Last August, Bella Bloom Floral Designs worked with an amazing team of Brisbane wedding vendors to pull together a wedding giveaway valued at over $25,000. Today I’m sharing the stunning bouquet we created for our lucky winners Jen and Joel. This gorgeous couple won $700 to put towards their bridal party flowers!
After meeting Jen and Joel at their consultation, we couldn’t have been more excited about their theme. The look they were after was little bit Tuscan, featuring olive leaves and rosemary, with a cottage garden feel. Both Jen and Joel love to spend time together in the garden, and apparently have an amazing herb garden, so it seemed appropriate to include some rosemary throughout the designs, from the bouquets, to buttonholes and even the flower girl crown!
Not only did the rosemary add to the feeling that their wedding was uniquely “them”, it added a beautiful touch of fragrance!
We wanted to make sure Jen really loved her bouquet, so when she mentioned David Austin “Juliet” roses were her favourite, we scoured our sources to find the most beautiful peaches and cream coloured flowers. They aren’t always available in August, so the addition of these beautiful blooms was a real treat for Jen, and became the feature flower in the bouquets, along with delphinium, ranunculus and hypericum berries.
The whole, free-form and organic look was finished off with long trailing velvet ribbon attached to Jen’s bouquet to add a touch of luxury and create movement as she walked down the aisle.
The lovely Jen had this to say about our floral design:
“From our first meeting with Kelly from Bella Bloom we knew we were in good hands. She was so knowledgeable and creative, and we had so much faith in her that she would create special and unique floral designs for our wedding. And the bouquets, boutonnières and corsages she personally delivered to us on the morning of our wedding could not have been more stunning. The olive leaves and rosemary stems gave the arrangements a wild and rustic feel (and delightful scent), and the inclusion of David Austin roses was such a wonderful surprise we weren’t sure would be possible! Kelly – you are so incredibly talented and words cannot express how grateful we are to you for our gorgeous flowers!”
