It's said that rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck, and  the day started out very overcast, windy and raining, but spoiler alert I'll skip right ahead and let you know that it cleared up at the most perfect moment right before the ceremony was due to begin. Now no newly wed couple would ever turn away a bit of good luck - but if there's one couple that doesn't need it, I'm sure it's Paige and Daniel. These two are so much on the same page and work together beautifully as a great little team. They had a vision for their special day and pulled it all together so well.

 Paige wanted an unstructured bouquet and her dream bloom was White King Proteas, as with all Brides I like to let them know that as we are dealing with a product of nature, unfortunately sometimes it can be the case that some blooms or foliage's are just not available on their chosen date. Leading up to Paige's date it was looking like we weren't going to be able to get our hands on these big beautiful proteas, and it was such a pleasure to be able to surprise Paige on the week and let her know that we could indeed include them for her.

We also included in Paige's bouquet big crimson Peony's which were just beginning their season in Australia, imported Astilbe and Seaholly and then local Roses, Ping Pongs, Tetragona Nuts and Bluegum foliage.

For the bridesmaids Paige opted for a white and green theme in the same style, which looked amazing with the girls gorgeous dresses.

For the boys we did simple white rose buttonholes with small details of Amaranthus, Bluegum and Waxflower.

At the ceremony and reception venue (Gary Radford Pavilion) we installed a beautiful welcome sign, table centrepieces, seating chart and ceremony arbour. The weather certainly proved to be a hindrance to the construction of the arbour - and I'm forever grateful to my little helpers Stelle and Erin for braving the rain and cold to pass me flowers on the ladder.

Stunning signage from Fast Print Studio really pulled everything together - I loved the typography Paige and Daniel selected for their seating chart, table numbers and welcome sign. 

Daniel+Paige-888.jpg

Each of the reception tables had a mason jar of Bluegum foliage and Gypsophilia, a really simple and effective way of brining warmth to a table.

One of my favourite things Paige and Daniel incorporated into their day was their own Ice Cream Stand, something so different and nothing I've seen in Broken Hill before - it definitely would have been a sweet treat for their guests (sorry about the pun, would be rude not too). I also loved how they incorporated Daniel's love of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, in little touches with the boys outfits and even a sneaky part of the wedding cake.

Paige and Daniel, thank you so much for the opportunity to be a part of your special day, it was an absolute pleasure.

Elle & Bryce

Venue - Silverton Hotel

Hair - Tonic Hair Spa

Make Up - Advanced Make Up Lounge

Cake - Sophisticake

I have met a lot of brides in my time, and dear Elle is probably one of the most organised of them all. Little Bloom was lucky enough to be asked to make some floral collars for Elle's two fur baby pugs when her now hubby popped the question in January, skip forward a short 8 months and Elle, Bryce and their families had pulled together the most amazing day! The wedding venue for ceremony and reception was Silverton NSW a short 20 minute drive from Broken Hill.

For Elle's bouquet we choose a selection of white blooms including imported peonies, ranunculi, roses and freesia, for texture and depth we added queen anne's lace, berzillia, gum and silver suede. 

Online-2.jpg

The bridesmaids and flower girls bouquets used similar flowers to Elle's bouquet but we used sea holly and burgundy ranunculi to tie back into the colour palette of the bridal parties dresses.

For Elle we created a hairpiece of white ranunculi, spray roses, sea holly, berzillia and gum. For the maids and flower girls we also wired individual pieces of sea holly and white roses for hair stylist Caitie Hibberd (Tonic Hair Spa) to place.

At the venue we filled jars with gyp flowers for the tables and dessert grazing station, we also created a garland of magnolia and gum over some vintage doors. I absolutely love the contrast between the magnolia and gum, it looked so lush and came up amazing in the couples professional shots. I was also lucky enough to once again work with the amazing Sophie from Sophisticake on some small floral placements to adorn her stunning cake, she also made the insane spread of cupcakes for the dessert grazing station, YUM.

Elle & Bryce - CONGRATULATIONS! and thank you so much for having me as a part of your special day, it was an absolute honour.

These two did not wipe these smiles off their faces the whole day, which said volumes about what an amazing day it was and about how much love was in the air. Hannah & Rebels wedding was in Broken Hill with the ceremony held inside the Regional Art Galley and the reception at the Gary Radford Pavillion. 

13096126_10208339511382004_9078989184409738470_n.jpg

Hannah's bouquet was a traditional posy of Roses, Snowberries, Lisianthus, Ping Pong Chrysanthemums and Blue Gum foliage, mostly white with a small touch of dusty pink. Her bridesmaids were similar versions of this in all white.

