What an amazing day… ‘buzzing’ with the energy of creation. Everyone has just landed at the venue with all their bibs and bobs, bubbling and bursting with excitement and itching to put all our goodies together like a jigsaw puzzle to come out with something truly awe-inspiring for brides to be (and other creatives).

Given the fact that the stunning Fins Plantation House is set on the edge of Tropical Fruit world, my vision was to introduce all of ‘that’ into the theme. These brilliant colour tones and hard-edged shapes, vibrancy, greens, flowery, decadent and edible!

The bouquet consists of rich, passionate tones, with more of an eccentric overtone. I wanted to give it an edgy look, something to sit comfortably next to the amazing George Wu black gown and our model’s gorgeous face. A splash of deep dark red tones, some gnarly twisted vines, lashings of greenery, texture and an offset composition for a theatrical dramatic feeling which made my heart sing. The bouquet is casually freaking fabulous, sitting at ease against such strong components.

Next up, we have the table and the install… I came along with my own set of buckets filled with bright and brilliant tropicals and reds. But then… Tropical Fruit World gave me a golf buggy and a nice strong man and (quote) said: “Go for it”.

They set me free and I squealed with joy all the way around those grounds (literally squealed and giggled) in the end we did around 4-5 buggy loads. My assistant and I then took the nice clean polished Fins Plantation House floor and made an absolute FLOWER BOMB!

After hours of building the bomb, we left and the magic started to trickle through. The suspended installs were hoisted up by AVideas, they are the amazing at what they do and amazing people to work with. The install easily absorbed 2 FULL bunches of bananas with ease and a few Jackfruit as big as a full grown wombat. Hanging crabs claws, orchids. greenery, oh and lashings and lashings and more lashings of greenery!

The table was a decadent feast of tropical fruit and flowers running over 5 meters, set with a 30cm wide ‘garland’ of fruit. Oh my, it looked good enough to eat (oh wait, it was edible! Winner winner chicken dinner, or should I say tropical dinner? Boom-Tish!)

Mangoes, dragonfruits, jackfruit, lychees, starfruit, bananas, sapote, pineapples….the list goes on and on…

After all of this, we were done! BOOM yes! It was only 10.30pm. Our creativity was still brimming, however, our poor little feet weren’t so much brimming with excitement.

This is when my avant-garde piece fell out of my soul. That broken bit of my soul that I love so much, that bit my artist is nestled in.

We took our gorgeous model, switched her out of George Wu and into When Freddie Met Lily. Velvet Green, dark moody lighting.

Set against a Lindqvist Ink original canvas, purposely painted for this moment (so spoilt)…

What can I say… blood Red dragon fruit, roses and anything else that hit my hand and during into it.

With a massive Thank you to Emily K MUA and my assistant for really giving it one big last push to make this piece come to life.

And of course to the lovely and talented Tennille Fink Photography for capturing it all.

Forget Me Not

Forget Me Not Weddings is the ultimate country destination situated in the Byron Bay hinterland, 10 minutes from Byron Bay and 5 minutes to boutique Bangalow.

On a scenic hundred acre working cattle farm, it is very private and tranquil. Overlooking a large lake with water lilies and a little row boat beside an old wooden jetty. Surrounded by prizewinning gardens and rainforest plantings. Turn a corner and find another secret spot, relax and listen to the running water of the natural little waterfalls amongst the rainforest.

Choices of ceremony spots, maybe overlooking the water or under the shade of the trees perhaps in front of the private outdoor chapel?

There is a large level grassed area to have your tipi’s or marquee. The site can comfortably accommodate 300 guests. A toilet block with rustic exterior and 5 star interior is provided. The farm with cattle, horses and the post and rail fence in the background frames the tipi’s which overlook the gardens and water, such a gorgeous view. As night falls, the atmosphere changes with all the lights reflecting onto the water. A magical place.

For the smaller wedding there is an undercover deck beside the homestead pool. This caters for about 36 seated or 50 standing guests and is a spectacular setting for canapés.

Our accommodation is an ideal place for your wedding party to get ready. It is also a special place to relax, reflect and enjoy after your special day. Beautifully furnished with period pieces. Air-conditioned bedroom with a comfortable iron bed. The accommodation includes an amazing western-styled saloon bar with billiards table, pinball machine and arcade system. Contains a separate bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. There is a swimming pool, undercover deck and BBQ area, even an outdoor fire pit to keep the night warm and cosy. Sleeps 2-4 with one queen size bed and an extra double bed if required.

Forget Me Not Farm is a truly beautiful country location and is both private and spectacular. This is the ideal place for your destination wedding.

I would love to be able to share it for your special day.
