Apart from the hibiscus, there’s perhaps no other flower that says beach wedding than gorgeous fragrant frangipanis.

Indian styled weddings use an exuberant display of colour, finery and kitsch – think rich fabrics, shamiana (tents) with wild colours, saris used [...]

If I had my time over, I would have sunflowers at my wedding. Big, happy, jolly, bright and extroverted sunflowers. Huge smiling faces, bright petals dancing as you walk and long stems to dramatically elongate me as I walk down the aisle. Perfectly representing how happy I am with my amazing husband. Making a happy [...]

My best friend, Shannon and her gorgeous man Al married yesterday in beautiful but freezing Tasmania. We have had the most wonderful time with their family and friends, decorating and celebrating their wedding.

I think this might be the most beautifully decorated aisle I have ever seen – better than any celebrity wedding, more stunning than any wedding I have attended. The chandeliers over the aisle are simply divine, the coastline in the background, the floristry and the flower studded chair covers all combine to make a truly [...]
