Shannon and Joe accidentally timed their wedding perfectly to take advantage of our incredibly short Peony season – but wasn’t it the happiest accident of all! Beautiful coral peonies paired perfectly with dark purple-toned foliages for a striking but still achingly romantic look.
We have a lot to say about Tamar and Jordan’s native-themed florals, but this one is all about the details. There’s nothing quite like the combination of flannel flowers and paper daisies – the soft, lazy flannels are the perfect foil for those bright, prickly petals. Add in a couple of pink proteas and native textures, and our job is easy!
While we love the simple reliable beauty of classical wedding flowers, there’s something about natives – they’re colourful, textural and always just a little offbeat. For Ally and Michael we combined Australian natives like bottle brush, grevillia, paper daisy and flannel flower (our personal favourites) with bold South African king proteas to create something that was wild but still beautiful – and perfect for a sunny Hunter Valley day!
While we love the challenge of working with a limited palette of one or two colours, we also love getting the opportunity to go a bit wild with colour. The flowers we used in Deonn and Luke’s wedding made us smile from the second they arrived in our studio, and they still do when we look at these gorgeous photos.
Sue and Song’s mid-summer beach-side wedding should have been all blue skies, but the weather never does play along, does it? Despite the clouds, wind and rain, these two kept a smile on their faces the entire day, and their vibrant, colourful florals did their best to brighten the room!
Full, bold, saturated colour are still somewhat of a rarity in wedding florals, which is why Jess and Mitch’s wedding was such a delight. Jess’s bouquet featured all the colours of the rainbow, all the brighter in contrast to the more traditional baby’s breath bridesmaids bouquets.

We love love love working with Australian Natives. We’re so lucky to have just a gorgeous range to choose from and they’re still underused in wedding flowers. Leanne and Ricky’s bouquets and ceremony flowers were a visual feast featuring golden wattle, stunning yellow paper daisies, sunny billy buttons, complemented with rich green gums, rice flower, flannel flower, eggs and bacon and grevillias. Even the sun couldn’t stay away.
Sunflowers have never really taken off as a wedding flower, but we love them and we love brides who love them. They’re bright, bold, photogenic and they just make us smile. Which pretty much sums up Ellie and Craig and their February 2017 wedding at the gorgeous Wallalong House – although we have to admit to a mini-heart-attack at the bouquet toss!
Pepper’s Creek Chapel and Barrel Room is one of our favourite venues and we always love it when we get an enquiry from a bride getting married in those rustic, romantic surrounds. Sam was no exception. We loved how she embraced colour and the overall boho-luxe feel of her wedding, from the wild, unstructured bouquets to sprawling table-settings with magenta roses and trailing vine and the stunning vine installation we created for that famous Peppers Creek Fireplace. Delish!
