I love winter weddings! The weather is cool, no sweating or sunburn. There are the most gorgeous winter/spring blooms available. I got married in winter, so must be a good idea! Melanie and Peter were married in August 2017. Melanie was a super lovely Bride, with some fabulous ideas for her winter wedding florals.

Her bouquets were a combination of white ranunculus, ivory and gold/champagne roses, blushing bride, anemones, privit berry, gum and rosemary. Ah but what do you do when the black centered white anemones you ordered are not available and you receive hundreds of pale centered anemones??

You pull out the black sharpie and you paint paint and paint some more....

The dark privit berry was the perfect touch. My heart hurts that privit berry has been put on the noxious weed list and from now on we are not allowed to use it 😭. The rosemary is traditionally used as a sign of remembrance, and smells so nice.

Oh my gosh how gorgeous are these junior members of the bridal party.

Blue bridesmaid gowns are a great choice as any colour combination works well with them

The wedding reception was held at the Treasury Room at the Sydney Intercontinental. 2 sizes of vase arrangements of matching blooms adorned the tables. 

Winter weddings are great, you have lots of flower choices, most venues and vendors don’t book up as fast so you have prime choice, and you don’t sweat like crazy. So if you are engaged and haven’t decided on a date, consider the cooler months.
