Are you launching anything exclusive at the Atelier that hasn’t previously been seen before?
The first Tara Sofia candle collection was officially launched just a few months ago so Atelier guests will have the chance to get to know an artistic niche brand, which they may not have seen before. Perfect for couples that are looking for exclusive and distinctive elements to embellish their day.
Where do you find your creative inspiration?
My parents are both award-winning designers so I have been surrounded by creativity pretty much from birth! I find myself heavily influenced by my mixed ethnicity – My father is Italian and my mother is a South-African-born Indian. I love to combine cultural elements in my designs to create something beyond the ‘expected’, and I love to incorporate an element of indulgence in everything I do. The candle collection was actually inspired by a personal collection of artworks that I had been working on for some time.
What makes your brand unique and stand out compared to others in the wedding industry?
Having spent many years designing within the home fragrance industry it was my aim to offer something truly exciting; a majestically opulent collection beyond other contemporary brands.
‘The Empress Collection’ boasts supremely blended scents that have been meticulously created to generate maximum fragrance impact. Designed with large spaces and events in mind, they use the highest possible allocation of the highest quality perfumes and are presented in mercury gold glass with 100% copper embossed nameplates.
Why do you think the Quintessentially Weddings Atelier is so special?
It is such a unique way of bringing together the most luxury suppliers so that couples can really experience what they want their wedding day to feel like. Weddings are so personal so it is a wonderful opportunity to meet designers on a more intimate level.
What can the lovely brides and grooms attending the Atelier expect from you this year?
I believe fragrance has an enchanting ability to create an aura of luxury and wonder. I will be showcasing ‘The Empress Collection’ so couples can experience the exceptional scents in person and also benefit from expert advice on scenting their wedding. I will also be featuring an exclusive offer to Atelier couples that decide to use Tara Sofia fragrances at their event.
If you could give your brides (& grooms) any piece of advice what would it be?
Make sure you work with suppliers who are as excited about your wedding as you are – enthusiasm goes a long way! …and never underestimate the power fragrance can have on transforming an atmosphere
