Our very first wedding of 2018 was a big one. Greta & Jamie were married at two of Sydney's most historic venues - the QVB Tea Rooms and St John's College at Sydney Uni. Both venues are so elegant, with epic proportions and a sense of European grandeur, so it was important that the flowers were on par with this.
We used all of the most beautiful garden flowers of the Summer season; gardenia, stephanotis, hydrangea, Cecile Brunner roses, amaranthus, delphinium and roses in pink, cream and coffee tones – a dream combination.
Tall, flower-adorned stands – which are a modern alternative to the more traditional arch – greeted guests at the church entrance, and masses of flowers spilled out of stone urns sitting at the base of the church’s grand staircase. Later at the reception, round arrangements in tall vases and candelabras were used to fill the space between the tables and high ceilings. The result was stunning.
All too often beautiful, fresh flowers end up in the bin or left to wilt after a wedding or event, but not this time. We're so glad that we were able to go back later in the evening and re-hash the arrangements for the guests to take home.
It was such an enchanting wedding that we loved working on and judging by the pics Jamie's groomsmen loved the bouquets as much as we loved creating them.
