Lisa & Paul

Lisa and Paul stayed true to their roots – Paul a country boy, Lisa a city girl – and held a modern farm wedding at home, or as Lisa says a wedding of “city meets country”. They chose When Elephant Met Zebra  as their photographers to capture every moment of their wedding day.

The newlyweds tell the story of how they came to marry. “Paul walked up to Lisa at the Victory Hotel. Lisa said you are too young so please don’t bother. Paul then insisted on pulling out his ID to prove to Lisa that he was 33. It came out later that Paul had lied but Lisa had not actually read his date of birth to figure that out at the time.”

The bridesmaids each wore black dresses from Myer with white orchid wrist corsages created by Tanya Liddell of Sassaffair Events

Lisa chose a vintage Alexander McQueen gown for her wedding gown.

Lisa and Paul married at home, using wedding planner Sassaffair Events to bring it all together. Lisa tells, “We decided to have the wedding at our home as it allowed us the flexibility not available at other venues. Styling definitely isn’t something that Paul and I specialize in so we hired Tanya from Sassaffair Events to theme our event and plan the wedding. Through consultation with her, we decided on a modern twist of a “rustic country” theme. Tanya used natural fibers throughout both the wedding and reception with the inclusion of straw bales and organic textures such as wood and hessian.”

Lisa walked down the aisle to “Have a Little Faith in Me” – Joe Cocker.

“Paul is a country boy from a small outback community in QLD so we wanted to remain true to his family heritage and have a country style wedding on our Brisbane acreage – seemed a fitting place! On a tight budget Tanya of Sassaffair Events was able to create a perfect atmosphere for us to marry. A floating ribbon backdrop with milk bottles holding flowers was ideal for us to marry in front of. Guests sat on cushions upon hay bales while they witnessed our ceremony and then moved in to a white marquee with long banquet tables styled in a chic meets country style.”  The couple chose Ketrina Coffey to perform their ceremony.

The heat made it a little difficult for the groom’s ring to go on to his finger! It remains one of the funnier moments of the wedding day for Paul and Lisa.

The reception was under a white marquee all styled by Sassaffair Events, where guests dined at long tables while seated on hay bales. Lisa tells “Fruit and flowers were heavily used in the reception’s decoration to create a welcoming country homestead atmosphere. Vintage lanterns and candles were also used in the reception space to create a scene of intimacy and romance.”

One of the newlyweds favourite memories was during the speeches, they tell, “Lisa’s brother who is not an overly emotional person made a speech telling Lisa how much he loved her and how much respect he has for Paul and was glad that they were married.”

Of their first dance, Lisa remembers “Our first dance was to “Beneath Your Beautiful” by Labyrinth. Paul and I do not really dance so it was a gentle sway in each others arms. It was emotional and beautiful. ”

Suzie & Chris

The romantic Summer wedding of Suzie and Chris has me so excited for Summer. Clear Summer days, bright Summer blooms and beautiful love stories in amongst it all. Angela Higgins was there to capture it all!

“Chris and I met on a night out with friends in Subiaco. I was with my girlfriend and Chris was with a bunch of mates celebrating a friend’s birthday. We decided we wanted to leave and go somewhere else however once we were outside that I decided (on a complete whim) that maybe we should stay for 1 more drink. As I was making my way back to the bar, Chris turned around and almost walked straight into me. So we really met by accidentally bumping into each other!”

Suzie and Chris’ wedding kicked off with floral inspired stationery by Mitchell & Dent. The fresh bouquets in shades of pink, coral and purple created by Eufloria carried through the Summer colour palette.

Suzie and Chris chose University of WA, Sunken Garden for their wedding ceremony, the bride noting, “Chris and I ultimately wanted a big party with all of our favourite people in the world there to celebrate. Our ceremony and reception location were fairly easily chosen – we wanted an outdoor wedding and a reception with a view! The sunken gardens at UWA was an obvious choice because it’s not only beautiful but we both went to University there so it has some sentimental meaning also.”

Spring Wedding Bouquets

Bouquet by Fox & Rabbit Photo by Nika Savins

The thing I love most about Spring is that the flowers get brighter and more beautiful. The bouquets really bloom in Spring – the soft pastel hues, the bright shades of warmer weather and the beautiful texture that I love so much in floral arrangements.

I asked my favourite florists for their take on a Spring wedding bouquet. Cascading arrangements, tightly bound posies or just picked from the garden loose circular arrangements – each and every one I have selected for today’s Spring wedding bouquets feature is purely and beautifully Spring today. The bouquet above by Fox & Rabbit sums it up with it’s pretty soft hues of white, peach, yellow and mauve. Ranunculus, peonies and olive branches create the most stunning arrangement.

Think brightly coloured poppies, sweet peas and jasmine, David Austin roses, round and feminine ranunculus, hellebores and sweet smelling Lily Of The Valley. There’s also a hint of peonies – which seem to always be a winner for the special few who can nab them before we dive headfirst into November peony season.

Bouquet One by Little Gem Flower Photo by Jemma Keech. This Spring bouquet is all white but somehow, the combination of Spring blooms makes it a beautiful nod to the season. It combines  white anemones, David Austin roses, Rice Flowers, foliage and Jasmine Vine. Topped off with a lace ribbon it sets the Spring stage.

