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?!
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.
Well it sure has been an embarrassingly long time since I’ve posted some wedding flowers on here.. or anything at all actually.
Today is the day that changes. And I get my act together. Laziness be gone!
Ok, where do we start? With a super lovely couple and some seriously beautiful flowers to match. Even if I do say so myself.
This wedding is an absolute favourite, probably because of the colours. Don’t get me wrong, I love pinks and apricots and white in wedding florals, but its always so lovely to do something with a little more HELLO! Plus purple was my favourite colour most of my childhood so I have a little soft spot for it.
Melanie and Miguel are a lovely couple and Mel just so happens to be my husbands cousin. So again with the soft spot. Ok enough talking, now for some images. I dont have many to show you but you’ll agree by the end that Alcorn Images are just incredible. They photographed the flowers and everything for that matter so beautifully and effortlessly.
*sigh* so pretty.
