A beautiful,rustic and elegant autumn wedding set in the romantic Yarra Valley region of Victoria.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Emma and James to create their dream floral arrangements for their wedding in the beautiful Yarra Valley region,The Farm.
Emma is from New Zealand and James from Scotland which is where they met and fell in love.
Emma wanted the flowers to be simple and elegant with lots of texture and to represent both their home countries so we chose a white and green colour scheme and I used beautiful ferns to represent New Zealand and blue thistle as it’s Scotland’s national emblem.
Emma also wanted white carnations as they remind her of her grandmother when she used to grow them in her garden.
For Emma’s bouquet,I used a combination of greenery including beautiful dusty miller,minimal white flowers to keep it simple but very textural,long draping ribbons finished off the bouquet.
For the ceremony,I designed and hand made rustic twisted willow hoops with a combination of ferns and floral’s to add a unique touch and create a talking point for their guests.
These made an elegant backdrop for the ceremony with tall vases of lush greenery and roses on either side of the barn which were then reused at the reception.
The buttonhole’s were kept simple and rustic finished off with twine.
For the reception area the twisted willow hoops adorned the beams and added a whimsical feel while the tables had a group of mason jars,filled with greenery and white floral’s which were really versatile as they could be used on the bar and gift table as well as the guest tables.
This was a truly beautiful,romantic wedding with unique and elegant floral designs to complement the day!
Weddings flowers are not just for one day,they represent who you are,evoke emotions and create lasting memories.
