Laura and Jonny's 99 Mary Street and Trafalgar Warehouse Wedding - Fabulous florals in an urban setting

Hi all,

I do love it when the photographer manages to snap our very own T delivering flowers to the bride.  As you can see from her face she is always just as excited as our brides are.

Laura and Jonny tied the knot in December in the gorgeous setting of 99 Mary Street followed by a reception at Trafalgar Warehouse.  Although the couple were set on an urban feel they wanted to use florals to slightly soften the surroundings.

For the brides bouquet Laura wanted and ethereal, wintery design - super simple, super elegant, understated bouquet to remember.  T created a stunning shape which softly trailed beautifully against the brides dress.

The bridesmaids had a hand tied posy packed full of green foliage and just a touch of white asparagus fern which adds a great texture to them.  Buttonholes were a sprig design using eucalyptus from the couples' garden, white thistle and you guessed it, that all important white asparagus fern.

Venue designs featured something quite close to mine and T's heart, gin bottles! Although I do have mixed feelings about this as clearly, there is nothing sadder than an empty gin bottle, but then again it was filled with gorgeous foliage and flowers so not all bad.  T and Grace also got to make a botanical back drop at Trafalgar Warehouse for guests to take pics in front of (I believe the kids call them #selfies) and for the speeches to take place.  Foliage was running down the middle of the long wooden tables with tealights placed in between adding that softness that I mentioned earlier.

We got to work with our buddies at Inner City Weddings again which is always a pleasure and big thanks to S6 Photography for sending us the fabulous piccies.  Scroll down and enjoy.

Felicity and Steven's Carlton Towers Wedding - winter flowers and grand surroundings

Hi all,

Today we are brining you this rather grand wedding from November 2017.  Felicity and Steven got married at Carlton Towers which is a wonderful venue full of original features and fantastic backdrops.  The bride and groom wanted a whimsical romantic feel to the day with flowers accenting the venue.  The colour pallet was burgundy, pale pink and ivory.

For the bouquet Felicity wanted a wild asymmetric design with a mixture of smaller and larger blooms to create texture.  T used a selection of flowers and foliage including eucalyptus, seed pods, berries, amaranthus, amaryllis, roses, echinops and anemone.

The bridesmaids had a smaller, posy style with similar flowers and foliage as the brides bouquet.  Buttonholes were kept rustic with a sprig design, plenty of foliage and a sprinkling of berries.

The venue flowers were simply gorgeous from the isle runner to the long and low for the ceremony table T really did pull out all the stops to really work with this incredible venue.  The table flowers sat beautifully in our set of gold footed bowls adding to the grandness of the surroundings. Although we didn't manage to get a professional shot of the incredible waterfall of flowers, T and Grace did take a few snaps on their phones which we just couldn't resist letting you see too!

Laura and Richard's Iscoyd Park Wedding - texture, foliage and the biggest wreath you have ever seen.

Hi all,

Ok so we have done Christmas weddings, bonfire night weddings and Valentine's Day weddings, to name a few but this was our first ever New Years Eve wedding and we went all out on our floral designs for this one making sure that our bride and groom saw in the New Year with floral style!  In the rather grand setting of Iscoyd Park it was definitely one to remember.  The couple wanted a very natural feel to the florals with lots of textures and shapes with a burgundy, wine, red and cream colour pallete.

For the brides bouquet Laura wanted a soft flowing asymmetric design using lots of foliage and seasonal blooms.  T kept it wild but not too messy with materials such asparagus fern, ivy, berries and two tone waxflower.  Red was used as a accent colour so as not so take anything away from the gorgeous red dress Laura was wearing.

The bridesmaids had smaller, more compact bouquets with flowers and foliage similar to the bride.  Buttonholes were kept to a sprig style design with plenty of texture.

The venue flowers were definitely the icing on the wedding cake.  As you will see from the pictures below the pedestal situated at the end of the isle in the centre of the ceremony room was really something to behold.  With breathtaking flowers and stunning shape and design, not too big or too small, T got this spot on - which brings me to the importance of site visits and also having a florist with the skill to provide something just right for the space.  Not wanting to do things by halves T also designed a 2 meter wreath to go behind the top table at the wedding breakfast which provided the perfect back drop for some incredible photographs and of course the all important grooms speech.
