REAL WEDDING - ERIN + ANDY

14 May 2016

THE COUPLE: Erin + Andy

GUESTS: 180

PALETTE: We chose yellows, greens and occasional reds through the florals using natives sourced by our florist and good friend. Gingham prints and picnic checks in red and white graced the tables and our reupholstered chairs for the signing table showed off a beautiful blue and white.

THE DRESS: I was after a dress that was practical and slim fitting , allowing me to sit on the picnic rugs with friends and also pair with sneakers at some point in the day. It was a short, lace design with a high neckline.

THE CEREMONY + RECEPTION: We are both naturalists who love bushwalking, gardening, native plants and camping. There is a nearby forest just a short walk from Long Gully which Andy and I both independently loved before we even met, and often enjoy walks there. We also grew up loving picnics with our families in the National Park so we thought it would be the perfect location to begin a family tradition. For the ceremony we had a two hundred and fifty metre long rope to line the aisle. It was set out and tied by my cousin, who was a navy seal in the US Navy. Flowers were also placed at the end of the white folded chairs. We repaired an old singer sewing machine table to sign the register on and reupholstered a number of stools with gingham prints to place around the table.

THE DÉCOR: Keeping with the outdoor picnic theme, we hired long trestle tables and umbrellas, as well as picnic blankets, pillows and long deck chairs in a red and white or blue and white stripe. Bunting was hung between the umbrellas, with wine barrels scattered for people to stand around. It was the perfect space for the children, who had their own small tables and woodland toys and masks to play with. Guests were able to engage in a game of cricket, totem tennis or throw a Frisbee.

THE FLOWERS: Our flowers were all natives, in keeping with our love of nature. The blooms were a mixture of yellow and red with green foliage, and were placed on the tables in glass jars and across wooden crates.

PHOTOGRAPHER: Evan Bailey was brilliant and captured the relaxed, outdoor and intimate atmosphere perfectly. The photos of Andy and I in the forest with the bridal party are particularly special whilst the snaps of the tug of war really showcased the fun-filled day.

FLORAL FRIDAY - BILLY BUTTON

13 May 2016

The pom-pom of the flower world, the round and bright yellow head sits atop an elongated stem to create a unique bloom. We absolutely love the idea of incorporating Australian natives into wedding floral décor – especially when it looks as pretty and fun as this. Billy Buttons are a common addition to floral arrangements as it gives the bouquet height and breaks up any larger floral varieties. Take a look at all the different ways you can use this unmissable bloom…
