February Wedding at Battery Point Community Hall

This February, I had the pleasure of providing flowers for a gorgeous Hobart wedding.  The ceremony was held at the Battery Point Community Hall - an intimate venue with wonderful natural light.   Talented Tasmanian photographer, Nina Hamilton, captured the day.  

The bride loved burgundy, and with neutral coloured bridesmaid's dresses the contrast with the rich burgundy tones worked really well.  

Rich maroon smoke bush foliage, Leucadendron Safari Sunset and the finer leafed Leucadendron Tall Red were the main burgundy ingredients, with a small amount of dark Leptospermum foliage also added.  

Eucalyptus Crenulata is a gorgeous gum foliage that has a silvery bloom , as well as a purple tinge on its new growth.  It was perfect as an addition to the bouquets to add some subtle highlights.

Each bouquet also included rich red Banksia Occidentalis, silvery grey Brunia Albiflora, Protea Pink Ice, and rich orange Leucospermum Cordifolium.  

The men wore simple leafy boutonnieres with an emphasis on the burgundy.  

The groom's boutonniere had a smallish green gumnut with the burgundy foliages and some Eucalyptus Crenulata. 

Battery Point Community Hall is a great central venue.  The arch, signing table and seating were provided by Style-My-Day.  Nina was great to work with and has lots of experience making Hobart weddings look amazing.

For the arch, I used more Leucadendron Tall Red, burgundy Leptospermum, Eucalyptus Crenulata and Smoke Bush.  I added some rich black Elderberries for depth and Brunia for texture.  Then, more orange pincushions, some red pincusions, and more Banksia Occidentalis.  

The rustic signing table was decorated with a collection of jars.  

At the reception venue, there were lots of little jars of colour.

The reception was held at Coal Valley Cider.  

More pincushions, Brunia, Protea and burgundy Leucos with some more Elderberries and gum foliage.  

Lots of the colour pots were made with handles for hanging around the relaxed venue.  

They really brightened things up, and carried on the theme of the wedding.  

The colours really glowed.  

I really loved working with the moody, rich colours for this wedding.

And of course, seeing the bride and her girls looking so amazing and relaxed was great too.  Love my job!
