I love the idea of a good bridesmaid party, in fact some of my favourite times with my favourite people have been over champagne, cake and flowers so today’s flower-filled bridesmaid party is right up my alley!
The second in a series of inspiration shoots that are all about inspiring and spoiling the bridesmaids just as much as the newlyweds, the team were inspired to create a surprise flower crown workshop for the bride’s best friends. Champagne cocktails and a decadent array of beautiful desserts followed, rounding out the afternoon of sweet fun.
At the beautiful Montville Lake Terrace, photographer & cinematographer Just For Love Photography teamed up with planner and stylist Coco & Confetti, florist Flour & Bloom, stationerThe Ink Refinery,with props from Kolo The Wanderlust Effect, silk runner and napkins from Feathers & Stone, silk robes from Ivy & Matilda, and decadent desserts and cakes by One Last Bite andHansel & Gretel Specialty Cakes.
Emma from Coco & Confetti shares the story that set the scene for the shoot. “On a misty Saturday in February, an excited bride-to-be invited her best girlfriends to a stunning location in Sunshine Coast hinterland to be showered with love, desserts & blooms! Her agenda: to ask her bestie’s to be her bridesmaids! The girls arrived and were surprised by a flower crown workshop with an overflowing “bloom bar” (using lisianthus, carnations, hydrangeas, roses, lavender, baby’s breathe & eucalypt).”
Carefully wrapped, with accompanying gold stationery, each “bridesmaid to be” would be greeted with a silk floral robe from Ivy & Matilda with a card inviting them to be a bridesmaid.
Guests were surprised with the beautiful “Bloom Bar” created by Flour & Bloom.
A drinks cart packed with champagne, raspberry liqueur and rose petal filled icecubes set the scene for cocktails.
A party is not a party without dessert so One Last Bite and Hansel & Gretel Specialty Cakes created an amazing dessert table of macarons, mini cupcakes, sugar stars, lamington cake, naked butter cake, grapes, berries & figs, Eton Mess, raspberry and lemon mouses, chocolate gems, Turkish delight, nougat and chocolate bark.
Kylie of Just For Love Photography also crafted up this sweet video of the celebration.
