f you haven’t noticed, WE LOVE SPRING! It is such an exciting time for flowers, with each new market day comes a new variety of spring bloom for us to gush over.
Getting married in spring is ideal for floral choice, especially if you love feminine pink and purple hues. A wedding we recently styled was just that … pink, pink and more pink *
The ceremony and reception was held at the spectacular Stones of the Yarra Valley. A part of the Yarra Valley’s most historic properties, the venue has a Chapel (ceremony), Dairy (pre party, party area) and Barn (reception area) all linked by European-inspired paths, making it ideal for wedding celebrations. Its décor is rustic and welcoming, surrounded by the picturesque valley and century-old oak trees.
For the Chapel, towering vases of soft pink roses, mint green hellebores and white blossom complimented the pale grey stone and dark hand-crafted pews, and acted as a backdrop as the couple said their vows.
The Barn was adorned with rich pinks ranging through hot, to magenta and cerise … with a chandelier of magnolia branches and blooms, rhododendron, roses and blossom that hung above the bridal table. Trailing vines dangled delicately above the guests’ heads, and glass baubles holding tea light candles added sparkle. The tables of bud vases and jars incorporated hints of purple and red (in amongst pink, of course!)
