Choosing Your Wedding Flowers, with Alstonville FloristJun 13

Alstonville Florist

As professional florists, we understand the process brides go through when selecting their wedding flowers, and that it can often feel like an overwhelming or daunting process.

We also understand that every wedding is truly unique, and for us, having the opportunity to create bespoke floral styling for each of our couples is an amazing privilege.

Should you follow the current trends, or stick with something more classic?

Our best advice when it comes to choosing your flowers is to select blooms that reflect the personality and character of you and your partner, to really enhance the day you dream of.


When it came to creating a classic look, Liz and Mark achieved this flawlessly.

Fresh white and green botanicals bring a timeless quality when worked together, and this, teamed with the amazing backdrop of Horizon, Byron Bay, was exactly the look this couple wanted for their special day.

You could just feel the love with this beautiful couple. Everything about this wedding, especially the floral styling, added to the romance of their day.

The delicious colour palette of rich reds and burgundy, pastels and blush pink, featured statement blooms like king proteas, figs, dahlias, pepper berries and dripping pieces of hanging amaranthus.

When Brendan and Ash came to us for their florals, they had a clear concept for their day; A romantic rustic styled wedding!

They had a colour palette in mind and a few selected blooms, but the details of the floral designs were left entirely to us.

Coming across old ladders in the family shed, Brendan and Ash were inspired to incorporate these into their ceremony, and from this, we created a stunning arbour laden with flowers and foliages in all shades of green. Against the lush gardens of the Ewingsdale Hall, this set the stage for their tear-inducing vows.

Ash walked down the aisle carrying a loose unstructured posy of whites and greens and this look carried through to the reception, where mixed bunches filled vintage jars and ran down the centre of long banquet tables where family and friends sat.

But the real floral statement of the day was the installation that hung above the bridal table. Palm fronds, gum, and other lush foliages formed a chandelier of green that added the finishing touch to a beautiful day.

Romance, fresh summer vibes, family, and friends; each couple has their own story to tell and we are always honoured to convey this through flowers, making every wedding a unique celebration.
