This April wedding was one of my favourites from this year. Nicole and Chris decided to elope to Sydney from Wagga with just their nearest and dearest surrounding them for a harbourside ceremony, followed by a gorgeous lunch at Quay. Nicole decided to ditch tradition and opted for a divine short lace dress, and wanted soft pretty florals to complement. We decided on whites and greens for Nicole- dahlias, roses, snow berries, begonia- and something with a little colour for her Bridesmaid to hold- hyacinth, lisianthus, roses, ivy berry- colours that looked gorgeous next to her pale blue dress. Nicole wanted something simple for the tables, and I used my precious vintage blue mason jars (the only Bride to have the honour so far!) and filled them with lisianthus, hydrangea and soft eucalyptus foliage, the soft blues and pinks just enough to add some interest but not to take away from the harbour views. Chris and Nicole were captured to perfection by Milton Gan Photography, and Nicole's hair and makeup were by lovely friends of Clementine VHhair and Tobi Henney Makeup and Hair.

As soon as I read an email from Nicole that read "I love yellow, and pops of yellow in the flowers would be great" I knew we were a match made in wedding heaven! The vision that Nathan and Nicole shared had all the hallmarks of the perfect summer wedding: a January date, a gorgeous beachside venue (Summersalt), a 50's inspired Teeki Designs by Amy Oram wedding dress, a polka dot bridesmaid dress (!!!) and bright florals everywhere. But when the day rolled around, the heavens had opened and it was one of those stormy summer days. Despite this, they forged on with the help of an army of white umbrellas and stuck to their original plan- no rushed indoor ceremony for these two! Pure White Photography captured the day perfectly, and I loved putting together the divine garden roses, dahlias, lisianthus, tuberose and billy button bouquets, and decorating the tables and entrance at Summersalt with sunflowers, snapdragons, roses and dahlias in summer bright tones...but that dress! Amy from Teeki truly outdid herself this time! It just goes to show that despite the rain, true love will always shine- all together now: awwww! See more gorgeous photos here x

Love is not supposed to be something that you can see, however when I met Nancy and Kon one sunny Saturday morning for coffee, I could honestly see it crackling between them. Individually two of the nicest and most gorgeous people you will ever meet, together they are just magic. Both from big families and looking at a guestlist of over 200 with the reception to be held at Sergeants Mess, they still wanted to create a homey, slight rustic and natural atmosphere with the flowers. We used loads of hydrangea in pale blue and green to match their stationary, and then loads of fluffy white dahlias, tuberose, kale, ivy berry, iceberg roses, freesias and gorgeous succulents wrapped in moss and twine intersected with blooms in vintage bottles. Nancy's bouquet was kept soft and rambling, with a slightly longer stem bound with natural twine to match Kon's dahlia and twine buttonhole. Nancy looked like a dream, in THAT DRESS (!) and stunning makeup by Make Up By Megan. The images were captured by Lillie Brennan of Shutter + Lace - Photography. This wedding was an absolute dream to work on and the photos take my breath away every single time I see them (see more here) x

Lace. Coral peonies. The most divine farm setting. A helicopter?! All of these things were amongst the divine details of Sonja and Dean's wedding last year. Kicking off with a gorgeous ceremony on a private property in Greendale, framed by lush grey curtains and followed by a party reception at Menangle House, Sonja wanted a rustic, bohemian but glamourous feel to the day. Her lace gown was complemented by a lush bouquet of the most amazing peonies, david austen and garden roses, gardenias, hydrangea and geraldton wax. We used the same combination in the Bridesmaids bouquet, and the coral played gorgeously off the grey gowns they wore. Angelic flower crowns of wax flowers were the perfect complement to the flower girls lace dresses (including Sonja and Dean's gorgeous baby daughter Marnie, such a cutie!). The reception tables were filled with vintage bottles of blooms: peonies, roses, gardenias, wax flowers and daisies, and vases wrapped in handmade doilies filled with candles. The result was stunning, and the photos really reflect what a gorgeous day it was.... you can see more photos on the Clementine facebook page here.

Vanessa and Chris were married at the gorgeous Wandin Estate, a lush vineyard in the Hunter Valley complete with a vintage cricket field, amazing views and a natural bushland clearing, perfect for a romantic outdoor ceremony. Vanessa wanted soft and dreamy blooms, so we went for a gorgeous combination of peonies, hyacinth, lisianthus, hydrangea, garden roses and geraldton wax in soft pink, lilac and cream tones, complememented by clusters of silverdust. My favourite details on the day included cut crystal bud vases on each table, angelic halos for the flowergirls and the gorgeous pale blue kombi, all captured to perfection by Popcorn Photography. There are even more amazing photos on Popcorn Photographys blog, and a few more on the Clementine Posy facebook page. Enjoy!

A simple, vintage inspired elegant day is what Kate and Mark envisioned for their December wedding day, and that is exactly they achieved. I literally gasped when Kate opened the door to recieve her bridal bouquet, she looked absolutely stunning. Fragrant gardenias, latte Julia roses, white David Austen roses and peach brandy roses bundled together were the perfect accessory! The reception was held at Ripples, and we offset the gorgeous harbour view with low vases of fragrant blooms- simple and effective. Such a divine day for a beautiful couple, and all captured by Creek Street Photography in these gorgeous photographs. See more at the Clementine Posy facebook page here x

Aleisha and Ryan were married last year at Sylvan Glen in September. It was a drizzly and windy morning, and they were prompted to move their ceremony inside due to the weather. They emerged from the ceremony to clear blue skies and Gemma Clarke Photography snapped some of the prettiest photos I have seen! Aleisha requested an eclectic and soft look for her blooms, and so we gathered together gorgeous ranunculus in creamy white, soft pink and a dusty mauve, delicate flannel flowers,
anemones, thrypp and gorgeous scented stock and hyacinth with a smattering of cymbidium orchids. Blooms clustered into vintage jars scattered the tables along with the super cute menu cards and origami paper cranes. Such a gorgeous day! You can see more photos on the Clementine Posy
