Wanting his proposal to go smoothly on the day, Oliver contacted the Flammeum Weddings team to help with planning. He wanted to make Elizabeth feel special and express his love to her. Studio Brzak team were in charge of the decorations around the pool area where the proposal was to take place. The secluded spot between two olive groves was chosen to setup a lovely table for two. The styling idea was to combine a romantic atmosphere with a rustic touch, embracing the surrounding landscape and nature.
