Abigail & Ben

Australia and New Zealand

Abigail’s bouquet was created around the idea of combining elements from both her and Ben’s home countries

The bridal bouquet centred around a focal red banksia with accents of red kangaroo paw, leucadendron, alpine daisy, fern, gorgeous peonies and purple sweet peas to compliment the bridesmaid gowns. Handmade wire fern curls were also incorporated both into the bouquets and the buttonholes and corsages as a reference to New Zealand. The bridesmaid bouquets were a fresh white and green mix including alpine daisy, lissianthus, green trick carnations and fern.

The reception, held at the Thredbo Alpine Hotel was elegant and simple with large glass fishbowl vases of purple orchids and leather fern surrounding a pillar candle..
