FLOWER OF THE WEEK: ICE QUEEN

We had Katerina (@lustlist_) ambassador once again for this weeks Flower of the week. She gave the flowers a perfect, luxe home and styled them with a modern, classic twist!

Spring has sprung buts not exactly been the warmest weather so we channeling our inner Elsa with this pretty creation. All of Octobers best: blossom, snapdragons, snowball, ranunculus in shades of white, topped with an icy blue orchid and matte white leaf, heaped into a gorgeous marble vase.

REAL WEDDINGS: ASHLEIGH & MATTHEW

Its been raining so much in Sydney lately (finally!) which is great for the garden and our farmers but is really the dreaded monster on a wedding day. All our October couples have handled it so well so far, but one of our faves from this year have been Ash and Matt, who tied the knot at Centennial Vineyards earlier this year, with soft creamy white and nude blooms: think orchids, garden roses, dahlias, hydrangea, and lots of soft foliage. The heavens opened on Ash and Matt just after the ceremony and Olguin Photography got the most gorgeous shots of the bridal party making a run for it inside, and Ash counts them amongst her fave photos pf the day!

REAL WEDDINGS: GORGINA & TOMI

Chic AF is how we would describe this gorgeous all white wedding, with a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, traditional elements and a super cool black and white reception. Roses, snapdragons, lisianthus, parrot tulips and magnolia bound with soft white ribbon made super slick yet gardeney bouquets, with a gorgeous fabric and floral draped arch creating the perfect backdrop!

_I7A3760.jpg

Hi Freya, Favourite flower and why? Think fluff-ball delicious-ness and pink. So Peonies, Hydrangeas, Dahlias, Orchids & Flowering Gum... but then there's the precious little ones... like Lilly-of-the-valley, Forget-me-knots & Violets... & the divinely fragrant Magnolia, Daphne, Sweet Pea & Lilac oooooh too many to choose... & I think I've forgotten some!!! I guess that's why I'm a florist 

Your go to cocktail? Mojitos & Pina Coladas are my picks... I think I spent most of my 20's drinking something called a Sugar Rush (Malibu & pink lemonade)... & I still love it coz it smells like coconut and it's pink... my two favourite things!!!

Favourite dog and why? I'm lucky to love my first born fur-baby... Sasha my darling Golden Retriever... who is my favorite dog in the whole wide world... that ever was and ever will be.  

I love Burmese Mountain Dogs (my husband doesn't know it yet... but we are getting 5 of these dogs!!!) I think I'm a big dog person... but I do love all miniature poodle combos.... they are all too much cuteness!!

What is your fave thing to make? I think I can claim the title Queen of the Flower Crown. Just don't ask me to make a small one... I only make big or bigger - think day-of-the-dead style/Frida Kahlo inspired.

Fave colour combo? PINK on PINK & more PINK!!! I adore jewel tones & I love gelato tones too & what about bling... metalics are fabulous too!!

Favourite wedding venue? Moby Dicks, Whale Beach, love it love it love it! Your own private wall of ocean as your backdrop in an intimate space. This is how I see my house in my other life!! Over sized furniture with mass on mass flower urns everywhere, what more is there??!! & fun fact, it's on the Northern beaches! Otherwise private property weddings are the best fun ever!!! With the challenges that present themselves on these locations you get to see all kinds of crazy creativity that ultimately makes the venue unforgettably unique & fun!
