Donna and Brett were married at sparkly Shelly Beach, Manly, in September last year. Being an outdoors-y pair who love to bushwalk, they wanted to include Australian natives, especially flannel flower, in their bridal party flowers.

The bouquets included said flannel (I love those soft little guys), white waratah, eriostemon, silver tetragona nuts, cute mini gum foliage and kangaroo paw, as well as non-Aussie ranuncs, sweet pea, white anemone, hypericum berry and blushing bride.

The little pops of red flowers and red nails worked really well against the bridesmaids’ blue dresses.

The groomsmen each had a different buttonhole with a mixture of bits and pieces from the bouquets. Love making things not so matchy-matchy. It looks good.

took all the lovely shots above.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record but… I loved doing these flowers.

Congratulations to Donna and Brett. xxx

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

*LAZY POST ALERT*

I’ve got plenty of flower photos from my trip to America but the thought of culling them and editing them makes my brain hurt. And I’m waiting on the profesh photos from my last few weddings (can’t wait to see them), so these are going to have to do, for now.

I love Instie. It’s so easy, which just makes everything else seem so hard. That’s how they get ya!

If you want to see more regular photos (including some of my kiddo… sorrrryyyy) follow me: @petalandsprout_sydney .

P.S. ROSES ARE BACK. Yes. Life can resume as normal.

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.
