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?!
When Bron asked me to do flowers for her wedding she said ‘i just want something colourful and happy!’ Probably two words most people would use to describe the bride herself. As soon as I hung up the phone I knew exactly how her bouquet was going to look. The bridesmaids wore a bright shade of coral and every nook and cranny of the ceremony was filled with trees and plants so something colourful and natural was in order. Coral and pink with lots of lush green and rustic dodda vine.
The day of Bron and Dave’s wedding was wet, windy and actually quite miserable but the look on their faces the entire day told a completely different story. There really isn’t much that needs to be said as James Day Weddings captured is so skillfully. And the images of the bridal party out in the rain are just beautiful.
They chose Topiaries in Samford Valley for their reception which was perfect for their relaxed, rustic, country style wedding. Beautiful!
I love using rustic, native flowers with soft and delicate blooms. Whoever’s husband bought this home is one lucky lady!
Today I’m happy to show you some images from a reception last year at Botanical Cafe at Mt Coot-tha.
When Mellita came to me and suggested moss on her wedding tables my heart did a little jump. It was messy and damp and so much fun! We dragged bag after bag of moss into the cafe and poked all sorts of goodies into it. Books and old nic-nacs that she had collected sat amongst the greenery. I wish I could have been there to see the guest’s faces as they found their table and discovered each treasure hidden in the foliage!
The staff at Botanical Cafe were so helpful and let me put dirt and foliage all over the place!
The photos are fabulous because they were taken by Brisbane wedding photographer Deb Boots from Boots Photography. Just love when a bride tells me Deb will be photographing my wedding flowers!
