myra, from my violet and a wedding


the florist: myra, from my violet

location: 4/17-21 george st redfern
contact: 02 9319 3556; 0405 910 029
website: myviolet.com.au

the event: a wedding

favourite bridal bouquet combination: my favourite combination generally changes with each season. spring is closest to my heart and without fail, i lose it over hellabore... just adding a few stems to a posy or arrangement, adds a touch of the wild and whimsical and makes me melt.

favourite colour palette for church and reception: the girly-girl in me is a sucker for pretty pastels and love the whole marie antoinnette palette, but the latina in me can't pass up fuchsia tones, watermelon, lime and peach...love!

three top tips for successful wedding styling:
- think outside the box
- work with what you have
- attention to detail

best thing about doing wedding flowers: i have been lucky to have met brides who share the same love for all things garden and vintage, together we chat for hours and lose ourselves in the endless options for their wedding. the end result is always crazy beautiful, tears, lots of hugs and a new friend.

most memorable moment from a wedding you have done flowers for: it would have to be at my own wedding, and my husbands speech. he thanked all our guests for coming and added how beautiful he thought the reception looked (he hadn't seen it prior to us arriving nor had he any idea of what I was going to do) - "everything you see here around you, my wife thought up, it all came from her mind...her imagination.  we are all pretty much inside myra's brain and this is what it's like". my friends still remind me of his speech and how much it moved them.

do bridezillas really exist :).....yes!
