Whenever couples tell me their florist is Jade Mcintosh, I get a huge smile on my face. I know instantly they are in good hands and their flowers are going to be just stunning! I respect Jade and her team very much – they are experienced, creative and have incredible attention to detail. Here are some of their most memorable weddings in recent years. It is always a pleasure to work with them and help create such special and personal celebrations of love.
Madi & Jason – Mindaribba House, Tocal
This is one of my all-time favourites! It was a wonderful statement of the couple’s personality and exquisite taste, which I think can be summed up as ‘Outer Style, Inner Substance.’
Their colour palette was refined and timeless – blacks, whites, neutral tones and soft greens. I usually like to wear brightly coloured dresses on the wedding day, but after finding out about these simple and classic floral hues, I knew a sleek, dark jumpsuit would work much better.
At the time, arch-shaped arbours were the norm for wedding ceremonies. For this gorgeous couple, however, JMFS created something totally unique with a huge WOW factor – a circular construction featuring concentrations of roses and bold magnolia and viburnum foliage. The bridal party’s bouquets also included long-stemmed ivory and toffee-coloured blooms, which complemented their white dresses perfectly. These women and their modern elegance were serious #squadgoals.
Just before the couple recessed back down the aisle, I remember whispering to Madi that she shouldn’t be afraid to make her excitement known. She was finally going to be announced as Mrs Weiley, and she showed just how happy this made her by punching her flowers in the air! Their ceremony finished with one of the most stunning petal tosses I have ever seen too. White rose petals don’t just photograph well because they pop on camera – their fall rate always seems perfect for allowing the photographer time to get a great shot. A bit of creative teamwork between me, Madi and Jason’s lovely guests and Nat Salloum ensured this moment could be captured and treasured forever.
