A Wedding in the Park

These bouquets were a delight to make. The bride wanted bouquets that provided a sensual experience: texture, colour and scent.  Delicate rose petals with soft lamb’s ears foliage and seasonal seedheads, all in shades of pink and beige-plum.  Elegant, romantic and understated for a wedding in the park.  Autumn hydrangeas from the Adelaide hills provided the perfect colour-link to the mushroom plum of the bridesmaid’s dress. Hyacinths mingled throughout the bouquets so that their soft scent carried on the breeze in the afternoon sunshine; I hope that every time the bride smells hyacinths she will be carried back to her wedding day. Romantic bliss.
