Lavender Bouquet Trend

18th December 2013

Ranunculus, astilbe, hyacinth, sweet peas, tulips, anenomes, andromeda, roses and Dusty Miller make up this intoxicating concoction of springtime lavender goodness I just can’t get enough of. This is the very picture of the latest trend in wedding flowers – unstructured bouquet arrangement of pretty complementary pastels with deep colours and a touch of white in a big, beautiful rose of perfection. Hallelujah! Thank you, Willow Bud, for this feast my eyes will be sustained by for quite some time.  //// Images by Artography

Horses at Weddings

5th November 2013

Being Melbourne Cup Day, we thought some marvellous horsey weddings would put us all in the spirit. It’s really quite magical to include your trusty stead and best friend in your wedding. And there are many wedding venues on the Sunshine Coast where you can do just that. They certainly make for some seriously stunning wedding photos.  Above two images by Willow and Sage Photography //// Above image: Emma Nayler Photographer Above image by Jennifer Oliphant Photographer Above image by Boots Photography   Above collage by Boots Photography .

Surprise Backyard Wedding

30th April 2013

Something we have noticed cropping up more and more lately is the surprise backyard wedding. All the guests arrive, thinking they are turning up for a birthday party or engagement party, while it actually turns out to be the wedding itself! I even attended one such wedding myself just a couple of weeks ago in Coorory. It was really lovely and laid back, and just what this particular low key couple wanted.  Many brides and grooms are choosing to do it their own way, but make still it special and beautiful by getting a professional planner and stylist on board,…

The Magic of Owls at Your Wedding

5th July 2012

Let me tell you a little something about owls. No, really, stay with me – this is relevant to weddings! Owls traditionally are a very respected creature in many countries across the globe. The Greeks believed owls represent status, intelligence and wealth. In Celtic, Egyptian and Hindu cultures, the owl is representative of guardianship. In our western culture, they denote all kinds of meaning, like wisdom, mysticism, transition and protection. In all, the owl is a creature many respect, and they definitely have an undeniable magical sense about them. Having an owl as part of your wedding may seem like a…

Wedding Styling Trend: Signage

8th May 2012

It is a very popular wedding trend of the moment, not to mention thoughtful and practical. Signage at your wedding ceremony and reception will both help your guests to navigate their way about the joint and look drop dead cute and gorgeous, adding a sweet touch to your Sunshine Coast wedding styling. You can have all sorts of signage at your wedding. You can use a few rustic street-sign-style arrows in pine and white to direct your guests this way and that or provide your program on a sign, rather than print individual ones (save a tree!) You can display the…
