In Wedding Flowers by Kyla HelgesonLeave a Comment

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.

Dear Delilah Florist

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.

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.
