This post is completely unrelated to wedding flowers. Instead its a bit of a brag about one of my dearest friends and her new furniture and homewares label; Auburn & Green.
Brieanna has impeccable taste and a fantastic eye for detail which is what makes this brand so great. You can trust that each piece in her collection is not only one of a kind but carefully searched for and hand picked by Brie. She sources beautifully made textiles and works with experienced craftsman to refurbish and restore each unique piece.
Along with that she has cool and quirky homewares to compliment her pieces. The only problem is choosing a favourite. I’m thinking my next purchase may have to be the Tropical Paradise Cushion.
This Brisbane wedding is such a cute one. You can tell from the images by Lost In Wishful Thinking that they just had the best day and you could tell from meeting Danielle that she was so excited to marry Frank.
Danielle came to me with a brief for her bridal bouquet of ‘pretty, garden flowers that would suit the soft pink/purple bridesmaids dresses’. I immediately thought of beautiful lavender lace roses. They were combined with snapdragons, lisianthus, chrysanthemums, hypericum, andromeda and some dusty miller. She trusted me to do something that would suit her wedding and her personality and I was so happy with the result and so excited when I saw the pictures to see they just suited Danielle so well. And even better, she really loved them. Plus you cant go wrong with a Blossom & Twine flower crown, right?
The gorgeous sofa in the pictures is from the lovely Moments in Vintage. Seriously with all of that plus the brides blonde curls you really have yourself a winner. And you’ll even see Danielle changes into her Mum’s wedding dress towards the end. Ahh so lovely!
I recently had a stall at A Darling Affair on the Gold Coast and my lovely friend Deb from Boots Photography went home with a couple of my bridal bouquets. A couple of days later she sent me a few images of the flowers! I should have known if you give flowers to a photographer you end up with some beautiful shots of your bouquets rather than a dodgy iphone pic in your messy work room. Why didn’t I send them all home with her?! I am now kicking myself. BUT! I am very happy to have these few as one of these bouquets was definitely my favourite. Ahhh poppies. How are you so amazing?!
I got a lovely surprise a couple of weekend ago when Brooke Adams asked me to put together a flower crown for a shoot she was doing. Sometimes doing a shoot just for fun produces the best photos and in this case that’s definitely true. Can you believe the model isn’t wearing any makeup?! What a stunner! I love how simple this is. Water, white shirt and flower crown. Amazing.
It’s probably no secret that I love tulips. They change colour slightly as the open, they keep growing after they’ve been cut and they are just all round amazing. There is one particular pink double tulip that I especially swoon over and when I first met with Emma to discuss her wedding florals I knew straight away that her and Miss Pink-Double Tulip were meant to be. Of course I couldn’t let the tulips steal the whole show. I had to add in some other coral and pink goodies but still, amongst the beautiful foliages and textures, there popped the double tulips just waiting for some attention.
We had some very exciting news this past weekend with one of our weddings featuring on Style me Pretty.
The best part was, the Bride and Groom of this particular wedding were my sister and brother in-law! This could not get any sweeter! Warning, some gushing may be coming.
Kate and Nick’s wedding was without a doubt one of the best days of my life. Kate is not just my only my sister but one of my closest friends. The wedding was in Launceston, Tasmania (where they live) at St Johns Cathedral and Quamby Estate and Ohhh my, what an absolutely stunning location for a wedding. The lovely and talented Deb from Boots Photography also traveled down and shot the wedding so I might just let the images speak for themselves. Of course, because its my sister I couldn’t possibly post less than a million photos but let me tell you, I cut it down a lot! Deb followed us around the day before as we rehearsed the ceremony and set up the reception. It was absolutely freezing weather the whole time (you can pick the Queenslanders with about 12 layers on) and I was actually quite sick but seeing my sisters face with that huge grin on it all day made me feel all warm and fuzzy so it didn’t matter.
