Lauren and Nathan’s organic, wild florals were the perfect finishing touch for their wedding. We say it a lot, but Circa 1876 would have to be one of our favourite venues in all of the Hunter. That light! That fireplace! And that beam – perfect for a lush floral installation that will have your guests gasping in delight!
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!
Emma and Luke’s florals combined luxe fresh florals with everlasting, dried textures for something truly unique, perfect for a day that was at once laid-back and ultra-romantic. And the smiles on these faces – we can’t get enough!
Rachel and Tom wanted a rustic, barn wedding that was laid-back, but not too casual. Their choice of venue – the gorgeous Tocal Homestead – had everything they were looking for, so all we had to do was add the finishing touches. Lush natives with pops of colour and lots of texture suited their theming perfectly.
There’s something about those perfect pink king proteas – it doesn’t matter how many times we see them, we don’t seem to get sick of them. Yasmin and Luke combined them with soft, pastel-toned natives and lush ruffly peonies for a look that was at once classic and modern, much like this gorgeous couple themselves!
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!
The Woodhouse in Wollombi is rapidly becoming one of our favourite venues in the Hunter Valley – and Hayley and Stan’s wedding is just one of the reasons why! We loved creating Hayley’s bouquet of proteas and gum, perfectly contrasted with Stan’s lisianthus buttonholes.
Heather and Matthew’s wedding florals combined lush bold natives with more traditional flowers like roses and even touches of baby’s breath. We loved the fine, intricate textures in Heather’s bouquet, created by incorporating thryptomene and acacia, balanced by the boldness of pink ice proteas and soft, velvety flannel flower. What a treat!

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.
Sometimes simple is best – a few types of flowers in a simple arrangement. Sometimes… you just have to go a little wild. Megan’s bouquet features a whole wildflower garden full of blooms, including *deep breath* king proteas, blushing brides, ranunculus, chrysanthemums, David Austin roses, kangaroo paw, geralton wax, thryp, gum nuts and foliage, dollar gum, olive foliage and hanging amaranthus. Stunning.
