The chic floral concept was represented by a soft pastel palette of breathtaking blooms that featured, David Austin roses and peonies there is always so much loveliness with peaches and creams!
We especially adored creating Ebony’s bridal bouquet, the pretty petals were so delicious and soft, it was the perfect accessory for that gorgeous gown! The bridesmaids in pretty peach dresses held simple designs of white and apricot blooms, all finished with a touch of rustic hessian, lace and twine!
This wedding has it all. A touch of glitter and glamour the perfect amount of purple and lavenders, crystals galore, a gorgeous Bride and a handsome Groom – it’s honestly overflowing with gorgeous.
The Morning-side Garden in Geraldton is a gorgeous outdoor venue with a secluded feel, lovely flower gardens, and Shady trees that act as natural arbors providing shade. Ben and Hayley wedding was a glamorous garden wedding filled with love.
Lace Weddngs were there to capture the couples day with cameras flashing
It was such a fun interplay between elegant and sparkly!
Holly chose a gorgeous mix of fragrant white peonies, pink and mauve grandiflora roses, delicate sweet peas and textural astilbe the bouquet was beautifully adorned with Holly’s grandmother’s blue butterfly brooch pin.
Soft pinks, subtle mauves and textural greys are one of my favourite colour palettes of late. Combine those with lush peonies, velvety dusty miller and sweet vintage lace and you have a gorgeous, romantic feel.
Of course, when you’re as easy on the eye as this bride, I think pretty much anything would look great on you. No doubt her handsome groom, Erin would agree.
Not only are these bridesmaids stunning but they dear to my heart and are some of my closest childhood friends.
The ladies wore long silver chiffon gowns which can do no wrong in my book – such a fresh, modern, playful and feminine combination!
Wow, didn’t Dad look handsome! Stan wore a blackish suit, a crisp Lavender shirt, purple and a bow tie complimented with a rose button hole, but his little girl was was his highlight!. I just love his smile when he laid eyes on Holly for the First time

I loved this incredibly romantic wedding I created at Louise and Brent’s Family farm.
The gorgeous shades of apricot and white in the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets are breathtaking and went so well with the apricot bridesmaids dresses the girls wore. Not to mention the ceremony and reception decor – the mix of rustic and romantic was just perfect.
A corsage is a traditional part of a wedding, as well as other “big days” such as year 10 and 12 formals for those of school age. While a corsage may seem fairly simple, corsage etiquette does exist, and it should be followed.
What is a corsage?
A corsage is a small bouquet of flowers that is worn on a woman’s dress, jacket, or around her wrist. Corsages can also be worn on a woman’s handbag. Wrist corsages are more durable and able to withstand stresses such as dancing and the frequent hugging encountered at weddings.
Corsages can include flowers from the bride’s bouquet. However, it is also proper to allow the corsage wearer to select the flower she wishes to display on her corsage. A corsage flower should also complement the dress of the wearer.
Corsages can be made of any type of flower, but the popular choices are carnations, gerbera daisies, roses, and tulips. (more…)
One of the traditional accessories for the mother of the bride and mother of the groom is a corsage. A corsage is a small cluster of flowers that is worn on a woman’s dress or jacket, and it is a great way to complement an outfit.
Who wears a corsage? (more…)
When many consider wedding flowers, they think only of the bride’s bouquet, but flowers can be employed in numerous ways in a wedding, and can create a delightful, romantic atmosphere when used well. While the bride generally holds the largest bouquet, her bridesmaids and maid of honour can also carry small bouquets of their own. These will generally complement the bride’s but will be smaller and will often use different blooms (which should complement the colour of their dresses).
Flowers are not Just for the Bride (more…)
Corsages are a traditional part of the wedding day. They are seen as a symbol of deep appreciation of the females who are chosen to wear them. They are small flower bouquets that should generally be of neutral colour or one that complements the attire being worn by each individual. Corsages can also be worn in different areas – the left side of a woman’s jacket, dress, on her handbag, around her wrist, in her hair, on a hat, or at the waist.
How to attach a corsage
A corsage is usually attached with a pearl-headed pin, but it can also be attached using a magnet for those who are concerned about ruining their dress, jacket, or handbag. The pin is pushed through from the back, through the corsage, and then back through the garment.
Step-by-step guide to attaching a corsage
Here is an easy guide to pinning a corsage.
• Put one hand behind the corsage and hold the stem with the other, making sure the flowers are facing toward the individual pinning them.
• Place the corsage at an angle on the dress or jacket, preferably about 4 inches from the tip of the shoulder.
• Ensure the corsage is evenly placed.
• Using the corsage pin, pin into the fabric at the bottom left corner of the stem.
• Weave the pin out from under the fabric, pushing it about one inch through and placing it at an angle over the stem’s top.
• Push the tip of the pin into the fabric on the other side of the stem.
• Make sure the stem is secured in place.
• Weave the pin out of the back of the fabric again.
• Repeat the steps with the corsage pin at the top left corner of the stem which is just under the flowers.
When finished, make sure the pin is not sticking out, and also make sure it is not poking the skin. If the corsage is a bit heavy, use two corsage pins to ensure the corsage will stay put during the course of the day. As stated, corsage magnets are also available, and they are much less complicated.
