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.
Madi and Jason’s Summer wedding was all about elegance and restraint, with a bit of boho flair. We loved working with beautiful premium roses to create Madi’s bouquet and adding in magnolia foliage and picture-perfect orchids for the ceremony and reception florals.
While we’re absolute suckers for the classics, there’s something so satisfying about creating a bouquet that is completely unique. For Georgie, our brief was straightforward: dark red and burgundy tones, with touches of green, but the end result is something that has stayed with us ever since.
As a wedding professional herself, Kayla knows weddings, and that makes her a unique client. She’s at once exacting and confident of what she wants, and completely relaxed about making it happen. She was also happy to pitch in, spending afternoons in our studio reflexing roses while making last-minute plans. We loved creating her luxe, boho florals, featuring plenty of imported columbian roses and lush foliages.
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.
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!
Being a wedding florist that only uses fresh, in-season flowers, we’re always very well aware of the calendar, and what’s available at any given time of year. We’ve got our favourite winter and autumn flowers and we love working with them, but truth be told there’s something so special about those few weeks in November and December that make up Peony season. Jessica lucked out with some beautiful pink and white blooms, paired with roses and lisianthus for a pretty pastel wonder.
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!
Elise and Jonathan went for an Art-Deco look for their summer wedding at the stunning Circa 1876. The red, cream and green bouquets included lots of foliage and vine for an unstructured, organic look, while elsewhere we were more restrained, with a focus on roses in cream, red and pink.
We do so many weddings in the Hunter Valley that sometimes we forget the natural wonders we have right on our doorstep in Newcastle. Jodie and Wayne opted for an intimate backyard ceremony before heading to the Merewether Surfhouse for a gorgeous, romantic reception complete with amazing ocean views and the scent of sea air.
