A 250 x 70 x 80 cm table, and 250 cm and 80 cm long benches from solid, satined Fuerstenstein were produced for the wedding ceremony venue in the Himmelsgarten gardens. This was created for the 2014 Landesgartenschau horticultural show in Schwäbisch Gmünd. The mainly white shrubbery, and bands made from white Carrara marble create a festive atmosphere for wedding ceremonies which took place outdoors during the horticultural show. Quinces (Cydonia oblonga), which have been a symbol of marriage, love, happiness and longevity for hundreds of years, and were often given as marriage presents in ancient times, were also planted.
