February Wedding at Stewarts Bay Lodge

Island 26 Photography
"I love all foliages"  said the bride.  Great for a wedding at Stewarts Bay Lodge, set in the bush right next to Stewarts Bay on the Tasman Peninsula, a gorgeous natural setting!


The lovely bride was after pinks and softer tones to compliment the "nude" colouring of the bridesmaids dresses.  Protea Compacta, Protea White Ice and Protea Pink Ice were the main flowers used.  Secondary flowers were Banksia Marginata, a local native in soft creamy lemon, Brunia Albiflora and some rich pink Corymbia Ficifolia or Flowering Gum.  More difficult to see is Leucadendron Pisa with its silvery cones, Poppy pods, and some soft pink wax flower.


Foliages used include Myrtle Beech, a native Tasmanian foliage, 2 different types of Eucalyptus, one in bud.  Native, locally growing coral fern is also used.  Beautiful Leucadendron Silver Tree foliage is also used, giving shiny highlights.  There is also some Eucalyptus Crenulata, a blue foliage with a slight purple tinge to the tips.

Big cascading bouquets full of foliage can be tricky to package for transport!

The colours worked well with the bridesmaids dresses.

I love candid wedding shots! They really show the emotion of the day.  


For the boutonnieres I used the native coral fern, wax flowers, some deconstructed Brunia and for the groom, some of the pink flowering gum.

The boutonniere for the Father of the Bride was slightly different using a poppy pod, myrtle, gum and flowering gum.


The floral comb for the bride used similar ingredients - native coral fern, wax flower, flowering gum, deconstructed bruina, Eucalyptus Crenulata, and some eucalyptus buds.


Wax flower is such a popular filler flower and you can see why in this hair piece.  It is so delicate but it also lasts well.

I love making hair pieces and its always wonderful to be able to see how they're used.

This one sat so well into the hairstyle.

The combination of a great hair stylist  (Ben O'Brien) and a great photographer (Island 26 Photography) gives great results!  Its such a privilege to work with talented people.  The beautiful bride looked amazing!


Simple aisle decorations were the only ceremony flowers - a simple mix of foliages and leucadendrons.

Table decorations included rustic log rounds with a trio of vases filled with proteas, foliage and flowering gum.

Twisted willow gave the centrepieces a lift.

Its always a pleasure to be involved in a couple's big day, especially when there are so many other great providers to work alongside.  This beautiful shot of the lovely bride just goes to show the results that can be achieved when you have great people to work with.
