Daring Dahlias

Dahlias are such a showy flower and the colours they come in are nothing short of stunning. Perfect for a modern , fun or tropical wedding. Originating in the mountain ranges of Mexico, Guatemala and Columbia (imagine their bright blooms wildly growing on mountains .. how beautiful) before they were discovered by the rest of the world, they are now grown prolifically in warmer climates. They are in season in Australia throught summer and autumn, but are very hard to get a hold of as a cut flower as they are grown mostly by cottage farmers and so you will only find they are available for one week every year.
Dahlias can grow from a little ball shape to the size of a dinner plate. Use Pom Pom Dahlias for a very interesting element in your arrangements or for cute button holes as seen below.

Real Weddings - Carley and Troy Jeffery

Following our celebration of Australia "week", I decided to select from our Real Wedding submissions a wedding I felt really captured the modern Australian wedding. The wedding of Troy and Carley Jeffery is a modern twist on rustic and set in a vineyard in Western Australia.

The ceremony was held under a backdrop of stunning jacaranda trees casting dappled shade over the couple as they exchanged vows. I'm a big fan of jacaranda trees so I love this!

Carley wore a gorgeous one shoulder gown from Zansis and carried a hand tied bouquet of peonies. Gifts for the bridesmaids were from Pandora Jewellery.

The photos in the sunburnt field are fantastic; I just adore the photo of Carley and Troy walking in the field with the bright blue sky above and the yellow grass below.

The reception decor is modern and elegant with a black and white colour scheme which really set off the natural surrounds of the vineyard along with a stunning ocean view. Simple displays of white peonies in round glass vases sat on black table runners on long rectangular tables in a room filled with natural light.

Thank you Carley and Troy for sharing your wedding with us.
