With Binky Felstead and Max Darnton’s wedding being held in Corfu, Moriarty was excited to bring their flare to the island. Their creative events experience enabled them to design a day reflective of the couple’s personal style and be in keeping with the stunning location. Binky trusted Moriarty and stated, ‘using their expertise and knowledge, I knew our vision would be transformed into a reality.’ One key element to the day in which beautiful bespoke details were showcased was within the tablescapes. They used a range of colours, textures, and tones to add depth and create an overall, wonderful visual experience for all guests.

The design inspiration
Inspired by the Mediterranean, Moriarty wanted to incorporate traditional features within their design. Binky and Max fell in love with the island and emphasised how important it was to keep the essence of Corfu within their wedding. This concept was very much the starting point for the creative planning journey and was key in the inspiration for the invitations. These were designed by Ruth Kaye Design with hand-drawn icons reflecting the location, including various shellfish, flowers, lemons and the blue of the coast. This became the staple of the creative and was carried throughout the styling of the event as a whole.
Pastel and soft colours were added to ensure a cohesive theme throughout. Combining the crisp wedding style of the couple, while also including contemporary Greek touches to add a unique spark.
Moriarty started this journey working closely with award-winning florist Leonidas Rammos. Using Masticha leaf and a variety of bud vases filled with various delicate colours and textures, the perfect foliage dream was created. The wild greenery in the ceiling and along the dining tables added a rustic feel to The White House Restaurant, while the florals, including Jasmine and Roses, added a pop of white and lifted the space. Blush candles were scattered throughout, adding depth to the design whilst also making the space feel warmer and more intimate, immersing guests in the Grecian beauty surrounding them.
Handwritten deep blue Agate escort stones were adorned with white calligraphy ink and were placed to the left of each place setting. They complemented the turquoise ocean surrounding the venue as well as being a lovely keepsake. Each individual place setting was then completed with a white napkin, styled with a nautical-inspired napkin ring. Perfect for the guests to wave upon the arrival of Binky and Max into the dining area. A tradition which was really important to the couple, spreading a celebratory and party atmosphere throughout the space.
The tables were finished off with names based on meaningful memories of the couple, including the name of their beloved dog Pedro, adding to the personalised touches of the day. Guests were guided to their seats via blue and white escort cards pinned into local Greek lemons. The lemons were perfectly displayed in an ornate decorative boat. ‘The consideration and eye for detail created our dream wedding day whilst incorporating our personal style with a hint of Corfu.’
The overall look and feel of the wedding came together to create a harmonious setting and brought the bride and groom’s vision to life. They worked with the beautiful surroundings to encapsulate the essence of Corfu whilst creating a totally unique day for the couple. Moriarty were there to remove all stresses and ensure each element was a smooth and seamless experience for everyone. ‘We didn’t have to worry about a thing all week, we could just relax and have the best time with our friends.’ They designed the perfect setting for the wedding, creating memories for all that will last a lifetime.
