After: Louise's wedding

It was an early start on Saturday morning for Louise's wedding. She was having a lunch time wedding at the most gorgeous wedding venue - Bells at Killcare.

I met Louise at her hairdresser to give her some flowers for her hair, and drop off her bouquet (there were no bridesmaids so only one bouquet to drop off). Then I made my way to Bells to set up the wedding venue. I hope you are ready for a photo overload because I have a few to show you....

Bride bouquet: Louise specified that she wanted her posy to be more of a ball shape - so there was no frame of foliage around it. The colours aren't right in the first photo as the reflection from having the lights on in the studio threw a yellow tinge on the bouquet. The flowers were ivory david austin roses, white lisianthus, white freesias and white singapore orchids
And I had to show you how we finished off the stems with white ribbon and a thin black ribbon criss-cross pattern:

These are the hair flowers, white singapore orchids:

Buttonholes: the groom had 2 ivory david austin roses, whilst the best man had 1 ivory david austin rose

Ceremony: the ceremony was supposed to be held outside in the beautiful grounds at Bells. Unfortunately the weather wouldn't cooperate and it looked like the ceremony was going to be moved inside. This is where they usually hold the wedding ceremonies:

Petal Cones: we made some petal cones for the ceremony. These were supposed to sit on each of the chairs along the aisle so that the guests could throw petals over the newly married couple as they walk up the aisle together

Reception: Louise wanted to keep the reception flowers very simple, just a couple of vases of white flowers on each table.

Bridal Table: a low vase in the centre of white dahlias surrounded by little tealights of white lisianthus flowers

Guest Tables: there were four long guest tables. On each of these we put two low vases of white dahlias

The view of the reception room with the round bridal table in the centre, and two of the long guest tables on either side:

Cake: the cake topper included white dahlias, ivory david austin roses, white freesias and white singapore orchids. And we added a spray on the bottom using the same flowers

Congratulations Louise! I hope you had an amazing wedding day. The venue was absolutely stunning and I am sure everyone had a great day there.


  1. Hey Dannii!

    My sister alerted me to your blog....thought I would make a post to let you know how happy I was with your work. The bouquet was exactly how i imagined!...simple and beautiful. As were all the arrangments of the day. You clearly love what you do!

    I would highly recommend you to any bride....especially those that have a hard time articulating what they want (due to lack of flower knowledge.. ha ha).

    all the best

    Lou :-)

    ps. mum's cake looked lovely! you guys collaborated well!!

  2. OMG those Blue drinking glasses are amazing! Do you know where the bride got them from?

  3. Hi Megan,

    The glasses actually belonged to the restaurant. They are just the standard ones that they use to match the blue decor. Sorry I couldn't help.
