Recently some great friends of mine got together at The White Peony Bridal Boutique, a gorgeous new bridal dress boutique in Victoria BC, to shoot this lovely editorial on flowers as accessories. We got together with some of the best wedding hair and make up stylists here in Victoria. The incredibly talented Mel Baird of Melanie Baird Make Up and Elena Roberts of Conscious Hair by Elena led the charge in hair and make up while the sweet girls Christine and Jessica of Mille Fiori Spa took care of manicures and pedicures. The brilliant eyes of Jenna & Tristan | Photographers spent the day shooting all the gorgeous models in their beautiful gowns adorned with a selection of flowers as various forms of accessories.
Each model was dressed in gorgeous dresses and accessories from The White Peony. Verbena styled each model and setting, the result was an afternoon of beautiful brides one after the other.

Maybe it is because the following weddings palette brings together the best of nature’s colours. Blue like the sky and the ocean, green like the trees and the grass and white like the clouds, whatever the reason this palette re-kindles my love for the spectacular hydrangeas. Frankie and Ryan’s wedding has done just that. What a beautiful day it was, not only was the weather perfect but the hydrangeas were in a word exquisite!
We used them everywhere from the bouquets and hair flowers, to the large arrangements for the church and the centrepieces. The bouquets were a beautiful combination classic whites and greens with Frankie’s bouquet incorporating more beautiful blues and purples
This couple was a breeze to work with, I loved Frankie’s style and quick descsion making, it made this wedding a pleasure to work on.
We used masses of blue, white and green hydrangeas along with hints of vibrant purple agapanthus, and veronica in two large arrangements that flanked the altar in the church. The ceremony was held in the lovely and quaint heritage church, Holy Trinity in North Saanich. This church sits right on the water overlooking the beautiful Patricia Bay.
Watching the bridal party and all of their family and friends gather in the yard of this lovely little church, was a picture right out of the english country side.
The reception got under way under the marquee out at the beautiful Sea Cider, guests were treated to a fantastic spread from Truffles Catering and all was documented by the brilliant photography of Helene Cyr.
Congratulations Frankie & Ryan, it was a fantastic expirience putting this wedding together with you, from start to finish!

Last week we had the distinct pleasure of travelling up island to Genoa Bay to create the flowers for a wedding at the SPECTACULAR Bird’s Eye Cove Farm. I couldn’t resist asking one of my favourite photographers to come along with us to document from start to finish. Emmy of E/A Photography, the following images are a little behind the scenes peek into a travelling floral designer…..
The transformation begins, the tables are set with a “scape” of potted herbs, large mounds of fluffy white hydranges, soft lisianthus with a nest of herbs like sage, mint, and rosemary. Candles are everywhere and menus and napkins tied with a blue ribbon and placed at every place.
The bouquets are finished and delivered, smiles and tears are shared…
Large arrangements are built in the ceremony site which sits beside a rolling pasture where Zach lives with all his family. If we could have fit him in our van and brought him home we would have. Just one of the many reason this place captured our hearts.
And the team that keeps me laughing till it hurts, smiling my face in half, and constantly amazing me with the fountain of generosity, love and talent. I am the luckiest girl in the world, because I get to do what I love surrounded by some of the best human beings ever.

It has been a long cold winter and early spring around these parts, but apparanetly it was all leasing up to today. The most brilliant day of sunshine and gorgeous blue skies. The reason we all love it here so much. A perfect back drop for the spring wedding of Stacey & Jeff at the Interfaith Chapel at The University of Victoria, Finnerty Gardens.
This was a beautiful combination of spring whites and greens, with subtle touches of antique dusty mauve roses. A gorgeous combination of roses, peonies, and hints of flowering mock orange.
It gets better with the bouquets, and heady scented combination of peonies, lilacs, lily of the valley, freesia and more. They were just gorgeous, and the pictures of the whole day and especially of the bride, can’t come fast enough! I have been waiting to work the Kelsey Goodwin and today was the day!
