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.
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.

Hannah and Ben’s quirky inner-Newcastle wedding is one of our favourites. While we love taking traditional wedding flowers and adding our own twist, sometimes it’s so much fun just to throw out the rule-book and go all-out. Hannah’s bouquet is colourful, playful and unique, and we’ve got a long-held soft spot for Ben’s buttonhole of billy buttons and sweet william. Amazing.
Happiness is marrying your absolute favourite person on a gorgous sunny day, surrounded by your besties… finished off with bright, beautiful natives in unstructured bouquets and wild, lush installations at both the church and the reception. We loved creating the rustic, off-beat florals for this one – and we love these photos even more. Happiness is this.
