The Wedding of Fiona and Martin 9th of May 2015

Location: Brookton Winery and The Vinyard Kitchen, Bickley Valley.

The wedding of Fiona and Martin wrapped up Botanica Naturalis' Autumn Wedding season with a happy, glittery, bright and cheerful location wedding that continues to inspire our current brides.

Working with Fiona {and of course Martin.... but mainly Fiona} for a year or so before their actual wedding day saw the combination of Fiona's handmade favorites mixed with her favorite Botanica Bridal ideas and themes of 2014 wedding fairs culminating in a wedding day that really reflected the couples bright and cheery disposition, happiness and their love.


Botanica Naturalis assisted Fiona in her wedding ideas and brought them to life, encouraging her love of glittered embellishments and love of flowers and wishes for an Autumnal theme. Mixing the two families floral loves together by using flowers native to both South Africa for Martin and Fiona's love of native blooms with glitter. Fiona had visited me at most of the bridal fairs before her big day where we chatted ideas. Picking out amber jars with glitter to hang on the hand foraged chairs for her ceremony and an isle of autumn leaves as her first decorations, moving onto a hanging tree arbor and floral swings above the bridal table. 

The choice of location, Bickley Valley in the hills of Perth was wonderful. The couple had bought a block of land near by and their family, based in Kalamunda frequently visited the beautiful surrounds of Brookside Winery. Eating Sunday lunch at The Vineside Kitchen located in the old shed at the winery and cellar door, renovated into a stunning venue with old feature doors looking out on the weeping willows inspire and food to warm your heart with its goodness. 

The day was beautiful and it is our pleasure at Botanica Naturalis to see our couples happiness play out in the most pretty of locations. Their Joy was truly in the air!

Congratulations to Fiona and Martin.  

The Reception that followed this Joyous celebration was held in the beautiful shed-restaurant that is The Vineyard Kitchen. Where the couple Danced the night away under shimmering fairy lights and enjoyed the amazing food served on big rustic platters, and of course Brooksides award winning wines.
