Of all the beautiful things to love about weddings, flowers come pretty close to topping our list. This year saw the rise of the unstructured bouquet, and ‘cascading’ is happily no longer a dirty word. Local, seasonal blooms were the order of the day, with foraged wildflowers and rambling foliage featuring regularly.
When it comes to bouquets, we’ve shared some real beauties this year. It wasn’t easy to select a blog-friendly number, but we’ve done our best – our favourite bouquets of 2014…
With its bright billy buttons, smiling dahlias and magenta roses, this vibrant creation by The Sisters is sheer joy to wrap your eyes around! Kate and Joost’s seaside wedding by Nina Claire is every bit as gorgeous as this bouquet.
Cecilia Fox’s unique take on floristry is an endless inspiration. We love Vanessa’s rambling foliage-strong bouquet, with its jasmine tendrils and delicate white blooms. Her modern Melbourne wedding was captured by I Got You Babe.
King Proteas have seriously represented this year, and why not? They’re incredible! Adorned with wild grasses and emu feathers, this organic creation was the perfect bohemian bouquet for Lou & Steve’s Moroccan festival wedding, captured by Luke Going Photography.
Unstructured, organic and just plain lovely, these DIY bouquets were lovingly created by the bride and her maids, and we think they nailed it. This DIY barn wedding was captured by New Zealand’s Danelle Bohane.
We love the simplicity of this king protea bouquet by Sinikka, snapped by Jonas Peterson. Adorned with eucaluptus and and gum nuts, it’s the ultimate Australian native hat-trick and a beautiful addition to this vintage homestead wedding.
Edible ornamentals in bouquets are, quite simply, the bee’s knees. This combination of blush blooms, native foliage and autumnal pomegranate is pure perfection – hat’s off to Poppy’s Flowers! This King’s Park wedding was captured by Anna Rose Photography.
We don’t see many orchids on Nouba, but this divine bouquet by Cecilia Fox has us hoping for a comeback. Be sure to check out this Substation wedding for more seriously beautiful floral creations. Photography by Jonathan Ong.
With their organic creations gracing many a feature, Melbourne’s Pomp & Splendour is a firm favourite on Nouba. We love this explosion of fluffy peonies and rambling Jasmine from Ellie & Ollie’s Pope Joan Wedding, beautifully captured by Lucy Spartalis.
Trailing amaranthus with hot pink berries and blooms – a seriously stunning bouquet by Sydney florist, Justine Rose. Check out this relaxed town hall wedding by And A Day Photography for a whole lot more colour.
When floral designer Aleksandra tied the knot, she decided against creating her own flowers, entrusting the role to Sydney’s Mr Cook. And boy did he deliver! The Palm Beach wedding was a veritable celebration of tropical blooms and we love this bouquet of lotus, tuberose and orchids, captured by Tealily Photography.
Kate commissioned local florist Prunella to create this beautiful blush bouquet for her intimate Kyneton wedding. We love the fusion of classic flowers and asymmetric contemporary styling, perfectly captured by Farrah Allan Photography.
For straight-up, hot pink gorgeousness, this vibrant bouquet by Elyssium Blooms is pure eye candy. Carly & Aaron’s retro rockabilly wedding was packed with bright blooms and was captured by Dan O’Day.
