Simone & James wanted a small intimate Sydney wedding. It was a real celebration they were after, rather than tradition. A wedding that reflected their vibrant and colourful personalities. They wanted to do away with a lot a of wedding formalities and make it really personal to them and their nearest and dearest.
The wedding took place during winter and we decided on a rich, moody floral colour palette using lots of different textures. This complimented the layered, organic style that Simone had planned for her wedding outfit. Every element of her wedding look was carefully considered, so it was important our wedding styling and floral design reflected that too.
For their wedding ceremony at Camperdown Commons we styled a beautiful organic setting that framed the couple during their ‘I Do’s’. The key feature was a 2 metre hanging flower arrangement that cascaded around the couple. This helped to create the small intimate Sydney wedding the couple wanted and also make a beautiful backdrop for their photos. Guests were invited to stand around this feature as the non-traditional service took place.
The floral palette for the hanging ceremony flowers was chosen to reflect the organic, winter vibe of the wedding. We added our talent at bringing together wild colours to make sure the flowers really reflected the personality of the couple. Simone’s boho wedding bouquet was inspired by the beautiful crystal crown she wore.
We’d only seen photos of the crown, but manage to replicate the style by adding spiky gum leaves to her bouquet. When we finally did see it, it was spot on.
Once the ceremony was over, we re-positioned the hanging flowers to make them a highlight for the couple’s sit down dinner reception. This meant everything created for Simone and James’ intimate wedding was used more than once – something we think is important for any event we design.
