Best of 2015: Bouquets

Words by Tamarin Morley
December 22, 2015

Pop the prosecco, it’s that time of year again! We’re winding down for the holidays and looking back at the best bits of 2015. To kick things off, we’re ooh-ing and ahh-ing over this year’s most beautiful bouquets.

We’ve loved this year’s floral trends and reckon Aussie florists are true pioneers in experimenting with the unexpected and pushing those botanic boundaries. Organic, unstructured creations have reigned supreme this year and we love seeing so many native, local and seasonal flowers in the mix.

With so many amazing creations, it was no mean feat to select a bloggable few. But here goes! Our favourite bouquets of 2015…

Jam packed with gorgeous native flowers and foliage, we couldn’t go past this beauty by Merrin Grace Floral Design from this Central Coast wedding, captured by Bear Deer Fox.

An entirely flower-free wedding might pose a challenge to some florists, but not Beautiflora! The Byron Bay botanic studio created this unique green bouquet of lotus pods, asclepias pods, succulents, and tropical greenery for this tipi wedding, captured by John Benavente.
