{BN Real Weddings} Sophie & Allister 21.02.2015

 Botanica Naturalis 2015 Summer/Spring season bought us some of our favorite brides and grooms, this Down South Yallingup Wedding was one of the best of the year.

Staying down in Dunsborough for the whole weekend and helping set up the big day was delightful. Full of sun and flowers we stayed at an old Railway carriage that, we now always stay at for our South West weddings. There is a big wooden porch on the front of the rail carriage, where in the cool of the morning sunrise we sit with kangaroos looking on crafting our bouquets and hair flowers. So peaceful and such a joy.

Allister and Sophie were married in February in Yallingup, 2015.

Botanica Naturalis was there from the beginning. Meeting with Sophie for coffees in our little Wray ave studio Sophie knew what she was designing from the start designing a beautiful theme and color pallet of Summer Corals with Moss green and shades of apricot... with so many ideas refining them was easy and a fun process. With the main focus being on the beautiful colors of flowers from the garden and the different romantic types such as Dahlias, Roses, David Austin Roses, Orange berry, Hypericum berry with seasonal summer Tuber roses & Peppercorn, Gladiolus and a good mix of Native Foliage's to add texture.

The Delivery of the bouquets is Botanica Naturalis' favorite part of the day absolutely, the delight and joy on Sophie's face was priceless.

Setting Up the Ceremony Arbor

This is the biggest natural Stick Arbor structure that Botanica Naturalis has ever made for a ceremony.  A Suspended Archway of large branches and sticks moving across the two trees at the top of the isle with hanging Carnation strings and clusters of Roses, Princess Protea. Measuring more than 5M wide the boys looked so elegant waiting underneath it.

The Ceremony {Yallingup Brook, Caves rd. Yallingup}

When ever I hear Vance Joy sing "She is something to behold ~ Elegant and bold ~She is electricity ~Running to my soul, oh ...And I could easily lose my mind..."

I think of Sophie Bride walking across the lawn at Yallingup Brook. She strolled, head held high with such grace perfectly in time with the music and was something to behold. 

 

After a breath taking ceremony, the licence was signed in the pond side gazebo and then confetti rained!
