Carnival of colour

Monday, 29 April 2013

Floral bamboo arch A secret garden ceremony, a daring blue and gold colour scheme, and a reception at Luna Park were the key ingredients for last Saturday’s unique wedding. Christine found me at One Fine Day in February and loved the bridal fair as it offered lots of extraordinary wedding ideas. And she definitely didn’t want a ‘run of the mill’ wedding, so contacted me to help her design a colourful, textural floral concept for her big day.

Blue roses, succulents, coral-like celosia and mini mandarins made their way into the unique bouquets. The highlight for me was the bamboo ceremony arch – a big thanks to my helpers Paul and Naomi who helped me build it! It looked fab in Wendy’s Secret Garden in Lavender Bay.

Blissing in the Southern Highlands

Monday, 22 April 2013

This wedding, which took place two weeks ago, has to be one of my favourites (well, aren’t the all?!). It was for a former publishing colleague set on the grounds of a picturesque country house, Merribee, just outside of Nowra on the NSW south coast. The perfectly sunny day, remote location, chilled bride and bright colour scheme gave the whole day a fun vibe. Here’s a few snaps of my own, although I can’t wait to see the profesh pics from talented photographer Brendan of A Bear a Deer and a Fox. Check out his site. He’s a super-nice guy who takes great pictures, so I’d recommend him if you’re still looking for your wedding photographer.
