Dog Flowers

Is there anything cuter than a dog with blooms on a wedding day?  No not really. 

A gorgeous fur baby from a wedding last month captured to perfection by Studio 60 Photography.

So glad our bride Vanessa requested these blooms.  Anyone else for dog blooms?

Cheese Party for Hooray Magazine

We have a firm belief that a party is not a real party unless there is at least one cheese platter and a bottle of red, and today's shoot is all about gorgeous cheeses and styling of a cheese table as printed in the current issue of party magazine Hooray.

The images were captured in gorgeous detail by Prue Franzmann Photography, with styling by Victoria Cameron and her team.  Green and Bloom created the hanging foliage installation, and grew the herbs on the table, with all decor, linen and furniture for the shoot being provided by our sister company Prop It Pretty.  Class Deller Designs custom made gold hand written calligraphy food tags and a stationary set, with Caxton Street Catering providing all the tasty morsels from vintage linen bound cheeses, dried grapes, fresh berries and figs and bespoke red wines.

Viewing the below images may result in you dreaming of cheeses for lunch, but trust us it would be worth it if they tasted as delicious as the ones we used in this shoot.

Real Wedding: Anecia and Alun

We've been waiting a while to put this wedding up on the blog but we think it's worth the wait! Bold colours, lines and spaces were the main feature of this urban wedding- and the celebration definitely delivered on fun and frivolity!

The graffiti adorned walls of the Brisbane Powerhouse were the perfect backdrop for the bright pops of colour, and the black and white striped table cloths added a classic modern touch to this reception venue. The reception room was a mix of urban elegance and colourful extravagance and the photographer Todd Hunter McGaw captured this vibrant essence perfectly.

All the florals on the day were created by us at Green and Bloom and featured unique touches of fruit and berries. Pop colours in warm tones were contrasted with lush fresh greens and added a summertime sweetness to the edgy venue.

One of our favourite pieces (and photographs!) was the cake made by Cakes by Judy C and we loved creating the vibrant floral adornments.

Romantic French Inspired Garden Wedding Photoshoot

We think this has got to be one of the most romantic venues in Australia, it truly does make your heart skip a beat. Add cascading dreamy florals, a timeless luxurious backless gown, a spectacular one of a kind marble cake alongside platters of delicious pomegranates, artisan bread and French cheese... well we really hope you are enchanted with this photo shoot as much as we are.

Set amongst the enchanting grounds of Deux Belettes in Byron Bay, this beautifully styled shoot by Little Gray Station features a long dining table lined with bentwood chairs, cascading with flowing grey linens and delicate florals. The whimsical bridal bouquet by Green and Bloom featured plum and lilac tones with fresh greens and was created in a naturalistic, asymmetrical style that fitted perfectly with the romantic garden inspiration. 

White Images captured the beauty of the estate with dramatic landscapes as well as the finer detail shots mixed with pewter calligraphy, lavender posies, maroons silks and white stoneware.  

Nestled in a picturesque alcove overlooking the stunning Deux Belettes grounds sits the beautiful marbled wedding cake by The Cake That Ate Paris, a modern reference to the opulence of French feasting.

This vintage styled shoot was inspired by a bygone era of opulence and glamour, featuring blue and white china, vintage crystal, pin tuck white linen, complemented with gorgeous garden styled blooms, romantic gowns, locally sourced organic desserts, set on a heritage protected property with the ‘Manson’ as the backdrop. The colours were keep soft and feminine, to ensure the blue and white china created a feature in the table setting.

The flowers, styling, planning and co-ordination of the shoot was undertaken by Green and Bloom, with the beautiful natural photography captured on the day by Terri Hanlon Photography who captured the photo shoot’s story through her soft, feminine, and natural photography style.

The star studded blue patterned china can be found at Prop It Pretty, along with all the other decor items like crystal vessels, linen napkins, silver cutlery and candle holders.

The cake created by Gillian Bell Cake was soft and moist, melting in the mouth. The wedding cake was a vintage design featuring a two tier Elderflower scented butter cake simply finished with a dusting of icing sugar and elderflowers in a two tier bunt design. Ingredients are organic, locally sourced, with the Elderflower that garnished the top of the cake being grown in Gillian’s very own garden.

Green and Bloom created the flowers with floral style including beautiful soft and graceful blooms like David Austin Roses, Peonies, Delphinium, Lisianthus, Queen Anne’s Lace, Borage, and Hydrangea, reminiscent of a vintage English Garden.  Green and Bloom created all the flowers for the day, and featured flowers in the table setting in various different crystal vases, from bud sizes to large footed bowls.

To complement the styling for the shoot and the model, the makeup was kept very natural, soft and glowy, keeping an emphasis the model’s porcelain tone skin looking flawless and effortless. Two different hair styles were created to complement the gowns with the first hair look aimed to keep the hair very soft and natural complemented with a fresh floral halo. The second hair look was ethereal with an old world feel with lots of texture and height. Ashley Rose created the looks to perfection.
