Kristen, BJ & Jonahs

The view from Jonahs is quite spectacular, so the decorations are kept to a minimum. Bird cages and driftwood, Singapore orchids and dodda vine with lots of candles made for a romantic evening.

Kristen wanted her wedding theme to be driftwood. After a visit to her family holiday home in Iluka, northern NSW, Kristen came home with some amazing pieces of driftwood that sat beautifully on each of the reception tables. White Singapore orchids and dodda vine completed the look.

The bouquets were simply roses and dodda vine with white lisianthus.

Zoe's beachy native bouquets

Zoe was such a beautiful bride to be, her bouquet just had to match her laidback style, not to mention the logistics of a wedding up the coast at Treachery Headland near Forster with the florist(me) in Sydney and a very hot day added to the mix. We had to construct the bouquets and buttonholes by Friday lunch for the Saturday wedding to be transported by car to the venue. For this reason, and also because it suited the beautiful Zoe perfectly, we chose natives with a twist.
Her gorgeous bouquet included proteas, argyle apple eucalyptus, berzillia berries,nandina foliage, leucadendron and agonis flexulosa.

Transporting the flowers was tricky, but with the help of some moist paperbark and foam boxes, the flowers were delivered to the very happy bride who enjoyed an amazing day.

The button holes for the groomsmen and dads were a mixture of eucalyptus, berzillia, leucadendron and paper daisies.
