Oh what a beautiful (and ecocentric) wedding!

Yesterday was one of the happiest days of my life, celebrating the wedding of my best friend. Set on the family property the Hunter Region in NSW, the ceremony was set in a clearing in the bush, by a dam dotted with water lilies. 

The marquee was a great opportunity to try my hand at a new kind of design. Debbie and I had collected hoards of silverware from Parramatta Op shops during the year for the table centrepieces , and had the flowers ordered from a local wholesaler. 

Debbie had wanted a really natural effect with the decorating, with lots of greenery. For the bridal table, I found some large branches in the bush, and arranged them on the front of the table. I then worked candles throughout the branches, and then pulled fresh Star  Jasmine off the pool fence and decorated the front of the table. 

I really enjoyed working with new materials, such a Dodder Vine, a fine climber which I used wrapped around vases and candles, and in the bouquet ( photo's of it to come soon). It can even be tied into bows which I love. Anyone that knows me, or follows this blog would know I have an obsession with twine, and this vine is the perfect living twine!

Thanks Debbie for letting me help you, It was amazing fun, and has inspired a love of a new kind of design. I will also never forget raiding a Jacaranda tree's flowers with the hazard lights on, on the side of the F1 freeway!

Love and happiness to the newlyweds xo
