Like fashion, floral trends change with each new season. We witnessed a surge of deep berry hued blooms for winter and spring typically calls for an influx of delicate pastel petals. One thing is for certain, “everyone is obsessed with flowers at the moment,” Daniel from boutique flower wall company, White Luxe says. “Floral is a trend in itself, brides really want to give their guests a good experience. Dressing up the room and having the wow factor is so important. . . when you walk in to that room, it’s all about that jaw-dropping styling.”
We couldn’t agree more. Nothing turns heads, transforms spaces or makes a bigger impact than a verdant array of freshly picked peonies or hydrangeas. As spring and the Australian wedding season approaches us again, we’re reconsidering traditional flower arrangements to bring you multiple, sensory floral experiences.
While you’re busy thinking of ways to garnish your nuptial roast dinner with rosemary or adding a hint of mint to your signature reception cocktail, we encourage you to think about incorporating herbs in to your matrimonial botanicals too. From the pretty textured fronds to the inviting perfume, parsley flowers, sage and time make beautiful foliage additions with a difference.
Beautiful blooms are no longer restricted to our banquet tables and bouquets, flowers are now also on our walls. Family run business White Luxe have perforated the niche market in Melbourne with their opulent Green with Envy silk flower wall. “My sister was getting married towards the end of the last year and we wanted to try and do something really different. We wanted something a little bit fun for her wedding, something to take photos in front of and that’s how White Luxe started,” Giulia says. Impelled by the hype surrounding by Kim Kardashian’s nuptial floor-to-ceiling white flower backdrop, White Luxe have continued to bring exposure to the trend, designing glamorous floral features for various style bloggers and social media mavens.
Enthralled by woodlands and nature’s frailty we look to natural foraged blooms for table décor and bouquet inspiration. A combination of exposed stems, blenched branches, vines and green foliage account for a ‘just picked out of the garden’ aesthetic. Wedding bouquets have come undone, quite literally and tightly wound arrangements in uniform colour and species are becoming beautifully nonchalant and unstructured. We love nothing more than a beautiful, bold arbor decorated in native Australian blooms.
Hanging birch foliage, magnolia chandeliers and suspended hybrid tea roses en masse are among our favourite hovering blooms. So raw and beautifully animated, a ceiling decorated with sprawling greenery above a crisp ceramic table scape can define the colour story of your entire event. Inspired by the whimsicality of a secret garden in full blossom, we can’t go passed an amalgamation of romantic hued garlands free falling overhead to create an intimate ceiling panorama.
