Wedding: Laura & Trav

This was our first major wedding as our new and improved team of two! It was so wonderful to have such a relaxed bride with such an awesome, bold brief. Rich vibrant jewel tones, a marquee and church installation, wild and luxurious feel. Just yes! And my goodness – that crown?!  Stunning. Thanks to the very … Continue reading Wedding: Laura & Trav

Spring Subscriptions

We are half way through the Spring subscriptions already! We can hardly believe it. It’s been a bumpy and wet start for the garden but with the few days of sunshine we’ve had we are finally getting there. Thank goodness for anenome’s and daffodils who’ll bloom even without sunshine! Half way through and the ranunculus … Continue reading Spring Subscriptions

Wedding Favours

We’re so chuffed to announce our new line of wedding favours! We save lots of seed here at the farm and now you can give it as a gift to your guests! Seed packets of gorgeous, locally grown seed in beautifully designed packaging. At the moment we have sweetpeas and hollyhocks but we will have more … Continue reading Wedding Favours

Wedding: Julie & Dave

We loved getting Julie’s design brief: Tactile|Scented|Texture|Relaxed|Navy bridesmaids dresses and inspired by the hues of succulents. Pumped is an understatement! We started collecting succulents and propagating them straight away. We foraged for macrocarpa, privet berry, herbs and eucalypt leaves. As well as bouquets we created a giant urn arrangement as a backdrop to their intimate … Continue reading Wedding: Julie & Dave

Chandelier Building

Hopefully you’ve had some lovely glimpses of our latest wedding projects on social media… One of the fun challenges we had was creating a chandelier for the marquee at Magpies Nest… We we’re pretty thrilled with the result! Here’s a little glimpse into the construction process… After we made the mesh shell, we got busy … Continue reading Chandelier Building

Mantlepiece Dress Up

We played dress up with some left over blooms (and our somewhat exuberant foliage pickings)! And of course, it’s fun to have a bit of practice with large scale stuff from time to time… Wouldn’t it be nice to have a lush mantle all year round?

Dahlia Report

My first attempt at growing Dahlias has had its ups and downs but ultimately it’s been heaven! A third of the highly anticipated tubers didn’t sprout at all – despite them all having exactly the same treatment. I suppose the supplier is to blame, but what can you do when there is only one person in the … Continue reading Dahlia Report

Bridal Shoot: Grunge

How’s this for some golden hour light? This was such a fun shoot! We wanted to create a dramatic, edgy bouquet for a bride who’s after something a little different… Oh and then some girls on horses came along and insisted on us using their steed! Alright then!   Blooms: Dahlias, amaranth, roses, cosmos, dusty miller, … Continue reading Bridal Shoot: Grunge

Summer Subscriptions 4

It’s the end of the flower season here at the farm and lots of our blooms are going to bed (read: compost heap!) – but at the same time hundreds (!) of bulbs and seeds are being tucked into the soil to grow through the winter!   Dahlias and Zinnias have been our Summer main … Continue reading Summer Subscriptions 4
