The Park Wedding (Valentine's Day 2014)

Melissa approached me because she wanted a completely non-floral wedding with keepsake bouquets.

Melissa had decided on a colour scheme of white, black and red and wanted to include the British Heart Foundation pins that they gave to each guest within the bouquets and buttonholes.

Melissa's dress was stunning and the ruffled shoulder provided the inspiration for the style of her heart shaped bridal bouquet. 

I continued the line of the ruffle down one side of the heart using scarlet double-faced satin ribbon and chiffon with British Heart Foundation pins nestled into the ruffles. 

The other side of the heart was made using a vine of cultured pearls, Swarovski crystals and red crystal hearts to echo the detail of Melissa's dress and accessories.

Melissa asked for a mini version of her bouquet for their daughter who looked precious in a matching dress.

I designed this as a pomander to make it easier for little hands to hold.

The other bridesmaids wore striking black and red dresses.  

Their bouquets were made using black ribbons in the same style as the Bridal bouquet. 

 Black jet beads were used instead of pearls.

The wedding party looked stunning and perfect for a Valentine's Day ceremony.

The buttonholes also used the British Heart Foundations pins at the centre with an outer ribbon heart to echo the style of the bouquets.

A child-safe version was worn by Melissa and David's handsome son.

It was a joy to design and make something so individual and unusual for this striking wedding.

The Helmer-Kuchenmeister Wedding (September 2013)

 I was thrilled to be asked to help with my brothers wedding to the fabulous Anna. 

Anna loves Sunflowers and and wanted a mix of purple flowers to contrast with them so I used a mix of  Alstoemeria, Lisianthus, Freesia, Campanula, Aconitum and Calla Lillies to create this beautiful and heavingly scented bouquet. 

The bridesmaids bouquets were a simple posy of striking Carnations in a deep plum with a purple butterfly as an accent.

The posies looked stunning as part of the rockabilly style bridesmaid outfits.

The mother of the bride and groom corsages were delicately coloured Germini and Gypsohila.

I also made fascinators for both mothers to compliment their outfits.

The buttonholes were bright Germini to complement the Sunflowers in Anna's bouquet together with Campanula.

The Groom also had a video camera in his buttonhole to provide an alternative view of the day!

The pew ends were a light and a bright Germini, Lisianthus, Fressia and Bear Grass. 

The two pedestal arrangements at the front of the church included statement Sunflowers, Germini, Stocks, Limonium, Calla Lillies, Alstroemeria, Lisianthus, Freesia, Campanula, Aconitum, Eucalyptus, Ruscus, Phoenix Roebelenii Palm, China and Bear Grasses.


The centrepieces were internally lit floating balls of gypsophila in tall martini vases complete with purple butterflies.

 Hankerchief vases of Gypsophila with purple deco balls decorated the windowsills.

I also made Anna a simple tiara using freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals. 

She was a very beautiful bride.

It was a wonderful wedding and I loved helping to make Johan and Anna's dream day a reality.