Bouquet Two by Floretta. Sweetpeas, roses, delicate astilbe and Dusty Miller and  combine for a more traditional Spring bouquet. Shades of blue, pink and white are simply Spring in a bouquet.

Bouquet Three by Ginger Lily Rose Florists. Burgundy amaranth, combined with tightly closed roses trailing with red anemones and the sprigs of greenery are such a bold statement for this Spring bouquet.

Bouquet Four by Ruby Slipper Floral Design. Fresh unstructured bouquets of Queen Anne’s lace and peonies in shades of pink and white work back beautifully with the bridesmaid’s pink gowns and are a feminine take on a Spring bouquet.

Bouquet Five by Floretta. Photo by Joseph Koprek. This bouquet has the illusion of being freshly picked from the garden. Combining orange roses, blue borage, pink and purple daisies and plenty of greenery I love the thought of this traveling down the garden wedding aisle.

Bouquet Six by Blooming Brides. Photo by Kerryn Lee Photography. I love all white and when you pop in textural Spring flowers the bouquet suddenly looks garden fresh and of course the best bit, smells amazing!

Bouquet Seven by Blooming Brides. Hot pink, white and red is a bright and bold combination! Using sprigs of boronia, tulips, pieris and peonies to create a bouquet that is a nod to the warmth and festive feel of the Spring season.

Bouquet Eight by Ginger Lily Rose Florists. I love the textural take on a more traditional green and white bouquet with this bouquet. Using poppies, roses, pieris  and narcissus it looks loose, Spring like and a beautiful bouquet to march with you down that aisle.

Bouquet Nine by Merci Bouquet. Do I spy magnificent hydrangeas? So beautiful combined with pink dahlias, burgundy amaranth, the combination  looks like it was plucked from the garden right before the wedding.

Bouquet Fourteen by Blooming Brides. Photo by Kerryn Lee Photography. The white and green of these bouquets paired with the coffee coloured bridesmaid gowns always looks like a modern Spring take to me. White and green go beautifully together and are a nice way to give a nod to Spring but still keep a neutral colour palette.

Bouquet Fifteen by Blooms & Scents. What is it about pink and white that says Spring? This soft bouquet with peonies, frilly sweet peas and roses creates a simple, Spring look.

Sally and Greg’s Summer Vineyard Wedding

Sally & Greg

There is a feeling of family with Sally and Greg’s wedding. The couple married in a mown field of a vineyard, carefully considering every part of their day to be a true reflection of the journey they’d taken to marriage. Ben Swinnerton was here to capture every beautiful moment.

Sally tells the story of how she and Greg came to be. “Greg and I met six years ago at a rowing regatta. Each of us was holding down opposite ends of a pergola that was threatening to blow away in a storm. It wasn’t too many weeks later that an ad started playing on the ABC. An old lady was describing her reaction upon meeting her husband of 50 years. She summed it up so beautifully: “I thought my heart would explode”. And, it was true for us too: from the moment we met, the future for each of us held the other at its core.”

summer vineyard wedding0003 Sally and Gregs Summer Vineyard Wedding

Sally chose an incredible gown with a bold motif by designer Anaessia. Her bridesmaids wore red lace gowns by Colette by Collette Dinnigan.

The flowergirls, dressed in colours of sorbet had their wrists tied with fluttering colourful ribbons.

Sally and Greg chose Clyde Park Vineyard, Bannockburn for their wedding. Sally noting, “We were conscious not be too constrained by tradition. Each and every aspect of our wedding day meant something special to each of us. From the relatively small guest list, through to the location of our ceremony in a quiet corner of the vineyard – unadorned or encumbered by any kind of structure (or even mown grass). From the plentiful supply of buntings (each one sewn by my mother-in-law) to my car trip to the ceremony from my family home in Geelong (accompanied by my 11 month old niece, sandwiched in her capsule between my two dearest friends).”

Russell Healy performed the ceremony, Sally telling, “In the lead up to our wedding – Greg would casually refer to the ceremony as the ‘boring’ bit. Not so for me – I poured my heart into writing vows; picking songs and choosing readings. After all, I wanted our entire day – set in motion by the ceremony – to reflect an “old” love. One that was not fleeting or even, necessarily, dazzling – but the kind of love that grows each day into something more beautiful, rich and deep than the day before. That was because, by the time our wedding day arrived, Greg and I had lived, loved, laughed, cried, fought, traveled, learned… and – we were pretty sure – would do so again many times over?!”

The personal elements continued. “From my beautiful bouquet, fashioned earlier that day by my eldest sister – to a barrel room FILLED with wild flowers (inspired by a flurry of scissors late the night before). And, to ensure that the utmost was made of the attendance by our precious family and friends, Greg’s journey to the ceremony in a minibus full of the ‘outta towners'; and our departure later that evening with a bus-full of guests keen to carry on the party in our bridal suite.”

Sally remembers, “Of all the many beautiful memories, perhaps my favourite must be the brief period of quiet when, quite unintentionally (having left our bridal party behind), Greg and I were alone in the open field with our photographer. It turned out to be a precious moment of gentle reflection amidst a sea of otherwise happy activity: all that has been – all that is to come… ”

The reception was held in the barrel room of Clyde Park Vineyard. Sally noting “I’ve heard many people say that their wedding day was too short. I can’t say that for ours. In every way, I felt utterly and absolutely indulged by the experience… so much love and such special people there to share it.”
