Two weeks into the competition and we are being flooded with some amazing entries into our “Top Gun” Wedding Flowers Competition. If you are an Australian bride you are spoiled for choice with the high-end floral design talent that is out there.
On this week’s blog, I want to mention a few florists whose work truly stood out to me.
Oh-So-Feminine Wedding Flowers
The first was Donna Hicks of Dear Delilah Florist in Morwell, Victoria. I am in love with her wild and carefree, green and white bouquet design above.
What I love about the competition is that every year among the trends there is also a design that we haven’t seen before. This year, Dear Delilah Florist delivers that design with a rustic blossom collar but paired with soft pastel pink feather and tulle. It makes for an oh-so-feminine statement piece.

Taking the rustic blossom element and using it this time in a bouquet design, Dear Delilah Florist, pairs it with pretty soft feminine blooms of roses and deliver this gorgeous bridal posy.
Free-flowing Garden Bridal Blooms
Next we have Lindy Watt from Lush Floral Designs in Albany, Western Australia. Their entry showcases a look that is so popular with brides at the moment: loose, free-flowing garden blooms and foliages. They have used the same combination of blooms to create designs which are cohesive and complementary to the overall wedding style.
The bridal bouquet is complemented beautifully by the arrangement on the cake and cascading blooms from the cake table.
A great way to use blooms to decorate is a sweet floral spray on either a piece of artwork like the example below or a seating chart or directional entrance sign.
Sweet Bridal Bouquet O’ Mine
The last florist profiled this week is Anna Williams of Ethos Interiors from Railway Estate, Queensland. Her entries from the cutest wedding with white weatherboard backdrop, the doorway adorned with masses of green textured foliage makes for a gorgeous wedding day photo.
The bride carried the sweetest little bouquet of Roses, Lisianthus, Carnation, Blushing Bride, Hypericum Berry, Geraldton Wax, Dusty Miller and Blue Gum. Tied so elegantly with black and white stripe hanging ribbon.
The same style of posy bouquets with pastel colour tones matched the bridesmaid’s dresses beautifully. With the lace detailing it made for a very pretty and feminine bridal party style.
