Romantic North Carolina Garden Wedding


From ‘I will’ to ‘I do’, Shannon and Lane’s wedding journey was one that focused on the close bonds of their loving families. The groom proposed on a family Thanksgiving holiday in North Carolina, and six months later, they exchanged vows nearby, in an intimate ceremony and reception that honoured their near and dear. This gorgeous wedding by HEATHER PAYNE with florals by one of our faves ABANY BAUER features in Issue 8 of MAGNOLIA ROUGE MAGAZINE.

From day one, I wanted an intimate outdoor garden themed wedding. I’m passionate about surrounding myself with pretty things, and I thought that a garden theme would be sweet and romantic. Seeing Lane get emotional during his vows really showed me how much that moment and the union between the two of us meant to him. I’ve never felt so loved.

“I asked my florist to design a very natural bouquet of garden roses, peonies and daisies. She ended up incorporating large coral charm peonies, as well as a few other lovely accent flowers in my colour scheme of coral, blush, white, bone and blue, and finished it off with beautiful hand dyed silk coral ribbons from my mother-in-law.”

Simple and raw Autumn Inspiration


This gorgeous shoot by BUBBLEROCK is timely for downunder brides given technically we’re now in Autumn (although it sure didn’t feel like it as I sweltered under the sun yesterday!!). Stylist Veronique from QUELQUE CHOSE DE BLEU wanted to create a simple atmosphere through her decor and flowers, taking advantage of whatever was available around her: foraged flowers from the garden, simple pottery plates and glasses and a big wooden plank from her grandfather’s workshop. She wanted to create something grounding, simple, and very elegant and she’s certainly achieved that and more.

The invitation and other stationery were done on slates, retaining the earthy theme throughout, the menu is a calligraphic print on cotton material. The choice of raw material was the base of the vision for this inspiration shoot. The bouquet, centrepieces, crown and flower belt were a mix of foliage and flowers, structured and wild all at the same time.

This is one of those shoots you just want to jump through the screen into and be a part of… looks like such an idyllic way to spend the day! Beautiful job team!
