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. Rheannon Lee xx
