We're thrilled to once again be featured in The Wedding Co. Magazine for 2013! It's always a lot of fun working with the girls from the Wedding Co. ... always a twist on the ordinary!
This time, we were given only a single word and a colour palette as inspiration! From this little glimspse of inspiration, we were to create a bouquet that would be married with both a wedding cake and wedding stationery for a 'group' shot in the studio! We had no idea who the other two creative contributors would be and so we couldn't chat amongst ourselves ahead of time!
We were up for the challenge ... check our 'featured' page below! (The entire feature can be found on pages 36 - 41 here.)
We're always excited to find our work in the pages of Weddingbells magazine!
This particularly bold and beautiful tablescape is featured in the Spring/Summer 2013 issue of Weddingbells - on newsstands now!

This wedding was featured in WedLuxe magazine!
Raewyn + Charlie's wedding was held on her family's private horse farm at the base of the Blue Mountains on a perfect early summer day in June!
We had soooo much fun working with Crystal (Distinct Occasions) and Paras (Design 2 Decor) to put together this elegant and organic feeling landscape-inspired gem!!!
This wedding was chock full of pale pastels ... lavender, blush, butter, ivory, soft green ... and seaonal florals including peonies, garden roses, delphiniums, lavender, herb and fern plants, moss, lily of the valley, succulents, lisianthus, clematis vine and other tidbits of gardeny goodness!
All the lovely rough luxe details worked to tie the 'look and feel' together ... cork bark, natural wood tables, crystal stemware, custom floral chandelier, co-ordinated oatmeal linens and tent draping and even the custom carpeted flooring and dance floor!
Here are some of our own photos of the day ... enjoy!
We created a couple of enormous 'twiggy trees' (15 ft high) which not only looked fab, they also served to help increase the intimacy of the space by making the ceiling feel a little lower!
We designed a few types of centrepieces ... the first was a a low and lush, landscape-inspired floral for the round tables. There was no visible vessel and they featured ferns, moss, succulents and garden blooms married with cork bark.
The second style of centrepiece was for the long communal tables and featured a continuous landscape of florals and ferns interspersed with candles, succulents and moss stretching along the full length of the tablescape.
Hanging in the centre of the space, the 6ft x 5ft metal and wood base for this jaw-dropping floral chandelier was custom-made by Design 2 Decor and then we infused it with a ton of floral goodness!

We had a lot of fun dreaming up, designing and installing the florals and elements for Sarah + Greg's wedding in The Observatory at Spencer's at the Waterfront in Burlington on the north shore of Lake Ontario!
The Observatory is a relatively new venue with gianormous floor to ceiling glass windows (nearly 20ft high) overlooking Lake Ontario, right on Burlington's revitalized waterfront ... the space and view are magnificent!
Sarah's floral colour palette showcased shades of green, grey, stone, ivory and white in a very natural and organic fashion.
Elements and flowers included birch branches and birch bark, cork, flagstone, moss, succulents, jute, pods, ferns, anemones, antique hydrangea, ranunculus, dusty miller and host of other textural bits and pieces!
The ceiling in The Observatory is amazing, but very, very high ... so we created and installed a couple of nearly 20ft tall 'birch' trees that were covered in moss, succulents and dripping with warm candlelight!
Bride and Groom, Lori + Roy, are creative, theatrical types ... we were hooked when she shared her ideas for a 'speakeasy' inspired affair that took cues from the prohibition era of the 1920's and early 1930's!
To garner inspiration, we dreamed about bird cages and nests, shoeshine boys, cigar & cigarettes, crooked gamblers, bobby cops and The Cotton Club!
We designed in bold colours (black, white, red) and florals that were feminine and textural (black and ivory lace in layers) ... garden roses, orchids, dahlias.
Complete with bird cage veil, fascinators, Marcel Wave and bob updos these flapper styled ladies looked amazing! So did the fellas ... all decked out in top hats and tails!
Cheers and best wishes to Lori + Roy ... we had a lot of fun designing for your Wedding Day!!