The buttonholes incorporated Roses, Snowberry and foliage, they also included sentimental charms Hannah had given us.

At the reception venue we had jars of Gypsophila and garlands of foliage adorning the long table settings. We also decorated birdcage lanterns with trailing ivy and spray roses and called in our not so vertically challenged friends (thank you Em) to help create a hanging backdrop of Gum and White Disbud Chrysanthemums. We also hung a large foliage and gypsophila heart over the dance floor and made sprays of foliage to adorn the welcome sign and seating chart.

So many of the decorations were handmade and many of the Bride and Grooms friends and family all pitched in to pull everything together, there was so much attention to detail and everything fitted perfectly.

Congratulations Hannah & Rebel and thank you so much for having Little Bloom be a part of your special day.

Tegan & Scott

Photography - Shona Henderson

Venue - Golding Winery, Lobethal SA 

I had the absolute privilege of doing the flowers for my cousin Tegan's wedding to her Husband Scott on the 16th January 2016. 

SHP_0357.jpg

And what a stunning wedding it was, at the picturesque setting of Golding Wines at Lobethal, the ceremony was on lush green lawns with a backdrop of rolling vineyards as far as the eye could see. The reception is held inside with large loft ceilings strung with festoon lighting, rustic timber and stone wall features and polished concrete floors. 

SHP_1096.jpg

On the Friday morning before the wedding myself, my cousin and my uncle all met at the wholesalers in Adelaide to fill our hired van to the brim with flowers to transport to Lobethal, we arrived at Golding later that morning with 1 Van and 1 SUV full of flowers and a whole day to knock out as much of the ceremony and reception flowers as possible. With a handful of helpful groomsmen, and after conquering my fear of heights, we were able to install the three 2M long hanging arrangements. These looked absolutely stunning but ended up taking a lot more time and flowers then I had first anticipated, so this was definitely a learning curve for me, but well worth the lesson. 

SHP_0455.jpg

The rest of the day was spent making vases of Roses, Hydrangea, Dahlias, Queens Annes Lace and Bouvardia to adorn the long long table settings. I also made some large feature arrangements for the ceremony featuring some stunning Peonies, Dahlias and Snapdragons. 

SHP_0472.jpg

The Bridal bouquet and bridal party were up next on the to-do list, Tegan had given me free range on her bouquet and I opted to include a few unusual elements such as some tall burgundy and brown feathers. I also incorporated some stunning pale pink peonies, burgundy and white dahlias, roses, tuberose, andromeda and gum foliage. The bridesmaids bouquets were smaller versions of this bouquet and all bouquets featured long trailing ribbons in double satin and velvet.

We also couldn't forget the Groom and all the Groomsmen, their buttonhole flowers all featured large pale pink roses with white misty and foliage. 

SHP_0953.jpg

All of the staff and managers at Golding couldn't have been more helpful, they let me spend the whole day prior to the ceremony installing and making up bouquets and then back in again at the break of dawn the next day. It's such a stunning venue and I cannot recommend it enough for any Adelaide brides.  

SHP_0441.jpg

All of the hard work that went into this wedding paid off threefold, it was a beautiful day and everything looked amazing, which is a credit to the brides attention to detail. Thank you Tegan & Scott for letting me be a part of such a special day xx

Gem Behind The Lens & Tonic Hair Spa Collab

I find myself particularly lucky to have a number of very talented friends, two of these friends are Gemma Gers (Photographer) and Caitie Hibberd (Hairdresser & Stylist). We recently came together to basically throw together a heap of ideas from our own fields that we have been wanting try out.

 

We all managed to put aside one day to dedicate to our little collab, we were lucky to recruit two stunning girls (Emma Perry & Shae McQuillan) to model and play test subjects on the day. At about 9am on a Sunday we all crammed into a small shop space - come makeshift studio with coffees in hand, a mountain of ideas and no idea where to begin.

After some quick discussion we laid out a plan for the day, originally we hoped to take the shoot to nearby Silverton to get some outdoor elements involved, however after seeing the stunning images Gemma was producing indoors, we opted to spend the majority of the day shooting inside.

2K3A0365.jpg

Caitie created two very different looks for both our girls which meant we were able to get a variety of shots that showcased her Hair Styling, Gem's photography and our Little Bloom bouquets.

2K3A0465.jpg

 

For the styling of the shoot we pulled together a number of different items, my favourites were the three vintage gowns and Little Blooms collection of vintage brass and copper vessels (all available for hire).

The result of a long day of shooting and styling can be seen in these stunning images - be sure to jump onto your socials and follow these girls Gemma @gembehindthelens and Caitie @tonichairspa for more glimpses of what we captured on the day.
