A mutual friend introduced me to Hannah, who was looking for some help with the flowers for her wedding. Together, we formed a concept: a bouquet of mainly native flowers with a hint of seasonal colour. This bright ensemble would be offset by a slightly softer palette for the bridesmaids, and matching buttonholes for Hannah’s groom Paul and his groomsmen.
Sourcing the flowers for a wedding is not always as straightforward as it seems. Hannah was a wonderful bride to work with as she had an idea of what she wanted but was open to suggestion and willing to be surprised by the constantly changing seasons. The main ingredients in her bouquet were king protea, leucadendrons, flannel flower and wattle foliage. I had left our “seasonal element” to the whims of that day’s market, confident that I would find something just right. I was not disappointed when I came across some incredible speckled pink dahlias.
Hannah’s and Paul’s wedding flowers were eclectic and unique to them. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the two newlyweds posed for photos with their nearest and dearest.
You can see photos from the big day in our Weddings + Events section. My favourite photo is the one of Hannah and one of her bridesmaids in their hiking boots!
