Before Floreat's current studio in Darlinghurst, we were making flowers out of a small garage on Hastings Parade in North Bondi, just a couple of doors down from the parents of this lovely bride Alana. Being our last wedding of 2019 and a bit of a reflective time, this was such a nice reminder of where we began and how far we've grown as a business, and so humbling that customers we met years ago still want to work with us. Here's a look at what we made.
Alana's bouquet was made of sweet-scented, white David Austin roses.
Simple, white rose buttonholes for the men.
The ceremony took place in the garden at Vaucluse House, just a short walk from the Vaucluse House Tearooms where the reception was later held. We loved turning the emtpy lawn into a beautiful, flower-filled space for Alana & Sam to be married.
Floreat's charcoal urns were filled with flowers to frame the nuptials.
Mini "gardens" lined the aisle.
The Floreat team had a small window to transform the Tearooms into the oasis you see below, starting with foliage (and a few flowers) which was strung from the ceiling beams.
Urn arrangements were moved inside after the ceremony and used as a backdrop for the bridal table.
A single "princess" rose on the plate of every guest, in the exact pink to match the writing on the fans.
Mini gardens linked with foliage formed the table centrepieces.
Congratulations to this absolutely gorgeous couple! We loved ending 2019 on such a high.
