The delicate peachy hues of David Austen Roses teamed up with silvery leaves and gum nuts and the vivid cerise of papery bougainvillea flowers combined with succulents and gum nuts created these pretty bouquets.
I just love these simple bouquets I found here on Lauren Drage’s photographic site.

I know this is not a “new” wedding – in fact Kelly and Chris are just about coming up for their first wedding anniversary – but I think it is so gorgeous that it’s definitely worth a second look for a number of reasons.
One good reason is the amazing use of succulents to make really lovely favours and table centrepieces. These great little masterpieces are all diy by the bride. Not only do they look great but you wouldn’t have any worries about your florals wilting or getting tired by the end of the day. Just look at these…
The succulent theme was incorporated into the wedding stationery too
Who would have thought that succulents would make such amazing bouquets and boutonierre!
Yellow! What a happy sunshiney feel it gives to a wedding day.

The happy floral arrangements are delightful – so bright and natural.
The table settings are great too. I really like the silverware tied with twine and the cute little pun!

I don’t really know where to start with this wedding. Every part of it just divine – from the ceremony to the reception there are so many delightful, finishing touches that it makes you happy just to look at the amazing images from the very talented duo from Erin Hearts Court.
Mary and Stefan are a perfect match!
The venue for the ceremony was decorated with swathes of black and white fabric which framed the couple, large fabric lanterns and a variety of pumpkins threw in a splash of happy orange
The nine bridesmaids wore a variety of outfits and each carried an individual bouquet that was lush and full of colour.
Meg from La Partie Events who was responsible for the fantastic styling of the whole wedding said about the reception area “I wanted to incorporate splashes of bright color with the flowers so I started with bright coral peonies and added into the mix: bright orange parrot tulips, deep and bright pink roses, deep red roses, red and orange berries, bright pink cobra lilies, mauve tree peonies, deep burgundy and pink dahlias and some other funky floral accents. The floral containers were a mix of mason jars, Anthropologie goblets and mercury glass vases and I incorporated mini cloth and glass lanterns from Luna Bazaar and Anthropologie on some of the tables for fun. I completed the reception look with floating candles wrapped in birch wood or black and white stripped ribbon. Each table was also adorned with green oranges and mini pumpkins at each place setting.”
The food was a combination of delicious English style comfort-food during cocktail hour, ( Stefan is an expatriate Englishman working and living in California), followed by a lush family-style buffet display. It looks so tasty!!!

I just love this wedding that i found here on Vibrant Photography.
How fantastic to be able have the best of both worlds for your wedding! East meets West – I just love the richness of the red and the wonderful detail in the traditional Chinese clothes.
December 4th, 2009Cara and John
I have known Cara for years so was really excited when she sent through the lovely photos from her wedding to John at The Hyatt in Sanctuary Cove on the Gold Coast. What a stunning backdrop those windows make. Quite spectacular.
The favours were jelly beans… the girl’s were hidden inside beautiful little draw string pouches hand made by John’s grandmother. Such a lovely personal touch. Cara’s dress is absolutely glorious and the work on the bodice and train is immaculate.
And what a great idea for table names. So much nicer to be seated at a table called “love” or “serenity” rather than Table Number Nine! The Princess Peach and Super Mario cake toppers are a lovely touch too – perfect for Cara and John who are both computer whizzes!
