Destination Australian Native Wedding

Destination Australian Native Wedding

I am always so honoured when friends and family ask me to create their flowers for their special day. Friends Zoe and Simon, planned a beautiful destination wedding down the coast at Gerringong for their special wedding day.

Zoe wanted the Australian Native look and feel to match the stunning setting they had for the wedding ceremony. What we created was a mix of white and lemon coloured flowers which were used through out the entire day. The mix of flowers used through out Zoe's wedding bouquet was grevillea, freesias, kangaroo paw, buddleia, flannel flowers and silver eucalyptus gum foliage. We ribboned off the ends with hessian material, to tie in the rustic country scenery.

It was an amazing view, over looking all of Gerringong on a private property.

The signing table had a cluster of vintage jars, filled with billy buttons in one jar, wattle in another, white flannel flowers in another. There was a maiden hair fern incorporated to give the table a touch of green.

For the reception we wanted to bring the country and Australian-a feel to the venue. We grouped bundles of ivy and eucalyptus gum, with a mix of bouvardia, grevillea and kangaroo paw. We then hung these bunches off each light fitting. It matched the hand made bunting that was hung from rigging points within the room. There was also country rustic vintage jars placed on tables through out the room, these jars were filled with a mix of  yellow and white natives.

Zoe's words…."Rheannon created the most beautiful arrangements for our wedding day, I requested Australian native earthy tones and she made our vision come to life. Loved her work!"

Bye for now. Love Me xx

Flower Crowns, The Truth Behind Them….

Flower Crowns, The Truth Behind Them….

I Need To Explain, How These Work!!!

flower crown, halo, flowers in hair, hair piece, pastel flower crown, horse racing, white flower crown, double bay florist, rheannon lee floral designsIts most girls dreams to wake  up every morning and wear a flower crown for the day. Ok…. thats my dream!!!
Flower crowns look so beautiful, elegant and can make you feel like a princess. They are worn on wedding days, for hens parties, and of course the races.  We can always make what you need.  What we have to do to construct them is, individually wire every leaf, berry, flower, succulent, ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING!!!!

 

After you have wired everything (the correct way to make it sturdy and strong), you need to wrap the floral material around each piece of wire.  (This is after you have lost the feeling in your finger tips!!!)

Please please PLEASE….. Don’t go on to “HOW TO DIY FLOWER CROWN VIDEOS” and try and get the advice to CABLE TIE the flowers together. As I heard a horror story. A bride was sitting at her hen’s lunch, the flower crown fell to pieces, throughout the entire lunch. So please don’t take that VERY STUPID  advice.

Get a professional florist to put it together for you. What us florists need you to understand, it can take up to over an hour to make. Sometimes even longer depending on the style of design you are after.  So if you give us enough notice we can make it happen. So please don’t call the morning of your event,  thinking one can be magically put together. (You would be surprised how many phone calls we do receive.)

Having a big focal piece on the crown (like a peony, orchid or even a garden rose), can give it that extra special look.  I must admit seeing little flower girls, all dressed up. Then you add there tiny little flower crown as an angelic halo, they just look too cute!!! Even though they take a long time to make.  I am a sucker and I love making them for myself.

 

Lucky thing for me is…. My husband is into horse racing, so I love spring carnival time, flower crowns and bubbles. Oh… and the horse too, hahahahah.

WHITE FLOATING POOL ARRANGEMENT FOR WEDDING….

Now this is a wedding I won’t ever forget!!!

Coming up with new and exciting ideas for brides is something I love to do. When I was asked if I could create a floral piece to fill a large pool, the challenge was on.  Off I went and the researching began, I was a woman on a mission.  The design had to be as large as two trestle tables, covered in all white flowers and also have candles, that lit up the arrangement during the evening.

Once I had the base, we had to attach all the flower materials to it, to keep it together and sturdy. Then the 5 hour process of soaking the oasis, then
designing the flowers all
over this MASSIVE frame evenly. Once finished, we then had to transport it to the eastern suburbs for the wedding. We got it there, but then…… We had to get it to the swimming pool!!! Five of us carried it in two halves and assembled it when it was in the pool. Once it was in, all the final touches were made.  Thank goodness it was a hot day for a swim, but to our cold surprise the pool heater hadn’t been turned on.

Not knowing at the time, the father of the bride was filming us as it was going in the water. It was CRUNCH TIME and this had to work. As  you can see from my excitement in the video, it all came together and there was much relief and laughs afterwards.

All of the house was filled with white beautiful flower arrangements. The entire house looked elegant, sophisticated and had a very Vogue, white Hampton’s feel to it.

The bridesmaids had perfect soft pink rose dome shaped bouquets. The bride had  GORGEOUS white calla lilies, with a beautiful trailing white satin ribbon wrapped around the stems.

To my surprise, the wedding featured in “Bride to Be – Special Cakes edition”. After all the hard work on this big event, it was so rewarding seeing  my work printed in such a popular wedding magazine over two pages.  Hope you enjoyed the video, bye for now. Love me xx
