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.
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.
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!
This past weekend I not only got to attend one of my dear friends weddings at Glengariff, but had the pleasure of doing her wedding flowers as well. James and Courtenay are two of the most bright and bubbly people you’ll meet, and their wedding suited them down to a t! Between the hot pink dresses, bright turquoise nail polish, cute bow-ties and hilarious photobooth they had the making of a very fun and colourful day.
Congratulations James and Courtie!! xo
I know its blurry but its so cute!
We even got to sing at the ceremony..
Cant wait til I can show you the photos by Elleni Toumpas. She is incredible! In fact, check out their engagement shoot, its DE-lightful!
