Wedding Flower Consultations save time and money

By Hermina Bevilacqua | September 3, 2017

Wedding flower consultations with a professional Wedding Flower Stylist will save you time and money on your wedding flowers, even from the first meeting. First step to saving time and money on your wedding flowers is to be prepared for the wedding flower consultation. The Wedding Flower Stylist will ask you for information about your wedding before the meeting by asking you to complete pre-consultation form.   Getting the completed form back to your Wedding Flower Stylist ensures you get the most out of the session.  The more detail the better as this will create a visual of you as a couple, and help with how flowers will reflect your personality and the style you are wanting to achieve. Some details you need to give your Wedding Flower Stylist before meeting up: Date, time of wedding because some flowers are only available in some seasons.  For example, Lily of the…

Fresh Wedding Flowers vs Faux Wedding Flowers

By Hermina Bevilacqua | August 23, 2017

Not sure whether to have fresh wedding flowers or faux for your special day?  Making a decision depends on a variety of factors. But before I get into this discussion I wanted to share with you my experience at the July Melbourne and Honeymoon Bridal Expo.  Our stand featured fresh wedding flowers only.  On display there were around 8 different bridal bouquet styles, with matching groom buttonholes, flower girls head circlets and floral crowns.  Couples visiting approached with curiosity, using phrases like, “are these real?”, “are they fresh?”, “are the flowers faux?”. Once they picked up and held the bouquet of their choice it was clear to see they were excited by the opportunity to feel what it would be like to carry a fresh flower wedding bouquet or wear a buttonhole. I was intrigued by their questions, which leads me to ask why a Bride would choose fresh or…

Traditional English White Flower Bridal Bouquet

By Hermina Bevilacqua | August 10, 2017

Model and actress Georgina Wilson chose a Traditional English bride look complete with a white and green bridal bouquet and gold tiara. The bridal bouquet is classic in style with flowers and foliage cascading, but with a contemporary twist in that the arrangement is relaxed and slightly deconstructed.  It compliments the hair, tiara and veil.  The bridal gown is designed and made for Georgina by Monique Lhuillier.  Having anything custom made for your wedding day just makes the planning process so much exciting.  Discussing your wedding ideas and dreams about how you want your bridal bouquet or gown to look creates anticipation for it all coming together for your wedding day.  Camberwell Florist creates bespoke bridal bouquets that fit perfectly with you and your style.  Combined with our knowledge of flowers, 25 years of experience in events styling, skill in creating all styles of bridal bouquets (and there are so…
