Marina & Mina: Abusefien Coptic Church Rhodes, and Sergeant’s Mess Mosman : Jan 2019

by Beth Abood |

We've done quite a few weddings at Sergeant's Mess this year. It turns out many of Floreat's couples are big fans - as are we! The room fits a big crowd but is small enough to feel intimate, and the views are some of the best in Sydney. I realised each time we've been there we've created something completely different from the last, (see some of our other Sergeants Mess weddings here and here) so it's a pretty versatile space. 

The day began with a bouquet delivery to Marina's home. Beautiful blush David Austin roses and the gorgeous flowering Stephanotis made for a sweet-smelling bouquet.

Next stop: the Church at Rhodes, where we tied little posies onto every second pew, and placed two very lush vase arrangements at the front of the Church. The ingredients: brown and green magnolia foliage, blush pink Clare roses, white hydrangea, local white roses, trailing jasmine and those perfect white Phalaenopsis orchids.  

The most challenging and rewarding part of this wedding was the reception. We had a custom-built structure to create the bridal table backdrop, used alongside 8 hanging steel balls and a flower wall at the entrance (unfortunately not pictured!).

The bridal table was covered from end to end in a mix of pink and white roses, dahlias, hydrangea, Cecille-Brunner roses, jasmine and magnolia foliage. 

And the tables! 20 of them in total, and each one unique. 

What a huge start to 2019 this was! Such a beautiful, sunny day (and from memory very hot), yet the flowers all held up so well thanks to careful planning and we're really pleased with how it turned out. 

Congrats Marina and Mina!
