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.
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!
Sometimes crisp and elegant blue and white does just the trick.
Hannah and Andy’s beautiful wedding was at Toparies Restauarant in Samford. Any wedding in Samford Valley is ok by me. They kept things simple with navy and white and It really payed off. Thought I’d show a little sneak peak of their bouquets before I get some professional images.
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!
This little mate gave me a big fright while setting up a wedding at the Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha last weekend! He ran out from under a table and proceeded to climb all over my tools and eat things he found in the moss and foliages.
Luckily my husband was there and came over when I let out a strange squeak, to assure me the lizzard was not going to eat me.
Don’t worry, before long we were great friends.
