Check out the latest edition of Cosmo Bride magazine. It’s an annual special of best real weddings. Flick to page 29 and you’ll see a bouquet by Blooms by Bethan, designed to match the look of the gorgeous cover couple’s real wedding. The bouquet features peonies, hydrangeas, succulents, lotus pods, roses and dodder vine in soft pinks, whites and greens. It’s displayed in a bucket for a chic vintage-garden look, which can be hired separately.

Teal and white: a really pretty combo, I think. These are the colours I chose when creating this three-tiered chocolate mud cake covered in sugar paste icing. The top tier is embellished with a giant white sugar rose, the second with quilting and mini teal flowers, and the bottom tier with sugar frills cascading from light to dark teal. Voila! I love the result.

Tracey & Jack’s wedding

Wednesday, 07 March 2012

Last weekend I had the pleasure of arranging and making Tracey’s wedding flowers and cake. Tracey contacted me over a year ago and after some rearranging of dates and a first wedding to her husband Jack in China, finally had her Aussie wedding at Orso in Mosman, Sydney. The colour scheme was pink and white and the star of the day was the lily, to go with the coastal venue.
Tracey carried a huge teardrop bouquet of pink lilies with some foliage, lotus pods and dodder vine. The bridesmaids carried large bouquets of white lilies. Pink lilies in fishbowl vases were placed on the reception tables and a chocolate mud and vanilla cake decorated with white and pink lilies was served after dessert. I hope to share some of Tracey’s professional photos soon. For the time being here are a couple of my snaps.
