There is something so striking and appealing about a simple winter palette, which is why grey, white and green is up there as a fave. The muted tones of grey and green are warm and cosy and look lovely on a winter’s day. Imply quality, tranquility and comfort with these muses…
Bridesmaids look lovely dresses in grey on a winter’s day. For the venue, opt for grey tablecloths and/or napkins to keep the feel and have everything flow with one another. Flower selections should include textured foliage such as dusty miller and brunia balls mixed with green foliage and white roses and ranunculus.

THE COUPLE: Kelly + Patrick
PALETTE: Blush and navy. Patrick really wanted a navy suit and I loved the colour of the bridesmaid dresses!
THE DRESS: My gown featured ivory embroidered tulle, including roses spun with metallic thread. The bodice encompassed a sweetheart neckline, satin underlay with sheer lace outer layer, embroidered roses around the boat neckline, sheer lace cap sleeves and pearl buttons lining the back. The dress cinched in at the waist, wrapped with a satin ribbon belt that tied into a classic bow and flowed onto a soft draped A-line skirt.
THE CEREMONY + RECEPTION: We chose Longview Vineyard because of its truly stunning surroundings, including beautiful rolling hills, vineyards, old gum trees and superb gardens. We met the cellar door staff on our first visit and they made planning and holding the wedding such a breeze. They are willing to go the extra mile for you, have a wealth of experience in hosting weddings and most importantly they’re friendly, easy going and fun to work with.
THE DÉCOR: For ceremony decor we utilised our own white double doors and picket fence and decorated them with two beautiful, natural and overgrown foliage garlands consisting of berries and blooms. For aisle pews, flowers were arranged in antique jars and decorated with burlap and lace. Fresh rose petals in mixed pale tones were also lightly scattered down the aisle. We designed and made a lot of the aspects of the day ourselves, including the drinks and food menus and chalk boards. My mother’s wedding dress was on display (I wanted to wear it, however it was way too small for me!). We also placed framed pictures of family members from their own wedding days across a nearby table, which we felt was a reminder of where we have both come from and honoured the special place that family has in our hearts.
THE FLOWERS: My bouquet was so beautiful and feminine, possessing a fresh ‘garden picked’ feel. It incorporated David Austin roses, O’Hara roses, coral charm peonies, Queen Anne’s lace, scabiosa, lisianthus and berries, in tones of blush pink, ivory, white, peach, blonde, dusty green and pops of coral. Olive, ivy berry, silver dollar and lambs ear were used as foliage fillers. Long flowing antique lace and hand dyed French silk bound the stems. Tied to my bouquet were my grandmother’s and great grandmother’s wedding rings, which was a way for me to have lost loved ones a part of the special day.
PHOTOGRAPHER: Kelsey photographed our friend’s wedding and we had an absolute ball with her on their special day. We also loved Kelsey’s finished products and that was all we needed to confirm that the bright, bubbly and supremely happy Kelsey would be the one to catch all the memories from our day. She was able to make us feel at ease, had fantastic ideas and was a smiling, friendly face on the other side of the camera. She is truly fabulous!
