Florist with Flowers loves flowers. And more than that, we love working with you to create the flowers YOU want.
Getting engaged is such a special time, and there are so many things to consider when planning your wedding day. One thing you needn’t worry about is your flowers as our floral designers will professionally guide you though your options and help make your day look just as you had dreamed.
Every bride, every couple and every wedding is unique and is it especially important to choose a supplier you feel has the experience and attention to detail to achieve that for you. A wedding day gets no re-runs, so there are no second chances with your flowers. Unlike the venue, which you inspect and the dress that you try on,or the make up you have had trialed, you just don’t get the same opportunity with flowers. Sure we can, or any florist can give you a trial bouquet, but remember that we have no control over nature, and with a industry that is weather dependent, that is something you need to be on board with.
You need to trust your suppliers to make the best decision when the worst comes to worse. And without trying to be dramatic…..the worse can and does happen. Torrential rain causes damage rendering blooms unusable, a hot spell burns petals, and believe it or not, the temperature also can change the colour of blooms. White David Austins can be sun kissed with a blush of pink- sure, they are stunningly beautiful, but, if you are after pure white, it probably isn’t going to fit the brief. Is it? An experienced florist will be able to prepare you for the reality of fresh flowers at whatever time of year you plan to get hitched, and give you real options to achieve the look and feel that you are after.
We’d like to introduce you to a couple of special clients we have worked with:
The Couple: Kathryn and Michael
How they met: Introduced by friends at an 18th birthday party
Wedding Date: 10th November
The wedding date was chosen purely for the flowers that were available at that time of the year. Kathryn had her heart set of hydrangeas and Peonies so the wedding had to work around them! Peonies only have a very short season (somewhere between 4-12 weeks depending on the weather/temperature) which usually takes place somewhere between Mid October and Late December.
Kathryn’s beautiful bouquet was made with a neutral colour palette, featuring hydrangea, lisianthus and peonies.
Kathryn chose a rich regal purple for her bridesmaids gowns, and used a soft pastel blend of lisianthus, roses, hydrangea and silver suede (dusty miller) foliage.
The Ceremony: Garrison Church, The Rocks, Sydney. The iconic church, with its long aisle was decorated with simple pew ends and large floral displays at either side of the alter.
The Reception: The Sunset Room, Luna Park, Milsons Point, was adorned with tall candelabra arrangements, with the bridal table anchored with two large pedestal arrangements and a continuous floral hedge from end to end.
Best Part of the day: “There are too many to just choose one however….having our reception at Luna Park we were able to go on all the rides with our bridal party and have photos which was so much fun!
Best piece of advice for newly engaged couples: “Start early!!! The more you can organise early on, the better!”
Can we help you with an upcoming wedding? Florist with Flowers dedicated wedding consultant is happy to provide you with a one on one meeting to discuss your requirements and brainstorm together.
We recommend that you have both your dress and any dresses for your bridesmaids purchased before this takes place. Generally this meeting would take place no further in advance than 6 months prior to your wedding, in order to make the meeting as productive as possible in terms of making firm decisions.
Are you ready to come in? We can’t wait to hear your ideas, and start working to make your dreams come true!
