The stunning leaves of the magnolia make for a bold statement with hydrangea and lotus pods to soften.

Maroochydore wedding

Wired cymbidiums are a treat in any arrangement, but I do love them in bouquets the most.  They add such a touch of elegance and their retro appearance, when paired with sweet pea and akito roses, makes for an eyecatching piece.  The bride wore white, the maids green.  Maroon ranunculus in the maids bouquets complimented the throat of the cymbidiums and added a striking contrast to an otherwise neutral palette.

Lily of the Valley (or L.O.V.) was a treat to find in the markets that Friday morning, so of course was added to the mother's corsages.  The sweet scent was delightful and was worth the trouble taken to get them to QLD without them drying out!!  Thankyou to QANTAS baggage handlers for reading the hundreds of 'fragile' stickers plastered to the boxes!

First day of time to get married!

It was the first day of spring, and two head over heels in love people decided to share their special union with a handful of friends in Sydney before the bride's first ever figure competition!  Sonia was a vision in soft pink chiffon with a floral detail ruffle on her one shoulder greek inspired gown.  What better fashion choice than one that truly shows off the hard work put in over the last three months?!  The flowers were the perfect compliment to the subtle shade of pink Sonia chose.  Miniature peach roses, antique tea roses, blushing bride, white ranunculus, white freesias (including grandmas freesias from an obliging field), fresh Jasmine (from an overgrown fence...) and flowering vibernum were the perfect flowers to create the gypsy style posy bouquet which was wrapped with peach, yellow and cream striped grosgrain ribbon and pearl pins to boot.

It was the most romantic ceremony I think I've ever been privileged to witness, and although the bride was beset with a fit of giggles, the mood never wavered.  Fun, romantic and colourful.
