“Oh my GOODNESS what an astronomically amazing job you did on the flowers and reception styling for Grace Woodrow’s wedding! Wow you had me gasping!!” – Ann-Louise Buck
Kate recently had the pleasure of working with a number of people to produce this beautiful photo shoot that was photographed by Anthony Hoang and featured in Hello May. This is just a little glimpse for more flower photos pop over to Kate Dawes or for the magazine feature visit Hello May.
Soft textures and colours in muted shades of peach, pink, Wedgewood blue and mauve set the palette for this vintage/French Inspired wedding
The flowers give a quirky French “look” with a slightly vintage feel. The touches of lavender used among the table flowers through to the creeping vine on the ceremony doors emulate the French element
I used some White porcelain and vintage style glass vases to create the table settings….all available for hire
The Vintage look was created by using David Austin and open garden roses, Queen Anne Lace, Dusty Miller as well as other interesting textures in foliage, flowers and berries
Thanks to all the other contributors for their lovely work.

One only needs to look to the streets to see the neon trend in full force. Fashionistas and fashionmisters of all ages are changing the way people see neon, from tight and bright, to fluro fresh. Fluorescent palettes have also become extremely popular in art galleries all over the world, with artists like Yago Hortal making a name for himself with his neon canvases.
So why not bring a little neon to your home this Christmas and deck out your living room with a bit of colour. Have a look at our fun play date with neon, Christmas and of course, flowers. Enjoy!
