Pastel Country Elegance – Photography by Byron Loves Fawn
Pastel Country Elegance
This bouquet is a popular design – it features silvery foliage that creates soft contrast to the varying rose varieties and mixed seasonal filler flowers. Very popular for country estate brides and those wanting a soft, romantic feel to the day while maintaining a degree of ‘timeless elegance’.

Garden Bouquet – Photography by Brian G Photography
This bouquet is one of my favourites. Also referred to as an “asymmetrical garden bouquet”, it typically has one large focal flower (the protea for example) and is supported by up to 8 varieties of pretty flowers that compliment the colours and styling of the couple’s day. This bouquet is popular for those brides who want something different but elegant and eye-catching. Photography by Brian G Photography.

Oversized Garden Bouquet -Free Form
This bouquet is another one where asymmetry and elegance speak volumes. Typically full of lush, cascading foliage and large, oversized blooms (like cottage roses or peonies), this bouquet is best suited to a full skirt and a strong arm! Simply stunning and one of our latest best sellers. Photography by Artography and Karen Buckle Photography.
Textural Australiana Posy – Photography by Karen Buckle Photography
Textural Australiana Posy
This bouquet is mostly a roundish posy shape, but very textural as you can see and usually has just 2-3 focal flowers in complimenting colours. Australiana foliage and english roses provide a lovely contrast and is suited to country weddings or even beach weddings where the couple are trying to bring the country to the sea! Always very textural and interesting to look at! Photography by Karen Buckle Photography.
Neat, Monochromatic Posy – Studio Belle Photography
Neat, Monochromatic Posy
This bouquet is typically round, neat and textural. Usually using varying shades of one colour to create a monochromatic, textural bouquet with depth and interest. Popular with modern brides and those who like clean, neat lines. Photography by Studio Belle Photography.
Neat Floral Posy
Neat Floral Posy
This bouquet is full of cottage roses and peonies – and no foliage! This is a bouquet for a bride who likes things neat, voluptuous and colourful. Typically a bouquet for the modern bride who is still a traditionalist at heart!
Teardrop Cascading Bouquet – Photography by Calli B Photography
Teardrop Cascading Bouquet
This bouquet ticks all the boxes for brides who are wanting a classic, elegant and neat look to their cascading bouquet. Typically made with a small amount of foliage to provide a ‘skeleton’ to the design, so brides opt for no foliage at all, making this one of our most expensive and time consuming bouquets to create! Well worth it in the end – this bouquet is full of up to 10 different varieties of flowers and is highly scented. Photography by Calli B Photography.
Seasonal Textural Bouquet – Photography by Artography
Season Textural Bouquet
This bouquet is comprised of whatever is in season for the wedding – our example here is purely autumnal! Sometimes made up of fruits and berries – this bouquet is for an adventurous bride with a vision for seasonal colour being a focal point for her wedding. Photography by Artography
If I had to pick an absolute favourite mine would be the Textural Australiana Posy, what about you? If you were as impressed with Julia’s professional insight and creations as much as we were, she is available Queensland and Australia-wide for floral designs (travel costs may be a little extra on-top of flowers as Julia is based on the Sunshine Coast).
