Real Wedding : Lauren and Tim

Lauren and Tim bought the most gorgeous country property at Mt Marrow earlier in the year, and moved all the way from Wellington Point in Redland Bay to country Ipswich.  The property's paddocks are full of rolling pastures of grass as golden as the sun, and Tim built their house just in time for their wedding earlier in the month.  Lauren has even bought herself 3 horses that spend their days chewing grass and running around in horsey joy - she saved them from the slaughter yards, so why wouldn't they be overjoyed with happiness now.

We were delighted to undertake Lauren and Tim's wedding styling and flowers for their day working alongside them to create a relaxed, country styled setting.  All decor, vases, linen and signage used for their wedding can be hired through Prop It Pretty .

Karen Buckle captured the below images on their day, such a perfect fit for Lauren and Tim who I'm pretty sure are our most relaxed couple EVER!

Enjoy,  Roberta

Real Wedding : Naomi and Steve at Spicers Peak Lodge

We get oh so excited when new clients call and they are getting married at our favorite venues. Spicers Peak Lodge on Cunninghams Gap is one of those places.  The location is at the top of the ridge with outlooks from the range down to the valley below.  Once you get off the highway you have  30 min drive up a dirt track (which becomes 4WD only in wet weather), past grassy gum bushland, then alpine forest, grassed paddocks with the happiest looking cows, and then finally you arrive at the 'top of the world' (that's what I call it anyway), and there is green rolling pastures, a lake to your left and then the lodge at the top of the hill in the distance.  Spicers Peak Lodge is a 5 star venue, and the staff are the kindest and most hardworking you will meet.  They really do go exceptional miles to ensure the bride and groom and their guests are wined and dinned like no other party they've ever been too on a wedding day.

Naomi and Steve were a wonderful couple to work with.  They wanted beautiful organic looking flowers that included natives with garden blooms, in warm tones.  Oh and a hanging floral installation above where the bride and groom were to sit.

Jason from Studio 60 captured their day to perfection.  We love being able to work with professional and highly skilled photographers, as the difference between someone who is a hobby photographer and someone who has lived and breathed photography most of their life is exceptional.  Jason always takes the most gorgeous images from the small details on the tables, to the emotion, and events unfolding on the day.

While Naomi and Steve didn't want any flowers for the ceremony, the reception was overflowing with beautiful country styled arrangements.  We also created a hanging installation in a custom made dark wood boxing that we installed above the tables. As the meals were served in platters we created arrangements spaced apart from each other so guests had easy access to food.

Oh how we love a Spicers wedding,

Real Wedding : Jessica and Ross's Spicers Hidden Vale Wedding

Its hard to believe that Jessica and Ross wed almost two years ago at Spicers Hidden Vale, the most gorgeous country venue in the Lockyer Valley.  I stumbled across their images on Marcus Bell's Studio Impressions blog and instantly fell in love (again) with the fun country vibe at their wedding.

Green and Bloom created all the flowers, and also provided lots of vintage bits and pieces that Jessica DIY hired to style her day.  It was also featured in wedding magazine last year, which one, I can't remember off the top of my head.

Spicers Hidden Vale along with Spicers Peak Lodge are two of our favourite country venues in the Darling Downs.  If your looking for a gorgeous, naturally beautiful country location, with fabulous food, we highly recommend them.

Enjoy, Roberta

Cally and Paul's French Byron Bay Wedding

Its hard to believe that Cally and Paul wed almost a year ago at the beautiful venue know as Deux Belettes in the Byron Bay Hinterland.  Their gorgeous wedding was featured recently in the Twine Magazine showing all the lovely details that made their wedding a day to remember. 

Green and Bloom undertook all the bright pretty flowers, as well as Styling for their day, mixing french styling with vintage, and a splash of colour for a refined and fun space.  Green and Bloom's french linen table runners were match with, brass vases, pastel mercury glass tealights, crystal decanters, and silver goblets, making a romantic french feel to the marquee space.

Cally and Paul's very talented photographers Feather and Stone Photography captured their day all on film, from the intimate beading on the dress, to the rolling grassy country side and french architecture of the venue.  We're so lucky to be able to work with the best in the industry.

Enjoy, Roberta x
