We are so excited that this wedding is now up on the Hello May blog!
What more could two lovers want when you have a gorgeous venue, a celebrant and all your loved ones in the one place at the one time? Flowers, of course!
Annabelle and Sam said 'I do' in a spectacular setting known as 'The Grove' in the Byron Bay hinterland, just up the road from our florist at Newrybar Merchants. The Grove doesn't need much to help it shine - it's a stunning property with row after row of macadamia trees and large, green, rolling hills surrounding it. What a gorgeous backdrop upon which to get married!
Annabelle's brief included not only a wedding party of eight people, but a huge arbour, petals for throwing, table settings, two incredibly large botanical rings suspended from the roof of the sperry tent and an all green leaves & mossed-up the totem pole on the dance floor. Annabelle and Sam's guests were treated to nothing short of wondrous spectacle! We send a special thank you to Byron Bay photographer Carly Tia for allowing us to use these photos, you captured this wedding beautifully!
The rustic, yet green setting of The Grove was beautifully off-set by the white, green and rust tones of the botanicals used in Annabelle's and her gorgeous bridesmaids' bouquets.
Our talented florists carefully wove together a combination of florals including white ping pong chrysanthemums, gumnuts, berzellia berries, star of bethlehem flowers (at varying stages of opening), muted grey native gum and bronze and rainforest green magnolia - all set against a base of deep green mini monstera leaves. The result? A well thought-out and put together bouquet with just enough sporadic sprigs of gum to give it an unaffected, not-so-put-together garden fresh feel.
The arbour was a humungous, strong, wooden structure which needed some botanicals to help soften it into the setting... In keeping with the bouquets, we toiled away up high ladders using magnolia leaves, chrysanthemums, gum and min monstera leaves to weave our magic. Who wouldn't want an arbour of this magnitude, and dressed as it was, under which to get married? Yes, please!
The Botanical Rings
How can we describe this botanical wonderland? Giant, white king proteas, deep green and copper-brown magnolia leaves, crisp, white chrysanthemum, sprigs of native gum, clustars of ferns, waterfalls of tropical orchids and huge agave succulents. All suspended on a ring that was able to sit at just the right height, being on an adjustable rope system we were able to get it just the right distance from the roof. With the lovely North Coast Events guys (oh that's my husband btw!) on the job, romantic soft light bulbs were strung and pin spots on the florals made all the difference. Annabelle and Sam had two of these botanical rings as the feature of their reception. Aren't they incredible?
We were delighted to hear that Annabelle and Sam's wedding day was everything they wanted and more, (see our testimonials page)... We were truly blown away by Belle and her families loveliness, it was an absolute pleasure working on making the botanical styling perfect to suit this beautiful day.
