Rhiannon and James met in their high school history class. And the rest is history… Boom, tish!
I actually feel like this little play on words has been building up my whole life. It really helps that bride, Rhiannon, grew up to be a history teacher herself! I guess that class really made a lasting impression… one that will, quite literally, go down in history – at least, Rhiannon and James’ history! Okay. I’ll stop.
Fated to be together, obviously, the pair spend a good 12 months planning their wedding with vintage vibes. The bride drew inspiration from the 1950’s in her choice of bridesmaids dresses, which her late Nanna would have adored. The bride herself donned ultra glam old hollywood waves in her hair and a flattering long-sleeved lace gown to suit the romantic setting for her Sunshine Coast Hinterland Wedding. Her look was topped off with a dreamy romantic bouquet by Sunshine Coast florist, Woods & Bloom in her signature unruly style, featuring the Rhiannon’s favourite bloom – the prettiest of pink peonies.

We were friends first, and still are best friends.” “I loved the process of creating the floral designs for my wedding- I’d always known that I wanted pink peonies but I didn’t know how to incorporate them into a bouquet that was the big, unruly style I liked. Being able to talk to Cat about pretty much every single flower that went into each bouquet, and the way she really took into account the theme of my wedding and made sure every detail matched was so lovely.” “My best friend Isabelle and I met on student exchange 7 years ago and have been best friends ever since. She flew over from Scotland just for the weekend, bless her!” “Even though I’d talked with Cat (fromWoods & Bloom) at length about everything, I was gobsmacked by the end product! My bouquet was so much better than even I’d hoped for and the bridesmaids’ were perfect with their dresses. Every single person who looks at my wedding photos says something like, ‘those are the best flowers I’ve ever seen!’, and I couldn’t agree with them more! I couldn’t have asked for a better florist – I’m so grateful for the way Cat made sure she created exactly what I wanted and made it even better.”
