRATIONS – MOONRISE MAGIC

MOONRISE MAGIC

I love a bride who does things differently, and this week is no exception. Two issues ago you met Erica, who had an unconventional ceremony and wedding celebration, and this week we’re introducing you to Signe and Scott, who were all about making an individual, unique statement with their wedding invitations. (Call me a woman of many tastes – I also have a soft spot for the opulent and romantic, like Ceci Bride Tara’s affair!)

Luxury can be fun, and we set out to prove that the minute Signe and Scott told us their obsession: Moonrise Kingdom, film director Wes Anderson’s summer camp-based love story. Inspired by the movie’s unique elements – from the characters’ various camp activities to the film’s yellow-and-blue color palette and symmetrical aesthetic – we delivered an invitation on thick, luxurious cardstock that brought the couple’s passion to life. The wedding took up a whole weekend (did I mention it was held in Denmark?), so we made it our mission to present all the events surrounding their wedding in a similarly stylish way. Costume rehearsal dinner, anyone?

One of the best parts of this job is living vicariously through our clients – and now you can, too. Grab your costume and come along for the fun ride!

Ceci

P.S. Thanks to Ditte Capion for capturing all the magic!

V225: GREAT ESCAPES – HOLCKENHAVN CASTLE, NYBORG, DENMARK

Great Escapes

Holckenhavn Castle, Nyborg, Denmark

Holckenhavn Castle is a manor house located next to Holckenhavn Fjord, an arm of the Great Belt, just south of Nyborg on the east coast of Funen, Denmark. The current Renaissance castle was built in the late 16th and early 17th century by three consecutive owners. Previously known both as Ulfeldtsholm and Ellensborg, it received its current name in 1672 when it was acquired by Eiler Holck, who at the same time founded the Barony of Holckenhavn. The estate has been in the possession of his family ever since.

The main building is rented out as a venue for conferences, private celebrations and other events. The estate covers approximately 900 hectares of which about 380 hectares are forest and about 400 hectares are agricultural land which is leased out. A number of smaller houses and other buildings also belong to the estate and are rented out. The 12 hectare park is open to the public.
