Last month, Raffaele Ciuca, a Melbourne, Australia bridal retailer, launched the MUSE by BERTA collection. Featuring warm colors, soft materials and floaty silhouettes, the collection is 100% handmade in Israel and has the ever-popular bohemian/vintage vibe.
Waiters in tuxedos and black velvet bowties served pomegranate ginger palomas as guests arrived. For lunch, guests enjoyed canapés of black rice crisp, ocean trout, salmon pearls, celery cress. Seared Port Phillip Bay scallop, coconut and sweet pumpkin, salsify and shiso and camomile tea smoked quail taro chip, quince relish roamed the room on mirrored trays.
The event also showcased some other wedding trends such as black on black invitations, all black plates, cutlery and napkins, accented with fresh peonies and rich, dark floral arrangements creating a wintery and romantic mood.
