Pretty mauve wedding at Balgownie Estate!



This was such a gorgeous wedding at Balgownie Estate, on a very warm, bright autumn day. 
Balgownie is always stylish and elegant - it's such a pleasure to be located so close to all the stunning venues in the Yarra Valley! 


For this particular wedding, we used shangri-la roses, Sweet Juliet roses, lisianthus, lavender and dusty miller. 

It's obvious enough but I am really feeling the importance of being a good customer. I mean I always am (hehe) but if you are royal and polite, you become an important customer, the suppliers will go out of their way to get something for you. In this case, we had a hiccup with getting the exact mauve roses we wanted to use, so I went to the Magic Rose Gardens (in Healesville) and they supplied over 300 stems of Shangri-la roses on the same day. How great is that! Magic Rose Gardens is my very favourite supplier for their superior quality roses and fantastic service, and they will always be my favourite!  
It's so important to choose any vendors that will go out of their way, and also gets their supply from a supplier that will go out of their way too. It's a whole team work - not within one business, but from one bussiness to the other, and to the client. 


Anyway, enough of my stories - this wedding was so pretty and romantic :) We used amazing 7 buckets of rose heads which is about 300 heads of roses to use as petals for the isle. It was very full and beautiful! 


For table flowers, we used the same flowers as the bouquets. :) 




Congratulations to M&G!!

Bright and cute wedding flowers for a wedding at Melba Estate!

Have you been wondering what that mysterious hedge on the corner of Maroondah hwy and Melba Hwy is....? Well, that's Melba Estate and they are opening to public very soon!! 
It is a STUNNING venue with a huge beautifully maintained garden, and a rich history to fascinate you. There is an awe-inspiring oak tree (could be the oldest in Australia!) which you could get married under, and several different sections in the garden that will be perfect for photo shoots!  
You must check them out :)

I am fortunate enough to be the closest florist to the Melba Estate and was very lucky to help a couple getting married at Melba Estate with their flowers! 
It was very pretty, bright and textural mix of flowers. 
Congratulations to J&L!!

Some booked out dates for this year

This year is really coming along rather quickly - I can't believe it's already April!!
It explains a lot about many inquiries I am getting for weddings later in the year.

Pastel bouquet

Some of the October and November days are already booked out (!) which is kind of flattering. After 5 years in this business, each and every weddings are still very fresh & special to me, and I don't think this will ever change.

Magical wedding at Zonzo!

Since I had a meeting with the gorgeous bride Lara back in winter last year, I had been excited about this wedding the whole time. It was well worth the wait! The wedding was just magical, filled with lights and candles and abundant flowers and greenery throughout the whole wedding. 

For bridal party flowers, we used seasonal pastel flowers, including David Austin roses, hyacinth, freesias, tuberose, dusty miller and lisianthus. Imagine the fragrance of these flowers..! Heaven!

Corsage

For ceremony, we custom made a burlap curtain for the barn with fairylights shining through the burlap. (Hard to see the lights from this photo, but it looked absolutely magical!) Babies breath decorated on both sides also looked very sweet and the whole setting just worked for the venue.


For each rows of chairs, we had small logs with jars of flowers and candles. 
Logs and burlap curtains can be hired from us. :) 



Now for the reception, we decorated the rafters with ivy, jasmine, fairy lights and garlands of glittery love hearts. How magical does this look!! 


Tables were decorated with large clusters of jars with pastel flowers and tealight candles. 
Which we used for the breakfast cerebration the next morning at Balgownie. 
Ta-da! 


The photos doesn't do justice for how beautiful everything looked but I hope they portrayed a little bit of magic anyway.

Congratulations to L&A!! It was such a pleasure to work on your flowers!!
