One of the most important accessories of a bride is her bouquet. It definitely is something that will show not only her personality but her style as well. I was hopelessly smitten when Dylan of Vatel Manila sent over pictures of these customized and so-gorgeous-beyond-words bouquets. And if there was such a thing as a bouquet do-over, I might just find myself running to them for a little bit of elegant ooomph and understated pizzazz! We’re so glad we can show their impeccable work here at B&B. You’ll be amazed how these floral fancies will tickle your Monday morning.
A little something from Vatel Manila:
OUR STYLE IS YOUR STYLE //
Our aesthetic can be described as ‘refined simplicity’. We are not huge fans of production-number weddings that clearly define what event styling is now in Manila. We are fans of small, cozy spaces and for larger events, clean spaces with very minimal details. Every venue is a canvass for us to transform using simple but lovely setups that define you and your personal style.
OUR UNIQUE OFFER//
For now, we are focused on doing entourage flowers more than doing reception or church setups. Over the years, we have striven to produce unique bridal bouquet designs that are never repeated. The design is made for you and you alone. It will not be repeated for another bride.
OUR LOOK //
Vatel Manila is into the SoCal (Southern California) look: fresh, oftentimes loose, airy, feminine arrangements that are full of character and texture. Our bouquets are a marriage of the world’s best flowers and those coming from local flower farms. We strive to strike a balance between meeting the requirements for function & beauty, as well as upholding our duty to support the environment and promoting job creation for Filipino flower farmers.
INSPIRED BY THE WORLD //
In doing design, we get our inspiration from abroad where a lot of truly inspired ideas come from. Since there is a tendency for local businesses to copy each other’s works, we feel that there is a need to be unique in every way (an understatement!) and to promote a culture of simplicity and good taste in every aspect of design.
Apart from working on ideas, we also aim to educate. “The biggest challenge of design is to be able to work with your clients whose needs you have to answer. The main work of a designer is to police and polish the client’s style.” (Ito Kish)
UPPING THE ANTE EVERY TIME, ALL THE TIME //
We are our own severe judge and taskmaster. We despise stagnation. We try not to follow trends yet still be in fashion. Our raison d’etre is to bring beauty to Philippine weddings. As a huge fan of architecture, we likewise subscribe to the Vitruvian design model: Utilitas, firmitas et venustas. Functionality, Quality, and Impact.
With these things in mind, do know that you’re in safe hands with us.
