Sculptural Florals.

A few frames that stopped us in a heartbeat, created by wedding by flower favorites Prunella. Captured by Beck Rocchi in The George Ballroom we love the wild romance and rambling beauty of each sculptural arrangement, where blooms in fuchsia and magenta entwine around vines as they climb up arbors and cascade to the floor.

Prunella’s top tip for wedding florals? Curation. "While Pinterest and Instagram are fantastic tools for generating ideas and becoming inspired, don’t try and cram every concept you like into your day.  Edit your ideas and let your chosen team make suggestions on how you can create the most individual, cohesive, stylish affair possible."

Fragrant Moments.

Can we speak in flowers.
It will be easier for me to understand.
– Nayyirah Waheed

The finest floristry extends beyond shape and form. It’s a language. An expression of fragrance, color and movement. Every tendril and vine weaves a story of its maker and its buyer, a collaboration of nature, style and aesthetic persuasion.

The latest creations by Rose Apple Flowers speak to warm days and languid nights. Soft blooms in porcelain hues, paired with the pastel skies and iridescent waters that typify Australia’s east coast. Scrolling through their latest real weddings, we’re drawn to their rambling bouquets and organically formed arrangements, creations that drape over hands and wind around trees. With a nostalgic nod to overgrown paths and wild, unkempt fields, think bundles of David Austin roses and ivory peonies, sprigs of jasmine bound by swathes of gauze and ribbons of linen.

Each arrangement weaves stories of budding love and serendipitous romance, of days spent absentmindedly picking at petals: he loves me, he loves me not…

Slow Flowers.

As we look to floral trends, we find ourselves drawn to fluid installations and loose arrangements; bunches of blooms that appear freshly foraged, stems nonchalantly picked and effortlessly bundled. We dream of casual strolls through farms and fields, wildflowers found in hidden lanes, and roses that climb and wind over backyard fences.  

In reality, the blooms we all love often must be internationally sourced. Their life begins amidst chemicals and preservatives, before being flown hundreds or thousands of miles to a new destination. These are flowers bred for demand with affordability and longevity taking precedence over fragrance and structure.

And yet, the tides are changing. Across the industry, growers, suppliers and consumers are demanding a return to simplicity, sustainability, and floristry unfiltered.

This beautiful revolution continues to unfold this weekend in the hills of Tuscany. An abandoned Chianti structure will play host to some of Italy’s leading florists, its ageing walls transformed with wild florals in rambling sculptures. Photographed by LANE handpicked photographer Lelia Scarfiotti, Slow Flowers is a celebration of the local, and an ode to sustainability and community.

Using recovered blooms and excess cuttings, florists and guests will create their pieces, showcasing the inherent beauty in local produce and unexpected pairings.

See more of Lelia’s photography here or find out more about Slow Flowers on their website. For full coverage of the event, stay tuned, we’ll be bringing you images of our favorite creations in the coming days…

Inversion

Over the years we've come across more than just a few florists who can source stunning florals and put them together in a beautiful way. In fact alot of the time, as long as the flowers are of beautiful quality, fresh, and unique, the job can almost do itself. Then there are the ones we are forever searching out. The artists. The ones who can take something as flawless as a flower and elevate it to art. The ones who make you feel, who engage your senses, offering a different perspective, a connection, a new plane of thought or a new engagement in the moment. Flowers can do that.

Perth based florist Scape by S curates the kind of flowers that make you fall silent. With a thoroughly unrestrained approach (think installations of gold painted flowers and inverted blooms!), a shunning of reality, and a luxurious, high art eye, her floristry is nothing short of exhilarating to behold.

Inspired Installations

There are few more gasp-worthy styling elements to a wedding than a floral installation or suspended arrangement. Taking the hypnotic beauty and rawness of florals and reimagining them through scale and design, a space is completely transformed and an ambience channelled. Whether distracting from a less than ideal ceiling or wall, or bringing a room together into a focal point there’s a lot to love about this discipline of floral artistry.

Inspired by the high flying foliage skills of Melbourne based florist collective Pomp & Splendour, for their endlessly unique creative perspective. From cascading waterfalls of florals, ceilings of greenery, and ornate foliage arches, they take all your pinterest dreams and turn them into wedding day reality.

Highlights This Week

This week we’re dreaming a song of fire and ice with Sydney based jewellery co elvis et moi, and headpiece queen Viktoria Novak (above).

While Melbourne based florist The Flower Dispensary has our focus firmly fixed on their ornate floral arch, and Sydney based celebrant Thomas J Lahoud gave us his no nonsense advice to making your ceremony all your own.

Sydney based fine jeweller Grew & Co continued the royal theme with this stunning setting (above), and Melbourne based make-up artist Jessica Whitelock took us back to a stunning dawn spent with Samara Weaving on the glistening shores of Byron Bay (below).

We’re reminded of the luxury of the present moment with the rare laces and silks of Aimee-Cherie Intimates and the opulent onyx candles of Cocolux Australia.

And finally, we’re dreaming of summer escapes and seaside soirees on Sydney’s northern beaches at the picturesque Jonahs, where not so long ago we created this oceanic tablescape for the most well-shod online influencers in Australia for the Samsung Summer Soiree.
