Paradiso Reception Lounge at Fairifleld - new fan photos

The Stunning Sehnaz, was kind enough to share her beautiful Wedding Photos with us ..
The Wedding venue based at the Paradiso Reception lounge at Fairfield, NSW.

Photos are not the best but we added a bit of bling - with our chocolate berry beading to the table centrepiece - otherwise quite dull with the fake branches..
and a bit of extra detailing with the perfumed rose petals..

Thanks so much Sehnaz for sharing our Big day with us- it was a pleasure working with you!

There's something about Autumn - Wedding flowers

It's not only Spring that produces great Flowers, not in the least.
There is something about Autumn, somehow words can't describe..
The falling of the leaves, the colours and textures are just so romantic and special.
The rich orange tones, reds, browns and yellows drive me nuts!

 - Calla Lily orange/copper tones 
& hypericum red berry on Magnolia leaf

 Calla Lily teardrop bouquet

- Bouquet includes - 
Orange/copper Calla lilies, 
Chateau late roses, 
Magnolia leaves & 
Hypericum berries 

 I came across this beautiful poem which I feel describes the mood of Autumn perfectly
Written by Wang Wei (Chinese) translated by Edward Chang :

After the rain, the empty mountain at dusk is full of autumn air.
A bright moon shines between the pines;
The clear spring water glides over the rocks.
Bamboo leaves rustling —
the washer-girls bound home.
Water lilies swaying —
a fisher-boat goes down.
Never mind that spring plants are no longer green.
They are saying I am here to stay my noble friends!

Thanks Wang - I hope others fully appreciate your poem..

Cultural Bridal bouquet Inspirations @ Royal Easter show Sydney 2010

This Week we visted the Sydney Easter show - not only for the show bags & rides!

We attended the Flower & Garden hall to view the latest creations of the tafe students work
of Cultural Bridal bouquets.

These students were given a photo of a Cultural costume in which they had to design a Bouquet to match..
We were quite impressed by some of the weird, wacky & ever so WONDERFUL creations that they came up with!!

Well ok it was not all work!  Managed to find some time for some of the rides..

Frangipani Wedding bouquets for Bridal

Frangipanis (better known as Plumeria- Botanical name) are native to Laos (Near Thailand)
Over the past two decades have become increasing popular in Australia & many other tropical countries.

Fresh Frangipanis' are not Ideally the best flowers to use in Bridal bouquets as they do not tend to last out of water for too long. Quickly the edges form a shade of brown and they excrete a milky sap once cut from their plant.

However to achieve a very real look we used fresh Frangipani & gardenia leaves with the premium quality latex Frangipanis'.  We also added a touch of Frangipani oils to them so that they even smell life-like!

Here we have added some pictures of a recent Frangipani Wedding / Bridal Bouquets we put together for
Kylie's Wedding..
