It’s incredible how the addition of flowers can transform an empty space into a wedding ceremony fit for royalty.
If only we had the before pictures to show how this completely empty Scout Hall (The Gunyah at Watsons Bay) was converted into John and Paul's wedding ceremony, all within just three hours.
The small room didn't stop us from going crazy with the flowers. It began outside the entrance, with a flower-adorned, tall, metal frame to welcome the guests. When they stepped inside, two beautiful stone urns greeted them on either side of the white-carpeted aisle. At the end of the aisle sat the main event; a 5-metre high "open arch". The arch stood the full height of the hall’s huge windows, and created a perfect frame for John & Paul to be married in front of.
The Floreat team repurposed flowers from the big urns and placed them in smaller vases to take to the reception celebrations at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel. Flora-filled glass troughs lay on the guest tables, and the cake was given special treatment with a “cake garden”, standing tall on the floor in front of the cake and looking wonderful for the cake-cutting photos.
As far as green & white flowers go, these were a perfect mix. Lush, green guelder rose, local white roses, David Austin roses, and White Delphinium popped in front of a base of weeping magnolia foliage, magnolia, jasmine and dogwood.
John & Paul, it was our pleasure helping to create the scene for your magical wedding day.
