I’m back within a week - WHAT? - to share with you a few things I’ve learn over time on making floral arrangements, specifically bouquets, a little more visually light, airy & oh so dreamy!
You can also use these tips on any arrangement really, especially for floral centrepieces, and focal florals.
Last week we had the honour of being asked to create fresh floral leis/garlands to be gifted to the Duke & Duchess of Sussex by the guys behind the wonderful mental health awareness organisation One Wave
After hearing the exciting announcement that Prince Harry & Meghan Markle were expecting a baby next year, I couldn’t help myself but to create a sweet baby lei for the new royal!
(Meghan carrying this in may of the images captured that day).
We also created 20 floral crowns in bright colours and foliages along with another 18 leis for the lucky members of One Wave to wear for the occasion.

We are so happy and excited to have been involved in such an awesome day for mental health awareness and to have royalty adorned in our work, strolling along the famous landmark and beautiful beach of Bondi.
The leis were threaded using local and imported carnations, local ranunculus in bright tangerine, pinks and peachy tones & a whole bunch of varieties of spray carnations - all very much absolute favourites to work with here at Oh Flora.
Here are a few captures from this wondering day!
This time next month this gorgeous couple will be celebrating their first year anniversary!
My team & I were fortunate enough to flower up Katie & Matt’s wedding in the Southern Highlands over two beautiful days of installation. The venue was a family friends private property with the perfect countryside backdrop for Katie & Matt’s ceremony & a clear marquee for dinner and dancing by White Top Venues.
I loved working with Katie & her Mum on all things floral, tablescapes & styling leading up to this glorious Spring affair. Its always a dream to work with clients that really appreciate and care about all the details coming to life to reflect their style.
Here are some of the dreamy captures by Sophie Thompson Photography.
Katies bouquet was arranged using:
White foxglove, scabiosa, Julia roses, blush ruffled double tulips, chocolate cosmos, rice flower and foliages of nandina, geranium & honeysuckle.
I always encouraged my couples to take a little time between portraits and their reception to take in their dinner, dancing and party space with no guests around. They have put so much time, thought and love (and money!) into such a meaningful celebration & I think its important to take a moment to breathe it all, to experience what theirs guest will experience as they walk into the venue - so special!
