october wedding

I had the opportunity recently to create some arrangements and bouquets for the wedding of a super lovely couple Lani and Dave who got married in October. They gave me a lot of creative freedom and encouragement for which I am very grateful.

Huge thanks to photographer and designer Natalija Brunovs for these beautiful pictures. Check out her great blog www.natalija.com.au and website www.seedpod.com.au

I've been playing with the idea of layering images from drawings and photos, these have been kept pretty simple which I like.

As a kid I loved decorating the house at Christmas - we had a big chest full of decorations. Red paper lanterns, garlands and lots of homemade fabric and wooden decorations. Last year I made little Christmas spiders to put a tree of Melaleuca brances. This years tree is a bunch of sticks with succulents and bits and bobs attached.

I am always on the hunt for interesting vases and vessels for flowers. I need to frequent Op shops and garage sales more to start getting a decent collection.
