'Hiring Jess was one of the BEST decisions I have made in this whole wedding planning process, hands down.Being from outside of the country, I was grateful that she was always on top of things and super responsive. When I got to visit Australia, she really sat me down for a 3-hour long meeting, and was super thorough, because she knew that I was anxious and worried for not physically being in the country because it was a destination wedding. When everything felt so out of reach, she made sure she reached out to every vendor for me. She made sure I was feeling good about things, and would go above and beyond to make sure I literally “don’t panic". All of my guests were raving about how carefully, thoughtfully and uniquely planned my wedding was.'

This  was a special wedding for me as I had the pleasure of planning, styling and flowering for the whole wedding. Robynn and Jon wanted a natural, effortless vibe but also to reflect their playful  sides. The colour palette was soft grey, greens and creamy whites with some  warm wood tones. The ceremony backdrop was one of my biggest and was full with palms and flowers and my forages spinifex.

I used loads and loads of fresh and dried foliages, locally grown hydrangea and garden roses, and hand cut the silk ribbons on the bouquets. I dyed my silk runners a soft grey and we placed  lots of little budvases down the long shared tables.
More foliage was strung overhead with generous foliage garlands hung  across the central table.
