Manghee came about in 2009 as a result of two girl advertisers’ desire to escape the hustle and bustle of the corporate world.

Over the years they have been part of many creative projects for both corporate and private clients!

Currently, Manghee is successful as both a corporate customer service unit and a wedding decoration unit. Uniqueness, individual approach and the challenge to properly capture and build on their clients’ ideas are most important to them.

In their portfolio they have more than 300 projects for the creation and implementation of complete decoration concepts with Mall Bulgaria, Fashion Days, All Channels, Collective, Coca-cola, Mall Plaza – Plovdiv and many others.

From just a key word, through a theme or style, the Manghee Atelier team takes on the challenge and creates a complete concept to transform and decorate spaces to achieve the goals of each specific project. Find more information here.

Manghee Weddings is established as a separate entity in 2015 due to the growing interest and need for a specialised approach and communication in this area. The team focuses more on unconventional weddings and experimenting with both venues and materials. Unconventional locations such as meadows, forests or private yards offer the opportunity to create more and more interesting events and greatly excite the team.

Manghee works primarily with natural materials, which they can combine with paper, dried flowers and sheer fabrics. Their style includes boho, rustic, provence, outdoor weddings and well-composed garden lighting.
