I am so lucky to work with such lovely clients. Josette is another awesome lady who gave me a pretty loose brief and let me run with it.

She and Peter were married at Cremorne Point in November… and we all know that November weddings = peonies. Right?

Gorgeous Josette and her stunner of a bridesmaid carried simple but full bouquets of peonies, David Austin and mini roses, kalmia and a touch of helleborus. I love using heaps of different elements in bouquets, but sometimes it’s nice to just scale it back and focus on one or two gorgeous, great-quality elements.

The photos were taken on the day by Cameron Bloom. I’m always so excited to see the professional pics of weddings I’ve worked on, and was over the moon when Cam sent me these pics. Guys like Cam make me look good.

It looks like it was a super happy day.

Biggest hugs to you, Jo and Pete x

Clair & Willis were married in November at the stunning Gunners’ Barracks in Mosman, and were an absolute dream to work with. Clair sent me a few pics of bouquets that she liked, gave me a loose colour scheme to work within and really just let me do my thing.

So I was like, cool, I’ll just get a stack of coral peonies, billy buttons, stock, rhodo, garden and David Austin roses, hypericum berries and that cute little purple thing (I can’t remember its name… dammit) and jam em all together. And I did and voila! – 5 perfectly-imperfect, super-fun bouquets for wedding good times! I love the bright colours against the bridesmaids’ silver dresses, don’t you?

These photos are by Newcastle-based Something Blue Photography – their work is gorge.

Congratulations Clair & Willis xx

Alex and Chris wed on a perfect December day and celebrated at Dunes Restaurant and Kiosk, a beautiful seaside venue on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Alex and her bridesmaids carried posies of peonies, David Austin roses and bouvardia, and the tables were adorned with clusters of jars and bottles containing all kinds of seasonal beauties – magenta roses, white gardenia, bouvardia, David Austins and dahlias, green mulberries, Queen Anne’s lace and that glorious mauve-y hydrangea. Gaaaaaah.

And it has to be said – that dress. Simple, lace perfection.

This wedding was very close to my heart – Kat is my bestie!

As well as putting together all the florals for this secret-garden-themed extravaganza, I had the absolute honour of standing next to Kat and Matt as a bridesmaid as they said their vows – along with her three STUNNING sisters.

How beautiful is Kat? She floors me. Gorgeous girl.

Us girls carried big, wild bouquets of Italian jasmine and peonies, and the bridal table was decorated with an abundance of moss, maidenhair ferns, peonies, roses, trailing asparagus fern, gardenias and tealights. It looked so pretty.

Christina Cleary, who did our makeup, has also popped a couple of pics on her blog – check them out here.

It was a massive day, but definitely a good one.
