Celebrant Julie Muir's favourite JMFS weddings





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.

Bronwyn & Michael – Stonehurst Cedar Creek, Wollombi

Natives are such a popular choice for weddings, but this was the first time I’d seen a set-up that heavily featured orange and yellow hues (as opposed to the traditional reddish-pink proteas). The paper daises, bright billy buttons and banksia foliage, which appear to have been cut into a zig-zag pattern, were beautiful and quite unusual.


Sometimes, bigger is definitely better as well! The large star sea ferns in particular gave the bridal bouquet a wild and carefree look, and perfectly matched the whimsical vibe of the day. Although it was pouring with rain, the ceremony was still incredibly romantic! I also had to think on my feet after the ‘I dos,’ getting Michael and Bronwyn to lean on each other’s backs to sign their paperwork – a symbolic gesture of how they would lean on each other during their marriage. This made for a truly unique signing photo under a bright arbour.

Liz & Andy – Wallalong House, Wallalong

This wedding was all about interesting colours and texture for me. Liz had worked in the events industry for years, so had been to more than her fair share of weddings – she was adamant she wanted something unique!


A custom-crafted arbour with an array of blue flowers, rose gold-sprayed dried fan palms and a delicate swath of indigo-coloured fabric created an unforgettable ceremony set-up from design heaven. All of the florals were gathered together so cleverly as well – fluffy, full-headed white ranunculus, shimmering, tinted baby’s breath, billy buttons, gold hanging amaranthus, dusty miller, leather fern and dollar gum.


The bridal party’s bouquets were tied with navy trailing ribbons, which took this unusual and brave colour palette to the next level. As a self-confessed lover of ribbons (read: hoarder!), this is one of my favourite bouquet looks ever! The inky ribbons enhanced the richly coloured flowers, including blue anemones and seaholly, and really complemented the mens’ suits as well.

Emily & Nick – Hunters Quarter, Pokolbin

I remember this wedding so clearly because it was the first time I’d worked with JMFS. Celebrants have vendor wish lists too!


Roses are the ultimate go-to when it comes to romance. They were the perfect choice for this ceremony not only because they looked gorgeous in the bridal party’s bouquets, but because as a flower, they are known to represent new beginnings and everlasting love as well. All flowers have meanings, also known as floriography or the ‘language of flowers.’


As always, JMFS managed to envision a beautiful colour combination, striking a balance of soft watermelon and bold red shades to effortlessly complement the wine-coloured bridesmaids’ dresses. These made for a passionate yet fun display, which sums up Emily and Nick’s relationship! The addition of dark and moody foliage was just stunning as well.
