Eva Longoria's Stunning Wedding Flowers.

Jeff Leatham, my favourite inspiration for floral design, was the floral stylist for Eva Longoria's 2007 wedding.

I love the way he sits the flowers at an angle at the top of the vases, I've still not managed to figure out how he does it but when I do I'll post about it. It's such an unusual way of displaying flowers and really shows off long stems like those on lilies and roses.
The couple were married in a beautiful Paris church which followed a civil ceremony at a city hall. The wedding party then travelled outside of Paris to the Ch√Ęteau de Vaux le Vicomte. Eva wore an Angel Sanchez gown.For more on Jeff Leatham visit his {website}

Real Wedding - Stephanie & Greg

Submitted by Jessie from J.Studios this wedding took my breath away with it's surreal beauty. Sometimes when you select the date for your wedding you've no idea what that day will hold. Black Saturday, a day when so many experienced such tragedy, was the day Stephanie and Greg were to be married.

A normal wedding has it's fair share of hiccups but that Greg and Stephanie managed to keep their smiles is a testament to their determination to be married. Not only did it rain ash at the ceremony, but they were told at one point they would be evacuated, temperatures were in the mid 40's and during their photos they were almost swept away by a mini rush of cyclonic winds. In a day of such sorrow, the love the couple share shone out like a rainbow in a thunderstorm. I'm so pleased to be able to share this wedding with you. Thank you Jessie from J.Studios for submitting such a touching story.
The couples intimate wedding was held at the picturesque Bulong Estate winery, in Yarra Valley, Victoria.

The wedding flowers originally planned were scorched earlier that week in the extreme heat, so a substitute had to be found. I think the "alternatives" are striking in their simplicity.

The reception tablescapes were also clean and minimal allowing the little touches to take centre stage. Little wire birds adorn the no fuss two tier cake and the table centrepieces are fresh "quiet" little vases of white lisianthus.
