Sundrenched March Wedding at Port Arthur

Photography by Fred and Hannah
On a beautiful warm Tuesday in March, this lovely couple tied the knot at Port Arthur Historic Site on the Tasman Peninsula.  The world heritage listed site is a really special place for a wedding.  The ceremony was held in the ruins of the old church and then photographs were taken in the wonderful gardens that cover the site.

Photography by Fred and Hannah really captures the day so fabulously!  That golden sun drenched glow perfectly highlights the playful yellow touches that the couple chose for their day.

I made the bride a simple bouquet with plenty of lush foliage and texture.


Main flowers used were Protea Pink Ice, and Brunia Albiflora in flower.  A Leucadendron Silver Tree cone peeps through in the centre of the bouquet, surrounded by a fine-flowered white hydrangea.  


The small touches of red are the variegated Leucadendron Jester.  Yellow touches were added with Leucadenron Inca Gold,  Leucadendron Pisa and a fine leafed hybrid Leucadendron.  Eucalyptus Risdonii,  a lovely lemon scented Leptospermum, and a blue green cyprus are the foliages used.  For some added texture I used some pittosporum berries which are a great creamy colour and for a finishing touch, some gum nuts from Corymbia Ficifolia.

The grooms boutonniere combined all of the foliages with the yellow Leucadendrons and a gum nut as the focal point.  I love it with that yellow tie!


Fresh and Australian!

The lovely bride wanted a floral crown to match her bouquet.  


I used more of the Eucalyptus Risdonii, and wove in some of the flowering Tea Tree.  The fine leafed yellow Leucadendron added warm touches.  I also added some of the Leucadendron Pisa to the front of the crown.  


You can also see some deconstructed Brunia and some flowering gum woven into the crown.

The amazing photography by Fred and Hannah captured the day so well.  The golden glow of the early autumn light was just magic.

It was, as always, a pleasure to be involved!

  1. I was really worried and shed lots of tears during the week of my wedding. But walking into that hall was such an amazing moment. I would suggest these wedding venues for any event of under 100 people where you want an elegant atmosphere for a very reasonable price.

  2. Beats the pants off of those other run of the mill florists. An actual person responded by phone and email when I inquired about a last minute day-of order and Flower Delivery New York. It was a wonderful experience I had with them.
