February Wedding at Woodbridge Hill Hideaway


February is one of the most popular months for weddings in Tasmania, with summer being in full swing.  I am mostly booked out for February every year but with this wedding, the lovely bride was super organised.   She booked almost 2 years in advance and we had plenty of time to plan and look forward to the big day!

Woodbridge Hill Hideaway
The wedding was held at Woodbridge Hill Hideaway,  high up in the hills behind Woodbridge to the south of Hobart.  The venue has spectacular views, and on a clear day you can see for hundreds of kilometres towards the east.  


The bride was after pink, green and cream with a rustic feel.  February can be a changeable month with flowers, depending on how long the summer lingers for.  This season, I had plenty of lovely rich pinks and reds to choose from.


For the brides bouquet, a rich wine-coloured Banksia Praemorsa was the central flower.  Each bouquet had a Pink Ice Protea, some rich pinky red Banksia Occidentalis, and some gorgeous green and red Hydrangea.


I added Brunia Albiflora to each bouquet too.  It's purplish brown-grey tones were lovely peeping out from amongst all the colour.  Some newly planted green leucadendrons called Orientale were added too.  They are a great soft green with burgundy tips and tinge.  


I also added some sedum, echinacea, and hebe.  The foliage used was Risdon Peppermint and Pittosportum, with some Hebe seed heads which I love to use in bouquets.  


Such beautiful rich pinks!  

Hair comb for the bride
A fresh flower hair slide for the bride used more Hyrdrangea, Sedum, Pittosporum and Peppermint, with a Banksia Occindentalis, Brunia, Hebe and wax flower.


  Beautiful on that gorgeous dark hair.  


For table decorations, there were lots of little wooden boxed arrangements.  


Each centrepiece had a Protea Pink Ice, Brunia, Banksia Occidentalis, Silver Tree and lots of leucadendrons, foliage and texture.  


So pretty and fresh!


Larger boxed arrangements to decorate the venue had more Hyrdangea, Banksia Praemorsa, Protea Pink Ice, Banksia Occidentalis, Brunia, some dried Silver Tree cones and some summer grasses.  


I really enjoyed the colour and texture combinations in these boxed arrangements and centrepieces.


I love the dusky pink of the Banksai Praemorsa in this one.  Rustic, pink, and pretty.

Corsages for the mums.
For the mums and grandmas, there were sweet little corsages.

The men's boutonnieres
And for the men, boutonniere using Brunia and a range of foliages.

It was such a treat to be involved in the wedding of this lovely couple.  I wish them all the best for their future together.
