Native Wedding bouquets Sydney

It was a huge honour to work with Michelle & Scott for their Wedding day,
we absolutely loved putting together the flowers and decorations for them with their
aspirations of incorporating native wildflowers such as Protea, Kangaroo paw and
Paper daisies into the bouquets and table centrepieces...

A HUGE Thanks to the lovely Luisa from Serendipity corner Photography
for sending through these gorgeous images she captured of the day!!

Normally when you think of Natives - automatically you think harsh brown tones
with bright red Banksia & Leucodendron, well instead we thought we would take
a more pastel approach using softer shades of pale pink & neutral Ivory..
which would compliment with Michelles' Bridesmaids dresses which were
a Royal shade of blue..

A Big Congratulations to Scott & Michelle xx

Pretty rose bouquets

For Nicole & Albert's Wedding, Nicole opted for tight white Atiko roses
and for her Bridesmaids we mixed pacific blue roses with cool water (purple) roses
with the whites as her Bridesmaids were wearing Purple dresses..
I also loved the little Basket we created for her little flower girl which included a few
of the purple Singapore orchids..

purple rose bouquets

Nicole's Wedding was to be held at the Blue mountains ans she had concerns
that the flowers will not last and may fade due to the hot Summer weather
and also the long driving distances..

So we suggested we construct the bouquets for her in a Bridie (which is based in the wet foam)
so that the flowers will have water to drink throughout the day..
The Posy basket was also constructed the same way to hold the distance.

- so the Boys should not have to miss out on all the fun we also made them all
matching boutonnieres - here is a pic of a few:

pretty purple buttonholes

As most Churches and outdoor Ceremony locations these days don't permit you to throw
rose petals- A Flower girl rose petal basket is not always the best choice-
instead we created a little posy arrangement in the Flower girl basket with roses and a few orchids..

Flower girl basket

Congratulations Nicole & Alberto!!
