It was a beautiful summers day, perfect for a beach ceremony in Little Cove, Cabarita NSW. The bride looked radiant in a lace wedding gown. Our F&M bride had to have been the most chilled and carefree bride ever. She was a pleasure to work with and I was so excited when she told us that she wanted native bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids. We used two king protea as features for the bridal bouquet and complemented them with roses and gum.
Local peony season is here and with so much beauty. This spectacular flower starts off as a tight glossy ball and opens into the most light and ruffled bloom. The season runs from late spring into early summer.
When we start seeing these little beauties at the flower market we know that spring is on its way. We get so excited and can't help using them in as many posy of the days as we can. This rose of spring sure knows how to make a statement.
The name blushing bride came from a beautifully romantic folklore story. The story goes that a man would pick the flower and place it in the lapel of his jacket, on the way to propose to the love of his life. The gesture would make the lovely bride to be blush. Hence the name.
