Pastel greens including sage combined with pastel blush tones are a great way to create an earthy warm and peaceful theme to your wedding. There are countless ways to add matching bold pops of colour. For Chris and Joyce we opted for some of my Autumnal favorites including crimson, burgundy and yellow toned cymbidium orchids, protea and seasonal chrysanthemum disc bud blooms.
I love a botanical wedding, whether it be a simple garland hanging from a welcome sign, or a long and low runner, or something more spectacular suspended from beams there are no limits on how foliage can be applied to add a dose of drama to your arrangements. And compared with flowers foliage is much more long lasting!
Using a neutral base of blush and ivory toned blooms is highly recommended for foliage lovers as this helps the various shades, textures and lengths of foliage to take stage
Petite jars of flowers and foliage lined the banquet style guest tables which was held at the intimate settings of Ripples in Chowder Bay
Choosing the right theme for your wedding can sound daunting for some, if that sounds like you I would recommend starting out with a choice in outfits before settling on your flower selections. For Eline and Jason a timeless look of elegant pastel tones was a great choice.
Using very minimal foliage the flowers became the focus.
Eline wore a simplistic outfit, allowing smaller details to take stage. Such as her ring and treasured keepsakes which were interwoven into her bouquet
Eline’s sister carried darker shades of pale pink and ivory tones. The peonies (featured in the centre) are readily available in the summer months
Their ceremony featured an archway adorned with orchids and cascading foliage with matching silver lanterns for both outdoors and in
Featured above (left to right): Silver lantern and wreath table settings (lanterns also available in rose gold), a stunning example of a cascade of fresh blooms arranged with love by Audrey at Brown Sugar Cakes, the Springfield House Gazebo featuring a suspended arrangement of eucalyptus and orchids. Congratulations Eline and Jason!
Blush toned blooms combined with a variety of textured foliage came together to create a very romantic theme with a rustic twist for Adrian and Roxette’s sophisticated Winter wedding
The dusty pink theme was carried through with the use of “Cool Water” A popular mid pinkish lilac rose bloom. With the bridesmaids blush dresses to match with soft and romantic pink themed bouquets.
Their ceremony took place at the beautiful sandstone church Mother of Mary in Hunters Hill. Nature was brought indoors with pews decorated with cascades of foliage for an unconventional look
The reception was held at Oatlands House with the cascading effect carrying through from the ceremony to the bridal table which was heavily decorated with soft blooms and a heavy scattering of berry filled foliage
The simple use of floating candles in cylinder vases sitting on wreaths of foliage decorated the guest tables creating an ambient and intimate feel
Their simple cake featured a simple touch of cascading rose blooms
And is there anything more romantic than the addition of lanterns to guide their guests to the reception room. I just love this idea!
The bold use of large unconventional blooms were the perfect fit for Andrew and Eva’s modern wedding which was held in the Royal Botanic Gardens and the intimate surrounds of the Museum of Contemporary Art
Instead of a traditional bouquet, Eva and her maids carried a medley of modern blooms including leucodendrons, billy buttons, sea holly and vintage varieties
The incorporation of geometric shapes and patterns was a great way to showcase Andrew and Eva’s uniquely simple yet modern theme. Geometric terrariums combined with gold painted artichokes and berries were used everywhere. A contrast to the usual floral decor leaving an unexpected and memorable feel for the guests
The addition of fairy lights on the guest tables also helped create an unexpected romance and made the reception room feel instantly chic
Their simple cake became instantly transformed with a simple touch of geometry
Inspired by nature and predominantly earthy tones with a few pops of colour, we caught the tail end of the best winter had to offer together with bold leaves and branches to create large scale displays both indoors and out
A bohemian bouquet often includes a magnitude of foliage and blooms and is often oversized and unstructured, so definitely not for the fainthearted!
Krystal and Chris’s wedding was definitely a highlight for 2018. Using a variety of antique rose shades, stocks and peony blooms together with a combination of textured foliage and sea holly. An arbor arrangement decorated the garden ceremony and the guest reception tables featured low vases of seasonal spring blooms to match their vintage theme. Thank you Krystal and Chris for sharing these wonderful photos from you wedding album with me!
So excited to receive these gorgeous photos from Buruc and Elias’ wedding day to share with you all!
Dressed in all white outfits, Buruc’s bridesmaids carried a bold look of dark moody and rich burgundy tones. Whilst Buruc in the ultimate fairy tale gown carried a combination of dark tones with wide petaled phalenopsis orchids on arching stems. A great look for modern brides wanting to add some depth and drama into their floral styling
Their intimate celebrations which included a lama or two! were held at the beautiful and private gardens at Springfield House in Dural. The reception tables were filled with bold tones, tropical blooms and modern foliage vases to create a beautifully vibrant space. I simply loved this fresh colour scheme of crisp whites offset with rich berry tones and plenty of lush foliage.
Jane and Peter had to be one of the most unconventional couples I have ever met, their vision was all about having fun.
The reception room was adorned with an unusual mix of eggplants, grapes, artichokes and plums fused with autumn blooms and berries. Polished copper place mats, tea lights and a cheese display featured at the center of the reception room
Lanterns lined their ceremony set up with hanging autumn blooms in the beautiful courtyard at the elegant Gunners Barracks known for it’s unique view of Sydney Harbor
Arranging flowers for Eliza and Guys wedding at Athol Hall was an absolute delight.
Using an abundance of foliage submersed with loads of seasonal white blooms on the banquet style tables and suspended arrangements from the beams transformed the venue instantly.
Here are some of my most favorite pics from their wedding
