Bridal Bouquet

Use lush greenery to create a unique and modern bridal bouquet. This time allow ‘fillers’ to take centre stage and become the star of your bouquet. Create a dramatic bouquet using large tropical leaves like fan palms, monstera and rubber fig leaves alongside Protea flowers mixed with orchids.

Choose Royal Fern with Plumeria or Rubber Fig Leaf with a single orchid to create a more delicate and refined look, this is gorgeous for bridesmaids bouquets also! For the Groom a little greenery with an orchid is perfection on his lapel!

Ceremony Decor

Wow your guests from the moment they arrive at your ceremony with beautiful tropical features throughout. Our all time favourite ceremony decoration at the moment is the Floral Archway! We are so in love with this look! Create this look with tropical leaves mixed amongst colourful flowers or white orchids depending on your chosen highlight tones.

Greet guests with a gorgeous Welcome Sign on your big day, this can also include your #weddinghashtag as a reminder to guests if they post pictures of your big day!

Line the aisle with tropical leaves and flowers as additional decor which can double as the decor at the wedding venue on the backs of chairs or on tables!
