After numerous requests we've finally added a #garland to our rental collection! This pretty number is 6 feet long & is comprised of synthetic silver dollar greens & seeded eucalyptus. It would look so great on our birch arbor or along a large chalkboard sign. Drop us a line at email@example.com if you would like to rent!
I still can’t quite believe that I get to attend people’s weddings and try my heart out to capture the days beautiful moments - then package it all up tightly into a pretty little box and hand it over.
I’ve sort of found myself catapulted into this field and am pinching myself constantly. When I’m not having mini nervous breakdowns about screwing it all up.
I found myself telling Josh recently that I’m not sure I can keep doing this. I've poured my heart into the day and struggle distancing myself. I’ve cried harder than guests at beautiful, personal vowels, hugs with grandparents or exchanges of loving looks. I’m laughing and clapping along with the speeches and at the end of the day find myself sad to say goodbye to my new friends who I’ve shared this emotional rollercoaster with. It’s so hard and exhausting and something I’m still trying to navigate and get better at. It has been the biggest privilege to be allowed to do this and am so looking forward to the year ahead as I get to capture more of those days here in Melbourne, around Australia and even internationally (!!!). I feel so new to this I’m scared I’m going to be found out any day now but am taking this emotional heart of mine and will continue to immerse it as deeply and thoroughly as I possibly can. Perhaps exhausting, but these emotional rollercoasters are really the best.
The last few years have been incredible on many levels. Incredibly rewarding. Incredibly challenging. Incredibly inspiring. -
If these gorgeous smiling faces of my lovely couples offer any insight, it's how joyful your wedding day can be. I've seen, I've heard from you, and I experienced it myself as a bride, that not every moment of the planning process is always filled with such joy.
You're not just planning a major event (one of the top 5 most stressful jobs, by the by!). You're also experience a shift. A shift in your family status. A shift into an official new family unit. A shift into the next phase of your lives together. -
I too am shifting into a new phase. Working with my couples 1:1 has been amazing. Yet you, reading this post, missed out. You missed out because of the old school version of how you get to work with a wedding planning. -
Not any more. I don't want you to miss out. I want you to have the most joyful experience too. So I'm breaking down the ways we usually do things, and offering you access to my wedding planning expertise right here, online, ready to download. -
You can get your first taste via the link in profile.
Because I believe if you are better informed and better prepared you'll have a more joyful wedding planning experience. And more joy in the world is a good thing. -
Thanks for the photos <3

I've never seen anything like it! No joke there are 20 flowers on the one stem!!! These were grown from heirloom seeds gifted when I stopped at someone's house to admire their garden...sorry Bunnings by your genetically modified seeds just don't cut it! 🌻 We are lucky to have @sustainableeducation speaking at the #ethicalweddingfair for us on 7 May to shed some light on the behind the scenes of floristry and providing #growyourown inspiration! It's going to be an amazing day for both couples and wedding industry folk alike. Hope you can make it! 🌿For tickets follow bio link. 🌿#grownnotflown#locallygrown#savethebees
