Big is Beautiful

early summer bouquetJessica wanted a luscious big bouquet for her December wedding and Sacha was happy to oblige, with white peonies, snap dragons, hydrangea, garden roses and loads of ferns, foliages and queen annes lace.

Sometimes big is better!

A Summer Wedding Revisited

Most often when doing wedding flowers we are working against the clock and it is a miracle if we manage to snap off one or two  photos of the bouquets, so it is a lovely treat when our newly weds share with us some of their photos of the big day.

Delicate white David Austin and blue moon, roses with hydrangea, Queen Anne’s lace and silver suede were the choice of flowers for the bouquet, buttonholes and table decorations.

A Time for Twine

bright bouquet with twine

This bright and bonny bouquet was bound with jute twine to give a natural rustic finish and to highlight the different textures of  the flower selection.

The buttonholes  all boxed and ready to go were mini stories of the bouquet with billy buttons, green trick, carpe diem roses, freesias and dusty miller.

Heide wedding

white bouquet

Bethany’s wedding was on the day after valentines day….. a challenge to say the least!  Would there be enough flowers left in Melbourne after the busiest day of the year?

 Beth was pretty relaxed about the flower choice as long as they were seasonal and in the white and green palette.

jars

As it turned out we were spoilt for choice with  freesia, bouvardia, veronica, tweedia, dahlia, queen anne’s lace, snow berry and hydrangea all available at market.

The reception was held at Café Vue Heide at the Heide Museum of Modern Art surrounded by the gorgeous gardens and sculpture park and decorated with jars of seasonal flowers.

A Luscious Shade of Pale

white bouquetLuscious was the word Neralee used to describe the look she wanted for her wedding bouquet in shades of white.

table centresIce breaker roses, white hydrangea and snow white lisianthus helped create the luscious ice-creamy domes, gently  woven through with icy sliver suede foliage, while the table centres added  some subtle colour with a blush pink rose and a scattering of blackberries.

cake flowers

The cake made by Katrina at The Cake Company and adorned by an abundance of flowers and berries in  slightly brighter shades of pink  was a show stopper!

There is a  good reason that white on white is such a wedding classic.
