Love and Fire
Updated: Feb 17, 2020
2019 saw us lucky enough to be asked to do 4 couples' wedding flowers. Such a privilage and something i didn't see myself doing 5 years ago! So much thought and planning is put into being able to grow flowers for a wedding and what I learnt from last year is that we can grow as much as we can but the local conditions will decide and often provide exactly what is needed at the right time.
The peach trees and wattles in bloom for our first wedding, sang their seasonal chorus and what a special treat it was to sit in amongst that beauty and to see the bees loving it too.
The next two weddings had us seeking out our local flower growing community for support and the generosity of those growers lit a spark inside me and took a huge weight off my shoulders at the same time.
Our final wedding for the year was set amongst a backdrop of burnt forest at Crowdy National Park - we found roadside grown amaranth on route which for me was the finishing touch I needed to tie it all together.
We evacuated our home the following day and the summer became one of worry and dry but we are still here and we believe that growing plants - food and flowers - is one of the most important things we can do.
