Girls are pretty. Wearing beautiful dresses and holding amazing flowers. So two girls is just double pretty! Bree and Breeza wanted different bouquets that still matched. Close up you can tell the difference but there were still common flowers that brought them together.

Breeza’s Bouquet – Disbuds, David Austin roses, stocks and lisianthis with dusty miller and variegated pittosporum foliage

A mix of pink and texture came together to make something really pretty and whimsy. This shoot wasnt plannned. It was one of my “hey Rene, I’ve got awesome flowers here, lets do a photoshoot” ideas. Luckily we have some awesome mates in the industry that can help pull together something amazing with very little notice.

Peonies, more peonies, and then some more peonies! It was so beautiful. Alannah was an awesome bride, one of those brides you’re sad to see get married and not need you anymore! And one of the very few weddings I get to see happen and even get a snap with the bride.


Bride – Mostly white with some pale pink peonies

Bridesmaids – pale pink and deep pink peonies.

Table Centres – square vases with peonies and a silver glitter table number.

Perfect Posy

A round tightly tied collection of blooms with minimal visible foliage, or foliage which is kept in line with the flowers. These bouquets are normally more expensive because of the large number of blooms required. And all rose bouquet would fall into this category, as well as mixed blooms tied in a dome shape.

Textually Round

Still keeping a bit of structure to your blooms these bouquets need foliage and different shapes and textures to give it that slightly wild look while still keeping to a round-ish shape. These bouquets can vary in cost a lot depending on how much foliage and which blooms you would like. Being less specific with flower types can make this more affordable.

Unstructured & Wild

Usually on the bigger side these bouquets mix a lot of foliage, with wild fillers and mixed blooms. The shape isn’t always round, oval seems to be best shape for ease of holding. Commonly called unstructured, wild, imperfect, messy. The size and flower types make a huge impact to the price of these bouquets.
