Kim and Harry’s stunning summer wedding at Freshwater View Reserve will be one to remember! This stunning coastal backdrop was just perfect for this beautiful bright colour filled wedding ceremony.

The bride and bridesmaids carried a handpicked bouquet of garden roses, hypericum berry, succulents, dahlias, billy buttons, berziliia berry, lush foliages and bound in a bright yellow satin ribbon. Stunning shades of yellow, orange, pink and green were used to make these bouquets pop against the bridesmaids gorgeous orange dresses!

The groom and his groomsmen looked very handsome in their suits with matching orange ties and yellow rose and hypericum berry buttonholes.

Beautiful Mason Jars  filled with fresh flowers were attached to the white tiffany chairs lining the aisle created the perfect entrance for the guests and bridal party.

How amazing does this gorgeous archway look with the colourful draping and water behind?!! Fresh floral were used on each side of the canopy which included garden roses, hypericum berry, succulents, billy buttons, dahlias and lush foliages.

We hope you enjoy the stunning images below that capture this absolutely magical day!!

Congratulations to Kim and Harry on your special day and thankyou for choosing Blushing Blooms to be your wedding florist designer– we wish you a lifetime of love and happiness together.

Sarah and Leigh’s beautiful summer wedding at Oatlands House will be surely one to remember, this has been one of my favourite styled weddings from last year. So so elegant!!

Sarah carried a lush hand tied bouquet of white hydrangeas, berzillia berry, succulents and luscious ferns. The striking bridesmaids dresses were complimented with a similar hand tied bouquet to Sarah, with Ivory Satin Ribbon. How amazing do these fresh, simple and luscious bouquets look against the elegant dresses of all the girls?!!

Leigh and his groomsmen were looking very handsome and sported something a little different for their buttonholes – an ivory david austin rose, small succulent and little piece of berzillia berry.

Each guest table enjoyed a short glass squat vase filled with lush hydrangeas, foliages and ferns. While the Bridal Table had large blue and white porcelain vases filled with white and blue hydrangeas with luscious foliage’s and ferns.

It was a very special day in the beautiful Hunter Valley that Nicole & Allan chose to say their “I Do’s” in front of all their family and friends. It seemed fitting as well that this day was not just any day but the day dedicated to Love and St Valentine February 14th 2014.

There was definitely a buzz in the air that this would be an exceptional event not only because of the very obvious love that the couple have for each other but the fact that the bride had completely devoted the styling of the wedding to the natural environment that they were getting married in. Thinking outside the box and being open to suggestions from our team on how to incorporate this into a venue made this wedding preparation a Florist’s dream.

Set amongst the beautiful vineyards in The Barrell Room at Peppers Creek the reception was a true compliment to the outside around them. Using the length of the room to their advantage long rectangular tables were set up and consisted of beautiful green moss featuring as the table runner, cascading over candles, logs and maison jars filled with green and white seasonal blooms down the center of the tables. Each guests’ seat was signified with a sprig of lavender delicately placed in the napkin with their name place. The roof was a twinkling sky of fairy lights and the magnificent deep fireplace was a light with hundreds of candles hanging from the chimney and scattered across the floor. With a wall of wine barrels set behind the Bridal table and plenty on hand they fit magnificently with the earthy vibe the couple were after.

Before any of this was to be explored the guests were treated to a truly memorable ceremony. Seated on a vintage collection of church pews on the hill the bridesmaids entered in soft and elegant floor length dresses carrying hand tied bouquets bound with hessian and filled with Dusty Miller, Tuber Roses, Green Hypericum Berry, Pieris, White Lisianthus, Cream David Austins, Queen Annes Lace, White Freesias, White Snapdragons. Then came Nicole; looking ethereal in her gorgeous gown, she walked down the aisle and caused everyone to stop and take a breath. She carried an exquisite bouquet similar to the birdemaids but with the subtle difference of Peach Hypericum berries. It is these subtle differences which made the most incredible difference. Not one that anyone could put their finger on but one that set Nicole apart from the rest. Reaching the end of the aisle lined with assorted jars hanging from the pew ends by natural twine Nicole and Allan pledged their love to each other.

Approaching the reception the guests were greeted with timber signs leading them every step of the way. Nicole and Allan’s style was literally burnt into every aspect of their reception with the use of laser cutting into timber to execute essential directions for the guests from table numbers to the main door notifying them of the event being held that night. Through the doors candy bar was a sea of sweets tempting guests from the moment they entered. The use of logs to create levels and depth throughout the reception was the key to this being so striking. Whilst the attention to detail was impeccable and well thought out there was a wild, overwhelming feeling that nothing was to match or be too symmetrical but somehow fit perfectly.

This is a trend that is growing more and more with wedding receptions today. What appears to be flowers and jars scattered across a table is actually a very well thought out process by the Florist but creates a warm environment at your reception where the guests don’t feel hesitant to touch and disturb the perfectly laid out table settings.

Congratulations to Nicole and Allan on your magical day and thankyou for choosing Blushing Blooms to be your wedding florist designer– we wish you a lifetime of love and happiness together. A special mention to Cavanagh Photography for sharing the beautiful work with us, all our smaller details were captured just perfectly! 

All the items used as part of this wedding are available for hire from Blushing Blooms as we understand not everyone has hundreds of jars and logs lying around at home. So please whatever your dream is let us help you make it a reality. Call or email Sally our Head Florist & Stylist for a free consultation.
